I guess you could say I’ve been involved in-DIY Home Decor projects quite often in my life. At this very minute my husband is finishing the drywall in our living room, and will soon be painting it. While it’s great to see the finished product, the process can be very messy.
Insulate your home in order to save energy and lower your heating and cooling bills. Check the attic, as well as windows and doors. Any leaky spots should be fixed. Weather stripping can be added to doors and windows and new insulation can be added to the attic. You want to keep air that you paid to heat or cool, inside the home.
If you put new cabinets in your home, your kitchen will glow with beauty and style. New cabinets show all of your family and friends that your kitchen is a professional place for cooking and entertainment. You can find cabinets in light wood stains and dark wood stains, giving you the ability to personalize your kitchen to your specific tastes.
Many lampshades are plain and boring. Go to your local crafts store, pick up some acrylic paint and stencils, and create designs on your lampshades. Keep in mind this can be done with dye based ink pads as well. This will add a personal touch, making the room reflect your personality. This can take a boring room and make it more exciting.
Self adhesive drywall patches are a must-have DIY Home Decor. These patches come in many forms ranging from mesh drywall tape to those made of a polymer material. Press them carefully into place using an iron. Be careful not to scorch the patch or the wall surface. Paint right over the patch and you’ll never know it’s there.
Make sure to have your home inspected before starting any major renovations. Checking for roofing issues, termites, electrical issues and plumbing beforehand can save you a lot of trouble down the road. Finding issues like these when you are halfway through a renovation process can be a nightmare on your budget.
Heated tiles are a great way to boost your home’s value. Radiant heat tiles distribute heat by using electricity and can be a welcome luxury on cold days. Fortunately, you can install them on your own by following the directions. This makes it a project you can add on whether you are hiring someone or doing it yourself. The first cold morning you step foot into your bathroom, you will be glad you have it.
Expanding your storage options could be the perfect choice for your next DIY Home Decor project. Consider adding shelving to a coat closet or building a small table with drawers to add to your kitchen. Even small projects like these will give you a place to put toys, hats, or silverware.
We have a home which is over 100 years old and updating it has been an ongoing process over the past five years. We have a new dining room, two new bathrooms and half of a new kitchen. Recently, my husband installed four new windows and put new siding on half of the house. I can’t wait for the whole thing to be done!
