Trending on Remodelista: 5 Design Ideas for a Mini-Remodel

April 27, 2018

No need undertake a gut renovation to refresh your home. From small-scale remodel projects (such as adding a screened porch or installing crown molding) to micro-upgrades as simple as adding a colorful rag rug in the kitchen, the Remodelista editors this week rounded up their favorite ways to infuse instant style.

Screened Porch

“Think how often you’ll wrestle with your doorknobs in the course of a lifetime and you’ll realize it doesn’t make sense to scrimp on this stalwart of the home,” writes Francesca. See her simple doorknob picks in this week’s 10 Easy Pieces post.

“Whether direct from the garden or in the form of pretty floral prints, fresh flowers are a great way to introduce a bit of nature’s beauty to the home. A simple throw pillow on the sofa or a tablecloth are enough to conjure a seasonal feel,” writes Justine. See more in Summer Refresh: 11 Seasonal Updates for the Home.
