Are you looking for an Instagram-worthy home redecoration project you can execute while the Covid-19 circuit breaker measures last in Singapore? You’re in luck! We have numerous suggestions for you to test out and work on without breaking the social distancing rules. Let’s get started.
You don’t need to be a recognised artist to create a bit of fine art for your home.
Get started with some Instagram and Pinterest research – you’ll come across dozens of ideas that are incredibly easy to execute. Chances are that you already have the required materials and you wouldn’t need to leave your home to get art supplies.
From a simple pencil sketch to a collage or a paint splatter artwork – these are just a few of the ideas to explore.
If you’re stuck at home with kids, you can definitely get youngsters engaged in the project. Everybody will have a bit of family fun and the final outcome will possess both artistic value and emotional appeal.
Do a Basic Decluttering Project
Few people realise how great of an impact decluttering can have on the appearance of their interior space.
Do you have some time off? Are you feeling bored? The time has come to sort through all of those things that have been collecting dust until you decide what to do with them.
Go room by room and check out all of the belongings, the accessories, the home décor items, utensils and even your clothes. Create three piles – items to keep, items to donate or gift and items to throw away.
The moment you get rid of needless belongings is the moment you actually see how spacious and exciting your interior space is. Getting rid of cheap, damaged or mismatched items will also give you an opportunity to introduce some new elements you love.
Whether you want to buy art online or you’re looking for furniture and home décor items, such opportunities abound.
Many designers, furniture shops and art galleries offer online delivery to your doorstep. It’s simply up to you to decide how much you want to spend on the new purchase and what type of item is going to have the biggest impact on your living space.
Take Good Care of Your Plants
Enjoying the outdoor fully isn’t possible at a time when the world is trying to prevent a pandemic. Fortunately, you can bring the outdoor in and display it proudly.
Have you been neglecting your house plants? The moment has come to take good care of those.
Re-potting your plants (get some really cool plant containers when doing the online shopping mentioned above) is one of the easiest ways to make them “feel” better and flourish. You can also create an entire green corner in the living room. Large pots on the floor and a couple of shelves for hanging plants can do miracles for the transformation of your living room into a natural haven.
To give the corner a complete appearance, add a couple of beautiful pebbles, some seashells or snail shells. If you have kids, chances are that you have lots of those natural supplies around.
A brand new paint job can have a tremendous transformative effect on your living space.
This is an easy DIY project you can execute over the course of just one day. All you have to do is select the right paint colour and buy a couple of brushes, as well as protective plastic wrap online.
You can create one brightly coloured accent wall while all of the other tones remain subdued. You can also have a bit of fun with textures and design patterns. Again – internet can provide loads of inspirations. There are so many creative tutorials on repainting walls that you’ll find it difficult to pick just one project to execute.
Create Your Own Personal Corner
Social distancing will give you a lot of time to spend by yourself.
It’s a good idea to create a little nook just for yourself. Dedicate that space to some of your favourite activities like reading, drawing, doing crossword puzzles or watching a film.
A cosy chair, a few pillows and a fluffy blanket are the perfect starting pieces. If you’re a reader, you can also consider the addition of a standing light that will illuminate your space in the best possible way.
An ottoman, a beautiful rug and a solid surface for snacks and beverages will make your little corner complete.
This is another pretty simple and tremendously impactful project you can execute without leaving the home and without spending any money.
Rearranging the furniture in a room can open up a lot of space and completely overhaul the décor as well as improve your Feng Shui.
The project can be carried out to create more floor space for kids or for at-home exercises, to make better use of natural light or to ensure natural separation of functional areas in an open-space flat.
These are just a few home interior design projects you can carry out yourself while on lockdown. Use your creativity and think about your goals to conceptualise other home décor changes.
