No excuses for stalling on home updates
Busy has become a way of life. People often don’t have time to complete that entire wish list of home updates. Luckily, there are several simple kitchen and bath projects that you can conquer in minimal time that deliver maximum style and functional impact. In fact, here are a few projects that can be completed in about an hour or less.
Raise the bar with a new shower rod
Bring the luxurious style of a hotel to your bath and increase shower space with a Moen Curved Shower Rod. Available in singleand double-rod designs, both offer the elegant look often seen in hotel baths while adding up to 7 1/2 inches of extra elbow room. If you’re short on time, Moen’s Tension Curved Shower Rod is a perfect choice: it can be installed in three hassle-free steps — without drilling holes — and removes easily. Finally, add decorative shower curtain rings and a new shower curtain to give your bath an instant makeover.
Style and storage makeover
Accessories, such as towel bars, hooks and shelves can be a quick and inexpensive solution. It’s easy to eliminate towels on the floor and too many products in the shower with bath accessories that come in a variety of styles and finishes.
Turn boring into something beautiful
If you wish you could have the beautiful tile back-splash seen in high-end kitchens, but aren’t up for messing with mortar, you now have an alternative. Today, there are many easy-to-install wall tiles that offer an adhesive backing or simply adhere with double-sided tape or adhesive. Plus, they are available in a variety of faux tile, stone or metal designs to transform the look of your kitchen in no time.
Say hello to new kitchen hardware
This simple project can make a dramatic difference in your home’s appearance. Look for new knobs and drawer pulls that are designed to match your existing faucets and fixtures in both style and finish. Whether you prefer modern or something with a more traditional look, there are many options available to extend your sense of design down to the details.
But don’t stop with knobs and pulls — much like the bath, towel rings and hooks are the perfect solution for managing dish towels that are often carelessly strewn about countertops. Establish a special spot for this kitchen necessity by mounting hooks, towel rings or towel bars on the side of an upper cabinet, the end of the island or in another kitchen work space.
Take an hour or two and try some of these quick and easy do-it-yourself projects. You may be surprised as to how much you can accomplish in such a short period of time!
