Home Improvements You Can Make When You’ve Got a Spare Weekend

Disclaimer: This is a collaborative post. 

There are plenty of home improvement projects you can tackle if you’ve got a weekend to spare. You don’t need any kind of unique skill set, but you will need a selection of necessary tools. If you want to transform your home, it can be done in a couple of days and doesn’t have to cost hundreds of pounds. Owning a home is a special thing, but it does come with specific responsibilities. However, there’s also the added benefit that you can change things as and when you feel like it and create a home you can be proud of. Next time you’ve got some time to spare, look back over the following list and choose something to do.

  • A Fresh Coat of Paint: Transform your front door, living room, kitchen or any other room in your home by giving it a fresh lick of paint. If you’re feeling really adventurous, you could try your hand at painting the outside of your house. It’s a super cheap project to tackle and can make a significant difference to your home.
  • Declutter: This is a home improvement you should be doing on a regular basis. It’s very easy to gather items around you, many of which you’ll never actually use. Once you’ve tidied up and got rid of the unwanted items, you might be surprised how much space you’ve actually got in your home.
  • Update Your Hardware: What we’re referring to here is the handles, knobs and taps that might be looking a little outdated. When your kitchen needs refreshing, this is one of the simplest jobs to do. It’s also another inexpensive option if you want a new look.
  • Install a Splashback: There are a variety of materials you can use if you want to add a splashback in your kitchen. Tiles of contrasting colours can look very attractive or choose stainless steel for a crisp, modern look.
  • Change Your Radiators: You’ll need some specialist tools for this job, but once you’ve got them, it’s a piece of cake – as long as you remember to turn the mains water off and drain your heating system before you start taking things apart. There are some very attractive and stylish radiators available online at warmrooms.co.uk.
  • Paint Inside Your Cabinets: If your cabinets are looking a little tired, bring them back to life by painting the inside with a bright colour. Take the doors off, and everyone will be able to see what a great job you’ve made of it.
  • Deep Clean Outside Surfaces: You might have forgotten about the outside of your home while you were tucked up warm inside over the winter. Now that spring is almost upon you, get outside and pressure wash all those dirty surfaces. It’s not going to be long before you’ll be wanting to spend time outside with friends and family. Don’t leave the cleaning until the last minute and miss out on all the fun!

There are so many jobs you could be doing. Try these first, and before you know it, you’ll be confident enough to take on more challenging home improvement projects.
