3 Easy Ways for You to Zest Up Your Home

by newsy siso on May 25, 2018

Not every house begs for a renovation. There is nothing wrong with classic looks or themed homes. As much as trends come and go, you cannot deny that a put-together look, no matter how ‘dated’, is not an issue. You can rock mid-century modern or something more Victorian, the problem lies in how well you preserve the image you want.

Heavy drills, Nela plastering trowels, and buckets of paint may seem overwhelming. However, not every home-improvement should be a full-blown project. Focus on fixing elements that are out of place or aspects that have not aged well. If you aren’t satisfied after that, you can probably look into more intense home renovation.       

Do not neglect your yard

The yard, whether front or back, may seem detached from your home. It is a separate space and you don’t necessarily spend as much time there as you do indoors. This is why some homes feel ‘off’. Just because the yard is a separate space doesn’t mean it isn’t a part of your home. Whatever concept you have indoors, extend it towards the exterior of your house, yard included.

You may opt to match the plants according to your theme; for classic homes, roses and carnations might be a good pick. If you are going for something more tropical, add a palm tree and hibiscus. When weather and climate conditions do not give you leeway in your gardening options, then consider matching colours that complement well with the exterior paint job.

Do change your canvas

Having texture on walls is a style in itself. If your interior looks too dated, consider changing the wall. Get your Nela plastering trowels and get started on plastering your walls. While plastering jobs are typically handled by tradesmen, you can DIY it as well. Get a Nela trowel and hawk. Prep your wall and work in small sections. Remember that to have a good plastering job you need to have a clean wall and clean tools. After you finish plastering your wall, add a fresh coat of paint and you are good to go. Changing up the texture is as impactful as changing your wall colour.

Do not keep dated but serviceable tiles

Bathrooms are often neglected, you might have picked out your tile just to match colours, but have you considered how it matches the overall theme of your house? Remember the two rooms that sell a home are the kitchen and the bathroom. Your Nela trowels can also be used for attaching your new tiles.

In true DIY fashion, keep your old tiles and use them for a later project perhaps a mosaic accent wall or to add a pop of colour to your yard. 

There are many ways you can zest up your home without making it a major project. It is all about pinpointing what you want your space to say and identifying the areas that don’t speak the same language.
