Luckily, there are several home remodeling projects you can do in just a short time frame. Not only will you feel confident about your home and what it has to offer but your guests will have that satisfaction of a more comfortable feeling in your home sweet home.
As the holidays are right around the corner and will be here before you know it, here are some quick renovating ideas to help make your home and holiday season a breeze.
- Sprucing up the backsplash
For most people, their kitchen is the main attraction of their home. The kitchen has a lot to do when it comes to the holidays. Could be cooking, hangouts, and, most importantly, decorating. With a new backsplash, your kitchen can have a whole new look without even worrying about replacing the appliances or cabinets. The most popular backsplashes right now are the modern tones which include tan, white, beige, grey, etc., and the bright dark color tones which include black, blue, dark grey, and brown. These are all wonderful color tones to catch your guests’ attention.
- Touch up your fireplace
Cozying up by the fireplace with a warm fuzzy blanket is something that is a must during the holiday season. It’s typically a central point as well. So why not take the opportunity to revamp it? The biggest trend with fireplaces right now in 2022 is, that instead of the bulky motifs, a more minimalistic approach with neutral colors that blend into the wall. The focus of that is to keep the focus on the flames instead of the detailing. Your guests will love it!
- A fresh coat of paint
Are you tired of your cabinets looking crusty and rusty but don’t want to pay the money for all new cabinets? Well perfect, because you can repaint your cabinets for a fresh, new look for less. This is a quick and easy facelift for your cabinets. It’s an affordable option to lighten up your beautiful kitchen for the holidays. Painting might not be everyone’s favorite job to do so you might consider hiring a professional to get it done in an efficient manner without all the fuss while you focus on other holiday tasks.
- Installing a Buffet Table
Do you need more space in your kitchen to put food and drinks on for your guests? Have you ever thought about purchasing a buffet table? Not only can you purchase one, but you could reach out to one of your local home contractors to have one installed for you. This would be the perfect place to have that extra counter space for the upcoming holidays. The cool thing about the buffet table is that it doesn’t have to match the rest of your kitchen, there are ways to contrast your cabinets.
- New Flooring
Putting new flooring in your home is definitely something you can do on your own. This project calls for one person, but if you are in a time crunch and want it to be done within a certain amount of time then, most certainly, you can have more than one person to help you. Having more than just yourself is a plus because that means more hands to finish the job. If you want to go the extra mile and get hardwood or tile, then I would invest in a contractor. With a professional, they can get the job done much faster depending on the square footage of the room.
- Fixing Up the Bathroom
Even bathroom renovations can be done in a short amount of time, depending on what you’re having done. Bathrooms are a smaller space so the remodeling for that typically doesn’t take more than up to a week. These fixer-uppers include painting the walls, replacing light fixtures, toilets, and/or faucets, and could even include anything on the electrical side. If, however, you are thinking of replacing the vanity or retiling the shower, expect a longer timeframe if you are doing this on your own, closer to 4 weeks. Your guests will be amazed when they walk into your new upscale bathroom.
- Enhancing the Curb Appeal
Did you happen to forget the exterior of your home! When your guests arrive at your astonishing home, the outside gives the first impression. So, if you want people to be stunned when they drive up your driveway then you need to start thinking about what you can do to make your home sparkle this holiday season. Check the paint, electrical, and lights, make sure your plants are alive and healthy and the landscaping is trimmed back. Also, it’s very important to make sure everything is up to date and holiday ready.
If you had your sights set on updating your home before the holidays, now is the time to get started. Don’t let the holidays sneak up on you. If your wish list seems too big to tackle alone, reach out to your local contractor to get started.
