Now that staying at home is more advisable than ever, using your free time to transform the interior design of your home is a great idea.

With the help of some simple materials such as wood, carbon fiber or even simple pet bottles you can modify the decoration of different rooms and, at the same time, entertain yourself.

Floating tables and storage spaces

Some of the options that help you change the ambiance are coffee tables with drawers, functional storage spaces and floating drawers that you can hang on the wall. Here are some helpful ideas:

Floating drawers

These boxes are usually square, although they can also be found in other shapes such as hexagons and triangles. They are excellent for placing ornaments, books or plants and give an enveloping feeling to the interior of the rooms.

Functional spaces

You can also build some boxes that give style to your spaces and, at the same time, serve as surfaces where you can place decorative objects. These have the advantage of offering extra storage for items you don’t use often or even for Christmas decorations, if you have little space to store them.

Health is paramount. Staying healthy is the best way to enjoy a good quality of life, and even more so in these pandemic times.

Once you have your plan and the elements you need to create or repair, you’ll find that the cost of doing it yourself is less than half the cost. In addition, making your own furniture will help you connect more with your home and help you enjoy and value the space you live in more.
