Tips and ideas for DIY Home Improvement

Depending on the rooms that you are renovating, there are many ways you can update and improve your home without breaking the budget. Doing it yourself will save you your hard earned cash and create a home that is truly your own; one that is distinctively your style.

The first thing you have to decide on is the look and feel that you want for your improved home. Modern chic, cottage cosy or traditional, the style will impact on the colors you choose to paint with, what fixtures you use and the furniture you choose.

For bedrooms, Avoid big blank walls; it will make a room feel under-scale and empty. Fill a large wall with an extra-large piece of artwork. If your bedroom doesn’t get a lot of natural light, don’t cover up the windows with heavy treatments. Consider sheer curtains to help keep the room bright. Your nightstands don’t have to match. If you prefer a feminine style and your partner likes a more masculine look, choose different ones. Add high-style artwork to your walls with wall decals. You can buy geometric shapes or even nature-inspired wall decals, like whimsical trees, fun silhouettes of chandeliers or even dogs. Your local hardware store, such as Sunlite Mitre 10, will have a lot of these options so when you decide to renovate, you can get everything you need in one place.

For the dining room consider using candles instead of pure overhead lighting. Try introducing a subtle scent into the main area of the house to welcome guests and your family after a hard day at work. Instead of buying a whole new dining setting, try reupholstering your beloved dining chairs.


Bathrooms are often overlooked as renovating them can be quite expensive, but there are some affordable ways to improve your outdated bathroom. Try changing the mirrors to a different shape or changing the light bulb and fixture to something more subtle and inviting. Match up bath mats and rails to create a modern or classic look. You don’t have to pull out the bath to create a new feel.

  1. I love the tips, we am still struggling with what style we want have in my house. This is probably why we started with the laundry room. We'll work our way up to the big stuff.
