22 Aug Instant updates for your home
If the interior of your home has seen better days, you may well be considering redecorating. After all, it is always fun to give your home a modern touch. The problem for many is that redecorating can be costly, not to mention time-consuming – we can’t all be D.I.Y experts, you know.
That’s why today we’ve decided to bring you some quick D.I.Y fixes for your home so you can give it the instant makeover it requires without any of the usual worry.
Mirrored feature wall
Redecorating a whole room can be a bit much, especially if you’re not used to it. Instead, why not concentrate on one wall instead and create a feature wall?
Try this nifty idea from the huffingtonpost.co.uk – paint your chosen feature wall in a bright, eye popping shade and use mirrors to jazz it up. Hang varying sizes of mirrors to create an artwork effect.
Move furniture around
Sometimes all that is needed for an instantly fresh look is to move around the furniture. This works well in a bedroom.
Change the position of your bed (you may need two people for this job) and add small bedside cabinets to each side for symmetry. Myhomeideas.com suggests positioning furniture in the corner of a room to create the illusion of more space. And the best thing about this idea is that it is completely free.
Paint your kitchen cupboards
It can be expensive to completely replace kitchen cabinets, but years of cooking can leave them looking neglected. There is an easier way however to achieve a fresh new look – paint them!
A coat of high gloss paint will give tired cabinets a shiny new feel. Make a small kitchen seem larger with a coat of brilliant white gloss, while this bright shade of teal seen on freshome.com is ideal for creating a themed colour palette.
So there you have it – three easy D.I.Y fixes for your home. Which idea will you be copying?
