Today I want to share with you three easy DIY home updates. These home updates are budget friendly, quick projects that will most likely take less than an hour each (depending on the size of your home). Although these are small home updates they really make a big impact in your space.
Keep in mind when updating similar items in your home the colors & look you are going for. Whether that may be silver, gold or bronze accents. For example, to streamline your style, think of the color of your faucets, light fixtures, door handles, floor vents, cabinet pulls & curtain rods. It’s always good to have a starting off point whether you have updated those items mentioned or plan to change them out eventually. We’ve chosen bronze to be our main metal color & we mix in other metals throughout our home.
When we first moved into our home, it came with old brass doorknobs. We replaced those with glass knobs, but quickly realized how terrible they were. I loved the look, but they wouldn’t stay closed & were always getting stuck or falling off. So, after living with the glass knobs for a few years we finally replaced them with oil rubbed bronze door knobs. WOW! I was really impressed with the quality of these bronze doorknobs. I love how smoothly they turn & were so easy to install. Only $13 each from Home Depot they also come in silver.
Another outdated item in our home were the floor vents. We have really long floor vents, so buying all new ones would add up fast! I decided I would spray paint them bronze to update them. As you can tell by now bronze is the main metal color in our home. Most of the vents were an ugly brown, now they look so sleek & much nicer! Having bronze floor vents really made a bigger impact than I expected. Under $7 from walmart, so cheap for a new look!
Cabinet/ Drawer Pulls
We recently painted our kitchen cabinets (checkout our kitchen refresh here) & added hardware because there was non previously. We also replaced all the hardware on the built ins around our home to match the kitchen cabinets. Again, we went with a bronze color & it has really made a difference especially on our built ins. If your kitchen cabinets have outdated hardware this is such an easy home update to make your kitchen feel like new. I used these cabinet knobs & these pulls which also come in a variety of finishes, sizes & styles. They are such great quality; I highly recommend!
Thank you so much for reading this weeks post! I hope it has inspired you to do some DIY home updates. I promise, you won’t regret it!
