Want to spruce up your place, but you’re short on time? Try out one of these home improvement ideas that won’t take long but will still make a big splash.

  • Add a Backsplash in Your Kitchen: Protect your walls and add style to your kitchen by adding a backsplash.
  • Re-do Your Bathroom Cabinets: Give them a new coat of paint and swap out the hardware for a different look.
  • Revive Wood Floors: If your wood floors are starting to look dull, shine them up with polish.
  • Update a Light Fixture: Make a big impact by swapping out a dated light fixture for a more appealing one. Hire a licensed electrician if you need help.
  • Create a Shiplap Wall: Install a shiplap accent wall to add more personality to your home.
  • Organize Your Bedroom Closet: Donate clothes you no longer want and add an organizer to make your closet more functional.
  • Install a Stair Runner: Have hardwood stairs? Add some warmth and grip by adding padding and a runner with a staple gun and upholstery tacks.
  • Add Crown or Baseboard Molding: Bring charm to a room by installing crown or baseboard molding.
  • Upgrade to Smart Devices: Whether you want a smart thermostat, doorbell or light, there are plenty of devices that can add convenience to your home.
  • Take Advantage of Unused Space: Is your basement, spare bedroom or attic underutilized? Give it a purpose! Turn it into a home gym, home office, game room or playroom.
