Quick and Easy DIY Projects to Transform your Apartment into a Homely Space

At our Mallard Creek apartments, each unit is spacious, luxurious, and designed to feel like your own personal sanctuary. As a new tenant, you’re presented with a beautiful, clean slate – the perfect platform for creating your very own haven. To make that transformation a tad easier for you, we’ve curated a list of awesome DIY projects that promise a cozy and comfortable atmosphere.


Design a welcoming doormat

First impressions count, right? That’s why we start at the doorstep. Imagine welcoming your guests with a unique, vibrant doormat that’s been customised by you! This cost-effective yet delightful DIY project, found on Sarah Hearts, can transform an ordinary welcome mat into a remarkable entry accessory.


Personalize a statement wall

Use your new apartment as an extension of your personality. Try painting a chosen wall with a statement colour that speaks to you. Although paint may seem pricey, by focussing on one small wall, you can make a bold statement without blowing your budget. Don’t forget to watch out for in-store offers too!


Transform your headboard into a boho dream

For those who adore the boho-chic aesthetic, you’d love this DIY headboard renovation from The Beauty Revival. All you need is weathered wood and textured cotton fabric, then voila – a stylish designer-like piece that doesn’t break the bank.


Personalize your mirrors

Adding mirrors to small spaces can enhance the illusion of more space. Personalize your mirrors to encapsulate your essence and add a sense of richness to the room. This one-of-a-kind DIY project from Sugar and Cloth gives you full creative license to make your mirrors look stylish using paint, beads, and more.


Washi Tape your Backsplash

Here’s another creative way to introduce some fun and colour to your apartment – use the fantastic Washi tape. This bright, long-lasting, yet non-damaging tape is perfect for adding geometric patterns or creative designs on your walls or kitchen backsplash. Here’s some inspiration.


Create a memory wall

Nothing spells home better than having photos and artwork that remind you of your beloved people and memories. Collect eclectic frames from thrift stores and build a gallery wall that showcases your favourite moments. It’s sure to bring a smile to your face every time you see it, and to everyone who visits.
