Decorating Ideas That Take Less than Two Hours

~ This is a featured post ~

If you like DIY but are short on time, this post is ideal for you. Below are a few decorating projects you can usually complete from start to finish in under an hour.

Customised artwork for your walls
The right pictures can make a huge difference to how a room looks. It is a fast way to give your home a fresh look. Modern print firms make affordable for you to produce customised artwork for your walls.

It is now really easy to print your own photos onto a canvas background. All you need to do is to find a good high-resolution image, crop it to your liking and send it to the print firm. Within a week or two you will receive your print in the frame you have chosen. All you need to do now is hang it on your wall, which normally takes less than half an hour.

Hang new doors
Hanging a new door is something you can easily do in less than an hour provided you choose the right kind. The hinges and latch need to be positioned in the same way to enable you to swap one door for another quickly.

Shelve out an alcove
If you need more storage and are lucky enough to have an alcove next to your fireplace you can potentially shelve it out in under an hour. The trick is to buy the shelves pre-cut to size and use an adjustable shelving system. Doing this means that you do not have to install brackets for every single shelf which will save you a lot of time.

Paint a wall
Provided you are organised and use rollers, you can usually paint a wall in an hour or two. If you are really short of time, doing one wall each evening is actually a good way to get the decorating done.

Put down new flooring
If you have a small room that needs new flooring provided you choose the right materials you can often do it in less than an hour. Vinyl flooring or carpet is surprisingly easy to lay once you get the hang of it. Provided there are not too many fiddly bits you can also lay new laminate flooring in just a couple of hours.

Draft proofing
Using draft proofing tape you can improve the seal on a window or door in about half an hour. It is a simple task that will make your room far warmer and potentially save you a lot of money.

Poco a poco gets you there
For most home improvement tasks the little by little approach is extremely effective. Often, doing an hour or two each evening for a week is enough to get a small room fully decorated.

You just need to be organised. Ideally, you want to be able to leave your tools out, so that you do not have to waste half an hour setting things up to start the task.
