It’s easy to get stressed out just hearing the word “renovation.” Welcoming red door.


You’re instantly thinking of having your home life disrupted by construction debris, cluttered rooms, and loud noises.


But you don’t have to spend a ton of money and brace yourself for months of inconvenience to upgrade your home. Here are a few projects that you can knock out in a single day, and they’ll greatly improve the look and enjoyment of your home.


Paint or replace an exterior door: If you have the tools, know the correct dimensions and specifications for a replacement door, replacing an exterior door can be a quick and easy job. That’s even more true if you’re repainting it. Preparation and a few coats of paint will only take a few hours. (Full disclosure: the color red takes at least 5 coats of paint.)


Plant some low-maintenance trees: Young evergreen trees are relatively simple to plant, and after some heavy watering in the first few weeks, they’re very easy to maintain. They’ll add some color and texture to your landscaping, instantly improving curb appeal.


New light fixtures: Whether they’re on the interior or exterior of your home, something as subtle as light textures can have a dramatic effect. Swapping out traditional fixtures for something modern or industrial can completely transform a room.


New hardware: Drawer pulls and door knobs are easy to change out, and like light fixtures, they have a major impact. You will be amazed how your kitchen or bathroom will look with new hardware.


These quick fixes can dramatically add to the enjoyment of your home or get you on the path to preparing your home to sell.
