16 Cheap and Easy Ways To Give Your Home A Makeover

If your home needs a new look but you don’t want to invest thousands of dollars to fix it up, there are so many budget-friendly ways to achieve a successful home makeover. For those of you who find it a little difficult to keep interest in DIY projects, all of the ideas on this list are not only cost-friendly but simple enough to make them worth the extra effort while still making an impact.

From the kitchen to the bathroom, there are several cheap and easy ways to make rooms look like new. Sure, it might be easier to buy your way to a home makeover, but it’s also just as satisfying when you do it yourself.

If you’re looking to achieve that Pinterest-worthy room, change the mood of your place, give it a new look that fits your style, or you just want to spruce things up with some home decor you made with your own two hands, here are 16 ways to achieve that room (and home) you’ve always wanted.

1. Changing the color of your kitchen cabinets. As opposed to completely changing the cabinets altogether, which can be costly and take a much longer time, why not try just grabbing a fresh color of paint? This is one DIY project that might take a little longer than the others but could have a huge impact on the feel and aesthetic of one of the most important rooms in your home.

2. Change the door handles to your cabinets. Whether you want to add to that new coat of paint or find painting your cabinets a new color too time-consuming or too much of a commitment, changing the door handles doesn’t take much. It’s easy for the handles you originally had to become worn or outdated, so finding a new look that compliments your kitchen is an easy way to change things up.

3. Change your kitchen’s backsplash. You can use a self-stick one that you can put up yourself. Choose a mosaic with an accent color that really brings out the rest of your kitchen, whether it be to bring out the color in your countertop or the color of the walls. Instead of doing a mosaic of multiple colors, you could also choose to stick to one; maybe an all-white kitchen backsplash is what you need, or a metallic backsplash for a more modern look.

4. Find a new bedspread for your room. It doesn’t have to be an expensive one, either! Usually, the first place I’ll check out is IKEA. My duvet cover and sheets were under $100 and the quality was still there. Focus on finding a new color or pattern to give the room a new vibe (just make sure it works well with your paint color and furniture).
