Enhancing your Landscape
One weekend project that can give your home a great look is painting the exterior of your home. However, if you have a professional do the work, make sure that the paint they use is lead-safe. One tip that may help is to use warm and inviting colours such as taupe or medium grey.
Curb appeal is the first thing everyone notices as they approach your home. A great looking lawn adds beauty and character to a home.

One great way to earn a return on your investment is by upgrading your windows. This investment not only is energy efficient but also makes your home look great. To increase your return on investment, install dual-pane windows. Besides making your home look beautiful, it will also block out street noise and inefficient heating and air conditioning.
Build a Fire Pit
Building a fire pit is a fun and quick way to add liveliness to your backyard. One affordable way to do this is by using tree rings. This is an inexpensive practice that allows for a controlled burn and a positive air shut-off to extinguish the heat when it’s time to stop. You can also talk with a home improvement expert and find out more about what type of weekend suit you.
Upgrade or Fix the Front Door and Add a Security System
Your front door, believe it or not, says a lot about you; the colour, the shape, the design and the overall look gives your guests a bad or god first impression. Upgrading your front door can add value to your home and give you a great return on investment. It can also provide great savings when it comes to heating and cooling bills.
One tip that may help is installing a steel or fiberglass entry door. For the least amount of work, why not add a security system? Besides giving you additional security to your home, a home security system can also reduce the cost of your home insurance. The cost of adding a security system to your home varies; depending on if you do it yourself or if you have a professional do the work. You can install the system yourself or you can ask a professional to help you.
Bathroom or kitchen improvements
Bathroom improvements can be inexpensive, fun and offer a wonderful update to your bathrooms. Examples of bathroom improvements are adding a new faucet or mirror, a new vanity top or painting walls and cabinets.
Kitchen improvements often take longer than a weekend but add beauty and form to your entire home. One easy way to improve the look of your kitchen is by installing rollouts. These are enhancements to your cabinets. They keep your kitchenware out of sight and hidden away.
You can also use ceiling fans. They add comfort, look great and can be used all year. There are a variety of ceiling fans available and they can be installed on a weekend. On the other hand, energy fans make any home more energy efficient, are usually low in cost and come in a variety of styles, colours and shapes.
All things considered, there are many weekend projects that you can start in order to improve your home’s appearance. You can choose to improve an outside part of your home, or you can opt for remodelling an interior room, such as your kitchen or bathroom. The choice is all yours. The ideal move would be to do them all by yourself but you can always turn to help if needed.
