Painless DIY Home Improvement Ideas

 Sometimes it might seem that only DIY gurus can produce good DIY products and spend no time on that. They only make videos and posts about their state-of-the-art sculptures or items, which you can not duplicate. If you have been thinking this way, it’s the right time to look at DIY from another perspective.

 

DIY is not about you repeating everything you see and blindly following the given instructions. It only provides you with the secret technique of doing something that you are interested in. Specialists give you the ingredients while you choose the ways to mix them (taking, of course, safety precautions, when necessary). To inspire you to make some home improvement, below are four blueprint ideas to spice up your creativity and transform your living space.

 

1.    Paint Your Doors

Doors are portals to new realities; the reality that you create yourself inside your house. Your choice, in this case, will condition the initial vibe that any room and even your house will transfer. Hence, you want your apartment or home to convey your creativity and taste, and your door can become your first canvas. Paint it with the colors you like and decorate with accessories you find fitting. Depending on what you want to feel when you are at home, you can go from pastel colors of tranquility to flashing colors of vigor.

 

 

2.    Add Some Brick Walls

The avant-garde brick walls have penetrated a fashion barrier. Years ago, they would signify that the building is still being constructed, and there was nothing chic in them. Today, they are an excellent fit with the up-to-the-minute fashion trends. Here, you can go two ways. If you don’t have brick walls, you can opt for the option of faux brick walls. Yep, you heard that right. It would cost you some time and money for the materials, but you can DIY that wall using mainly wood panels and caulk. In case you already have brick walls, you can change their color or even whitewash them. White latex paint and some painting equipment, and you are ready to go.

 

3.    Become a Soap and/or Candle Producer

Soaps and candles can seem complicated to make at first glance because of all the chemical reactions involved. However, you can easily transfer that chemistry between elements into the chemistry of your new hobby. The best thing about soaps and candles is that you can sell them and get some passive income if you have the time. If you don’t, you can still enjoy the aroma process of mixing colors, scents, and ingredients. Another good news is that companies have been producing ready-made pre-mixed bases, which will ease your job a lot. After getting the base, you need to grab your imagination and start inventing (don’t forget about safety precautions!)

 

4.    Make a Window Seat with a Terrarium

It is hard to remember a romantic movie without that cozy window seat starring in it. Many people long for a comfortable space near the window where they can sit with a cup of hot drink. This window seat is almost for everything: reading, listening to music, relaxing, working, you name it. So what about customizing it and elevating its comfort? The small window seat gives a big room for you to improve it. For example, you can weave pillow covers, put or clip your favorite fabric on the windowsill or you can make a DIY terrarium to bring some nature in! As you can see, there are many options of what you can do. The bottom line is that DIY-ing this place should make you return there with pleasure.
