If you don’t have the luxury of time when remodeling your home, here are some simple ways you can remodel your home in just a few days.
1. Modernize your bathroom
Your bathroom is where you start and end your day at, morning and evening shower. You freshen up and unwind after a long day and so it is really important to make it the best.
Consider repainting the walls, add a skylight in case it is too dark, shower replacement with a wider modern one with enough pressure, and incorporate glass to brighten the room.
2. Repaint your walls
It would be a good idea to repaint your exterior walls to protect them from weather elements. Repainting is also a proven way of freshening damaged sidings. For the interior walls, choose bright colors to make the house look livelier.
Do not forget to give the ceiling a new look too. Maybe white would be the best choice, as it reflects light and would make the other four walls appear beautifully sharper.
3. Invest in a good lighting
Good lighting in a room provides warmth and a cozy feel. That is why you should consider getting elegant chandeliers for your ceiling and replace your fluorescent bulb with modern LED bulbs. You can also place candles in stylish candle holders in the dark corner in your living room both for their scents and for their décor properties.
4. Manage your cords and cables
Electronics cables can make a room appear disorganized and untidy when they are all over the floor. They are very stylish, with different shapes and colors, cable holders to hold all your cables together which are not too costly.
5. Bring in indoor house plants
Plants are naturally beautiful- their natural green color signifies life and inspiration in the house. They make a room cozy and purify the air within. There are some indoor plants with a really good smell for example spearmint, lemon balm, night-blooming jasmine, etc.

6. Work on your front door
Your front door determines in a big way the very first impression visitors and people from the street get about your house. If the door is not in an awful condition, it would be okay to just repaint the frames and get new door locks. If it is beyond repair, getting a new one would still be worth it.
7. Rethink your furniture
Move up the sofas and the tables from their usual positions. Rearrange to give every room a new look and a different one from what you are used to. Another way of reimagining your furniture would be to get cushions of different sizes, shapes, and colors to match with the rest of the interior.

While there, clean all the dirt in the gutters, if need be, repaint your roof to give it a new look.
9. Improve your outdoor
