If you’re no longer happy with how your home looks, you should consider revamping it. You may need to change the colors of the wall. Perhaps you also need to replace some of your home furniture. There are so many things you can do to improve your home. We’ve gathered our favorite home improvement ideas below. You can use these ideas for your 2019 home improvement project.
Update your bathroom interiors
The bathroom is one of the most important parts of your house. You spend a lot of time here when you prepare for work or when you simply want to have a quiet and relaxing time in the tub.
This coming 2019, you should consider giving more TLC to your bathroom. Think about improving the storage area. Where do you place all of your toiletries? What about your bathroom cleaners? You should have a designated space for all of your bathroom items. You can either install hanging cabinets or place a new DIY cabinet in your bathroom.
If you want to revamp you sink but you don’t have enough money to replace it, you can resort to replacing the tap. You can also try repainting the walls. Choose bright colors to make your bathroom look spacious.
You might want to add a freestanding bath or a shower enclosure if you have a large space to work with. Just make sure that you measure the area first so you can buy the right size of tub or enclosure.

Do you love cooking mouthwatering meals for your family and guests? You might want to include creating a cozier and more functional kitchen in your 2019 home improvement checklist.
You can remodel the whole area and add modular cabinets and kitchen countertops. If you want to have a more colorful wall in the sink area, try installing kitchen backsplash. Choose design and colors that compliment the walls and the cabinets. If always host parties in your home, you might want to switch to commercial kitchen appliances so you can prepare food easier. You should also think about installing hanging cabinets for your small kitchen appliances and devices.
Add or revamp your dining room fixtures
You spend a great amount of time in your dining room. It’s where you dine and entertain guests. It’s also a make-shift area for your school or take-home office work. Because the dining room serves so many functions, you also need to improve too. There are simple but brilliant ways you can upgrade your dining room.
Before you start your project, pick the theme you want to use. Also, you should identify what kind of activities you want to do in the area. Check everything that needs work. By looking at these factors, you can easily determine what kind of furnishings you want to add.
For example, if your dining area is too dim, you can install a chandelier or pendant lights. Try to replace your dining table linens and decors. You can add a wooden bowl for the fruits or a nice vase for fresh flowers. If you want to be more creative, you can purposely mismatch the chairs. If the walls look dull and boring, repaint it. Select refreshing colors that compliments the furnishings.
Create a multi-purpose outdoor space

Make use of your free outdoor space. Instead of just leaving it be, you can grow a garden. Fill it with your favorite flowers, shrubs, vines or trees. Don’t forget to add outdoor lounge furnishings to your garden so you can have a nice spot where you can sit, relax and enjoy the cool breeze.
If you want to keep the bugs out, you can convert your patio into a sunroom. Add a sofa set, a small bookshelf, a colorful rug and some soft pillows or cushions so you can have a nice lounge area where you, your family or guests can stay in during the early mornings or afternoon.
If you frequently host parties, you can set up a roofed outdoor kitchen. Place your grill, kitchen stoves and other home appliances here. You also need to install a fully functional sink so you clean and prepare the ingredients in one place.
There are various ways that you can maximize your outdoor area. To determine which design option you should use, you need to think about how you intend to use the area.
Every house deserves to be spruced up every once in a while. You can do a home revamp even if you have a limited budget. You only need to have a clear outline of your plans. What are your goals? Do you have a specific theme in mind? Don’t forget to check the quality of the furnishings, decors and other items you will use. We hope the ideas above can serve as your inspiration for your future home improvement project.
