Painting the walls is one of the easiest, cheapest and most effective ways to transform a room.

You can easily do this yourself and with a few basic items, including paint, brushes and rollers and tarp to cover the floor.
Rearrange the Furniture
Following this, one free way to improve your home which can make a surprising amount of difference is simply rearranging the furniture. This will give you a completely different viewpoint of the room and you might even find a way to make it more practical and/or spacious.
New storage is another simply DIY project but one that can make a big difference, especially if your home is often cluttered. Having somewhere to neatly store various items can improve the look and feel of the room and increase floor space as well as make it much easier to find what you are looking for. Shelving is a particularly good option as it allows you to make use of the walls, proudly display items and have easy access to them. It is also a DIY project that is not too challenging as you can create your own shelving units from wood using a circular saw, which will help to create a rustic look.
It is amazing the impact that lighting can have on interior design yet an area that many homeowners shy away from. It is all about experimentation when it comes to interior lighting and combining the 3 types of lighting: ambient, task and accent. You could also opt for small touches like LED lighting under shelves and inside cupboards for a luxury, professional look. Smart lighting is also worth considering as this gives you great control, allows you to change lighting styles and can also help to lower your energy bill.
These are just a few DIY improvements that you can try which are easy enough to do and can make a big difference to your home. DIY can be good fun and high-ly rewarding, plus it is a chance to upgrade your living space and this could have a big impact on your life.
