Last Updated on December 30, 2020Are you tired of your old, dull home furniture? Do you spend hours and hours scrolling through home decoration Instagram accounts dreaming of a thousand different ways to redecorate your house? Well, you are not alone. Many people would really love to make complete renovations to their homes to get them to their liking. The problem is when you look at the prices of the pieces of furniture that you like and start adding them all up. Fortunately, you don’t have to spend a big fortune buying stylish designer furniture to have your dream home décor. There are many cheap ways to revamp your old furniture and make it look amazing. You just need a little inspiration, creativity, good taste, and crafting skills (or willingness to acquire them). Here are a few DIY home décor ideas that will get you started!
1. Replace Knobs And Handles
This little trick might be enough to give your old cabinets a new life. There is a huge variety of knobs and handles in every major furniture store, so you will find something that suits your style, and that can make your kitchen or bathroom cabinets much more appealing. If you have very simple and kind of boring cabinets, installing some fancy handles will certainly make all the difference. Besides, these items are extremely cheap and easy to replace! You shouldn’t have any trouble doing it yourself.
2. Reupholster Your Old Sofa
The upholstery of a sofa usually gets worn out pretty quickly- Especially if you sit in the same spot every day, for the whole evening – as most of us do. Even if the fabric is of very high quality, it’s only a matter of time before you start to notice the wear. It is simply unavoidable. But that doesn’t mean that you should throw away your sofa after a few years of intensive use. Just find a new upholstery to replace your old one. You can take this opportunity to choose a color or pattern that best suits your living room décor. Unless you have some experience, this is not something that you should DIY. There are small local businesses or craftsmen who do this kind of work, so you will have to find one near you – but keep in mind that all this can be a little bit on the expensive side.
