Spring is coming, and with a new season comes a renewed enthusiasm for sprucing up your home.
Whether it’s spring cleaning, or you want to completely change the look of your home or anything in between. There are countless ways that you can improve your home with minimal time, effort, and money.
Plus, let’s face it– with everything going on right now, we’re all spending way more time at home than we used to. So, now is the perfect time to tackle some of the projects that you’ve been putting off.
Here are 3 DIY projects that you can do yourself this weekend to add to the overall enjoyment of your home.
1. Add Storage Space
One complaint that many homeowners have is that there never seems to be enough space to store their belongings. The good news is that there are several easy-to-install, and inexpensive ways to add more storage space to your home.
An easy way to add more space without breaking the bank is to install clothing hooks on your wall. These hooks can be used for a variety of different things, from hanging your car keys to storing umbrellas, hats, sweatshirts, or jackets.
You can even install these hooks inside of your closet so that you can keep the rest of your home neat, clean, and clutter-free while adding more storage space in the appropriate area.
These hooks are easy to install, (just screw them into the wall or use removable adhesive if you don’t want to damage the walls) are very inexpensive, and come in a wide variety of different colors, styles, and finishes. This means that there is something to fit every style of home, and installing them shouldn’t take more than a few minutes.
2. Add A Pop Of Color And Texture To Your Walls
Tired of the same 4 boring walls staring back at you every day? Well, change it up!
Adding a pop of color to your home is as easy as installing some trendy wallpaper. There are tons of different varieties, textures, and colors, and installing it is super easy.
Whether you want to apply it to one wall to make a statement, or use it across your entire living room, kitchen, or bedroom, wallpaper can very quickly give your home an entirely different look.
While there is some prep work involved, and installation can vary based on the number of walls you want to cover, using wallpaper to change up the appearance of your home is still a relatively easy and fast way to make that happen.
Even installing wallpaper on one wall, like in the photo above, can create a dramatic change in the overall appearance of your home.
With minimal effort and very little time, you can install wallpaper in your home quickly and easily, making it the perfect DIY project to tackle this weekend…or any other weekend for that matter!
3. Carve Out A Space For Your Own Home Office
As we begin to adjust to new ways of life because of the ongoing pandemic, more and more people are working from home.
But it can be difficult to do so if you don’t have a dedicated area where you can do your daily work. With that being said, setting up a home office to suit your needs can be quick, easy, and fun!
Depending on your individual needs, the amount of space you’ll need may vary, and so will the features that you’ll have to have. For example, you may not need a huge amount of space to do your work. Maybe something similar to your cubicle at work. If that’s the case, a small table, laptop, printer, and phone might be enough.
However, if you really want to make the space your own, consider decorating it with the things that you love. Pictures of family and friends, art that you might like, and even various knick-knacks that you like can be used to personalize the space.
Having your own area that you’re excited to be in every day can make work more enjoyable, and can even help you be more productive. Plus, setting up your own home office shouldn’t take more than a few hours, and can be a great DIY project for any weekend.
Keep in mind that these are just a few ideas and that there are almost endless DIY projects to improve your home, and make your space feel more personal. Hopefully, these have inspired you to make some much-needed changes to your home, and to get creative with it!
