If you’re like most people, you probably spend a lot of time at home. However, you may not always have the time or resources to complete all of the work to maintain or decorate your space. This is where these four simple home improvement DIY projects come in. These projects are all affordable and can be completed in a matter of minutes, making your home more appealing and inviting.

1. Put in Kitchen Rollouts

If you have limited cabinet space in your kitchen, this is an excellent option for you.

Kitchen rollouts are the most convenient way to bring everything hidden in the back of cabinets to your fingertips, giving you more usable storage space.

You can build the rollouts yourself or buy them at any home improvement store. The installation is straightforward, requiring only a few screws.

Just make sure you have the correct cabinet measurements before you build or buy them because you don’t want to end up with the wrong-sized rollouts that don’t fit your cabinets.

2. Refinish Countertops with Epoxy Resin

Resin is a natural compound that is obtained from evergreen trees and appears as a thick, sticky substance. Resins have been used for varnishes and glues for many surfaces throughout history.

It’s also simple to use; simply combine the two liquids in the proper ratio and thoroughly mix, and you’re ready to go.

Consider epoxy resin resurfacing if your old countertops need a facelift, but you don’t want to spend the money to replace them. Epoxy resin can withstand the rigors of a kitchen environment because it is so solid and heat-resistant when cured.

It’s food-safe, non-toxic, shiny, and easy to clean.

3. Use Wallpaper to Create an Accent Wall

If you don’t want to transform all of your walls with expensive wallpaper, the new one-accent-wall look is in, and it’s great for adding some unique flavor to your home while remaining affordable. This is also an excellent option for a room with plain walls, thin baseboards and window trim, and no built-ins. You create a character in an instant.

Make sure to fill any holes and smooth out any rough spots on your wall before you begin putting down the wallpaper. There may be rough spots in the paper. The wall surface should then be sealed with an acrylic primer. As it dries, it hardens and smooths. This allows you to slide the paper to tighten seams quickly.

Here’s a tutorial on how to install a wallpaper yourself the right way.

4. Install Wire Shelving to Create a Neater Closet

Wanting a neat and organized closet does not always have to do with the amount of space you have; wire shelving can always be used to make more room in your wardrobe.

Wire shelving systems are inexpensive, practical, and easy to install. They expand your storage capacity while also making cleaning easier. Almost everything is hung on the walls, freeing up space on the floor for vacuuming. In addition, wire shelving, unlike solid shelving, does not collect dust.

5. Change your shower head

A rain shower head can quickly transform a mundane bath into a spa-like experience. In addition, a more efficient model will reduce your water consumption. Before installing the new shower head, wrap the threads with plumber’s tape.
