4 Reasons to DIY Home Decor

by Nancy Brenseke 06/26/2022

It's true that it's probably easier to head to the store and purchase a piece of decor that will finish a room in your house. However, it's not nearly as satisfying as creating something yourself and displaying it. DIY home decor projects are more popular than ever before. Here are just a few reasons you should take your home's decor into your own hands:

Making It Yourself Is Often More Affordable

One reason people love to DIY their home decor is it's a cost-effective way to decorate. Whether you are purchasing a few supplies from your local craft store or you are repurposing old products, you will find that it's generally more affordable to make something yourself than to buy it new at a store or online. When you spend less on your home decor, it allows you to stretch your budget and really complete the room you are working on.

The DIY Process Is Personal

By making the home decor for the rooms inside your house, you will have more freedom and flexibility to let your personality shine through. You can personalize any project to suit your own style or preferences, which will result in a one-of-a-kind piece that no one else has. Many people prefer having the ability to craft something that is uniquely suited to their own space.

Working With Your Hands Can Be Good for Your Mental Health

Many people have found that working on projects themselves and creating something that will be used in their own home brings them a sense of peace and relaxation. Whether you like to make canvas paintings or cross-stitch displays, having a hobby that can help you escape from the stress of your daily life can improve your mental health and well-being.

It's Fun to Design Your Own Home Decor

Ultimately, one of the best reasons to make your own decorations for your home is because it's fun. It is something that you can do on your own if you need a mental health break or something you can do with your friends in order to spend quality time together. You will make memories while creating something new, and the home decor item you design will always serve as a reminder of those moments.

I love the ocean, sand and sunshine! That's why I call Hilton Head Island/Bluffton my home! I relocated to Hilton Head Island over 20 years ago from North Carolina after graduating from East Carolina University - Go Pirates! I continue to be successful in real estate for the past 13 Years and with my experience working with top resorts and gated communities, I have cultivated attention to detail, understand the importance of listening first and have the positive "Can Do" attitude in all situations. I offer my sellers and buyers the BEST advice to achieve their real estate goals. I enjoy spending time with my family boating on the May River, attending festivals along Old Town Bluffton and building sandcastles on HHI beaches.  

"Nancy Brenseke is the type of realtor that everyone should contract to sell their property. She is very knowledgeable and gave us valuable information when listing the townhome. The whole process went smoothly and Nancy was responsible for that. She always communicated with us which kept us confident that all aspects of the closing were under control and on track. I highly recommend Nancy Brenseke." ~ Deb Bluffton, SC

"I would highly recommend using Nancy for your real estate needs. She is extremely knowledgeable and responsive. Nancy's representation is top-notch." ~ Jill - Nashville, TN

"Nancy went the extra mile on everything around selling the condo. I would use her again and would recommend her to anyone I come in contact with. Our condo sold in 1 day! She was excellent and hardworker. She helped in all aspects of selling, from marketing with great number of pictures, to home inspection with helping us find contractors to fix the inspection issue so were were able to close."
