Make the most out of Isolation, with these simple home improvement tips

We’ve never spent so much time inside, as during this pandemic. That’s why now is the perfect opportunity to put that time at home to good use, by undertaking some simple home improvement exercises. 

We’ve got ten ideas to get you started. 

  1. Spring clean for a thorough spruce up.

Now is the time to get your house ready for Summer and potential visitors in the hotter months, by undertaking a thorough Spring Clean. We’ve got a checklist with ten ideas  to help you get started. 

  1. Find your perfect couch.

Updating a key furniture piece can have a massive impact on your home and living space. Picking the perfect couch is important, but there are many bargains to be had at retailers at the moment. Or, you could even find a second-hand couch to keep costs down.

  1. Get inventive with new soft furnishings.

Discover what rugs work best for your home, and invest in some new accent pieces to liven up your spaces. Look at bright blues, greens, burnt oranges and pinks, to stay up-to-date with current trends.

  1. Modernise with colour.

If you are feeling the pandemic pinch, and need to be thrifty with any home improvement ideas, try adding a splash of colour to modernise outdated spaces. Even something as simple as a brightly coloured mug, or even just vibrant fruit like lemons and limes placed in a bowl, can really brighten a room and make it feel fresh and modern.

  1. Get smart with small spaces.

You might not believe it, but there are so many things you can do with small spaces to bring out the WOW factor. Don’t be afraid to play with colour, mirrors, levels or clever storage ideas, to trick and transform.

  1. Hang some fresh art.

The simple act of hanging some fresh art can make a huge difference to how your home is presented. If you don’t have any art sitting around, and can’t afford to purchase some, try a framed print OR even create a hanging space for your kids to show off their art. They are mini Picassos afterall.

  1. Introduce a sanitation station.

Unfortunately, our new normal is a little different to the life we had all grown accustomed to, but what better way to embrace it than by making a specific, stylised space in your home for sanitation? It could be in the entryway, hallway, or any other area near the entrance of your home. You could even invest in a hands free sanitiser to add a modern, innovative touch.

  1. Convert a nook or spare bedroom into a home office.

With the whole world largely working from home at the moment, most of us need a functional, quiet home office to get things done in. Try converting a nook, or spare bedroom into an office space with the introduction of a nice desk, comfy chair and some stationary and decor items.

  1. Plant a little positivity in your garden.

Right now, we need all the positivity we can get, so why not plant some? Turn your outdoor space into a flower garden, green oasis, cactus walk or even, a mini orchard and vegetable garden.

  1. Have your carpets and upholstery professionally cleaned.

When it all comes down to it, an improved home means nothing if your carpet and upholstery is dirty, lacklustre, and in need of some serious TLC.
