Simple Home Improvement Ideas That Will Make Houseguests Instantly Jealous

The best thing about having your own place is that you can customize it any way you like. The problem with home renovations, however, is that you usually never know where to start. In many cases, you end up spending way too much time and even more money on something that doesn't look great. Thankfully, there is a solution: creativity! Just check out these simple-yet-effective ideas to totally transform your home on a budget.

1. Color-changing, heat-sensitive tiles

Heat-sensitive tiles in the shower? Yes, please. The only problem with adding these neat and envy-inducing tiles to your bathroom is that you might become so entranced by them that you don't want to get out! That said, I don't think anyone would blame you.

2. Good lighting

Adding a single chandelier to your porch can make it look super classy. But any kind of funky-looking lighting fixture will do the job just as well. Afterward, it'll be practically begging for someone to make mint juleps.

3. Glowing table

Movie nights in the living room would be way cooler by the glow of a DIY resin coffee table. Mix resin with a glow-in-the-dark powder in the color of your choice and fill in the divots on an old sanded piece of wood. Beautiful!

4. Painted floors

Don't be afraid to put some paint on your floors! Sand down and clean wood flooring to paint patterns right on the surface. You could make a statement with, say, a bright orange streak, or you could opt for popular black and white stripes.
