5 Budget DIY Home Updates To Do After Lockdown



So, you’ve spent the past few months stuck inside your house staring at that cracked wall or that stained carpet and you’ve made the choice that your house needs an update, but where will you start?

DIY and home improvements have understandably been a big area of interest over the past few months, with Home Depot stores seeing a huge increase in orders, and searches on Google for how to improve your home being the highest on record. That said, DIY and home improvements can be really expensive. So how do you keep the costs down? 
Keeping Costs Down
Sticking to the DIY method of home improvements can really help to keep the costs down. Websites like Home Fix Hobby can take you through step-by-step processes with information on both how to fix the easy stuff and the harder stuff!

It’s worth investing time in doing some DIY on your own: not only does it build the skills you’ll need to tackle bigger things in an emergency, but it’s also really great to be able to look back and say, “I did that.”

Here are five simple things you can do to update your home on your own.
Paint Your Rooms
Painting is quite easy. As long as you have half-decent walls to begin with (and even if you don’t, liming paper can help solve that problem), most people can grab a tin of paint and a roller and make a good go of it.
Fit A New Carpet
You may not be able to actually fit the carpet on your own, but you can certainly choose a new carpet for a fresh look. Fitting a carpet in a smaller, squarer room isn’t as difficult as it looks. Check out some helpful YouTube videos and give it a go. That said, bigger rooms may need a professional.
Repair Your Furniture
Hole in the sofa cushion? Wobbly table leg? Simple fixes like these need a little bit of research but you’ll save a fortune if you go the DIY route rather than bring in a professional. Check out some online articles for step-by-step help on this one.

Lay New Flooring
Many people think that laying flooring is really hard, and it’s true that some types of flooring are. Tiles and carpets can be quite fiddly to lay on your own if you have no experience, but linoleum and click-and-stick wood floors are really easy to fit on your own. If you really want carpet, have a look at fitting carpet tiles: cut, spray, and stick. Easy!

Update Your Soft Furnishings
A great way to update your place is to update your soft furnishings. The best thing about this is that it requires practically zero DIY skills, so it’s perfect for a beginner to try! You might decide to dye the sofa cushions, get a new pair of curtains, or buy a new area rug in a bold new color. Target and IKEA have some really well-priced soft furnishings and within a matter of hours, you could give your place the new spark it’s been needing.
