DIY Home Projects to Revive Your House
Decorating can be a rewarding hobby that gives your home a refreshed feeling. There is nothing better than creating a cozy new place in your own home and doing a great job at it! Home renovations can sometimes be heavy on the pocket and take a lot of time. Not everyone can find the right person for the job and not every store has your taste of furniture and décor. This is where DIY projects come in very handy. Not only are they a lot of fun for the whole family, but they also engage the creative and crafty side of us and are environmentally friendly.
Why spend your days at home surrounded by basic white walls? Give your living room a lively feel and paint the walls in a color that will match your interior and change the atmosphere of the space. Make it a family activity or a date with your partner. Choose a color that everyone likes and don’t be afraid of getting a splash of paint here and there. Not only is it fun to do, but it saves you some money.
Wooden details in the bathroom
Plain frameless mirrors in the bathroom can be crafted to look more lavish and these little things really do make a difference in your home. Now, this can be a more serious DIY project, but it will be worth the effort. Your vanity will look more luxurious than ever! You will need a table saw or a router tool, measuring tape, a framing material in the desired width, and a painter’s caulk – important for both functional and aesthetic reasons. While you are incorporating some wood, why not add a wooden storage ladder? You can hang your towels there, or use it as a shelf for storing jars and scented candles for a warm and cozy feel.
Hang plants from the ceiling
Choose a spot in your house with the necessary light for your plants and enjoy the vigorous energy in the room. Not only does the green inspire calmness but the plants generate oxygen and add freshness to your home. You will need to screw a hook screw in a beam, and make sure that the hook is strong enough to support the weight of your plant and its container.
Replace the faucets in your kitchen
Replacing the faucets in your kitchen in order to upgrade on style and functionality is something you can do by yourself, plus it’s a great skill to learn in case of emergencies! This may not sound very crafty and creative, but the right color and material can add so much flair to your kitchen. All you need to do is shut off the water, remove the nut tips on the faucet and remove it from the sink. Next, place the new faucet on the sink, attach the nuts and connect the water lines. Make sure you use caulk here too!
Solar lights in your yard
Less is more, and small solar lights add more ambiance – be it in your yard or driveway. Place them next to your garden flowers or shrubs and enjoy the night view from your balcony. Solar lights store sunlight and convert it into an electrical current. This is both environmentally friendly and bill free! There’s also the added benefit of not having to worry about messy cables all over your yard. There are so many different kinds to choose from, whether you want to illuminate the driveway during the night or shed some light on the best parts of your house.
