Spring is in full bloom, and what better way to celebrate than by giving your home a quick and easy upgrade? There are plenty of simple home improvement projects you can tackle this April to breathe new life into your living space. Whether you're a seasoned DIYer or a novice looking to dip your toes into the world of home renovation, here are some easy home upgrades to consider this month.
You don’t have to spend a fortune creating a DIY wardrobe organiser, there are plenty of inexpensive drawer/wire organisers from the likes of Amazon that will help declutter your wardrobe. Begin by measuring your wardrobe dimensions, this will help you determine what size organisers you’ll need to purchase. You could also create sections for each of your clothing pieces i.e., tops, t-shirts, dresses, skirts, trousers, underwear, and shoes. This will make each morning a breeze when putting together an outfit.
Maximise the utility of unused corners with shelving
We all have corners in our room that could be better utilised. One easy DIY solution: install some simple floating shelves that give you more storage space and are a timeless way to add style to a room. This will require a bit of woodwork, nails, and a screwdriver - but it’s well worth the effort when considering the finished look. You can turn that unused space into a statement corner.
One of the quickest and most impactful ways to give your home a fresh look is by painting an accent wall. Choose a bold colour that complements your existing décor and gives the room a pop of personality. Not only is this a fun DIY project, but it's also an affordable way to update your space.
Make your cords disappear
There is nothing more irritating or aesthetically unappealing than having messy cords ruin your beautiful interior design. If you’re having these issues and don’t know where to start, then keep on reading. Hook cords to the back of your furniture, whether it’s behind your nightstand, or behind your work desk, you can anchor them to the silhouette of the nearest furniture. You can purchase some inexpensive command cord clips online, or a cable concealer kit, also known as a cable raceway. It’s a smooth, flat PVC cover that attaches directly to the wall with adhesive, allowing you avoid drilling any holes and is a perfect way to hide cords for a mounted tv.
A gallery wall is an easy way to add personality and style to your living room or bedroom. Choose a variety of frames and artwork that reflect your personal taste and arrange them in a visually appealing manner.
Restore old furniture
Renewing your old furniture can be a great option if you are sick of seeing the same thing, but don’t want to splurge the cost of replacements. There are a ton of creative options to choose from! For example, breathe new life into your old furniture by giving it a fresh new colour of paint, reupholstering, and using adhesive contact paper to add shapes and designs.
Installing a new backsplash can give your kitchen a fresh and updated look. You can use tiles, paint, or wallpaper to create a unique and personalized design. You can see how our homeowner @our.home.no.eleven upgraded their kitchen, go follow them on Instagram to follow their journey.
Add some greenery
Plants are an easy and affordable way to add life and colour to your home. Consider adding a few potted plants to your living room, kitchen, or bedroom for an instant pick-me-up.
Hang new curtains
New curtains can change the entire look and feel of a room. Choose a style and colour that complements your existing furniture and décor to enhance the overall ambience of the space.
