If you love getting your hands dirty and engaging in fun DIY, home renovation projects in order to put your mark on your home, you’ve come to the right place. As listed below are a few upcoming DIY trends that are well experimenting with. Especially if you are excited about giving your home a new lease on life.
5 Upcoming DIY trends:
Hardwood flooring or hardwood inspired flooring:
One upcoming trend that you may want to latch onto is replacing cheap flooring in your home with hardwood flooring. Which is a great idea if you want to increase the value of your home and would like to give your home a more upmarket feel. As a bonus, while hardwood flooring is particularly trendy right now, hardwood floor never dates and will ensure that your home will look modern for years to come. If you don’t have the experience or knowledge to install hardwood flooring, you can also opt for vinyl flooring which is easy enough to install and can sometimes just be clicked into place. With convenient puzzle-like pieces.
Baskets on bathroom walls:
If your bathroom could do with a little more storage space and you’re not ready to invest in swapping out your bathroom counters, for options which offer more storage space, you may want to hang baskets on your bathroom walls. Which you’ll be able to use to store items such as your toiletries, medication and towels. For example, you may want to opt for wicker baskets.
If you’d like to add a contemporary vibe to your home, instead of simply repainting some of the walls in your home, you may want to consider using statement wallpaper in your lounge, bedroom or study. In order to add a bit of chic style to your chosen room. For example, if you’re not afraid of taking bold style risks, you may want to opt for a black and white polka dot print. As polka dot print is definitely a style trend to watch out for this year.
Washi tape wall art:
If you want to add a bit of artwork to your walls and don’t want to spend a small fortune on new artwork, you can create a one of a kind piece of art on a feature wall, using washi tape. This is a particularly great idea if you like abstract designs or geometric prints. One of the advantages to using washi tape is that if you make a mistake, you can remove any washi tape that you’re unhappy with straight away.
Full sized wall paintings:
Another trend that you may be interested in is creating a full sized wall painting for your lounge or bedroom. For example, you may want to paint a forest behind your bed.
Alternatively, if you’re less of a risk taker, you may want to opt for floral wallpaper instead. Just avoid small prints that make your home look unintentionally dated and opt for larger, bold flowers that will give your home a youthful, modern look.
