With coronavirus cases increasing by the day, many people are staying at home. With schools and businesses all closed, we are sure your schedule is mostly free these days. You may be in the dumps about it, but let this be the opportunity to complete all your home projects. The silver lining during these hard times is that now you have all the time in the world to work on the DIY projects that you have been meaning to carry out for months.

The best part about DIY projects is that you can make it a family activity so that everyone can be involved in giving the house a new look. So, if you have more time on your hand than you can handle, here are a few DIY projects that’ll make sure the remaining days of quarantine pass easily. Gather all your supplies, be it peel and stick caulk or empty cardboard boxes that you won’t let anyone throw away,  and let’s get started.

Paint the Bathroom

Nowadays, your bathroom may be the only place you can find some peace and quiet so let’s start from here. The dated cabinets won’t do anymore, and you have to give them a much-needed makeover. A bit of paint is all you need to give your bathroom cabinets a new lease on life. You can make them truly standout with a paint job and if you have the right material, you can even change the handles. Make sure you choose a color that goes with the theme of your bathroom and you’ll be astonished at the great results this will provide. You can also use self adhesive backsplash to give them a modern look.

Next up is the bathtub. Take an inventory of all the materials you have at home and use them to give your bathtub a new and refined look. Using peel and stick caulk is the best way to make this part of your bathroom look more refined, but you can also go for a simple paintjob. If you have some tile stick-on apply them on the wall beside the bathtub for a distinguished feel.

You can also update your vanity and all you’ll need for that is some concrete. Just apply some concrete on the existing and outdated vanity for a DIY project that’ll make you proud of yourself. It does take a bit of work because you have to perfect the technique to get the desired look. You can add designs on it and make sure you use sandpaper to level the surface. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll wonder why you never thought of it before. And make sure you add a flexible plastic edge trim to make the vanity safer.

Improve Window Trims

The next project you can take on is improving the window trims. It does take a bit longer, but it’s definitely worth all your efforts. Most people think that only a contractor can help them complete this project but once you get started you’ll realize how easy it is to handle it on your own.

There are many things you can do to improve your window trims so let’s start with the easiest one. Paint them. Just take a color that enhances the theme of the room and get working. This small addition to the room will make such a difference that it will leave you spell bound. If you have pieces of wood lying around and you’re good with your hands, you can easily make some decorative pediments or crossheads to draw attention to your windows. Complete the look with self adhesive vinyl trim strips and you’ll be impressed with the final look.

Even if you’re looking for ideas to add style to the exterior of your house, you can make use of the decorative shutters that have been sitting in the corner of the garage for years. Just paint or stain them to complement your home’s exterior. This is a sure way to add depth to the windows and give them a more traditional look.

Add Accents to Doors

Your house doors may be old, but they don’t have to look outdated anymore. You can easily give them a modern twist by adding accents. Adding something as simple as new decorative handles can give their appearance a significant boost, and we guarantee that you’ll love the final look.

Wallpaper is a great material to help you transform your house doors. That’s right! You can use the wallpaper to create a pattern on your simple doors and bring a splash of color to any room. Wallpaper is easy to use. Just stick it in place and you’ll have brought about a change without even taking the door off its hinges. If you have some stencils lying around, use them to paint patterns on the doors. The right patterns will add a classy touch to the whole house and an exotic elegance that’ll be hard to miss.

If you have any mould trimmings, they’ll go perfectly with your house doors. The trimming techniques you learnt for windows can also be applied here. You can easily use refurbished wood for trimmings and even though it will give them an unconventional look, you can be sure that they will highlight the architectural features of your home.

So, there you have it. These are just a few easy DIY home projects that will help you pass your time easily. Don’t spend this time thinking about the woes of the world. Make use of flexible plastic edge trim and caulk and give your home a makeover that’ll be worth relishing. Spend your time wisely, use the materials that you have and invest time in DIY projects that pay off well in the long run too.
