Staying at home to self isolate isn’t really as bad as it sounds. In fact, it gives you an opportunity to look around the house and find out what requires your attention. You can use this time for some DIY projects to improve your property and keep yourself occupied until everything’s back to normal.
Here are some simple DIY projects for kids and adults you can start amid self-quarantine.
Add More Storage
By now you have undoubtedly seen the clutters around the house. It’s time to get organised and the best way to do this is by adding more storage. Utilise the unused spaces in your home like under the stairs, the hallway, and small corners. Install new shelves, cabinets, and racks where you can store important things neatly and pack away the unnecessary stuff. Adding extra storage can also be a stylish way to display ornaments, books, and other home decors.
Convert Your Extra SpaceAside from creating more storage, you can also convert your unused spaces into a home office, a mini library, or a play area. These simple DIY projects don’t require any structural changes. This means they are quite easy to do but still fun and satisfying once you see the outcome. A library, study nook, and home workspace are particularly useful during this time of isolation. Here are some more tips on how to create your first home office.
Give New Life to Your BackyardTidying up your yard seems impossible when there is work, household chores, and kids occupying your mind. Now when you have the time, you can give your backyard a new life as you’ve always planned. Pull out the weeds, mow your lawn, and repaint the benches. Why not re-pot some plants, add new ones, and make an actual garden this time? And if the available materials permit it, build a DIY fence, fire pit, shade, and walkway. These will give your backyard a fresh look that you’ll enjoy for a long time.
Applying New PaintOne of the most budget-friendly DIY projects is repainting your home. Apply a new coat of paint, perhaps a lighter colour, to make your home look spacious and inviting. Stick to neutral colours if you’re planning to sell the property soon. If you can’t pick a new colour, then sticking your current one and applying fresh paint will do as well.
Plan your next home improvement
With these simple DIY projects, you can make good use of your time while quarantined at home and at the same time, give your property a fresh new look. However, if you’re not the handy type of person, then you can just leave the manual work to experts. In the meantime, you can plan your next home improvement and search for inspiration online.
