Sometimes, our homes need a little refreshing every now and then. Whether you are on a tight budget or you are looking for a few simple weekend projects, there are many easy and inexpensive ways to spruce up your home this season. Take a look at the following ideas for simple ways you can integrate a little DIY-magic to update your home.
Update Your Home’s Entryway
Enhance your doorstep with a few splashes of greenery, a seasonal welcome mat, or a new wreath. And if you want to crank it up another notch: paint the door a new color!
Install a Ceiling Fan in a Warm Room
It’s not uncommon in Florida homes to have one or two rooms that get more hours of sunlight than the rest of the house. This often means some parts of your house may feel significantly warmer than the rest. Try bringing in a ceiling fan to cool it off without having to crank up that AC system of yours.
Swap Out Cabinet Handles
One of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to update a few rooms in your home is by replacing outdated and traditional cabinet handles with newer, more modern ones. For a bigger project, try painting the cabinet doors a new color before you put new handles on!
Hide Your Outdoor AC Unit
If you’re really into landscaping and have a bit of a green thumb, consider hiding your outdoor AC unit from view. While it’s important that your AC stay clear of debris and dirt, there are creative ways you can hide an unappealing metal box from taking away from your lawn’s curbside appeal.
Decorate Your Vinyl or Linoleum Floors
Turn your home from shabby to chic by freshening up your floors with a little paint. Whether you simply cover up the outdated patterns with one simple color or get creative with a pattern, this idea can update traditional looking rooms to be quite modern with little expense.
Paint Your AC Vents
Many older homes in Florida have metal AC vents that may not match 21st century decor. Spruce them up with a new coat of paint that matches your furniture, floors or walls better than the previous color.
Replace Your Air Filter
It may not be as visible as the rest of your home, but this is one which helps you feel the difference with cleaner, fresher air. Change out your air filter once a month to boost your indoor air quality and make all your other home updates worth the work.
