Many people tend to put off home improvement projects for as long as possible due to how time-consuming they can be. Most do not want to have to commit to displacing their lives and possessions for weeks or even months on end. The good news is, however, that there are simple ways that you can upgrade your home without an enormous time investment. These jobs are often smaller, but they can really go a long way to freshening up the look of your place. Even if you are not the handiest person around, they can still be easily accomplished.

Here are a few home improvement projects you can accomplish in one weekend:

  • Caulking the bathroom: Take a look at your bathroom floors to see what shape they are in. If they look old or worn out, you can liven them up by adding a fresh amount of caulk in between the tiles. This is a great way to help make your floors appear new again!
  • Clearing out the closets: If you want to declutter your home, you should turn your attention first to any and all closets. Chances are these spaces have been filled with old and useless junk over time, taking up an unnecessary amount of space. Thoroughly cleaning out the closets is a great way to scratch that home improvement itch.
  • Painting the walls: One of the easiest ways to change the look of a room is by giving the walls a nice fresh coat of paint. All you need to do - besides the painting, of course - is move any furniture away from the walls and give the space enough time for the layer or two to properly dry.
