6 Easy DIY Home Improvement Projects to Spruce Up Your Cabin

If you’re tired of looking at the same spaces in your cabin, here are some super simple DIY projects you can do to enhance any room and make you want to linger Up North a little longer.

1. Paint the Walls

A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for any room. You can bring brightness to your kitchen or make a statement in your living room with dramatic color. This is a great weekend project that can really make a long-term difference in the feel of your cabin.

2. Update Fixtures

From outlet and light switch covers to vent covers and lighting, these simple replacements can bring new life to your spaces. Removing outdated fixtures can modernize your cabin and add an expensive feel for a low price.

3. Paint or Stain Your Cabinets

If your cabinets are still in good shape, it’s simple to give them new life with a fresh coat of paint or new stain. You’ll be amazed at what a difference this can make in your kitchen or bathroom – you’ll feel like it’s a brand new space!

4. Power Wash the Exterior

The outside of our cabin goes through a lot. From dry, hot summer days and rainy nights to the harsh wind and cold of the winter, there can be a lot of wear, tear, and build-up on your exterior. Rent a power washer or borrow one from a friend and clean your siding, garage door, deck, and driveway. It will look fresh and bright and give your cabin a newfound curb appeal.

5. Create an Accent Wall

A great way to add interest to any space and freshen it up is to add an accent wall. Paint it a different color, create a design, or use peel-and-stick wallpaper. Let your creativity flow, and you’ll find yourself wanting to spend more time in your new space.

6. Bring the Outside In

Bringing plants into any space brings life and a cozy feel. If you are new to caring for plants, start with a few that are easy to take care of, and then start adding more once you’re comfortable. A fun bonus is picking out planters and pots to put your plants in that go with your decor!
