While you’re waiting to win, Decorland has some great ideas on how to update your home without spending a fortune. These easy DIY projects won’t take longer than an afternoon to finish – here’s to small changes with big impact!
1. Switch things up
Switching your curtains for blinds is a great way to let more light into a room and it’s a quick update. Don’t be daunted by the cost of blinds; Decorland sells affordable ready-made blinds. Hanging the blinds yourself slashes the cost of revamping a room even more.
Even if you’ve never done a day of DIY in your life, hanging your own blinds is easy, just watch this video.
Top tip: The pros always measure three times – just in case!
If there’s anything we’ve learned from our resident decor writer, it’s that details can make all the difference. Using practical accessories like curtain holdbacks, tie-backs or finials helps to pull a look together.
3. Something new
If you want a modern lounge, dining room or bedroom, we recommend replacing curtain tracks with curtain rods. All you need is a drill, a measuring tape and a spirit level and you’re a couple of hours away from a quick room update.
We love that Decorland has a great range of colours and materials, so you’re sure to find something to suit the style of your home, whether it’s rustic, modern or somewhere in-between.
Top tip: Longer curtains add height to your room, so consider hanging curtain rods or tracks further above the window frame.
4. Clever cover-up
Not keen on replacing your curtain tracks? Clip-on-wood rods for is one of the quickest (and cheapest) ways to upgrade your decor in an instant. They instantly frame windows and turns them into an eye-catching feature.
5. Makeover magic
Updating a feature wall with a stunning printed wallpaper will make the room feel brand new.
If you’re looking for an even easier way to use wallpaper, get creative and update shelves, cabinets and book cases. Apply the wallpaper to the backing of shelves for a pop of colour and at a fraction of the cost of buying new pieces.
