The coronavirus outbreak has forced many people to spend more time than ever indoors. While being under lockdown, we may tire of staring at the same interior, furnishings, and design. You might look around one day and realize that your space has lost the luster it once had. However, home makeovers are almost always extremely pricey, unless we are talking about DIY projects.
This way, you will be killing two birds with one stone – transforming your space into exactly what you want, while on a frugal budget. DIY projects can also help in giving your place the change it needs while filling your free time with an enjoyable project. Here are some projects that will transform your space.
Add a Touch of Color
Repainting your walls is the easiest renovation project that can entirely change how your space looks. You don’t have to repaint the whole house nor fixate on one color. Don’t limit yourself by thinking you have to paint all walls in the same color. You can choose your favorite corner and paint an accent wall in a bold color to highlight that area. If you want to take it to the next level, you can make hand-painted wallpaper. This might sound arduous, but this project doesn’t need a lot of money or time. All you need is a template for the pattern you want. You can do this by cutting two pieces of wood at a certain angle to add some stripes in different hues to your wall. After you have finished penciling your design, choose a thin brush with the color of your choice, and start painting.
Add A Fireplace
Winter is almost here. What’s better than adding a fireplace to your living room or backyard for family nights? Adding a fireplace to your space will not only bring your home décor together by adding a central piece to your space, but it also makes for the perfect movie night with some popcorn and s’mores. This is a bigger DIY project that might need some financial planning. Home renovation experts from costshed recommend setting a budget before tackling this type of project. Putting a detailed plan helps in limiting confusion and increasing efficiency with the fireplace you will install.
Coffee Station for Caffeine Addicts
If you are a coffee lover and a mug collector, then you probably have many mismatched cups in your cabinet. Creating a coffee bar is not only an easy DIY project, but it’s also the perfect fix for showing off your mugs collection and decluttering your kitchen from all coffee gear and products. Start by picking the perfect spot, let it be in your kitchen, living room, or home office. After that, you need to come up with a suitable design that will complement your space. Don’t forget to add some hooks on top of the bar to organize your mugs. Lastly, add different blends, coffee machines, sugar and cream, and maybe a couple of chairs to create a functional coffee corner.
Build Yourself a Bookcase
A bookcase where you can store all your books, CDs, Vinyl records, or movies is a great DIY project for creating more storage for yourself and decluttering your space. All you need for this DIY project is a few wooden shelves and some tools for securing the shelves.
Before you start organizing books and movies, it’s vital to make sure that the shelves are secured in a good way as books and movies can get heavy. After setting up the bookcase, you have the option to pick your brush and paint it in a bold hue to make it stand out, or any color of your choice to go well with your design and color palette.
Redo Your Bathroom Floors
Chances are that the original color of your bathroom tiles has faded, and the floor is worn-out. Even if the floor is looking a bit rougher, you still do not have to start ripping all tiles out. Instead of redoing the whole floor from scratch, you can give it a bold new look. All you need for this project is floor paint and a graphic stencil. You can make use of this project to add a wow factor to your bathroom by picking a unique geometric pattern in a bold color.

Some simple changes have the power to change the whole aesthetic and look of your house. One thing that might hinder many people from revamping their space is money. However, there is an abundance of DIY projects that don’t require a lot of time nor money. You can make use of some free time and start giving your space a makeover that you would be happy with.
