5 HOME DIY RENOVATION HACKS

Home / Self Storage / 5 HOME DIY RENOVATION HACKS

If you’re in the process of renovating your home, you understand how difficult and expensive it can be. There are a few simple things you can do during your renovation to make the process more simple, including using Self Storage in Narre Warren from StoreLocal Narre Warren.

1. Add tile

A tiled backsplash can add a lot of texture, depth, and colour to a room, whether it’s your kitchen or bathrooms. With tiles, you can easily create unique patterns, include feature strips of different tiles, or even create a brightly coloured feature. This is something that’s really simple to install and doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, but can still have a great impact on your rooms.

2. Make a fun feature wall

Similar to creating a backsplash in your kitchen or bathrooms, you can create a feature wall in your bedrooms or living spaces. Before you start the process, consider moving all the items in the room into Self Storage in Narre Warren to keep them protected from damage. Use a different coloured paint or bring in some wallpaper to create a feature wall that stands out. Once you’ve finished with the wall, reevaluate everything you moved into your storage unit. Does it all need to come back into the room, or can some of those items stay in storage?

3. Update the hardware

Something you can do at an affordable price that still makes an impact is updating the hardware. Change out the pulls, knobs, and hinges on your cabinets, drawers, and doors. This can completely transform the look of your rooms, as well as add some continuity across your house without breaking your bank account.

5. Add some mirrors

If you want to create the illusion of having larger rooms, add some mirrors. Mirrors make great additions to living rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms, and hallways. Mirrors can not only make the rooms feel larger, but can also act as a great decorative piece.

5. Recycle

You don’t need to buy everything brand new. Instead, try and recycle and reuse as much of your old furniture as possible. A fresh coat of paint or varnish can completely change the look and feel of an old piece of furniture. Sometimes, all a piece needs is a thorough clean to look brand new again. You can use your Self Storage in Narre Warren as a temporary workshop while you’re repurposing your old furniture. Lay some plastic sheets on the floors to protect your storage unit from damage.
