DIY Update Ideas
For the past six months, many people have been spending the majority of their time inside their homes. It’s only natural that, after staring at your own four walls for this long, you may notice a thing or two that needs fixing or updating. We thought this would be the perfect time to create a blog with some do-it-yourself (DIY) home update ideas.
Paint Your Bathroom
We often hear from our clients that the bathroom is the last place to be updated, for some reason. It’s amazing what painting an accent wall or putting a fresh coat of paint on the walls can do to refresh your space. Because most powder rooms are on the smaller side, opt for a lighter shade of paint to keep the space feeling open and large — painting with darker colours will bring the walls in and make the room feel small. If you need to remove old wallpaper or a border, check out this blog post for help.
Freshen Up Your Home’s Exterior
A homeowner’s work is never done. There are usually a ton of different projects to tackle outside of the home. Now that the temperature is slowly cooling and becoming a bit more comfortable, it is the perfect time to re-stain your deck or fence, clean and paint your siding or your brick.
Upcycle Old Furniture
If you’re tired of looking at your grandmother’s old coffee table or that dresser that you found on Kijiji, why not give it a facelift at home? It’s amazing how much better you can make old wood furniture look with some sandpaper and a coat of paint. Stick with white or grey and add some new knobs. You’ll be surprised at just how great a refinished piece of furniture can look in your home.
