5 DIY Home Projects Inspired by TikTok

It’s no secret that TikTok has taken over the internet and people now spend an increasing amount of time scrolling through the fastest growing platform watching funny videos. While you may prefer the dancing ones, there are quite educational and useful things you could take away from TikTok. The platform became popular with its shocking everyday items which we were apparently all using wrongly so DIY videos where we all pass on our skills and knowledge about how to do things smartly and more efficiently are definitely on the rise. 

DIY home projects are made to look not only really satisfying but also rather easy to do as well. The truth is, in most cases, these things are not difficult to achieve and do yourself with little help. Since there are millions of videos to go though, here at House Sales Direct, we have gathered some of the best DIY projects which you could do at home and spruce up your place in no time. 

  1. Puff Mirror

One of the latest trends has been the aesthetically pleasing puff mirror. You’ve probably seen these mirrors on influencer pictures and videos, however, they can be rather pricey. That’s why TikTokers have come to the rescue, offering a much cheaper alternative which you could easily do yourself. All you’ll need is a mirror shape of your choice and a spray polyurethane foam as well as a spray paint if you wish to personalise it. It’s important to remember that the material is highly flammable and should be handled with care. 

  1. Accent Wall Decoration

If you are looking to bring some accent to your empty walls, this home project is the perfect one for you. Giving your walls a bit of texture and colours will spruce up the place, making it much more interesting. What you will need to do is paint over one accent wall in a colour of your choice and then get some framework. Simply remove the hardware, glass and artwork, leaving only the frames which you will then paint in the same colour as well. Once that is done you can hang those around in any shape or form you wish and have a wall that is shaken up a bit rather than staying empty and boring. 

  1. Ceramic Vase

If you are a fan of those ceramic matte vases and vintage looking pieces of arts and crafts, but you don’t want to spend too much on them, then this hack is for you. Normally flea markets would be a good place to check first where the prices may be more reasonable, however, if you don’t manage to get any good finds, then why not create your own? All you would need is a simple glass vase in any shape you want, acrylic paint and baking powder to achieve that matte effect on your new vases. Then voila, you have created your very own ceramic looking vase for more than half the price. 

  1. Kitchen Cabinets Makeover

Outdated kitchens are more common than you might think. If you have been stuck in a rental place with old, wooder cabinets in your kitchen, then there is a way for you to do a little makeover which won’t change anything permanently. Most people would simply paint over their outdated cabinets, however, when the kitchen is not yours, you don’t have that much freedom and have to get creative. Black vinyl wrap is not only for cars, because according to DIY experts on TikTok, they could do wonders to your kitchen cabinets. The material is scratch and chip resistant, making it not only the most affordable but also the most practical choice for your kitchen makeover. What you’ll need is some rolls of vinyl either self-adhesive or heat activated, cutting tools and perhaps a hair dryer if you opt for the latter.

  1. LED Mirror

If the foam mirror is not your cup of tea, then there’s another alternative which is equally popular among Gen Z – the LED mirror. Similar to the puff mirror mentioned before, these types of mirrors often carry a big price tag as well. The good news is that they can easily be DIYed for a much cheaper price. Pick your mirror of choice and grab some LED self-adhesive strip lights which could be changing colours with the click of a button. Line them around the edges and enjoy an inexpensive version of the famous LED mirrors.

These are some of the trendiest home DIY projects which are flooding TikTok with various versions of them daily and if you are looking to spruce up your house with a modern features, then give these a try and we are sure you will enjoy both the process and the final results.
