year ago

Renovating an interior seems like an uphill task for many of us — sometimes we might lack the proper knowledge, finances, or time. However, in order to create a dream home that looks like the ones you’d find on the covers of trendy magazines, all you need is a bit of courage and confidence in yourself.

We at Bright Side believe that anyone is capable of creating a dream interior, and as proof, we invite you to look at the photos of homes that people decorated themselves. The bonus at the end will show you a cozy corner created for someone with fluffy paws.

“My boyfriend and I did this bathroom renovation totally on our own within 8 weeks.”

“Our house was built in 1947 and there were many layers of old flooring and a HEAVY cast iron tub.”

“I was out of town working for 2 weeks and my wife surprised me with a low-budget renovation of our basement bathroom!”

“I never had a tree house as a kid.”

“Do you think 40 is too old to build one for yourself?”

“I am 37 and single.”

“With limited space in a 1 bed/1 bath, I put 5 of 7 bookcases behind my chairs. I really love the way it turned out. Sadly, there are no skylights, but plenty of natural light from the sliding glass door. Wish the complex would allow me to paint the walls.”

“I live in a 140-year-old small town brick building.”

“This is my computer and reading-oriented living space. I also like sailing ships and Legos.”

“My loft condo, formerly a bank and a furrier, original 1880 finishes”

“My cozy little corner”

“Not bad for a 17-year-old with a green thumb, eh?”

“Our (mostly) thrifted bedroom”

“First time designing a space”

“26 years old and finally living on my own!”

“I’m not an interior designer but an account executive.”

“I’m 30 years old and bought my first house this year.”
