Small House Projects You Should Consider Tackling

There isn’t always time or budget for taking on large remodeling projects. While it may be nice to have a brand new kitchen, it’s not practical for everyone. That’s why you need to get creative with what you have and what you’re capable of completing. Take inventory of your home and make a note of a few practical tasks you could see yourself attempting.

There are many different ways to improve your space without needing to move or knock down walls. A few improvements here and there go a long way. Your time spent making updates definitely won’t be wasted. See small house projects you should consider tackling.


Decorate your Living Room

Start by sprucing up one of the most used rooms in the home. The living room is a great place to make small changes. Begin by throwing down an area rug if you have hardwood floors. Place it under a coffee table you snagged from a thrift store, and you’re halfway there. Personalise your couch and sitting area by heading online to create custom throw pillows. They’re unique and adorable, especially for your living room. Add a handcrafted blanket, and you’re all set.


Plant A Vegetable Garden

Head out back and start that garden you always dreamed of having. It’s a practical project that brings great rewards. Make it small and manageable and plant your favourite vegetables. Enjoy tending to it and eating the delicious produce that comes right from your backyard.

Paint the Bathroom

Schedule a weekend, grab a paintbrush and head to your bathroom. Select a new, trendy color that you’ve been wanting to try. Your bathroom will feel brand new once you’re done, and what makes it even better is that you’ll have hardly spent any money, too! While it won’t be the same as a full remodel, you’ll be a step closer to creating your dream bathroom.

Change your Cabinet Hardware

Go to your kitchen and take a good look at your hardware. This is one element many homeowners fail to notice. Your kitchen hardware is probably old and outdated. Changing out your kitchen hardware is a simple and inexpensive project that does wonders for the look of the room. You won’t believe that such a small adjustment has that large of an impact. Research the types of styles and colours that’ll go best with your kitchen before making the change.  

Organise your Kitchen

Your kitchen is the room that gets the most traffic. People come in and out of the kitchen all the time, so it’s no wonder it’s messy. Take time to organise and declutter your kitchen. Put items where they belong and pack away what you’re not using, because it’s taking up space. Place your belongings based on how you move around and cook. It’ll feel good to have a kitchen that’s organised and easy to get around.

Don’t underestimate your abilities or what you can accomplish in a weekend. Map out your most important areas in your home that you want to improve. These are small house projects you should consider tackling.
