Home Improvements I Want To Do

Posted in Lifestyle

When you have your own property the desire to go all out with home improvements and DIY is hard to miss and since moving into my flat I’ve felt that way. Admittedly it’s my dad who goes ahead with all the DIY and things but the thoughts come from my mind. With just a few rooms (and no garden) there’s only so much I can do but I’ve been lucky enough to have my kitchen tiled and to get new carpets within the 3 and a half years I’ve been there. Here are a few home improvements I’d love to have done.

Add some shelving in my spare room

I already have plenty of storage but since my Pop Vinyl collection started getting a little out of hand I need somewhere to display all my characters so I definitely think I need some sort of shelving. I don’t quite know what will work best in the room but something needs to be done.

Painting my main living space

As a new build when I moved in all of the walls were white and over time I added a statement wall of paper into both of the bedrooms but nothing was done in my main room which is an open plan kitchen/ living area. I have loads of things up on my walls but I think I need a splash of colour on one of the walls, perhaps the small one behind my TV as I think it will make the place feel a bit more homely. Dulux paint is always the first place I turn to because of the sheer amount of colours they have.

Create more internal storage in my cupboards

I have massive cupboards as you walk into my flat which houses my washing machine, boiler and then a whole load of crap such as suitcases, my hoover etc. Now I know there’s definitely a better way of storing everything and maximizing how much space I have in the cupboard so I want to come up with some of storage plan/ shelving etc to ensure I am making the most out of the space and can fix as much in it as possible.

What small home improvements would you love to do?

  • I’d love more shelving in my room but my walls are mostly plasterboard stud walls so there’s nothing that would hold the weight 🙁

  • I really need to declutter, my house looks like a toy shop exploded!

  • Cassandra Mayers

    Sorting my home is so hard work. So many walls that shelves cant be put up on. We live in a flat you see.

  • Having shelving in my current place has been a revelation! I’m still in rentals, so storage and shelving etc is the luck of the draw depending on what the landlords have done. The shelving I have in this place has been so useful. All those bits and pieces I haven’t really known where to put before suddenly have a home! x

    I really need to add some shelves, a big mirror and would love to create a need bedroom style! Love this post!

    I always put shelving up in all rooms, I think shelves are just so handy for everything! Bit worried that when I go to uni I won’t have many at all, going to have to improvise and buy some free standing ones!
