Accessible Renovation Ideas Before Christmas Arrives

3 Mins read

It’s almost Christmas, and it’s just about time to start preparing and celebrating the holiday seasons. Many homeowners take this opportunity to either beautify their home or do some general cleaning. And if you’re looking to take advantage of this while preparing for the upcoming festive time, here are some tips to help you out:

Time to Change Linens

The same old things can lead to boredom quite fast. And an easy way to shake off the boredom in your house is by changing linens and curtains! It can be tough to find the perfect linens to fit your style, but it’s really worth the effort. Swapping out old curtains, upholstery, and linens for the ones you’ve got right now will not only improve the overall look of your home but will also make it easier to maintain your older ones. It’s always better to have one less thing to worry about when it comes to maintenance and repairs. Changing these aspects of your home is one sure way to guarantee a fresh feeling on Christmas.

Brighten Up Your Walls

The walls of your home are probably the least talked about, but they can actually make or break your space. If you have a dingy living room, you can spruce it up in no time by simply using paint. When it comes to walls, try to choose a neutral paint color so that it works with any color scheme. Then, make the room cozier by hanging pictures of your favorite pastimes or decorating it with a fun mural. Or, since Christmas is fast arriving, start putting up Christmas-themed decors.

In the kitchen, make sure that your appliances are covered in a neutral hue. For a more rustic look, try repainting a wooden cabinet. If you want to make the most out of your dining area, you can make your own rustic dining room murals using an artist’s palette. New colors will give your home a fresh look, so consider adding new colors.

Try Out Different Sinks

While this advice might require you to hire an emergency plumber, it’s still a relatively accessible idea. Consider using a vessel sink, like a bowl or a tray that sits on top of your bathroom counter so you get more space for storage. You can also get a pedestal sink that looks elegant and is space-saving but has very little storage space underneath. A new sink is a great way to change the look of your bathroom, so consider this tip carefully.

Start a Garden

 If you’re the lucky owner of a sprawling home with tons of space, you’re able to grow your own fresh herbs in a garden. You’ll not only be able to smell the lovely smells, but you’ll also be helping to fight off colds and flu by keeping your home safe and healthy. Fresh herbs such as basil, rosemary, mint, parsley, thyme, and sage are all great for cooking, and they can even be used in salves and teas to soothe sore muscles.

Fresh herbs are inexpensive and you’ll find many grocery stores, even for places like the farmers market. You’ll also have a great resource to cook from in your garden or even a kitchen garden!

Try Out These DIY Ideas

Do-it-yourself projects are always a good option for basic renovations. They’re relatively easy to achieve and don’t take much out of your wallet too. Here’s some you can try.

DIY Upgraded Laundry Hamper. The best part about this laundry hamper is that it doesn’t need to be pretty to work. You can simply just grab a water basin, particularly a large one, and put your old clothes there. It sounds basic, but it works, and if you put the time into designing it (especially with Christmas themes), then it becomes pretty.

DIY Upgraded Coffee Table. If you have a coffee table that’s getting a little outdated, why not reupholster it? Go for reds and greens for that Christmas feel. You’ll save a ton of money in the long run, since this piece of furniture is likely the one piece of furniture you’ll have for a long time.

DIY Stacked Side Chair. This DIY side chair is a great option for kids. If you’ve got some scrap wood lying around, you can build a simple, easy side chair for the kids’ room. This requires more work, but there are a lot of accessible plans for it, so look around!

Doing renovations, especially affordable and accessible renovations is fun. Add the fact that you’re preparing for the upcoming celebratory season, it just makes the experience ten times better.
