8 Creative DIY Upgrade to Modernize Your Home


Are you the kind of homeowner that loves a unique space? A modernized house doesn't need to look like everyone else's. If you are creative, you can upgrade your space to match your aesthetic needs. You don't need to settle for what everyone else is doing. 

Coming home to a space that matches your needs can be comforting and relaxing. Even when nothing is particularly wrong, everyone loves a fresh-looking space. What could be more unique than DIY upgrades? 

We all crave well-designed and beautiful homes. However, constant updates and renovations can be costly. Try out these DIY tips to modernize your home without spending much money. 

  1. Reuse Your Old Wall Mirrors

Do not throw out your old wall mirrors even if they are broken. There are many ways to repurpose them and give your house a fresh look. Break them into tiny pieces and create mosaics for your bathroom wall. If you have any poorly-lit areas in your home, the mirror patterns could brighten them up. 

 Old mirror pieces can act as tiles for your fountain or outdoor tables when painted. The mirrors can also be part of your landscape edging. If you have a concrete planter, consider decorating it with mirror shards. 

  1. Customize Your Serveware

Did you know that you can use serving trays and other unique serveware to decorate your home? Whether you have wooden, plastic, or bamboo trays, they can add some warmth to your home. Think of the effect you wish to achieve and decorate accordingly. Your serveware can be both functional and decorative. 

Aside from the different designs available in the market today, you can also opt to customize your serveware to match your style. Lynnliana, a popular name in this space, offers customizable serveware. The beauty of a handcrafted piece based on your liking is that it is unique to you and the style surely matches your home. Gone are the days when you had to serve snacks on boring servewares!

  1. Use Marble Stickers in Your Kitchen

Marble is the Holy Grail of kitchen decoration. It is heat-resistant, durable, and beautiful. It can withstand lots of pressure and gives your kitchen an instant facelift. However, upgrading your kitchen with marble can be expensive. 

Consider using marble stickers on your kitchen hoods, countertops, walls, and fireplaces. The stickers are fairly priced, and they look great. They are easy to clean and can introduce some texture to your space. The contemporary aesthetic is warm, modern, and stylish. 

  1. Include Architectural Interest

If your home lacks architectural interest, there are a few ways to make it more exciting. One of the most exciting ones is to add faux lines to your walls. The columns could make your home more formal when used at the corners. 

If your plain wall has any imperfections, faux columns could hide them. You don't need special carpentry skills to complete this project. With a few pieces of plywood and some power tools, anyone can do it. 

  1. Decorate With Cheese Boards

If you have a large cheese board or breadboard, consider turning it into a piece of art. Small cheese boards also serve the same purpose if you have a small space. The versatility of these boards is amazing. When you aren't using them, hang them as wall art for your kitchen. If you have plain walls, they can introduce texture and a pop of color. 

Fill your wooden serving board with fresh herbs, colorful fruits, and cubed cheese when hosting an event. Pick a unique centerpiece and add some beautiful flowers. If you can, consider working with a theme. Even though cheeseboards are functional, they can be decorative as well. Buying wholesale cheese boards could help you save money. 

  1. Use Resin Coasters

Consider painting on your resin coasters and using them as unique décor pieces. The smooth texture of resin makes painting it very interesting. If anything goes wrong, you can wipe off the paint while it is still wet. Use acrylic paint and a regular paintbrush. 

Use the coasters on your console table or coffee table. If you have dull walls, they can help introduce some character. An epoxy resin serving board could also look great on your walls. 

  1. Create Open Spaces

Modern homes feel open and airy. Open floor plans are ideal, but they aren't always possible. If you cannot afford to tear down walls, there are other ways to open up your home. 

First, use small furniture pieces and push them away from your walls. Paint your large furniture pieces white or off-white to make them seem lighter. 

Mirrors are also great at creating an illusion of openness. Place them opposite your windows to reflect natural light into your space. Proper lighting brings new life into your space. Ensure that every part of your home is evenly lit. 

  1. Deep Clean and Paint

Is decorating with serveware and trying out beautiful designs overwhelming? You can start with a deep clean, and fresh coat of paint. Modern homes aren't reliant on traditional color schemes. You don't need to stick with boring greys or whites. Instead, experiment with whatever matches your style. 

Whether you go for earth tones or a brilliant white, consider painting an accent wall with a pop of color. If your home doesn't need new paint, you can simply touch up on the trim or ceiling. If you have older furniture pieces, consider painting them as well. A deep clean should help you get rid of clutter. It makes your home feel airier. 


If you have ever conducted a renovation, you know how expensive it can be. In addition, generic décor pieces can be boring. They do not represent your personality and give your home no character. 

Luckily, you don't have to settle. You can improvise and modernize your home with minimal trouble. Some of the most exciting things to try out include decorating your breakfast trays, painting, and reusing old mirrors.
