Remodeling doesn’t have to eat up your entire summer and leave you without the use of your kitchen or bathroom for weeks on end. Try these quick summer remodeling projects that you can complete in a weekend.

New Appliances

Even just one new appliance can breathe new life into your kitchen. Besides that, energy-efficiency gets better with each passing year so you may find an upgrade can use up to 40% less energy depending on how old your current model is.

Entryway Update

Repaint you door. Add a porch swing. Bring in some greenery. Your front door can seriously add some curb appeal to your home. It won’t even take up the whole weekend to give it a makeover.

Backsplash Install

A new backsplash is a quick project that can transform your kitchen or bathroom. Whether you want classic white subway tile or a flashy metallic penny round, there’s something that will jazz up your space.

Fixture Remix

You know the power that the right accessory has on an outfit. Harness the same power in your home with a fixture update. A new lighting fixture over the dining table or the kitchen island makes the space feel like new. Same goes for sink faucets and other hardware like cabinet pulls.

Patio Addition

Wish you had a great outdoor entertaining space but think you’ll have to wait until next year to pull it off? Nope. You can add a patio in one weekend with a little sand, flagstone or pavers, potted plants and new patio furniture. Learn how here.

Accent & Trim Bling

Adding accents or trims, whether they are permanent or temporary, is a great way to introduce freshness into your home. Put in some crown molding or a tile chair rail and bring your design up a level.

Wall Love

There’s so much attention on walls right now. The days of plain, white walls are gone. Consider a lick of paint or a bit of wallpaper. Or if you’re feeling a bit more energetic, create a feature wall with an eye-catching wall tile.

Ceiling of Stars

There are plenty of spaces in your home that you completely overlook. Change that by giving your ceiling some love. Wallpaper on the ceiling or a rich paint can help set the mood in your design even though it’s not the central feature of the room.

Efficient Windows

Replacing your windows is probably something you can’t DIY, but it will only take a weekend and it can make a huge impact on your energy consumption. It will stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter while using less energy.
