Lockdown Home Improvement: 5 Projects You Can Do Around the House During Quarantine

While some people are still called to work during this time, a lot of us are stuck at home without anything productive to do. Or don’t we?

Now might be a good time to make yourself useful at home and get around to working on improving your house with some small projects that you and your family could do.

Identify and plan your bigger projects.

Before getting to work, go around the house and identify which things you can do on your own and which ones you need professional help with. If you plan to tear down walls and make extensions in your Melbourne house or you need bathroom renovations done in Brisbane South, you have to put these things off until the quarantine has been lifted.

Smaller projects, on the other hand, can be done all by yourself if you know how.

Rearrange your furniture.


A simple way of giving your home a much-needed facelift is changing your furniture layout. Moving furniture and decors around will help revitalize your stale and dreary rooms, not to mention keep you occupied at this time. Take note, though, that boredom isn’t the only reason to do this. There are other good reasons to do this regularly.

Replace all dim and busted lights.

Lighting is one of the most central aspects of design. There is a lot that lighting — of lack of — can do for your home. It can make your home warm, cozy, and inviting if you do it right. However, it can also be cold and lifeless if not executed well.

Go through your house and inspect all lighting fixtures. If there are busted bulbs that need replacing and you have some spare lightbulbs laying around, go ahead and replace them. You might also want to clean your lamps to maximize its luminescence.

Fix those holes on your walls.

Those holes in your walls are eyesores. There. We said it. Most folks would just shrug and ignore them since they don’t seem harmful. Or are they?

Walls that have holes in them could be hazardous to you and your family if they cause plumbing and electrical systems to be exposed. Take this time to go around the house and patch up those holes. Not only will they make your walls seem new, but they also provide added protection as well.

Repurpose rooms and areas around your home.

If you’re the type of person who likes going to the gym or you’re allowed to work remotely at home, why don’t you convert areas in your home and repurpose them for certain activities? You can work on making a few installations in your garage or basement and come up with a home gym. Or perhaps you can take an unused area in the house and turn it into your home office.

Don’t waste all the time you have at home now by just chilling and watching Netflix. You no longer have the excuse that you don’t have enough time to work at improving your home. Maximize this time to make your home look better. You’ll thank yourself in the end.
