Is your home looking a bit too drab for your tastes but can’t afford to hire a professional for remodelling? There are plenty of things you can DIY to improve the looks and functionality of your home. And most of these DIY things don’t cost much either. Here are some such suggestions you can consider:
Repaint the Front Door
If you don’t want to risk repainting a room as an amateur, you can always try repainting the front door. It’s easy enough and the results can be remarkable. Repaint your front door with a bright colour other than black or brown. It will definitely make your home stand out in a row. The front door is what guests first recognise when coming to your home. If it’s bright and beautiful, your entire home will look gorgeous. Repainting the front door is relatively cheap because you only require a little paint. It’s also not very time-consuming.
Install Blinds on Windows
Get rid of the old, boring curtains, and install shutters to give your living room or the study brand new looks. You can easily enough buy blinds online, which will arrive ready-to-install at home. Shutters are very easy to install if you follow the instructions. Later, they will be easy to maintain as well. They also come in a variety of different styles (very different from what you commonly see in offices), so you can give your home a charming look and improve convenience at the same time.
Paint Linoleum Floors
Have linoleum floors in your home? Then try painting the material to make it look as if you have installed new flooring. You can choose any crazy colour you want depending on the room. How about bright purple for the bedroom or golden yellow for the laundry room? Choose a paint that will be safe on the material and also possibly a paint you can also remove later if needed.
Paste Wallpaper on Kitchen Cupboards
Improve how your kitchen looks tenfold overnight by pasting wallpaper on the kitchen cupboards and cabinets. Choose a groovy pattern that will make your kitchen look lively and bright. Wallpapered kitchen cupboards are far less gaudy than wallpapered walls.
Install Ceiling Shelves in the Bedroom or the Laundry Room
Increase storage space instantly by installing ceiling shelves that you can buy at a department store. These shelves are installed close to the ceiling, so you can keep some stuff stored and out of the way, but also always accessible.
Create Stained Glass Windows
You don’t have to be a glass-painting artist to do this. You can buy stained glass adhesive film online or at a home improvement store. Then all you have to do is carefully paste them onto your window panels. You may have to clean the windows beforehand and remove any dust or debris. It won’t take longer than a day to do. Afterwards, you will have gorgeous stained glass windows you can proudly show off to your friends and relatives.
Before you try any of the above on your own, do some research. Read online blog posts or watch tutorials on how to properly conduct a DIY project. For example, before you start painting at home, learn more about how to properly paint walls or wood so you can avoid a major mistake. Once you do your research, you can try a suggestion and make your home look much nicer with little effort.
