Top Spring Renovations To Spruce Up Your HomeThere is nothing better than to come home and see your house looking nice after a weekend of sprucing it up. From some simple landscaping to updating your kitchen, small renovations can take a minimal amount of time, but make a big impact on your home. Here a few simple do it yourself home renovations that can help make your house look and feel more like a home without breaking your bank.  

Replace Your Door

One of the most dramatic and quickest ways that you can spruce up your home for spring is to replace your front door. The opening to your home is an expression of its own, one that is often overlooked. From modest to bright colors, your door is an expression of yourself and your family. Depending on what kind of door you wish to buy, they can be cheap or get rather expensive, it all depends on your budget and how much work you’re willing to do. One of the cheapest ways would be to go to your nearest discount store to buy a used door, sand it down and make any necessary renovations to it, and then put it up!


Adding a little attractiveness to your home can not only add to the attractiveness of your home, but it can also improve the value of your home as well. Having beautiful landscaping can make an owner proud to own their home, therefore making them more likely to take care of it once it looks great. Adding gardens of shrubs and flowers that match or compliment the color or your home can make it look beautiful, and the envy of the neighborhood. Adding these shrubs and flowers can also add structure to your front or backyards and can also determine your property line if you don’t already have a fence.

Build a Built-In

Although this can be a little trickier especially when having to find the wiring and plumbing before making major changes, building a built-in bookshelf or shelving unit can look great in your home. It allows for more space to be used in rooms and the walls are already there, why not used them and build something in them? By using your existing wall space to house your books, games, toys, and trinkets, you can clear up your space and make it look more open.

Update Your Kitchen 

The best way to update your kitchen is to remodel it, but many people don’t have the money or time to do so. The alternative to this is to do small renovations to help spruce it up until there is a time when you can replace it all or replace one big thing at a time. Replacing drawer knobs and faucets are a good way to update the look and feel of your kitchen. You can also tile the backsplash behind your stove, which doesn’t require much previous experience and there are many helpful tools online. Changing the backsplash can also give your kitchen a more modern or antique feel, depending on what you do with it and brighten up your area.
