When it's time for a small change with huge impact, consider tackling some simple home remodeling ideas. You can make a big difference in your home with only basic tools and a few hours - no demolition or construction required.

Here are a few ways you can accomplish your own miniature home renovation within a weekend:

Add a new light fixture for ambience in the dining room

A change in lighting can update the entire aesthetic of a room. If your dining room has you feeling stuck, consider swapping out the existing ceiling lights with a chic, contemporary pendant light. Add a basket lamp shade for a trendy, boho vibe, or go for a bold geometric design.

Give your kitchen cabinets character

A fresh backsplash can help refresh a kitchen and give it an eye-catching design. Apply the same concept to the inside of your kitchen cabinets by emptying them out and adding a new coat of paint. Whether you choose to refresh the cabinet interior with bright white or with a more dramatic hue, you'll make the entire kitchen seem brand new.

Update your windows & window treatments

A new textile, new shades and combinations of both can beautify a space with little effort. However, some window coverings can be costly and difficult to remove without professional help. Instead, you can refresh your windows with self-securing solutions to cover up existing window frames.

Utilize walls for storage & opened floor space

Many home renovation ideas are inspired by a need for more usable space. Rather than knock down a wall, try adding floating shelves for storage and display usage. With a ladder and some basic tools, you can increase the square footage of any room by making your storage vertical.

These are only a few home remodeling ideas you can accomplish for maximum impact and minimal effort. Whether you want to make a small space feel bigger or increase your home's property value, these ideas are a perfect way to start.
