Simple and Creative Ways to Improve Your Home

Getting tired of the same four walls?

We’re all spending a considerable amount of time in our homes at the moment, and that can be a strain on our mental health, so there has never been a more important time to get creative! Making this your new project will inject a bit of life back into your home and keep you proactive.

Maybe you recently noticed that the furniture is fraying on its sides, the lounge could use a new lick of paint, or your home décor is a little out of fashion. Don’t panic! Hochanda are the home crafts, hobbies and arts, and they have a few ideas on how you can give your home a bit of a refresh…


Whilst touching up interior walls is one of the most popular and effective ways to transform your home, Hochanda wants you to embrace your creative side even more and think outside the box. How about painting a picture to hang on your wall? Creating your own work of art is something to be very proud of and getting to see it every day is surely going to add an extra bit of positivity to your life! You could even take this a step further, painting a mural on your wall is also a wonderful way to add a whole new dimension to your home and can certainly be a fun and largely rewarding project to work on!

Cushion Making

Giving your living room a makeover doesn’t need to be costly, sometimes it’s the little steps that make a big difference. Hochanda recommend you trying to make your own cushion covers – not only is it quick and easy, but they are guaranteed to brighten up any room they find themselves in, especially as you can personalise them! All you need is some fabric (the more colourful, the better!), a cushion pad, pins and scissors. Looking for sewing essentials? Click here to learn more.
