As you start small and start to build up your projects, knowledge and expertise you can then look to take on bigger projects like trying DIY Conservatories. You can transform your home right in front of your very eyes.

How to Wallpaper a Wall 

Wallpaper may provide colour and design in a sophisticated or energising way that paint cannot always equal. It may give texture to your area and is available in a number of materials. Today's prepasted sheets make it easier to apply your DIY d├ęcor. Simply measure the height and width of each wall and multiply those measurements to determine the square footage of the wall.

Backsplash Tile 

Backsplashes have a utilitarian purpose—after all, they protect your walls from food stains—but they also serve a beautiful function. There are several tile colours, sizes, and shapes to pick from for a backsplash. After you've chosen your tiles, measure the area and note the starting point. To attach the bottom row to the wall, use tile mastic. Continue by inserting spacers. Around electrical outlets, you may need to score and cut tile. The following day, grout the tile using a rubber float. Wipe away any excess grout once it has set for an hour.

Try Adding Vinyl Floors

Vinyl flooring is available in a variety of configurations, including rolls, "tiles," and planks. Any variant makes an excellent surface, especially in spaces with high moisture levels, such as kitchens. 

Vinyl plank flooring is simple to cut, does not require subfloor bonding, and snaps together for a tight fit. Gather the necessary equipment, remove baseboards and moulding, carefully measure, ensure the floor is level, and start laying down your floor. Cut to fit floor ducts and door frames with a utility knife. Tiles are laid in a similar manner. To adhere to the floor, rolls of flooring must be carefully unrolled a few feet at a time, removing the backing as you go.

Reupholster Used Furniture 

Although old furniture typically has amazing "bones" or nice detail, the fabric may be faded or plain antiquated. Reupholstering furniture can extend its life. 

A simple chair seat can be easily recovered. Measure the cushion to calculate how much fabric is needed; leave a few inches all around to fold over the bottom of the seat. Take the seat out of the chair. If you need to make repairs, add new cushioning, or refinish the chair, now is the time.
