Making smart changes to your home can be done in the space of an hour! You don’t need to plan weeks of significant renovations to get better use of your space, create a more stylish environment, or have an energy-efficient property. Continually maintaining your building with little jobs and keeping an eye out for problems before they develop is the most cost- and time-effective approach to managing your home.

If you’re not sure where to start, here are the outlines of 5 quick fix home improvement projects to give you some inspiration.

 

Introduce A Feature Wall

If you feel like your living room, kitchen or bedroom is looking a little drab, consider introducing a feature wall. Adding a burst of colour with a mural or a bright block colour on one of your walls is quicker than redecorating an entire room, but it livens up the atmosphere well. 

Should you choose to hire a team for your painting and decorating, you’ll find requesting a feature wall much cheaper than painting or wallpapering for all four. Loud prints or bright colours can also be overwhelming if they surround you, whereas a feature wall is more understated and tasteful.

 

Switch Out Your Light Bulbs

Switching from standard bulbs to LED will save you money on electricity bills in the long run. On average, LED bulbs consume 80% less energy than incandescent light bulbs. They consume much less electricity when lighting your property, and they’re safer since they don’t get as hot.

Installing an LED bulb is the same as switching out your incandescent bulb, but you’ll have to replace them much less often. LED bulbs can be purchased online with ease, so you don’t even need to leave the comfort of your home to make the change. Why wouldn’t you invest in making your property as energy efficient as possible?

 

Have A Deep Clean

A great way to rejuvenate your property is to refresh what’s already there! Effective deep cleaning will help make your space look brand new. Try to identify areas in your home that get overlooked during a routine clean, and target those. 

Don’t be afraid to move furniture to properly sweep behind it, make sure to polish and clean your mirrors, and make a conscious effort to scrub away the dirt in the corners of every room. While you haven’t rearranged anything or introduced a new colour, the atmosphere of your home will feel much more inviting.

 

Style New Furniture

A new sofa, new chairs for your dining suite or a different coffee table in your living room can completely change the look of your space. There isn’t a quicker way to switch up the decor of your home than bringing new pieces in. 

If you’ve got a little more time on your hands, the same effect can be achieved with a bit of DIY. You could give your kitchen cabinets a makeover with your favourite colour of paint and transform the palette of your house. No more worrying about buying matching shades of wood for your furniture, because you can unify all your pieces with the same brand and shade of paint!

 

Fix Cracks Or Holes In Your Plaster

Cracks and holes in the plaster of your property can be an indication of structural problems. Still, if you’re confident that they’re only minor imperfections, then you can go about correcting them quickly. Plastering to fix cracks on the surface of your walls is a quick way to refresh the appearance of your home. 

Smooth walls are an attractive feature for any style of home, and they’re an excellent basis for a new lick of paint. This is a quick fix that’s always worth making, even if you require the help of a specialist.
