Decorating a home can be quite expensive and time consuming, however, that doesn’t need to be the case. There are many creative and affordable ways to make a home look amazing which doesn’t require a lot of hard work or an interior designer. The truth is, there are many ways to upgrade a home that can be easily learned through YouTube videos or DIY books. We will cover a few of these DIY home decor ideas that just about anyone can try.
One of the core components of any home are tables. After all, tables of different sizes will be required throughout the home, whether they be in the living room, hall or bedrooms. However, these can be quite expensive to buy, especially when looking for unique pieces. Therefore, in order to avoid this extra expense, these tables are a simple DIY project and can actually be created using old window shutters that may be lying around the home. All that is needed are four shutters which can be squared off and nailed together with a glass adhered to the top. This side table is the perfect piece to rest small items or even showcase a potted plant or flowers.
When it comes to changing the look of the living room and the couch in particular, many people think that they need to spend thousands of dollars on a new couch. However, an old couch can be revived by simply painting over the wooden frame in a new color. Additionally, creative and colorful new throw cushions can be added to the couch in order to make it look more vibrant. In the event that new cushions can’t be purchased, then there are many cushion covers that can be used to quickly give old cushions a new look.
Another way to add interest and personality to a room is through the addition of paintings or wall art. Art pieces can be quite costly, however, it doesn’t have to be. Simply find a digital painting and then have it enlarged and printed. Strips of wood can be added to the top and bottom of the print as a frame and then hung on the wall. These don’t even need to be abstract digital paintings but can be any type of picture that is appealing or even a family portrait.
Pendant lights are a cool way to add more lighting to the kitchen, without having to buy expensive light fixtures. These can be made with a couple of differently sized nesting bowls, a nylon cord set, bulbs and a cutter. Simply cut a hole at the bottom of each bowl and insert the end of the cord into it. The bulb can then be screwed in and the cord can be hung on the ceiling and attached to a power source.
These are just a few DIY home decor tips to get started with. There are hundreds of other cool projects that can be implemented in any home, so do continue to research and experiment to find out what looks the best.
