In this modern world, most families have both parents at work while the children are in school. Of course, when the kids are still young and unable to take care of themselves, many mums step in and do the job of caring for them at home.
Some mums juggle work from home, attending to their young ones while their partner is at work or even completely on their own. Children with stay-at-home mums are quite lucky. They have someone to attends to their every need, making sure that everything is running smoothly at home.
If you are a stay-at-home mum who loves to keep the house looking well-kept and presentable or a working mum with a bit of free time, there are lots of ways to get some of that decor done through DIY projects while you are home. These projects keep you happily busy during your downtime and can be quite fulfilling when you come up with something that adds beauty to your home.
Here are some DIY decorating tips you could try.
DIY fabric decor
Fabric is one of the best materials you can make use of when decorating your home. There are so many projects you can try making use of fabric material that can enhance the look of your home, from the living room to the kitchen, to the bedrooms. Your bathroom can even have its own makeover.
The great thing about fabric is it comes in such a wide variety of patterns, colours, and textures to suit your every need. You can make your kitchen table look extra special with a wipe-clean , use linen fabric to make curtains, or find material with pretty designs for throw pillow covers. You can also get a lot of inspiration from designers and creative homemakers that use linen fabric in the UK to beautify a home.
Plants for decor
Whether you grow them yourself or love buying flowers and greenery, plants are such a beautiful addition to any room of your home. Apart from enhancing the appearance of rooms, they are also very helpful in purifying the air you breathe in. This means that while you are decorating your home, you are also providing a healthier atmosphere for you and your family.
If you are into arts and crafts, this is one hobby you can get into. Decoupage can be used on just about any surface, and you can create beautiful decor for your home. You can even transform wooden tables, benches, dressers, and other furnishings into charming works of art.
Bowls, boxes, and other simple items you have at home can become beautiful decorative pieces to adorn your living room, bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom. Your children will also enjoy helping you with this hobby and come up with art pieces of their own.
Your home can be as lovely as you want it to be. The great thing about it is that you are there to be on top of it. Use your creativity to come up with decorating ideas to make your house a place that everyone always looks forward to coming home to.
I'm a mum in my early 30s with over 15 years of childcare experience working as a private nanny, babysitter and a few years as a nursery teacher. Now I've got my own family too! I love finding great products for mums and kids.
