Same Home, New Year: 7 Cheap & Easy Ways To Bring Your Home Into 2017

It’s a new year and the perfect time to brighten up your home and make some changes. However, you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to do so. Bring your home into the new year on a budget with TH Remodeling & Renovation’s DIY tips and tricks.

1. Fresh Coat of Paint

Remember that guest bathroom that you don’t even want your guests using because it is so dark and dreary? Freshen it up with a new coat of paint or go back to the drawing board of find a new color scheme. A pop of color or an accent wall will bring a freshness to your room. After it’s all done, you might want to use the bathroom yourself!

2. Add A New Backsplash To Your Kitchen or Bathroom


Do you love the look of marble? Or maybe the subway tile trend really caught your eye in 2016? Make your dream kitchen or bathroom a bit dreamier with a new backsplash. Here’s a pro tip: if you find a more expensive tile you really love, use it only in a focal point, like above your sink or stove, and find a cheaper tile for the rest of your backsplash. Don’t be afraid to mix and match tiles.

3. Custom Storage

Do you ever feel there is just not enough house to your house? Yeah, we’ve all been there. An easy solution is to create storage in any unused space. Even a wall in the kitchen can become an amazing open face pantry. A few shelves can turn a blank wall at the end of your hallway into a fresh linen closet.

4. Create an At-Home Spa Experience

Make your bathroom an oasis. Try a new shower head with different settings to create a nice rain effect. Why stop there? Find a shower bench for under $200 and turn your shower into your personal sauna.

5. Go Green!


Winter can be a dreary time, so add some greenery to your home. Try an indoor herb garden so you can have fresh herbs all year round.

6. New Rugs


We all love the rug that was handed down to us when we first moved into our home, but maybe it’s time to upgrade? There’s no easier way to add new design elements to your room quite like a rug. Faux fur or shaggy rugs add elegance and texture to a room. Or try something with a punchy design to spruce up a room that’s lacking color.

7. Start Budgeting For A Bigger Home Project

Is 2017 the year you finally get those new windows you’ve been wanting? Or perhaps a new addition to your home? Some projects aren’t very DIY-able and its best to hire a professional. Start setting savings goals and collecting estimates from remodeling & renovation companies.
