It’s spring and it is time to clean out and makeover! Home makeovers don’t have to be expensive or lengthy projects, they should be fun for you! This is a great opportunity to experiment and do things you haven’t thought of before. Of course, DIY of any kind isn’t something we usually look forward to, it can be something we want to get out of the way as quick as we can. But, because DIY is essential there’s not really a way around it. Instead, you need to embrace it.
If you embrace it and take an interest in it, you’ll soon find ways to make the process much less stressful. You should always be looking for easy DIY and decorating tips to help you do things simply around the house. If you need to do some work you’ll want some ideas of where to start. This list should give you some good makeover ideas to help get you started.
It’s clear that painting is a powerful DIY weapon. You can make a huge difference to your home just by giving it a fresh coat of paint. Your current paint job might be faded, old-fashioned and peeling. By repainting the place, you add color and life to the home. You need to try to pick bright, vibrant colors for your paint. They’ll make the rooms seem brighter and more spacious. It’s also a good idea to come up with a fresh color scheme to help transform your rooms. Pick out your paint and try to make sure the rest of the room fits in with the new color scheme. Don’t be afraid to go a little experimental with the painting! And if you are living where you are not allowed to paint (most common for active duty families), you can still make small changes to your decor/rooms to make it look like a new space!
Another great way to give the home a makeover is to replace your furniture. Get rid of the tired and unfashionable stuff you had before and bring in new bits. Even better, build your own furniture. But if you do this you’ll need to make sure you have all the correct parts. If you’re building a chest of drawers you’ll have to ensure you have the sliding mechanisms for the drawers. To do this you’ll have to visit a company like Accuride, who manufactures them. If you’re assembling a wardrobe, you’ll need to ensure you have hinges for the doors. You could probably pick these up from a local hardware store. Just make sure you’re prepared, and you have all the bits you need.
Create More Space
One of the best home makeover tactics is to create more space. The advantage of this is that it doesn’t involve having to do anything new. There’s no building needed. You don’t need to spend money. All you’ve got to do it clear out some of the clutter, or make better use of the storage space you have. By doing this, you create a lot more space and your home will seem much larger, as a result. By doing this, you’ll create the impression that you’ve done loads to your home, when in reality you haven’t.
Change the Kitchen
And now we come to the most important room in the home, the kitchen. This is your crown jewel, and you need to make sure it’s looked after. You’ll want to give serious thought to changing your kitchen. It’s important to keep it updated and modernized. You should consider something like an open plan kitchen. This is a great way to make the room look larger and more attractive. You’ll also add value to your property as a result of this.
