Whether your house is big or small, classic or modern, it should still be overhauled regularly for the sake of your comfort. I’ll present to you 10 easy home improvement ideas that I hope can give you little improvement, activities, and inspirations to work on this weekend. As usual, this list is researched by Bithomeimprovement.
Accentuate your bedroom door with wallpapers.
One of the best and most convenient ways to give your home a face-lift is by repainting, the wall or replacing the wallpaper. You can go with wallpaper rather than paint if you want to add more textures and patterns to your home especially your bedroom since a vast array of wallpapers are available now. But if you think that covering the entire walls in your bedroom is arduous and takes up a lot of your valuable time, you can try using the wallpaper to give an accent to your bedroom or closet door. You only need to cut the wallpaper to size and attach it to the door, drawers, or the spots that you want to accentuate.
Organize your closet periodically
Winter is coming. Now, it is time to reorganize your closet, so it will have more space for your winter stuff. Reorganizing your closet is an easy way to overhaul your bedroom. It may seem trivial, but you will find it useful if you do it regularly. By doing this, you won’t find a disaster area in your closet anymore. You can begin with organizing your closet based on the upcoming season. If winter is coming, you can pack your summer clothes and bedding, and store them in some clear plastic containers. Then bring your scarves, gloves, and long coats in from storage, so you can grab them in no time when you need them.
Change your bedding decor.
Another easy way to add a new look to your bedroom is by changing the bedding. Beddings come in various materials, textures, colors, and patterns, which make them your go-to, easy, and cheap bedroom improvement idea. When changing the bedding, pay attention to your bedroom décor so it can bring harmony to your bedroom. You can always go with the color of your choice according to your mood and brush over the interior design. Besides the design and colors, you will also need to pay attention to what the bedding is made of for your ultimate comfort. Cotton, especially Egyptian cotton, is well-known for their comfort and durability. Flannels, on the other hand, can trap body heat, which makes them a perfect choice for cold winter nights.
Add more vivid, contrasting colors.
An all-white bedroom can make your bedroom look larger. However, it can look too stark and hygienic somehow, which makes you feel bored easily. Don’t be afraid of doing some experiments with colors if you think your bedroom is getting dull. The best way to incorporate pops of colors into your bedroom without being overwhelming is by painting the lower half of the wall. You can go with yellow, orange, blue, or any vivacious colors you like. It won’t ruin your sleep and it can refresh your bedroom look.
Swap out bathroom tiles or clean the grout.
Spending a few minutes in the same bathroom for over a year can be stressful since you see the same tiles, vanity, and walls every day. It’s boring, isn’t it? Give your bathroom a new look by repairing the broken tiles or – even better – replacing them with the new ones. But if you think it is time-consuming and requires more money, you can begin by cleaning the grout.
You may not notice that the soap residue and dirt have been trapped in the grout for a long time, making it look horrible. Cleaning the grout will make your bathroom super clean and hygienic. You only need to mix ½ cup of baking soda, ¼ cup of hydrogen peroxide,
and 1 tablespoon of dish soap to make a cleaning mixture.
Do something to your mirror frame!
The grooming area is the most visited spot in your bathroom. You dry your hair, brush your teeth, and put on makeup here. No wonder you can feel bored with the look of your vanity especially the mirror. To give your bathroom a new look in an easy way, you can try dressing up the mirror. Adding a frame to the mirror can add a nuance to your bathroom. If you are bored with the frame, just ditch it to get a modern look.
Add patterns with a stencil
Like wallpapers, stencils come in a wide array of patterns that will beef any room up, including your bathroom. Doing a wall makeover in your bathroom is worth trying as it is easy and won’t burn a hole in your wallet. The first thing you need to do is get the stencil you like. Then, paint the wall with the base coat, attach the stencil using painter’s tape, and begin to apply a couple of coats of paint onto the stencil using a small foam roller.
Try Tin-Tile Backsplash
Let’s move to the kitchen! The backsplash is an important element in your kitchen as it has saved your kitchen from stains. But, again, seeing the same backsplash for years can be boring. Therefore, you probably need to replace it. The idea is to try tin-tile backsplash. They are affordable, reflect light which makes your small kitchen look more spacious, and
you can clean them “mostly” without breaking a sweat.
Unfortunately, installing them is a different story. A guide on installing them will be later written.
Easy-to-Peel Backsplash to your kitchen
This is another good option for those who are thinking about replacing the old backsplash with the new one. An easy-to-peel backsplash is a simple way to make your kitchen look fabulous. Just like its name, you only need to peel off the tile from the backing and attach it
to the wall. It is super easy and I am positive everyone can do it well even if they are not a DIY master.
Repurpose crib into a kitchen utensil rack
Don’t store your pots and pans in your kitchen cabinets as they can take up a lot of space. Try hanging them over your kitchen island instead. You will be able to get them faster and at the same time, they can adorn your kitchen as well. You only need to find the railing of a crib, suspend it using chains on both sides, and add some S hooks to hold the pots and pans in place.
So, those are some brilliant home improvement ideas that you should try. Most of them I believe are easy home makeover ideas that you can work on
to look like a pro. If you made it this far, I hope you can take away at least 1 idea to redecorate your home to add a new spice in your life.
