It would be nice to be able to remodel your home every time you get the itch for a fresh look, but for most people this is not an option. If you are like many others, you have been talking about remodeling one room in your home for 10 years, but something always gets in the way. Just because you don't have the time or budget to remodel does not mean that you are stuck looking at an environment you have fallen out of love with. There are plenty of do-it-yourself projects that are rather small, but manage to have a substantial impact. Install a Recessed Bio Fuel Wall Fireplace - You have probably seen recessed bio fuel wall fireplaces in a spa or club, or even a movie. They are sophisticated and interesting, and they look like they are reserved for the elite. Anyone can install one of these into a wall in their home. Bio fuel does not create smoke or emit toxic fumes, so no venting is required. All you have to do is fill the fuel and ignite. Chalkboard in the Kitchen - Does your kitchen table look like a note monster? You make notes to remember things that you need to do. Everyone in the house writes notes to one another, and nothing seems to end up in the trash until you put it there. Get a can of chalkboard paint, and paint one on a wall. The family can contribute to the grocery list on the chalkboard, and you can even write the recipe you are working on down on it, so you don't have to constantly check your tablet. This is a great place to write Saturday morning chore lists for the entire family, too. Reface Cupboards - New cupboards always change the look and feel of a kitchen. However, having old ones removed and new ones installed is very expensive. You can get a new look at the fraction of the price by just refacing them. Alternately, you could just paint them, as well, and you may want to consider taking off a few doors for a more open vibe. Faucets, Hardware, and Lighting - Lighting, hardware, and faucets provide the finishing touches that your home needs. Rivets and industrial lighting are in style for the kitchen. Wall-mounted faucets, water-conserving shower heads, undermount sinks, and intriguing pendants and chandeliers are all options to consider.
