Top Home Renovation Ideas and Inspiration for 2022!

Top Home Renovation Ideas and Inspiration for 2022!

In the early months of 2022, many people are craving a sense of regeneration; after spending 2 years locked in our homes, they are beginning to feel stagnant and stuffy rather than a cosy and safe space.

Therefore, Boylin’s Self Store has compiled a list of our top home renovation ideas to inspire you in 2022 to revitalise and freshen up your home this year!

Let’s Start with the Entry Way to Your Home – the Front Door:

  1. Start With the Front Door to Make a Lasting First Impression

The right front door can add instant kerb appeal.

A fresh coat of paint can work wonders for transforming an existing door. Not only does it revive the door, it adds a new look for the whole exterior of your home.

But if your front door has had its day, invest in a new one to make a great first impression, or install a smart new knocker or handle.

Quick & Quirky Kitchen Renovation Ideas:

  1. New Countertops

New cabinets, countertops AND fixtures can equal a five-digit kitchen renovation, which is not ideal considering many of us have struggled financially during the pandemic.

But if your cabinets are in decent shape, you can indulge in new countertops and upgrade one of the hardest working surfaces in your home.

The smaller square footage you have to cover, the lower your cost, which means you might be able to afford a more expensive material.

  1. Change the Backsplash

Swapping out a tired backsplash for one that adds a punch of pattern or colour is a great way to freshen up a kitchen and add visual interest.

With options for tile, stone, glass, ceramic, and beaded board, there are so many opportunities to find a material that’s right for your budget and style.

  1. Add a Faux Island

Stand-alone tables or cabinets can be a cost-friendly feature for an island-less kitchen. Just add rolling casters so you can move the piece at will.

If a super-low budget is your goal, start with a simple table.

If you already have a piece of furniture sitting unused you can turn it into an island today, quickly, sustainably and cheaply!

  1. Upgrade Cabinets or Cabinet Doors

Paint, wallpaper, peel-and-stick wood products – all are great options to give a new face to old cabinets.

Removing doors on some upper cabinets offers you easy-to-access open storage without having to add new shelving.

Look for ways to refresh your home that not only fit your budget but also how you use the space on a daily basis.

  1. Update Flooring

Many peel-and-stick flooring options are thin enough that you don’t have to remove existing flooring to give your room a budget-friendly upgrade underfoot.

Even if the floor must come off because you just can’t stand it any longer, a new floor can be a long-lasting project that, on its own, isn’t too expensive.

Plus, plenty of DIY options exist to help you save on labour, too.

  1. Install Dimmers

If your home has scarce overhead lighting, you might be having a hard time getting the right balance of light.

This is even more true in older homes with fewer outlets available for floor and side lamps.

In these instances, installing a dimmer switch can be your quick and easy solution: keep it bright when accomplishing tasks, but turn it down for softer ambient lighting that’s comfortable for lounging.

  1. Reupholster Your Sofa

Update a vintage sofa or sofa bed with a funky new fabric covering. Or give a sentimental furniture piece a new lease of life with neat new upholstery.

  1. Statement Curtains Can Give a Room Brand New Energy

Bold and striking curtains can really lift a room and give it brand new, vivacious energy. Similarly, demure, soft curtains can make a room feel cosy and peaceful.

Give Your Tired, old Bathroom a Facelift in 2022:

  1. Add a Medicine Cabinet

You can add both style and storage to your bathroom with a simple, budget-smart change: a new medicine cabinet.

Replace a plain wall-mount mirror to gain storage and a new look.

If you’re feeling crafty, add a cork board or chalkboard on the inside of the door for daily reminders and affirmations.

  1. Wallpaper an Accent Wall

Wallpaper has become easier to tackle, even for a beginning DIYer, which makes it a great project for a home renovation on a budget.

You can add pattern and colour with wallpaper in a flash, and it’s totally fine to limit it to one stand-out wall (and keep the budget low).

But if you’re not ready to tackle proper wallpapering quite yet, try the temporary, peel-and-stick kind. You can easily take it off if you change your decor style, so you don’t have to worry about giving a current design trend a shot.

Your Bedroom should be a Calming Space that makes You Feel Happy & Peaceful:

  1. Add a Headboard

A guaranteed way to update your bedroom is to add a headboard, whether it’s small and stately or oversize and dramatic.

To buy new, they can get quite expensive, but there’s a lot of opportunity for maximizing your style and budget with DIY headboards.

  1. Inset Display Shelves

A simple home renovation change that’s easy on the budget is to add narrow, wall-to-wall shelves. They’re inexpensive and don’t require a huge footprint to fit in a variety of bedroom sizes.
