Most of the time you don’t have a huge budget or a long gap in your schedule to oversee a significant renovation project. A weekend might be just the amount of time you need to make some small yet significant changes in your home. Two days might not seem like enough to many people, but if you plan this time in advance, you’ll be surprised at what you can achieve. Making small modifications around the home also doesn’t have to break the bank, and you could still have a cleaner, fresher looking home in just two short days. Check out some easy ways to improve your home in a weekend.
Sort your storage
Most households require storage of some kind, and if you have children, this will be more prevalent in your home. Often storage can become a dumping ground for everything that doesn’t have a place in the house. Firstly sorting through your current boxes, cupboards and drawers will help you clear out anything that is no longer needed. Next up, look at those areas that desperately need some storage or a general tidy such as your entrance way. If shoes and boots are left clogging up the hallway, why not incorporate some storage into any sideboard or cabinets you already have. Just updating with some simple baskets could get rid of the mess all over the floor in an instant.
Paint the staircase
The staircase often gets forgotten about when it comes to renovation work. This focal point in your home could actually be a prominent feature in your interior decor. Just updating it with a lick of paint in a unique color will make this area stand out amongst your interior décor. If you have a wooden staircase, why not also add a central runner to give it some texture and interest.
Radiators can often be an interior designer’s worst nightmare, as they appear uninteresting and obstructive. They are of course vital for keeping your home warm. However, there is a way to make them more appealing and fit them into your themes. Choosing vertical radiators is a great way to add an element of design to this space while still keeping that much-needed heat source.

Hang some mirrors
To improve your home, consider the light in it. If you would like to make a room appear bigger, adding a mirror to the room can make a huge difference. Placing the mirror opposite a window allows the light to bounce around the room. This will make it appear larger than it actually is. A mirror can also make a focal point in a room. There are lots of styles that will suit both contemporary and traditional settings.
Contact an interior design firm in your area to have a professional interior designer come in and give you ideas on space planning, accessorizing and color. These ideas will improve your home dramatically.
If you’ve only got a few days to spare, why not give these quick fixes a go to improve your home. They are generally easy to implement, and you won’t have to spend a fortune to make some impressive changes.
