The joy of fixing things yourself can be spine-tingling, but it may also feel overwhelming due to the time and effort involved. However, not all renovation attempts require tremendous planning and extensive labor, and there are several quick and easy home improvement projects you can jump on and complete within an hour or less.
1. Change Cabinet Hardware
The lift your bathroom or kitchen needs could be achieved in less than 60 minutes of work. In a short time frame, and with a screwdriver in hand, you can replace your dull-looking cabinet knobs and pulls, transforming the appearance of your cabinet before lights from planet Saturn could reach Earth.
2. Install a New Faucet
You can upgrade your faucet or install a new one in half an hour. You don’t need to be a skilled professional. Easy-to-follow setup instructions accompany most faucets, and with some simple hand tools, you can have water sloughing down your tap in minutes.
3. Replace Light Fixtures
Within jiffies, you can upgrade light fixtures in your home without much help. Set up a new ambiance by changing your chandelier and light bulbs faster than Barry Allen; remember to turn off the power before you begin. You’re not The Flash, and you’re not immune to shockwaves.
4. Installing a Dimmer Switch
Like everything with light, it could get too bright or dim depending on your mood; a dimmer switch can help you regulate the light to your preferred taste. And installing a dimmer switch is a walk in the park just by following the instructions in the manual.
5. Adding a Fresh Coat of Paint
If you want to revive a space with a new personality, painting a small room or accent can be completed in less than 60 minutes. Choose your color, grab your roller, and roll away until your space re-lives.
6. Hang a Mirror or Artwork
Mirrors and artwork are a quick way to add personality and style to your home. They are so powerful they could spike the resale value of your home if you want to list them on the market. With the right tools and an eye for aesthetics, you can achieve a professional-looking display in minutes.
7. Decluttering and Organizing Your Closet
If you declutter and organize your scattered items, your junkyard closet can take a facelift in less than an hour. You can install new shelves, add hooks and use storage bins to keep items littered in your space. As simple as decluttering and organizing, it can significantly impact your home’s appearance.
8. Upgrading Your Showerhead
Your bathing experience can take a new turn every time you upgrade your shower head, and replacing the old shaggy one doesn’t always require you to break a sweat. With a wrench and some plumber tape to unscrew and seal up, you could be bathing under a new showerhead in no time.
9. Upgrade Window Films
Are your window films bad, or do you need a new one? You can DIY in less than an hour. Window Films allow you to control the amount of natural light that gets into your space, and just by measuring and cutting to size the film for your window space, you could have an instant upgrade.
10. Installing a Programmable Thermostat
Your energy bill is hitting the roof? You can improve energy efficiency by replacing your old thermostat with a programmable one. A programmable thermostat allows you to set heating and cooling schedules, and fixing one is as easy as pie.
