How to Makeover a Room in One Weekend

We’d all like to do work on our homes and make them look amazing, but who has the time? Most people are busy with work all week and have limited time off, so the main window of time when they can get stuff done is the weekend. But the good news is, there are lots of projects you can do in just a couple of days, and you can even makeover a room in one weekend. Here’s how.

Work on the flooring

If you only have a weekend, it’s worth doing the flooring first, to give it time to dry and settle. Installing an epoxy floor Adelaide can be surprisingly quick, especially if you leave it to the professionals. Once this is laid, it makes a huge difference to the room, adding a clean, contemporary room. Simply changing the flooring will make a massive difference, and even if you don’t do anything else, you should change this one thing.

Change some accessories

A mini room makeover is easy if you simply switch the accessories in the room. These little touches make a big difference, such as:

  • Cushions
  • Curtains
  • Decorative items
  • Footstools
  • Lamps

If you’re on a budget, simply swapping these things over will make a big difference. It’s worth doing some shopping online, getting the things delivered in time for your weekend makeover, and then all you have to do is unbox and put them out.

Get the paint out

Whether you paint the walls or even grab some chalk paint and update your furniture, you may be surprised how much difference a lick of paint can make. Preparation is key for a professional look. A little extra time putting down a smooth base and taping neat edges will make a huge difference. The best thing is that painting doesn’t take too long, even a large room can just take a few hours. Newer paints dry quickly between coats, so you can get a second layer on in the same day, and you can find paints with fewer chemicals, so you don’t have paint smell lingering for so long.

Short on time, but sick of your current interior design? Consider putting aside a weekend for a room makeover. Whether it’s a bedroom or living room, or even something more ambitious like a kitchen mini-makeover, you’ll be amazed what you can achieve in just two days if you put your mind to it and use a little imagination.
