If you want to refresh your home or garden, sometimes the small changes can make a huge difference.
You’d be amazed how simple and more affordable D.I.Y. can be, and how much it can add value to your home.
If you need some inspiration, Bunnings can help with heaps of ideas, advice and a whole range of products to help you get the job done yourself.
Create a New Look with Paint
A coat of paint is one of the easiest ways to freshen up a home. Simply painting your interior walls a lighter colour can make small rooms seem bigger and brighter.
And paint isn’t just for the walls. Rather than replace old tiles in your kitchen or bathroom, you can give them a new lease of life with a lick of tile paint. Specifically designed for coating ceramic, porcelain and glass tiles, tile paint is a great way to revive the look and won’t flake off over time.
Paint can also protect your metal gates and fences from rusting and flaking. You can make them look as good as new with a coat or two of rust guard paint.
Quick Kitchen Renovations
Renovating your kitchen doesn’t have to be a big expensive job. With a few simple cosmetic changes you can make a huge impact.
Tired old laminate kitchen cabinets or bench tops can be made to look brand new again with a coat of paint. Or, you could instantly modernise your kitchen by replacing your tiles with a new splashback.
Changing the cupboard door handles and taps is another simple and cost effective way to update your kitchen. Even replacing cabinet doors won’t cost a fortune. You’ll get the look of a brand new kitchen for a fraction of the cost.
New flooring can completely change the look and feel of your kitchen. There are plenty of options including ceramic, terracotta or porcelain tiles, laminate, wood or vinyl.
If you’re thinking about a complete kitchen makeover, you can save a lot of money by doing it yourself. Bunnings In-home Kitchen Consultant service can help you plan and create your kitchen renovation or you can try it yourself with the Bunnings 3D kitchen planner.

Simple Ideas for Your Garden
There are so many ways to tidy up your garden. Garden edging is great for making your garden look tidier and giving definition between the lawn and garden beds.
If you have a smaller space to work with, like a balcony or courtyard, growing a vertical garden is a great way to create a natural feature.
Add some colourful flowers to brighten up your garden beds or think about planting some fruit trees - they can be an attractive addition to your garden, and nothing quite beats the taste of homegrown fruit.
