If you are going stir-crazy staying inside, you are not alone. Millions of people around the world are doing their part to keep CoVid19 from spreading, and being stuck at home is not something we are used to. That said, it is the perfect time to carry out some projects that may have been on the agenda for years. After all, Isaac Newton discovered gravity while in quarantine!
Of course, your options are going to be limited, as you will have a hard time getting new supplies for DIY room decor during a potential lockdown. However, there are certain rooms you can focus on that will take minimal resources but maximum creativity. It’s what us DIYers live for.
Think about renovating the following 3 rooms while staying home.
- Your children’s bedrooms
Are you stuck at home with children? If so, you have the biggest challenge of all, considering you have to find a way to keep them from getting bored. This is a great opportunity to get them involved in a DIY project. What better place to start than their bedrooms?
The best part of decorating a child’s bedroom is that you are not as limited thematically. You can let your imagination run wild and take your child’s ideas very seriously as you find a way to create an interior that they love. The finishings don’t need to be perfect and you do not have to spend tons of money on fancy materials. On the contrary, children are much happier spending time in a bedroom that expresses their own creativity than a modern idea of what is chic.
- Your office
Do you need to work from home for the next few weeks? Those who usually work from home understand the importance of having an office that drives you creatively. You should think of your office as a kind of vision board, with expressions of your goals and dreams making up the decor.
It is another perfect space for DIY projects, especially if you want to upcycle. Use some of your old possessions to craft new designs that combine the nostalgic with the aspirational. You want a space in which you feel immediately orientated, knowing where you came from and where you are going.
- The guest bedroom
Because you are stuck inside, the last thing you need is a home that is permeated with fumes from paints and glues. For this reason, you may be considering putting off any larger-scale DIY projects for later, while working on smaller decor designs. However, this really is an opportunity that you want to take advantage of, without having to worry about your health.
The solution may be to renovate your guest bedroom. Unless you already have guests sticking it out with you, this room is going to stay vacant for a while. Why not use it as your personal palette? Paint those walls with interesting designs. Create crafty furniture that your future guests will love.
Spending time at home is an opportunity to take on some exciting DIY projects. Don’t let this opportunity go to waste!
