5 Quick and Inexpensive DIY Home Upgrades for the Busy Professional

So much to do, so little time—if you can relate to this, and your daily schedules are always jam-packed, that shouldn’t be an excuse not to make time for some interior upgrades in your living space.

Yes, home renovation and improvement projects are usually expensive and time-consuming, but there are some upgrades that you can do without investing much time and money to make your place a cozier and better place to live in.

Hang some artworks on the wall

Got some paintings and art pieces gathering dust somewhere at home? Put them to good use by adorning them to your walls. This will add some personality and character to your home’s interior. If you have walls painted in neutral colors, then go for vibrant artworks that will certainly stand out.

Mount shelves

If you’re not into art, there’s an alternative way to jazz up your plain walls: add some shelves that are both decorative and functional, as you can also use them for storage.

Get rid of clutter

Because we’re so preoccupied with the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, we tend to collect more stuff at home that we don’t actually need and just take up valuable space. Take away all the clutter, and see the difference it makes to the ambiance of your home.

Add some greens

Give your home a calming ambiance by placing some potted indoor plants in key areas such as the center table and beside the couch and by the bedroom window. Houseplants also do double-duty of purifying the air in your home.

Create a focal point

You know what makes a home interior dull and boring? Every corner and area looking the same. When you devote a space for making a focal point (such as a big vintage furniture or mirror) at any area of your home, your living space will look more inviting to your future guests.
