You don’t need to break the bank to refresh your decor! Everything is good for a cheap and simple decorative makeover, from whole rooms to specific pieces in your home. DIY allows everyone to hop on all kinds of decoration trends to achieve a nice and original decoration with little elbow grease.
Find out my 10 DIY ideas for a personalized and inexpensive space:
1- Declutter and clean your home: This is an essential step to start fresh in 2021 and you don’t have to invest any money! Organize your closets by dividing everything into five piles: keep, donate, sell, donate and throw. Continue with your cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom. Toss all expired products and items that you just don’t need. Then, before putting everything back, vacuum thoroughly for a complete revamp.
Now take the time to move your furniture and decor around to give your space another look. Keep in mind to move your furniture away from the walls to create a more intimate seating.
2- Apply a fresh coat of paint: Painting is inexpensive and can completely change a space by giving more depth and light. You can paint an accent wall in your living room, bedroom, or entrance. Choose a different color that goes with your style. Skip the beige and white and try a greenish-blue or a dark green. Another way to make a statement with paint is to paint your kitchen and bathroom cabinets, which makes a great update without a big renovation.
3- Dress up with trim and molding: This will add character and charm to your space. You can use trim and molding on walls or ceilings in any room. You can also use it on architectural features such as built-in cabinets, doors, and archways.
4- Use furniture hacks: If you have a good piece of furniture, but it looks a little tired, and you don’t want to spend money to replace it, this tip is for you. There are a lot of creative options to give life to tired furniture, like painting or using wallpaper and adhesive contact paper. You can also reupholster chairs or sofa.
5- Add wallpaper: You can use traditional wallpaper or peel and stick wallpaper, in both cases, you can use it not only to do a featured wall but also you can use it on the ceiling. You can cover half a wall, frame it, and hang it as art or use it to refresh a plain lampshade or create a headboard in your bedroom.
6- Gallery wall: You can create a gallery wall in all rooms of your home, including your bathroom. You can choose to display family photos, your art collection, a themed collection, or mix all of these! You can choose matching frames or mix and match various styles. First, you have to make a plan: start with the larger pieces and then fill with smaller ones. You have to treat all of them like one large piece and hang them at the same height as your eyes when standing - between 57 to 60 inches from the floor.
You can also use mirrors, they bring light into rooms and make spaces appear larger.
