As we continue with social distancing, most of us are looking for some productive way to use our time. While you may not want to put time and money into a large home improvement project now, there are many small DIY projects that can make a big difference.
Need some inspiration? Here are a few of our favorite ideas.
Pull Out brush. A coat of paint is one of the most effective home improvement projects and cost. Even better, there is no limit to how creative you can get. Add an accent wall, select a few new colors, or just give your current refresh the color-scheme.
Freshening Up Your Bathroom. upgrade the small bathroom can also make a big difference. Consider replacing hardware, such as faucets, adding decorative lights, put up some wallpaper to create an accent wall, or deep-cleaning tile and grout.
Add Multiple Isolation. Adding insulation to your home will not make it look any different, it can make a big difference when it comes to your electricity bill. This will make it easier to regulate the temperature of your home, making it more comfortable throughout the year and will also help to reduce your carbon footprint.

Installing a Programmable Thermostat. A “smart” thermostat can go a long way toward lowering your electric bill. These upgrades also popular among home buyers. If you’re thinking about selling the near future, this is a home improvement project you will want to add to the list of “to-do” you.
Have Some Fun With Spray Paint. You might be surprised how much you can do with a few cans of spray paint. Because you can easily order them online, this is a good idea for those who are under strict orders to stay at home.
Spray paint outdoor light fixtures, mirrors, door handles, and floor vents to make them look new again. Use stencils and spray paint some color to customize things like the kids desk chair or even bed frames.
Door handles and hinges Update. If you’re like most people, you can not remember the last time you replace the door handles and hinges. It is also possible that they have seen better days. Changing out the faded brass hardware and replace it with a black matte finish will give your home, clean modern look with a very minimal amount of effort.
Rearrange Your Furniture. Lack of money? No problem! Just moving around your furniture can give your home a new look. Experimenting with several different layouts and see which one most appeals to you and your family. The best part about this project is that if you decide you do not like the way it looks, you can always just put it back.
Organize and declutter. Get rid of the junk in your home can have a big impact. Take the extra time to resolve the garbage drawer, closet, and maybe even your garage. Throw away anything that is worthless, and set aside things you want to donate or sell. Bags or boxes and store them in a designated room or a corner of your garage until you can get them out of your house.
Soon, we hope to begin to move back to the “new normal” that allows us to go back to life as we know it before it began. When this time comes, you’ll be glad to have your friends and family to your home and show off your new project!
