Got some spare time this weekend? Good! Update an area in your home in less than 24 hours.
CHANGE YOUR DOOR AND CABINET KNOBS
Replace plain old knobs and handles with fun, quirky ones in unusual shapes or bright colours and patterns. You also don’t have to spend a ton of money on new handles and cabinet knobs – scour your local flea market for unique, inexpensive finds. If you don’t have that much time, give
your old handles a fresh coat of paint in a contrasting colour.
CREATE A GALLERY WALL
Have a blank wall in your home that you are not sure what to do with? Consider creating a gallery wall of framed prints, your fave holiday snaps or some treasured pictures of family and friends. You can either opt for a random assortment of frames in different shapes and sizes, or the same frames for a more polished look.
A FRESH COAT
A fresh coat of paint can give new life to some old chairs and tables and uninspiring walls. If you have a steady hand or a stencil, give creative wall painting a try. Touch up banged-up baseboards, door and window trims, and wall marks that won’t wash away. Paint can be expensive, so any leftover paint lying unused in your garage can come in handy.
ADD SOME GREENERY
One of the easiest things you can do to freshen up your home is add flowers, plants, branches and even leaves from your garden. Greenery is inexpensive and looks great, plus it adds texture and a natural element to any space.
UPCYCLE YOUR FURNITURE
You don’t need to buy new furniture to update your home. A better option for your bank
balance is to up cycle items such as couches, armchairs and even your bed. You can have furniture reupholstered or, a quicker fix, cover them with a textured or patterned throw.
THINK ABOUT WALLPAPER
Wallpaper is a great decorating tool that completely transforms a room or space. It is the perfect option for creating a statement wall or for updating the interior of a cupboard or walk-in closet. There are so many patterns and colours to choose from – you are guaranteed to find the perfect match for your home.
