Fresh holiday DIY ideas
Tips | Posted on November 23, 2018
It’s almost holiday time, and many of us will be getting ready for visits from family and friends. Here’s a few simple ideas to spruce up your home and make it welcoming for the holiday season.
The heart of the home
You’ll be spending more time in the kitchen during the holiday season. Refreshing your kitchen doesn’t have to be a titanic project. A fresh, colourful coat of paint on the walls or cabinets is the quickest way to add a fresh touch to the space.
If you’re up for a bigger project, replace your old kitchen wall and floor tiles. By doing this you will give your space an entirely new look. Add a new sink mixer to complete the look. Nothing is more rewarding than a “before meets after project!”
Adding a few seasonal potted plants to your home, will add a welcoming touch.
If you have family and friends staying for the holidays, create a little ‘welcome box’ in the guest bathroom – filled with lotion, soap, bubble bath, maybe even a face mask. This is how best to earn brownie points!
There’s no better time than now to refresh your bathroom spaces. As with your kitchen, consider a new lick of paint, or new wall and floor tiles for a real makeover. An all-white bathroom, a zen-like retreat, a natural oasis – there’s so many options to choose from. Get creative and have fun with this rewarding holiday project!
Brighten up your holiday space with a bunch of colourful flowers. Instead of placing the entire bunch in one vase, divide up the flowers and place them in different areas of your home.
Nothing beats a beautiful scented home. Use essential oils, incense or scented candles to create a truly inviting atmosphere for guests.
In your guest bedrooms, the easiest way to transform the room is by replacing your duvet covers. Choose bright summer patterns and prints. Add colourful throws and scatter cushions to add a feeling of splendour.
Wishing you all the best for your holiday D.I.Y. projects!
