Choose Your Photos

The first step in creating a photo gallery wall is choosing the images you want to display. This could be a mix of old and new photos, or you could choose a theme like "photos from our last vacation" or "photos of the kids". You will need to consider the size and aspect ratio of your photos when choosing them.

Select Your Frames

Once you've chosen your photos, it's time to select the frames. This is where you can really personalise your gallery wall. You could opt for matching frames or mix it up with different sizes, colours, and styles. Think about the overall aesthetic you want to achieve in your space when choosing your frames. You might want to choose frames that match your existing decor or use frames as an opportunity to introduce a new colour scheme.

Plan Your Layout

Before you start hanging, it's important to plan your layout. This could be a grid, a collage, or a more organic arrangement. You can use painter's tape to mark out the frames on your wall to help you visualise the layout. This step is crucial as it helps you see how the gallery wall will look in real life before you start hanging anything. Planning your layout in advance can also help you avoid any mistakes once you start hanging your frames.

Hang Your Frames

Once you're happy with your layout, it's time to start hanging your frames. Use a level and ruler to ensure they're straight and evenly spaced. If you're using different frame sizes, you must adjust the spacing accordingly. It's also a good idea to hang your frames in the order they'll appear on the wall to make sure everything lines up correctly. This also helps your wall look balanced and well-composed.

Add Extra Décor

While a gallery wall of photos can be stunning, you might want to add some extra decor elements to enhance it. This could be string lights, garlands, wall decals, or even a piece of artwork. These extra touches can help to make your gallery wall unique and personal. They can also add depth and dimension to your gallery wall, making it even more visually interesting.

Consider Rotating Your Photos

One of the best things about a DIY photo gallery wall is that it's entirely customisable. You can change out photos, frames, and decor as often as you like to keep it fresh and exciting. It’s a fun change to rotate your photos seasonally or whenever you have new images to display. This will ensure that your gallery wall always stays current and reflects your current interests and mood.

Get your tools ready, and let’s give your home some fresh new improvements. Here are some quick and easy do-it-yourself (DIY) home renovation ideas to give your space a special look—no contractor required.

Paint Your Walls

If you’re on a budget but still want to give your home a revitalised interior design, one of the most affordable and easiest techniques to do is to paint your walls. Painting the walls of your living room, bedroom, and other parts of your home can help eliminate dirt, cover stains, or replace fading wallpaper and give your home a fresh and clean atmosphere. 

When choosing the right colour, start by thinking about the mood you want to create and selecting a paint colour that aligns with the principles of colour psychology to help achieve your desired result. For example, yellow paints can make small kitchens look bigger and make people feel calm and happy. Experts also suggest painting the living room blue. When paired with white hues, blue paint colour brings a vibe that’s cool and relaxing. 

If you’re not sure which colour to choose, pick an area that’s quick to paint, such as your powder room, bathroom, or accent wall. Painting small areas first allows you to see the results sooner and make adjustments accordingly until you’re satisfied.  

Tweak Your Existing Cabinetry

Another home improvement idea is to update your existing cabinetry. You might want to repaint your drawers and bookcases a new shade, replace door handles and other cabinet hardware, or add undercabinet lighting to your kitchen cabinets; all these quick and easy improvements can give your cabinet a huge makeover!

Upgrade Your Flooring

Installing new wood or tile floors to refresh your interior flooring may require a significant amount of time and, of course, money. If you wish to revitalise your floors while sticking to a budget, rolling out rugs and carpets can be an instant option. A wide range of antimicrobial carpets are available on the market nowadays, which effectively inhibit the growth of fungi, bacteria, and dust mites within the carpet fibres.

In outdoor areas of your home, artificial grass can add vibrancy to your surroundings. Mimicking the appearance of natural grass, artificial grass is resistant to fading and can maintain its aesthetic appeal for 10 to 15 years.

Replace Old Caulk

Replacing old caulk is an easy DIY bathroom remodelling hack to maintain the freshness of your bathroom and prevent the growth of mildew. 

Before applying new caulk around your bathtub, shower, or sink, it is necessary to remove the old caulk. New caulk won’t adhere to old caulk, so leaving the old caulk in place can prevent the formation of a watertight seal, potentially allowing moisture to penetrate areas where it's unwanted

Install Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are an appealing option for your home, especially if you’re aiming to save more money on electricity bills. Ceiling fans reduce air conditioning costs and lower heating expenses by circulating warm air away from the ceiling.

When searching for the right ceiling fan, consider the height of the ceiling, the type of blades (wood, plastic, or metal), and the fan motor.  

Customise Storage Areas

Customise Storage Areas

Besides having new shelving, it may be a good idea to create custom storage in different spaces in your home. This will allow you to keep seasonal items such as decorations and curtains, old books, mementos, and blankets.

The best area at home to create custom storage is under the stairs if possible, but you can also opt for a headboard with storage in your bedroom or go for a bed frame with drawers.

Update The Light fixture

Another do-it-yourself home improvement idea is to enhance your home’s light fixtures. You can simply swap all the old light bulbs with new LED lights to improve illumination and energy efficiency. But before swapping out any old bulbs, first assess whether or not your fixtures are worth keeping or if a light fixture refresh would suit the look and function of your space. 

You can also consider adding a chandelier with several pendants to give your space a game-changing focal point.

Change Your Kitchen’s Backsplash

Replace your kitchen’s old backsplash with trendy kitchen backsplash,  one that adds visual interest. With a variety of options such as glass, stone, ceramic, or beadboard, you can choose the perfect material that’s also right for your budget. 

By trying out some of  the ideas above, you could prove that sometimes the smallest and simplest change in your home can make a huge impact. Have a go at one or more of these easy home renovation projects and see how easy it is to refresh the look and functionality of your home without spending much!

 

1. Clean Wall Surfaces Before Painting

clean wall surfaces before painting

Before you begin your house painting journey, prepare the wall surfaces by cleaning them thoroughly to remove dust, cobwebs, and other imperfections. When cleaning, start by dusting the walls and wiping them using a clean pad with warm water. Once done, dry the walls with a towel to eliminate the remaining moisture. 

2. Prevent Excess Paint Drips Using a Rubber Band

paint drips using a rubber band

When you dip your brush into the paint, excess paint often gathers on the bristles, resulting in drips when you lift the brush out of the paint can. Prevent this by stretching a rubber band horizontally over the opening of the paint can and using the rubber band as a convenient ledge for wiping off excess paint from the brush. Not only does this help reduce waste and paint spots on the floor, but it also keeps the edges of the can clean, making it easier to reseal when not in use. 

3. Cover Paint Trays

cover paint trays

Let’s face it, cleaning out messy paint trays is a time-consuming task. Minimise clean-up time and mess by covering the tray with a plastic bag. Make sure that the bag covers the entire inside of the tray, including the edges. Once the bag is in place, pour the paint directly onto the tray as you normally would. The plastic bag serves as a barrier between the paint and the tray itself.

4. Wait for the Right Weather

wait for the right weather

Rainy days typically come with higher humidity levels in the air. Painting in humid weather prevents the paint from drying quickly and affects the paint’s ability to adhere properly to the wall surface. 

Painting on a dry, scorching day is not advisable either. The paint could dry too fast, resulting in blisters, cracks, or bumps. 

5. Use Petroleum Jelly to Protect Areas You Don’t Want to Get Painted

petroleum jelly to protect areas

If you want to prevent door knobs, screws, and window locks from sticking, another painting hack is to apply petroleum jelly. Using a cotton swab, rub petroleum jelly on the small parts of your home that you don’t want to get painted. The petroleum jelly acts as a barrier between the painted surfaces and helps prevent them from sticking together when the paint dries.

6. Clean Your Brushes Using Vinegar

clean your brushes using vinegar

Generally, we use warm, soapy water to rinse paint brushes, but that isn’t enough to get all the paint off the brush. Vinegar does all the magic to clean paintbrushes and remove stubborn paint residue. Just soak the paintbrushes in a container filled with vinegar for several hours or overnight and get your trusty old brush ready for a new paint job! 

7. Keep Brushes Nice and Soft with Fabric Softener

nice and soft with fabric softener

You might have left your paint brushes unwashed overnight and found them the next morning stiff and rock hard. If you want to keep your brushes soft, add a cap of fabric softener to a container of warm water and soak the brushes for a minute. Swirl the paint brushes around in the fabric softener, ensuring that it is evenly distributed throughout the bristles.

8. Not Done Painting? Put Your Brushes and Paint Rollers in a Plastic Wrap!

brushes and paint rollers in a plastic

Painting rooms properly can frequently require a few days, and cleaning brushes and paint rollers between sessions can be a tedious job. Instead of washing each time, cover your brushes and roller tightly with plastic wrap to prevent them from becoming stiff and drying out. 

9. Paint Perfect Straight Lines Using Tape

paint perfect straight lines using tape

Masking tape, or painter’s tape, is a popular tool to help you paint perfectly straight lines. All you have to do is carefully apply the tape to the surface and get the paint in all the right places. When it’s time to remove the tape, start peeling at a 45-degree angle to minimise paint damage. You can also use a hair dryer to blow some heat on the tape and soften its adhesive before you finally peel it off the wall.

10. Reduce Paint Fumes with Vanilla

reduce paint fumes with vanilla

Paint fumes are smelly, so to neutralise the odour, add a tablespoon of vanilla extract to a gallon of paint. Vanilla extract contains aromatic compounds that have a pleasant and strong scent, which can help mask the smell of paint fumes. 

11. Choose VOC-Free Paints

choose voc free paints

Volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, are harmful gases that are emitted from processes and products, including paint. High VOC levels, when inhaled, can lead to adverse health issues such as headaches, nausea, and damage to the liver.

Use paints that contain low to no VOCs; while they might cause more, they are known to be safer for you and your family. 

12. Squeeze More Paint Using a Putty Knife

putty knife

Once you’re done painting, place the paint roller over the edge of the paint can and scrape the roller down using a putty knife. You’ll be surprised with the amount of paint that the roller can hold, which you can use on your next painting project!

13. Use Slow and Steady Strokes When Painting the Ceiling

use slow and steady strokes

Slow and steady strokes rather than moving the paint roller around in a random pattern will allow you to achieve a smooth finish and reduce the risk of paint dripping onto the floor.

14. Turn Acrylic Paint into Spray Paint

spray paint

Turn your acrylic paint on hand into custom spray paint using a spray paint medium kit, which you can find at most craft stores. Just pour an equal amount of spray paint medium and acrylic paint into a bottle. Shake the bottle to thoroughly mix the paint, then attach the provided sprayer to the bottle's top and you’re ready to go! This trick is useful when you need a specific paint colour that isn't available in spray form.

Whether you're looking to refresh a room or redefine your entire home ambience, the possibilities are endless when armed with a paintbrush, a vision, and some smart hacks from us! Ready to paint? Let’s get all the work done! 

We’ve compiled a few ideas to help you keep your space tidy, and keep your sanity. 

The Need for Toy Organisation

Toy organisation is not just about keeping your home tidy; it's also about creating a conducive environment for your child's play and learning. A well-organised toy collection can make it easier for children to find their toys and engage in play, while also reducing the time spent on cleaning up.

Organised toys can also help in teaching children about responsibility and tidiness. When children learn to store their toys in designated places, they are learning important life skills that will benefit them in the future.

Toy Storage Ideas for Different Toy Types

Board Games and Puzzles:

board game storage

When it comes to storing board games and puzzles, a dedicated box or shelf can be a great solution. The key is to keep them accessible and visible. Consider using clear containers or large clear pouches so your child can quickly see what the game is.

Action Figures and Dolls:

doll storage

Storing action figures and dolls can be a bit more challenging due to their delicate nature. Try a hanging shoe organiser to keep dolls organised, separated and protected. 

LEGO and Building Blocks:

lego storage

LEGO and building blocks can be stored in clear containers or bins with lids. If you have a lot of LEGO pieces, consider using sorting trays. Sorting trays can be made from plastic or cardboard and can be labelled according to the colour or type of LEGO piece. This can make it easier for your child to find the pieces they need and can prevent the pieces from getting lost.

Stuffed Animals:

Stuffed animals can take up a lot of space. They are best stored in a bin or a box with a lid. If you have a large collection, consider using a storage ottoman or a toy chest. These pieces of furniture can be both functional and decorative. Alternatively, consider a wall-mounted hammock, this keeps the toys off the floor and looks cute in children’s bedrooms.

Books:

book storage

One of the most overlooked spaces in the home is the back of the door. This space is often underutilised, but it can serve as a great spot for storage, especially for children's books. Find a sturdy shelf system to display books and keep them in easy reach. 

Storing and Protecting Outdoor Toys

The key to storing outdoor toys is to keep them dry and protected from the elements. Make sure the storage solution you choose is suitable for the type and size of the toys you have.

Toy Bins:

Toy bins with lids are a great way to store smaller outdoor toys like balls, toy cars, and action figures. They are easy to carry and can be stacked for better utilisation of space.

Hanging Organisers:

For toys like jump ropes, frisbees, or kites, hanging organisers can be a good solution. They keep the toys off the ground and within easy reach.

Tarpaulin:

Tarpaulin with handles can be used to cover and protect larger toys like sandboxes, slides, or inflatable pools. They are durable and can withstand outdoor conditions.

Pegboard Wall Storage:

For smaller toys that can be hung, consider using a pegboard wall storage system. This can be a fun and creative way to display and store toys.

Outdoor Toy Boxes:

There are many outdoor toy boxes available in the market that are designed specifically for storing outdoor toys. They are weather-resistant and can withstand outdoor conditions.

Outdoor Bar and BBQ

Who doesn't love the combination of a cool outdoor bar and a sizzling BBQ? This idea is perfect for those who enjoy hosting outdoor parties.

The key to this setup is to integrate the bar and the BBQ in a way that complements each other. You could consider using the same materials for both or at least ensure they're in the same colour scheme. Remember to also think about the flow of movement. You want your guests to be able to move easily from the bar to the grill and back again.

To build your outdoor bar and BBQ setup, you'll need to plan out the layout first. This could involve creating a separate area for the bar and the BBQ, or perhaps merging the two into one cohesive unit. The choice is yours, but either way, the goal is to create a space that is both functional and inviting.

Reclaimed Wood Outdoor Bar

If you're looking for a rustic and eco-friendly option, a reclaimed wood outdoor bar might be just what you need. Reclaimed wood gives your outdoor bar a natural and rustic look. It's also a great way to recycle old materials and reduce waste.

To build your reclaimed wood outdoor bar, you'll need to gather old wooden planks or pallets. Once you've collected your materials, you'll need to sand them down to remove any rough edges and then stain or paint them to protect them from the elements. You could also consider adding a varnish or sealant to give the wood a glossy finish.

Outdoor Bar with Pizza Oven

Who said an outdoor bar can't have a pizza oven? If you love pizza and entertaining, this might be the perfect idea for you. An outdoor bar with a pizza oven is a great way to impress your guests. It's also a fun and interactive way to cook, as your guests can help make the pizzas.

Building an outdoor bar with a pizza oven can be a bit more complex than a regular outdoor bar. You'll need to consider the size of the oven, the materials it's made from, and how it will be connected to your bar. You might also need to think about ventilation, as a pizza oven can produce a lot of smoke.

Pull down Outdoor Bar

If you're short on space or want to keep your outdoor area versatile, a pull-down outdoor bar might be a great option for you. A pull-down bar is exactly what it sounds like - a bar that pulls down from the ceiling or a wall. This allows you to use the space for other activities when it's not in use.

Building a pull-down bar involves installing a track system and then attaching your bar to it. You can choose to build a basic bar or go all out with lights and shelves. The key to a successful pull-down bar is to ensure it's securely attached and can withstand the elements.

There are many creative DIY outdoor bar ideas that you can consider for your backyard. Whether you're looking for a simple setup or something more elaborate, there's an option that will suit your needs. So, get creative and start planning your dream outdoor bar!

Its origins can be traced back to ancient civilisations such as Egypt and Rome. However, it wasn't until the Middle Ages that stained glass truly came into its own, adorning the grand cathedrals and churches of Europe with intricate, colourful designs. These windows were not only a source of religious inspiration but also a way to tell stories through vivid imagery.

One of the most enchanting qualities of stained glass is its ability to transform the quality of natural light in a space. When sunlight filters through stained glass, it creates a mesmerizing dance of colours and patterns across the room. Stained glass isn't limited to windows alone. It can be seamlessly integrated into various architectural elements of your home, including doors, skylights, and room dividers.

Stained glass offers homeowners a canvas for personalisation and self-expression. You can work with a skilled artisan to create a design that reflects your personality, interests, or family history. Whether you want to depict a favourite landscape, commemorate a special occasion, or pay tribute to a loved one, stained glass allows you to tell your story in a truly unique way.

*Timeless elegance for your home!

The first step to achieving a practical closet is customisation. One size does not fit all when it comes to storage needs. Custom-built shelving, hanging rods, and drawers can maximise every inch of space and make it easy to access your items. Consider incorporating shoe storage solution as well, shoes can quickly clutter a closet and create chaos. Practical closets incorporate smart shoe storage solutions, such as shelves, racks, or pull-out drawers designed specifically for footwear. This not only keeps your closet organised but also helps extend the life of your favourite pairs by preventing scuffs and damage.

Practical closets prioritise visibility and accessibility. It's frustrating to rummage through a pile of clothes to find what you're looking for. Clear, open shelving and well-designed hanging systems make it easy to see and access your clothing and accessories. Think about adding pull-out trays, hooks, or dividers to keep everything neatly in place. Vertical space is often underutilised in closets. Make use of this valuable real estate with stacked shelves, hanging organizers, and wall-mounted accessories. This not only provides additional storage but also keeps your closet clutter-free and organised.

Whether you're revamping your existing closet or designing a new one, customisation, thoughtful organisation, and a focus on accessibility will help you create a closet that not only meets your storage needs but also enhances your overall quality of life.

Wallpaper offers an extensive range of designs, patterns, and textures, allowing you to create a distinct and personalised atmosphere in your space. Whether you prefer classic elegance or modern whimsy, there's a wallpaper to suit every style. While painting is generally more straightforward and less time-consuming than wallpaper installation, making it accessible to most homeowners as a DIY project.

Paint may need more frequent maintenance and repainting compared to wallpaper. This aspect can be a drawback in terms of long-term cost and effort. However, when your design preferences evolve, it's relatively simple to paint over existing paint. This flexibility makes it easy to adapt your space to changing trends or personal tastes.

High-quality wallpaper is exceptionally durable. It can withstand wear and tear, making it an excellent choice for high-traffic areas in your home and is resistant to scuffs, stains, and fading, maintaining its appearance over time. Wallpaper also has the ability to camouflage minor wall imperfections, such as small cracks or uneven surfaces. The result is a smooth and polished finish that enhances your interior's overall appeal.

Ultimately, your decision should align with your vision for your home and your willingness to invest in both the short-term and long-term aspects of your interior decor. Consider the unique character of your space, your personal style, and the practical requirements when deciding whether to decorate with wallpaper or paint. The goal is to create a home that reflects your personality and brings you joy every day.
