Make your home Raya (and Instagram) ready this festive season with home upgrades that don’t require a lot of your time and money.

Check out these quick, easy, and affordable tweaks you can make in your home to celebrate the Raya season with friends and family. These home improvement tips will not only upgrade your aesthetic but can actually increase the value of your home in the long run.

1 Fresh Coat of Paint

If the paint from your kitchen cabinets are fading or peeling off, it’s time to give them a fresh new look. So, if adding new cabinetry is too time consuming or pricy, try giving your cabinets a new coat of paint.

2 Make A Statement (Lighting)

One of our favourite quick and easy home upgrades is lighting. Switch out your boring lamps and shades to statement pieces like the chandelier in this home.

3 Get A Handle on Things

Swapping out old and loose cabinets handles can make a big difference in how your cabinets look. Shop for decorative handles and knobs on Lazada – they’re affordable and good looking!

4 Give Your Ceiling a Royal Treatment

Crown moulding is a go-to remodelling trick that adds to the character and aesthetic of your home.

5 Get With Fun Fabrics
