5 DIY Projects to Add Value to Your Home

Interior design trends don’t last as long as your house can stand. It only takes a few years for some of the details you once took pride in to lose their appeal even to your own eyes. No worries, we’ve got updates and upgrades to bring your house back to its original glory.

Contrary to popular belief, some drastic changes to your home can be implemented without having someone do it for you. The result wouldn’t look too shabby for a DIY work either. We have 5 projects that can transform your house one section at a time.

1. Add Crown Molding and Baseboard

Crown moldings are the panels on the top edge of the walls where it meets the ceiling. The baseboard, on the other hand, is the opposite as it’s the protruding panel on the bottom of the wall where it joins the floor surface.

The former is purely for decoration as it’s sometimes patterned with intricate swirls and sometimes even images, as in art sculptures, whereas the latter protects the wall from scratches, kicks, and abrasion.

Purposeful or not, both serve as a built-in decor where it’s impossible to put any. Both are easy to install for any DIYer and don’t require many tools or supplies. If you have a handy pin nailer, it will make your life a lot easier because you’ll be able to fly through the installation.

2. Upgrade to a Rain Shower Head

We’ll bet most of you will have playing in the rain as one of your best childhood memories. A regular shower head doesn’t quite replicate the feeling of water running down from above as if rain, so maybe your bathroom is due for a little upgrade.

Rain shower heads have been the most coveted type and it’s not just in hotels that you can enjoy them. There are different types that you can go see in home and furniture stores and installing them doesn’t require some mysterious skills.

3. Wainscot Some Walls

Wainscoting, in the simplest sense, is the panels of wood applied to the bottom half of the wall. In olden, pre-insulation time, it was a way to keep a room warm. Nowadays, they also serve a decorative purpose.

Wainscoting can be similar to applying crown moldings and baseboards, but they take up more space on the wall and are quickly visible. Like the latter two, modern versions also have patterns and sculpted parts for details.

There are different forms of wainscoting: board and batten, beadboard, and raised panel among some of the most attractive. Each have their own charm that caters to different tastes from old school to classy to industrial.

4. Replace Fixtures

It doesn’t take a designer to figure out that the little details showcase so much about the house and the person living in it. Initially, drawers, cabinets, outlets would have matched the rest of the house. As trends change, you’ll want everything to adapt with the times.

Instead of replacing the big things in the house, mix up the fixtures on them. These include but are not limited to door knobs, cabinet knobs, drawer handles, outlet covers, switch plates, and curtain rods, or at least the ends that close them off.

5. Revamp the Kitchen

If you have to pick just one part of the house to change up, it has to be the kitchen. Without spending too much and relying on other people, you can paint or stain the built-in cabinets, put up new tiles on the walls and floor.

If you still have that generic white refrigerator, transform its look into stainless steel with a stick and peel film. It’s true what they say: when the kitchen is all done up, neat, and well-decorated, it becomes easy to feel the same about the rest of the house.

Revamp Your Kitchen

Your house is an extension of you and the minute details are telling of your personality and taste. As you change, so should your home. You wouldn’t dress yourself with outdated clothes, so don’t live in a space with outdated looks. Hopefully, these cost-savvy DIY projects are as fun as they are rewarding!
