Small Changes-Big Impact: How Doing Small Home Upgrades Can Make A Huge Difference

When it comes to home renovations, even some of the smallest changes can make a huge impact on the look and feel of your home. This means that doing small things like refreshing your paint choice, adding some lighting, or switching out carpet for vinyl planking can make your space feel more beautiful and functional, and have you ready to show it off. 

As a home renovation company we do a lot of big changes, sure, but getting to see the absolutely amazing transformations that take shape within budget and a shorter timeline is one of our favorite things to do. 

Let’s take a look at some.

Brighten Up Your Space

With a new paint color, some overhead lighting, and a gorgeous focal point fireplace some small changes took this living room and made it a welcoming, comfortable place for this family to entertain and spend their evenings. Notice that the couches are the same, the rug is the same, and the window stayed right where it always was. This is what we call Small Changes-Big Impact. Brightening up a room with paint, lighting, and small changes can take a room that previously felt like somewhere you might dread bringing your family and friends, to the new place everyone wants to watch a movie marathon or host a family game night.

Kitchen Update

I know what you’re thinking, is this even the same kitchen? There’s no way all of this is considered “small changes”!

It may look like tons and tons of work was done on this kitchen to get it to looks just like the homeowners wanted, and to be a more functional space, so let’s break it down. 

  • 1 wall got removed. Walls like this are often only for separation and really just require getting knocked down (the demolition is the fun part anyway)
  • New cabinets – one of the easiest ways to update your kitchen is new or painted cabinets. While these homeowners chose new cabinets, they could have easily gotten a similar look with just some white paint.
  • Island to peninsula.  It gives more working space in the kitchen and opens the space up for entertaining
  • Backsplash change out
  • New flooring


But wait those are some huge changes!

Not really, but they bring out the exact point that I am looking to make here. There was no massive re-design involved, no plumbing had to be moved, and the changes that were made, are things we do every single day in this business. Taking a kitchen and living area space and changing up floors, paint colors, cabinets, and lighting gave this space a huge upgrade and was exactly what the homeowners were looking for. Their space is more functional and looks amazing, and in their neighborhood making these changes gives them an opportunity to get some ROI (Return on Investment) should they decide to sell the home.
