In the wake of COVID-19, people are spending more time at home than ever before. If you’re looking for ways to stay productive this summer, now is the time to give some attention to the interior of your home.
Need ideas? We’ve got all the details you need to make the little transformations go a long way for your home. Here are interior home improvement project ideas for both large and small budgets!
Painting & New Hardware
Interior painting is a quick and budget-friendly project that can give your home a much-needed colorful boost.
Dusty and muted greys and blues can add a calm and clean feel to any room, especially a bathroom or bedroom. You can add space to any room by painting it with lighter and softer colors. Rooms with large windows and high ceilings tend to lend better to reds and dark colors.
It’s not recommended to paint indoors when temperatures soar over 90°F. But with the fluctuating temperatures in Ohio, it’s easy to save an interior painting project for a cool summer day.
If you can’t afford a full-scale kitchen or bathroom renovation this summer, make your interior paint job go the distance with new hardware. Cabinet and drawer hardware can subtly enhance any room, and with fresh color on the walls and new decor, you can upgrade your interior on a budget.
Ceiling Fan & New Light Installation
Are you looking to cut down on your air conditioning use this summer? Ceiling fans not only add decorative flair to a room but can help improve air circulation and reduce energy costs.
Installing a ceiling fan may seem ideal for spring and summer, but it’s also a worthwhile project that you can take advantage of year-round. When you adjust the settings on your fan base, you can make the blades spin in reverse to distribute warmer air throughout your home. Plus, no matter if your interior design layout is minimalist, modern, contemporary, or shabby chic, ceiling fans come in all sorts of styles. New light fixtures can also add value and ambiance, making any room feel more spacious and cozy.
Mini Bathroom Makeover
Bathroom remodeling is no easy task, but if you’re looking for a budget-friendly home improvement project to complete this summer, consider doing a mini bathroom makeover. Whether your home has one large bathroom or if you’re looking to transform your powder room, there are a few ways to approach this project.
You could give your bathroom an easy spruce up by painting and adding plants and new textiles like shower curtains, towels, and an area rug. You could also add shelving to better organize your toiletries and other bathroom essentials.
If you have a more flexible budget, you could also replace and upgrade your sink fixture, countertops, wall mirror, or toilet.
A newly finished basement can add space, functionality, style, and value to your home － and there’s no shortage of options when it comes to ideas for this project.
Depending on your basement’s current layout, you could potentially add a bedroom or bathroom. You could also transform your basement into an entertainment room, a gym area, a guest bedroom, or a play area. These projects will require a larger budget to work with; but even if you’re not ready to remodel your basement entirely, you can get a head start this summer by removing clutter, replacing the floors, and adding new insulation or wall paneling.
Whether you want to start with smaller projects or tackle the kitchen in one go, there’s an abundance of ways to go about a kitchen renovation.
What are some areas of your kitchen that could use the most attention? What are some projects that would help improve the functionality of your kitchen?
Replacing your countertops, installing a kitchen island, or building off your existing counter space can make for better experiences while cooking, baking, and entertaining. Installing new cabinets can increase your kitchen’s storage space and also complement your kitchen’s interior decorating.
