5 DIY Home Improvement Projects to Tackle This Spring

If you’ve been living in your home for a while (or are simply sick of your current furnishings) you may have the urge to remodel. Remodeling is great way to revamp your space and give your home a fresh look. However, the costs can add up and remodeling your whole home can become an expensive endeavor. Luckily, many home improvement projects are simple enough to accomplish on your own. If you have the time and would like to save some money, you might want to consider tackling some of these DIY home-remodeling projects this spring.

  1. Replace your kitchen cabinets. 

If you’re up for installing DIY kitchen cabinets, doing so can save you a pretty penny. By ordering ready to assemble or RTA cabinets, you can gather your tools and install your cabinets on your own. New cabinets are one of the easiest ways to add a fresh, clean vibe to your kitchen, and spring is the perfect time to tackle this home improvement project.

  1. Install a kitchen or bathroom backsplash.

Much like DIY kitchen cabinets, installing your own backsplash is a great option for saving money while still achieving your desired new look. Backsplashes are a fundamental element to any kitchen or bathroom. They come in a variety of colors, textures and patterns — from a beautiful natural stone backsplash to glossy glass subway tile — so you’ll have tons of options to choose from. Once you’ve found a style suitable for your home, the installation is easy and requires only a few materials.

  1. Update your kitchen and bathroom countertops.

Countertops are an important part of your kitchen or bathroom. Not only are they functional, but also they add dimension, style, contrast and color to the whole room. It is important to choose a style you enjoy and a design that complements your home. Countertops are available in a variety of materials and colors, depending on your budget and aesthetic.

  1. Redo your flooring.

Ripping up the existing flooring throughout your home probably seems like a big job to undertake — and it is. However, the hardest part is deciding what style of flooring you’re going to replace it with. Flooring materials include tile, vinyl, laminate, wood, and more — leaving homeowners seeing question marks. Before deciding to redo your flooring, it is a good idea to compare the samples you are considering to other elements of your home. You want to make sure your new floors won’t clash with your natural stone backsplash or granite countertops. Once you’ve chosen the material you’re going to use, installation is pretty straightforward and can typically be completed within a few weeks.

  1. Upcycle old furniture.

Are your dining room chairs terribly outdated? Does your coffee table have a little too much wear and tear? Transforming old furniture into new pieces is a fun way to get new decor for a fraction of the price. Antique barn doors can be transformed into gorgeous headboards and old beds can be restyled and turned into a new bench for the hall. There are tons of ways to create new pieces from old furniture with a little creativity and craftiness.
