You don't need to immediately do a big renovation when you want parts of your home changed. Sometimes, you just need a few weekend projects that can immediately transform a room. If you don't have time for an overhaul yet, here are a few things you can try:

1. Replace your cabinet knobs

2. Change your throw pillow cases 

Add a dash of color to your bare sofa with a change of throw pillow cases. You can also get inspiration from the Pantone colors of the year by opting for a gray-and-yellow combination!

3. Upgrade your bathroom fixtures 


This may take more know-how, so you may want to ask a trusted plumber to do it for you if you're not confident in your skills. Changing old faucets and knobs can easily give your bathroom a freshening up.

5. Repaint a wall 

We're not talking about all the walls in your home: just one that can be an accent wall! Depending on the shape and size of your room as well as the color that you pick, this can add texture and depth to your space.
