Your home should feel just like that– home! Design is a matter of taste, but just about everyone wants their home to be stylish, up to date, and a reflection of their personality. It can sometimes take quite the vision to see past all of the outdates, but with a little bit of creativity and elbow grease, you can completely transform your home even on a little budget.
A lot of this might require a few DIY projects, but at least you can have some pride in doing it yourself! The key is to do your research and don’t rush. Here are a few remodeling ideas and projects that will hopefully get you inspired to transform you home into your own little piece of heaven!
1. Faux Thick Baseboard
Molding and trim go a long way in making your home look and feel more custom and expensive, but that’s just the thing, it’s expensive! To get the look without the added cost, beef up your baseboards by adding a slim piece of trim a few inches above your baseboards, and then paint in between. Brilliant!

2. Framed Mirrors on Flat Doors
Flat panel doors are about as basic as they get, and can really make your home look outdated and boring. Adding framed mirrors to bathroom or closet doors not only serves a purpose, but looks much nicer and gives the illusion of a larger room. Just be sure to paint the trim of the mirror the same color as the door if you want it to look built-in (you could even caulk the edges before you paint to make it seamless). Liquid Nails Mirror Adhesive is the best way I’ve found to keep them flush and securely hung on the door.
3. Revamp Your Existing Mirrors
You may have seen or even already applied the idea of adding trim to one of your existing bathroom mirrors (it makes such a difference!), but I’m also in love with the idea of adding a shelf either in the middle of the mirror to separate two sinks, or off to the side for extra storage space. It can completely transform a lifeless bathroom! Go check out more details about this project here.
