If you’re thinking of new decor for your home, there are various options that you can do by yourself. These ideas will give you a chance to improve your creativity, show your style, and create changes that will make an impact. Here are some inspiring DIY home decor ideas to upgrade your place:
Design with Decorative Laminates
High-pressure laminate sheets are one of the most popular materials in home decor because of their durability, hygienic properties, and easy maintenance. They come in various colors and designs and can be used for different purposes, from upgrading your shelving units to designing your kitchen.
Make sure to follow a comprehensive HPL installation guide because decorative laminates are different. Each kind of laminate comes with slightly different properties that should be taken into account during application. Here are some design ideas for decorative laminates:
- You can install a contrasting laminate against the wall for a beautiful backdrop.
- Kitchen laminates can be turned into a multipurpose wall panel where you can hang your precious china, creating something innovative and unique.
- Door laminates allow you to express your creativity as they add exclusive and unique style to every room.
- Decorative laminates can give your home bar a sleek statement by using them on cabinets, shelves, and storage boxes.
- Use laminates to surface your bookshelves and give them a unique look. You can also apply them inside to act as a lining.
- Since laminate sheets are durable and easy to clean, they are perfect to use on your kitchen countertops. They are also heat and scratch-resistant, perfect as a surfacing material.
Add Baskets on Your Bathroom Wall
Adding baskets on the wall is both stylish and functional. It’s a great way to keep your towels and toiletries organized while making a fashionable statement. Also, baskets are easy to find and affordable, and you can choose among eco-friendly options such as sisal grass, palm leaves, and raffia.
Make sure the baskets match your room’s current style. For instance, identify patterns that are already present in your bathroom, then choose your baskets according to their shape and designs. You can start with a large basket as a focal point, then group other baskets asymmetrically, overlapping some edges if desired.
Recycle Wooden Crates
Wooden crates are perfect for repurposing for various uses such as storage, rolling carts, shelves, or small bedside tables. They are practical to use as furniture, organizer, and decor. For instance, you can fit smaller bins inside the crates to serve as storage areas for gloves, umbrellas, sunglasses, and more.
You can also make a bookcase by stacking a few crates. Aside from looking stylish and eye-catching, these crates also maximize the available usable space in the room. If you have a small room, you can create an ottoman that serves as a seat and storage area in one. You can cover it with any colorful fabric to make it more decorative and look completely new.
Display Plants in Custom Containers
Displaying plants and flowers is a great way to add cheer to your entire home. To make them more beautiful, put them on repurposed vases or pots such as paint cans, cracked mugs, old kettles, or small watering cans. You can also use antique cabinets as a stand for the plants for a more sustainable effect.
One of the unique planter ideas is homemade book planters. By cutting a hole in the middle of some books, you can display your plants in various places around the house for an eye-catching display. These are also perfect as gifts this holiday season.
Paint Your Walls
You can create amazing and personalized artwork by painting your walls. If you’re a beginner painter, you can use the stencil painting technique. You have to print paper molds in various designs, words, and symbols, cut each template, place it on the wall, and fill the entire figure with spray paint.
Make the design more interesting by choosing a color that contrasts with its background. It’s recommended to start at the center of the wall. If you want to be safe, pick a spot where a mistake will be less noticeable. Don’t worry because your technique will surely improve as you go through the project.
These decorating tips are great for adding stylish improvements to your home design this new year. Make sure you’re able to do something that expresses your creativity in making something that’s both functional, sustainable, and appealing. This upgrade will set the mood not only for the upcoming celebrations but also for the whole year ahead.
