Sometimes your house just needs something. It’s not furniture, or even a new lick of paint…sometimes it needs a few DIY changes. There are so many options , but here are some changes that will definitely perk the whole home up.
If you want to make a bold statement, but don’t feel brave enough to paint your walls a bold colour, art could be your answer! When your walls are bare, the whole room can be made to feel a little dull and boring. All you need to do is seek out the best pieces of art that can add something to your room. If your budget is small why not add the personal touch and get creative making your own artwork! There are tons of tutorials, and even free artworks you can print! Filling your home with texture, colour and pattern doesn’t need to be expensive!

Your home needs to be loved! And that means loving it no matter the season! If you love your home on a rainy dull day, then I think your set for life! As the seasons change you can add little accents to your home for the changing weather. A throw for the living room, with a variety of candles in the colder months is a must. While fresh flowers, plants, light curtains and salads are great for the summer months!
Adding new doors to your home is a great way to make the whole space feel fresh and rejuvenated. If the doors haven’t been changed for a long time and they’re no longer in great condition, it’s definitely something worth doing. If you’re in a DIY kind of mood, you can even make your own doors and get them just how you want them. All you need is some wood, hinges and a handle. You can get the wood from timber merchants, George Hill. And then you can adapt them and paint them before adding the handles and hinges. I’ll always pick a lovely wooden door over the plastic ones. I find them to be so much nicer, plus you can spruce them up with paint easily too! I’d love some French doors. Always check eBay for exterior or interior doors! You can grab some right bargains!
Next we have the flooring. Which can be super expensive to change. So if you have hard wood flooring why not consider painting it?
There are tons of tutorials online and some of them look amazing! Or be unique and paint a rug on your hardwood!
Or have a look online for rugs that can easily cover up flooring nicely and see what you can find. If your budget conscious,DIY your own rug like this one below.
There are few things that are worse than a home that is too dark. It can ruin the whole home, so you should find new ways to add light to your home if it’s a little too dark. You should think about adding skylights on the top floor to let more natural light in the home. These can make a real impact too! Make sure you get a professional for this.
Making changes like this gives your home a facelift, without having to spend ages redecorating and picking new furniture! And most of them can be done nicely on a budget too!
