The five DIY-friendly renovations below are fun and creative ways to personalize your condo and even increase its value when it comes time to sell. The best part: you can finish most of them in the span of a weekend.
- Install Wainscoting: Installing wainscoting to add a customized look to your home is a simple and relatively inexpensive upgrade. You can buy different types of wainscoting at any large hardware store. If you are new to wainscoting,avoid stairwells and just stick to a hallway or maybe dining area to make it easier on your first install. A very inexpensive and easy to install wainscoting solution is beadboard.
- Kitchen Cabinets: You can spice up your kitchen by using a few renovation tricks to make you cabinets look brand new. If your cabinets are wood, you can paint or refinish them. If you plan to paint, stain or spray paint, remove the hardware first and, if possible, take the cabinets outside to paint. After the paint dries, add new hardware to your cabinets to give them a totally new look.
- Add a Fancy Backsplash:Another kitchen (or bathroom) renovation you can do yourself and increase the beauty of your condo is a backsplash. You may want to put tiles in, but instead of expensive tiles you can use tin ceiling tiles or even wallpaper to your kitchen look new and extravagant. Here, Toronto condo renovations service recommends making sure about the position of gas, electric and water lines before you screw or nail anything on the walls.
- Add Shelves: Experts always advice adding shelves, because they hold plenty of items and keep your floor from going cluttered. You can use shelving to separate a room or add the shelves straight to the wall. Experiment with different colors or styles to reflect your personality.
- Replace Switch Covers: You can buy inexpensive frames at the dollar store or Goodwill; bring your light switch cover to make sure it fits nicely inside the frame where the glass was. Next, hot glue the light switch cover to the frame as if you were putting a picture in the frame without the glass. Then spray paint the frame and attached light switch cover to your desired color
