Just like you update your clothes or hairdo from time to time, your home could do with a little makeover sometimes too. (Rawpixel pic)

After being at home for more than two months due to restrictions in movement because of Covid-19, most have had a chance to take a good look around the house and maybe noticed small jobs and repairs that need work.

Or maybe you’ve just realised how bored you are with the current look and feel a makeover of sorts is in order.

Don’t know where to begin? Here are some suggestions to get your creative juices flowing.

1. Paint job

A lick of paint can make a world of difference. Try a few colours out first and see what best suits the room. (Rawpixel pic)

You can colour your walls bold and striking with a fiery red, or maybe sunshine yellow to lift the mood.

Bring nature inside with sky blue or mossy green walls, which are both aesthetically pleasing and soothe the eye.

Do not be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. After all, there’s nothing to lose. If you don’t like the colour, just paint over it with another hue.

2. Cabinetry

Create a space to either store or display pretty decoratives. (Rawpixel pic)

Many would have spent quarantine time shopping online and stocking up on exclusive tableware, pretty decorative items, clothing and shoes at irresistible prices – that’s totally understandable.

New cupboards or a nice cabinet would be a perfect place to store these precious gems rather than leaving them littered about the house.

Besides being practical as storage, cabinets can give a room a whole new look and feel besides being a fashion statement in itself – so choose wisely.

3. Painting a feature wall

Everyone has gone a little creative during the restricted movement period, making cooking videos, offering house cleaning hacks and easy DIY projects to do at home.

Ever considered creating a feature wall for a signature background for your videos?

4. House cleaning

A clean and neat house will definitely give off a different vibe. Imagine being in a house that is organised, where you can easily find the things you need without launching into a frantic search involving the entire family.

And a good cleaning will reduce the opportunity for germs or bacteria to breed in your home.

5. Sofa cleaning

It’s time to give that sofa the TLC it rightly deserves. Just like everything else in the house, the sofa is an ideal home for germs and bacteria to flourish to their heart’s content, especially now when family members are spending a lot of time watching TV, working on their laptops, napping or snacking on the couch.

Crumbs on the sofa is not the only concern, but the germs living in it as well. Get it cleaned regularly so you will not have to sit with germs again.
