Buy a Super Rug

Find a rug that you love and get it. You will love it forever, and it will keep your feet warm whilst adding an edgy, interesting look to your space. Try a bold color or pattern that you would normally avoid as you were worried what guests might think. Pick the one that you love, for you, and you will probably see them popping up in all your friends’ houses the following year.

Towel Rack Radiator

Getting a heated towel radiator for your bathroom will leave you feeling like the ruler of the world. Get them in a load of different styles and designs from the colorful to the vintage. These towel rack radiators will improve your quality of life no end. Not only will they warm and dry your towels, but they also heat your bathroom. Lay in your bath for as long as you like with a towel radiator the worry of getting cold when you get out is eradicated.

Tile a Wall

Find your most well-lit room and choose some beautiful tiles. They don’t have to match. Go crazy on the design. Whatever suits your personality. Get a tiling kit. You can get them quite cheaply off Amazon. And get tiling! It is a really fun way to get creative on your house improvements, and guests will love it.

Style up your Furniture

Get a drill and some wood and add some extra bits onto your furniture. Even a lick of paint can make all the difference.

  • Designing a lazy Susan for your dinner table can be a great way of styling up your dining room.
  • Add extra shelves and partitions into bookcases and paint them a different color to the rest of the piece.
  • Paint the legs of your chairs and tables to give them an edgy look.
  • Repurpose vases by adding led lights and turn coffee tables into super centerpieces by adding tiles.

Cork Board Dart Board

Everyone has corks lying around, especially after this year. No one knows what to do with them, some make notice boards, but they don’t look great. Making your own dartboard can be a great way to repurpose those corks. Watch a video tutorial to find out how.

Reinvest that furlough money wisely and support small businesses in your area, whilst at the same time getting all you need to make your home have that much-needed pizzazz.
