It’s either the home or wardrobe that we want to redo when the weather changes, or festivities are around the corner, or when we are just ‘bored’. The cost of home improvement is what hits our minds first. The good news is you don’t have to splurge to change the look of your home, neither do you have to consult an expert interior designer. There are limitless Do-It-Yourself ideas that can beautify your home at an affordable price.
- Contact Paper: Let’s say your counter-top in the kitchen or the bathroom have lost their luster and display stains no matter how much you clean. Replacing them is going to cost you quite a bit, not to mention you will have to hire a professional to do the work. In such situations contact papers are the best option. They come in several designs and some mimic granite designs, bricks, stone, and so on. You can pick up whichever you like from a local store and refurbish your counters. You can do the same with your staircase and tables.
- Photo Gallery: Turn one of your boring, passive walls into a photo gallery. A photo gallery wall shows off a number of photographs of your family and friends framed in different sizes and styles. You don’t necessarily need a formal photo-shoot to put up perfect photos on the gallery. Dig up old photos of your family and print in high quality. A wall with such photos spreads positive vibes across your home and refreshes the mood.
- Redo the patio or backyard: You can turn your patio or your backyard into a relaxation hub. If you have bulky lawn chairs, add a mix of bright and soft color cushions. You can also do away with them and turn your old mattress into a low seating. Plants and flowers are a must but if you are not a gardener, you should buy the artificial ones. You can take up chimes as a hobby project. Make chimes out of colorful beads that will shine your heaven with colors as the sun rays fall in.
- Refurbish Your Furniture: Move around your coffee table, chairs, dining table, and couch to give your home a renewed look. In addition, you can replace your couch cushions or just change the fabric. Dining table and chairs are often the most damaged furniture, especially if you have kids. Try changing the fabric of your dining chairs or dyeing the existing ones in different colors to renew the look of your dining area.
- Rugs: If you are not quite excited about creating home decorative items, the most easiest and economical option to give your home a facelift is to try new rugs. Rugs area available in several sizes and can cover the entire living room area or just a portion you want to highlight. If your carpets are old and your pocket is in mood to spend on it, buy a big rug that can cover it up and improve the ambience.
