Self-Quarantine Made Easy
Still stuck inside? Don’t stress it, we have a list of ideas to keep extroverts, introverts and even ambiverts busy. These home improvement projects and ideas are the perfect opportunity for some DIY fun while staying safe and staying inside.
1. Add Storage:
Everyone needs more storage and while you may not have additional storage cupboards available, you can create storage space by recycling old Kleenex or shoe boxes. This is also a quick and fun way to do arts and crafts with kids!
2. Create a Recharge Area:
Creating a designated space for belongings can help refresh a space. With many electronic devices shared by multiple people, cables get lost or tangled!
Creating a recharge area will allow for dedicated electronics, such as phones or Apple watches to be placed at the end of the day. Gather up all the cables and see which ones double up, you can then use a dedicated space to charge all of your electronic devices at the same time, in a clean and efficient way.
3. Refresh Your Yard:
How is your yard looking? Finding time to refresh your backyard on weekends can be hard with last-minute plans, weather changes and sports. Re-pot some plants, pull out some weeds or repaint a bench. By doing a quick revamp of the yard, you get the benefits of fresh air and your yard looking amazing.
4. Get A Virtual Consultation:
Some home improvements can’t be achieved without the help of a professional. In your days at home, get as many quotes as you can online, talk to providers to get a feel of what you want to be doing as your next big home improvement.
5. Patch holes:
With kids or the wear and tear of everyday life, a few dings would have happened along the way! Stay inside and patch a few holes, a repaint job may be for a later date, but prep work is just as important!
6. Stairway to Heaven
Stairways are often forgotten.The stairs usually connect the living area and bedrooms, show them some love by painting them or laying down new carpeting.
7. Re-stain Your Wood:
Re-staining the deck, flooring, or kitchen cabinets is another job that can be marked off your DIY projects list if you’re at home for a long time. Make the most out of your staycation by re-staining your wood.
8. Redecorate Your Home
Color schemes, themes and what’s ‘in’ is always changing so consider rearranging or redecorating your home. A little bit of shuffling around can change the whole feel of your home. Don’t be scared of color! Set aside decor that adds a splash of color or the final touch to pull everything together.
9. Chalkboard Paint:
Pick a wall that you can cover with chalkboard paint. Wait a few hours and have fun with art! The whole family will love it!
10. Plan Plan and Plan:
Once you have all the quotes you need, plan when and how you will be completing your next home improvement. Some home improvements might be delayed because of current events.
