With spring on its way and temperatures beginning to rise, many homeowners are ready to turn towards projects to update and refresh their living space. Sometimes all it takes is a few key steps to make a room feel brand new. If you’re planning to sell your Muskoka property soon, small updates can have a big impact on your listing. Listed below are some quick and easy update projects to get you inspired for your next home project.

Paint your way to a new room. There’s nothing like a fresh coat of paint to liven up your space. You need not paint the entire house though. Painting an accent wall within your living room or rec-room can add a sense of drama without overwhelming. There’s also been a growing trend to paint window or door trim, crown moulding and even chair rails or kickboards. Choosing a shade to compliment the main colour is a great way to highlight these architectural details.

Replace knobs and handles. Hardware on doors, cabinets and drawers can easily be replaced and make a great alternative to replacing all the kitchen or bathroom cabinets. If knobs and handles are looking dated, a new set with a modern design can change the entire look of a room. You can add in a bit of character with new handles too, highlighting the style of your home.

Change out light fixtures. If you have old light fixtures either inside or out, replace them with something more modern, or return to a vintage style. Lighting has big impact on a room –  the latest in exterior lighting, chandeliers and sconces has seen a rise in vintage-inspired designs with all the modern conveniences, such as smart technology options, and energy saving features.

Refresh your deck. Replacing a deck is a higher ticket project which may not be needed. While it’s best to get a professional opinion on the structural aspects of your current deck, if you need not replace, you can still make it look like new. A fresh coat of stain and a weather protective seal can bring new life to your outdoor living space and enhance a valuable feature of your home.

These are just a few ideas to help you find inspiration for your next home project. For more ideas, check out this article published by This Old House.
