House Projects to Keep You Busy During Quarantine

Written by: Keith Thornton

During these trying times, it can be easy to get bored when you are trapped at home. Let's make that time more productive and upgrade the look and feel of your house at the same time? Here are 7 DIY projects that anyone can do while stuck at home.

Paint a Room

There is no better way to quickly improve a room's look than to apply a new coat of paint. Choose a fun color from your local hardware store and within a few hours, your room looks as good as new. Be sure to use a drop cloth and painters tape to get clean lines when painting against trim. 

 

Update Wall Treatments

Whether you are updating old wallpaper or creating a new focal point in your home, updating the wall treatments can add style and value to your home. Shiplap, reclaimed wood, decorative wallpaper, and wainscoting are all great options that can quickly spice up any room.

 

Rearrange Furniture

One of the simpler things you can do to make a room feel new is to simply rearrange your furniture. Whether you are flipping the tv wall in your living room or changing the bed wall in your bedroom, slightly changing your room layout can drastically alter the flow of your space. 

 

Update Wall Artwork

Through the many years of living in your home, it's simple to keep the same pictures up without much thought of updating them. Updating your artwork can add some variety to a room and create a focal point in your space when guests come over. 

 

Change Light Fixtures

Light fixtures can add a ton of character to a room and are relatively simple to change. Whether you add a fun chandelier to your dining room or install a new ceiling fixture in a bedroom, new fixtures can dramatically improve the style of any room.

 

Replace Area Rugs

With the popularity of hardwood and laminate flooring as high as it is, area rugs have become a great option to add coziness and comfort to a room. In many cases, the rug can be the focal point of the room and a great conversation starter for guests. 

 

Add House Plants

When stuck inside, bringing the outdoors inside can be one of the best ways to cope. Adding potted plants to a room can provide a splash of color and nature to the room and improve the look and feel instantly. If you don't have a green thumb, fake plants can also look good with no maintenance.
