Band-Aid solutions" are considered quick fixes; They might not provide an ideal or permanent solution in the way that a kitchen renovation would but theyre designed to be done faster and be easier to accomplishand easier on the wallet.nbsp;

Whether youre getting ready for company and want your home to look its best without making a huge commitment or are looking to sell your home and want it to show nicely for small-dollars, there are a few ways to go.

Peel-and-stick wallpaper

There are a number of other ways to dress up your backsplash without turning it into an expensive project.nbsp;The Sprucenbsp;has a rundown of several options including an eye-poppingnbsp;herringbone backsplashnbsp;that was created using a Sharpie oil-based paint marker and removable tile stickers.nbsp;

Floating floor

A floating floor, which is a floor that goes in over another floor, is a higher-maintenance endeavor than throwing some peel-and-stick materials up on the wall, but its still far easier to accomplish than most other flooring options. And, if you have some skill and the desire to DIY, you might be able to do it on your own, and really affordably.

The floating process was originally invented for laminate flooring, saidnbsp;Networx. In fact, a major reason why laminate floors have become so wildly popular is that theyre simple enough to install as a weekend warrior DIY project.

However, both natural hardwood and engineered wood floor planksnot to mention cork, ceramic tiles, and vinylare now also widely available in floating versions which the aspiring home handy person can easily assemble.

Peel-and-stick countertops

Heres something you may not have thought of: peel-and-stick countertops, which use a PVC vinyl base that can make your home look more updated at a fraction of the cost. While they might not be best for high-traffic areas because of their durability or lack thereof, these countertops can serve as a low-cost, temporary lipstick makeover in spaces that you either dont own, dont use often, or cant afford to rehabnbsp;just yet,nbsp;saidnbsp;HomeAdvisor.

Thisnbsp;faux countertopnbsp;from EZ FAUX DECOR looks like marble and claims to be heat and waterproof, scratch- and tear-resistant with a smooth surface that is environmentally safe, easy to remove with no sticky residue.
