Because many of us spend the majority of our time at home; now might be a wonderful time to channel some of that cabin fever into a project; that will add value to your house or infuse it with fresh vitality.

Here’s a list of DIY projects / condo renovations you can accomplish on your own; or with the help of a small helper in need of a play date.

Easy DIY Renovations You Can Try at Condo:

New faucets

Attention to precision is essential for this job; you don’t want to flood your kitchen because you forgot to turn off the water valve, but no prior plumbing knowledge is necessary. A gleaming new faucet can provide a lot of day-to-day enjoyment for very little work.

These instructions will guide you through the stages of installing a kitchen faucet (and the process is just the same for a bathroom sink).

Light switches and fixtures

Few things can alter a room’s ambiance as fast as lightning. By replacing an old fixture with a new one, or an on-off switch with a dimmer, you may create an atmosphere for every event. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on replacing a light fixture. Because switches use the same wiring as fixtures; if you can replace a fixture, you can handle a switch.

Upgraded smart technology

There are several smart home devices to select from, and some are as simple as replacing a light bulb or connecting in a gadget. Consider the following:

Smart doorbell/camera

Installing a smart doorbell/camera is comparable to swapping out a light switch. The procedure is disconnecting your old doorbell and connecting the gadget to your Wi-Fi.

Smart locks

Do you have a family member who is always misplacing their house keys? A simple option is to replace a standard door lock with a keyless entry system that can be accessed via a touchpad or smartphone app.

Smart home hub

Amazon, Google, Apple, Nest, Samsung, and more companies provide smart home hubs that allow you to communicate with compatible devices via a centralized system. The hub is generally “plug and play” and simple to set up. However, you may need to perform some preliminary troubleshooting in order to connect all of your devices.

Smart lights

Purchasing and installing light bulbs is all that is required for this condo DIY project. However, because each system has its own set of needs and controls, the upgrading must be coordinated with a smart home system.

If you already have a home automation system, be sure the lights you pick are compatible with it. If you are considering purchasing a new system, bear in mind that it must be compatible with the goods you already own.

Condo Renovation: Cabinet refinishing

Updating your kitchen does not have to entail extensive improvements. Change out the door and drawer knobs, paint your cabinets; or remove cabinet doors to create an open-shelving appearance to create a whole different design. If you have too much wall space and not enough cabinets, you may easily build open shelving from the ground up. Aside from that, homes with open shelves sell for 4.2 percent more than projected.
