Home renovation doesn’t necessarily need to put you in debt or ransack your savings. With some sweat equity, a DIY approach, and a creative spirit, you can shake up the appearance of your home. Furthermore, the winter holidays are arriving soon, so you will have enough time to execute this project.
However, one thing to take notice of is the style of the space; it can have a direct impact on the mood of the people living there. Try these DIY ideas as it will not only take your home aesthetics to another level but also imbibe a fresh look, adding a sense of joy within yourself.
• Spruce up your walls
Bare walls go through a lot – from scratches to fading wallpaper to an outdated color. However, a little cleaning and a few containers of fresh paints can give a complete makeover to the suffering walls. While picking the color palettes, it is advisable to look for cooler ones instead of dark shades. Cooler hues will lessen the warmth, while hotter ones will absorb heat produced during late spring-times.
• Give your ceiling a flat crown
Surprisingly, installing crown molding is a little work task at a reasonable cost that can add value to your home. All you need to do is purchase the molding materials from the store, cut it as per the size of your ceiling, and hang it with a nail gun. Some of the strips may even come painted in different colors. So, you merely require the right tools, little technical skills, and a bucket of motivation (of course!).
• Mirrors give stylish effects
The idea is simple, yet applying the same will bring spectacular style to your home. Add a mirror to every room; it will let the light swing everywhere in the room, making the space brighter. Have you ever given a thought to the fact that you look beautiful in the shop’s trial room but not that much in your home? It’s all due to the magic of the mirror. So, add the same in every room on the wall perpendicularly to the windows to enhance the beauty.
• Show some love to windows
The cheap and dull curtains might be taking out the beautiful look of your home. So, pull them down and look for some better and convenient option. Consider replacing them with wooden blinds, plantation shutters, or beautiful looking drapes. If you’re living in hot areas, then we would recommend you to give the green light to black-out blinds to get benefits.
• Carve your walls with memories
For most of our lives, we store our lovely moments in our smartphones or laptop. Make them a part of your daily life by placing them on walls. If you love rich wall décor, especially involving pictures, then DIY; it doesn’t need to be expensive, not even time-consuming. Creating a Polaroid gallery wall is a traditional yet beautiful way to decorate your home. You just need to pick some memorable pictures, get their prints, and add them to a wall.
• Give organic life to vases
What do all the happiest-homes have in general? Green plants and lots of them. It’s vibe showers positivity to an extreme level, intensifying your energy for whatever work you do. Once you return home after a stressful day in the office, they’ll act as a stress-buster to your mind. Therefore, take some empty jars and wine bottles, paint them white, and add real flowers to it to refresh your day.
• Add colors to your cushions
Color can affect your subconscious mind, and eventually, your emotional response in that space. If you’re unsure as to what color cushion you should choose for your home, then opt for the smart tool – go colorful. Get pillows with different textures, patterns, and colors. For a luxurious look, choose one with velvet, fur, or embroidery texture.
• Unleash your creativity
How is it possible if we’re talking about DIY ideas and aren’t unleashing creativity? Well, here you go. Take some void alcohol bottles to make homemade lamps. Also, regardless of the size of your home, use the unused cardboards to create a storage box. Open your creative senses and decorate it with gift wrappers or colorful papers.
