Without spending a pretty penny: DIY Techniques for a Stylish Space

If you’ve spent hours browsing Pinterest and looking at amazing homes but don’t want to spend a pretty penny, we’re here for you. We’re sharing some clever tips to transform your home and elevate your mood.

Use creative or even daring wallpapers

The easiest way to change any space is by finding a surprising wallpaper. If your wall is white, consider adding a world map to pin your next travels. If your space is ample, you can transform it with a panoramic wallpaper of an exotic garden filled with waterlilies floating on a lake, interspersed with stylised reflections of lush vegetation.

Be creative with your wallpaper. You can add it to your living room, bedroom, or even kitchen as a backsplash. Choose a wallpaper with a vinyl coating to withstand moisture, heat, and splatters and create a stunning setting you will love spending time in. 

Spray-paint your kitchen cabinets

By painting your kitchen cabinets, you create a noticeable change without spending a lot of time and money on it. 

Over time, cabinets can look worn and ugly. Sometimes, it’s a matter of wanting a change that is heftier than buying a couple of new jars or rearranging some furniture as tastes and styles change.

If you can’t spray-paint your kitchen cabinets yourself, we can help. At Sprayworks UK, not only do we specialise in external kitchen respraying, but internal too. We are equipped with the highest quality paint to provide outstanding kitchen spraying service. This includes all areas of kitchen furniture, such as kitchen cabinets, worktops, doors, and tiles. Combined with the latest spraying technology and techniques, we will have your kitchen looking brand new in just a few days.

DIY wood panelling

Wall panelling adds dimension, texture, and character to a room. It is a fairly easy and budget-friendly DIY project The most cost-effective way to panel a wall is to buy wooden frames, paint them the colour of your wall, and attach them without nails with epoxy glue. It’s just so easy and creative!

DIY Furniture Makeovers

Instead of breaking the bank on new furniture, why not breathe new life into your existing pieces? A simple makeover with a fresh coat of paint, updated hardware, or reupholstering can work wonders. Armed with a dash of creativity and some DIY skills, you can effortlessly turn tired furniture into eye-catching statement pieces that enhance the ambience of your space.

Installing brand-new fitted furniture is extremely expensive and not to mention time consuming, so painting your furniture is the best option. If you don’t have the time to spray-paint your statement pieces, we can give them a new lease of life. With our furniture spraying services in Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Coventry, Nottingham, and other regions across the Midlands, you’re able to save yourself hundreds and achieve an unbelievable transformation.

Put your artwork on display

Don’t underestimate the power of your artwork. Get creative with paints, stencils, fabric scraps, or even old magazines to create one-of-a-kind pieces that reflect your style and interests. Not only is DIY artwork a budget-friendly option, but it also allows you to infuse your space with your own personal touch.

Experiment with bold colours, intricate patterns, or abstract designs to evoke emotion and captivate the eye. Incorporate meaningful motifs, quotes, or symbols that speak to your values and experiences, infusing your space with layers of depth and significance. 

As you unleash your creativity onto canvas, paper, or fabric, you not only elevate your home’s aesthetic appeal but also imbue it with a sense of authenticity and warmth that can’t be replicated. So gather your art supplies, and let your artwork become the soulful centrepiece of your stylish sanctuary.

Creative Lighting

Designing your own unique lighting fixtures allows you to infuse your space with personalised charm and character.  Transform ordinary items like mason jars or old wine bottles into stylish pendant lights or hanging tea light holders for a touch of rustic elegance. Experiment with DIY paper lanterns or branch chandeliers to bring a sense of whimsy and natural beauty into your home. 

The Bottom Line

With the prices of everything going up, I’ve been finding more creative ways to design spaces that are super budget-friendly. So roll up your sleeves, gather your supplies, and get ready to light up your space with creativity and flair. If you need help, at Sprayworks, we are here for all your spray painting needs.
