Are you looking for some quick and DIY tasks to do around the house that won't break the bank?
Decorating tips don’t have to be time-consuming and expensive. We've put together a few DIY ideas you can get done over the weekend!
Declutter your kitchen cupboards
There really is nothing more satisfying than cleaning out your kitchen cupboards, throwing out those tins that been shoved to the back that are now out of date, and finding food you forgot you even bought! Invest in some pretty mason jars and you can even turn ordinary foodstuffs into a stylish feature!
Paint your front door
There's nothing more inviting than a colourful front door, so get to work and surprise your neighbours and guests. Perhaps you want to keep it simple with a neutral shade or you could experiment with classic blues (Pantone's colour of the year 2020) or if you're feeling a little more bold go for tranquil dawn, a beautiful a neutral green shade also awarded Dulux colour of the year 2020.
Put up a wall sticker
Bring any room to life with a wall sticker, they work especially great in children's bedrooms where they add a fun touch without needing to spend so much on funky wallpaper, the best part is if you don’t like it you can peel it straight off!
Spruce up your stairs
Want to give your old wooden stairs a refresh? Try a simple lick of paint in a contrasting colour on the underside, grey and whites look great and clean-cut if you're going for a simple finish, or if you want to be bold why not experiment with greens and blues?
Another option is using decorative stair stickers- these can be applied yourself onto the front-facing side. You can go as crazy as you like with the colour or keep it simple, you could even get customisable prints!
The cost of applying stickers or giving your staircase a lick of paint is much cheaper than carpet or laminate, even if your stairs or completely fine you might want to rip out the plain carpet and go for something a little different!
Give old cupboards a lick of paint
One of the biggest updates your house needs are most probably the cupboards. Old cupboards can make your kitchen or bathroom feel dated and even appear smaller, the expensive way to deal with this issue would be to replace all the cupboards, however, you can actually update your cupboards using just a simple lick of paint.
For wooden cupboards, you can pick a varnish to suit your home or for a more modern touch try chalk paints. If you want to go for a more ‘shabby chic’ look sand your cupboards before painting them.
Not a fan of cupboard doors? Remove them! Open cabinets not only help a room appear more spacious, but you can go crazy with the mason jars and labelling! make sure to pain the insides of the cupboards a nice bright or white colour.
Retile your kitchen backsplash
Many people tend to believe that any tiling is beyond their DIY skills, but you would be surprised at how doable it actually is- even if you are doing it alone! The simple way to tile your kitchen walls yourself is with peel and stick tiling, simply begin by removing your old kitchen tiles & choose from the huge range of tiles that are available online!
