Hardwood floors are highly desireable for most homeowners, but they do come with their share of challenges when it comes to cleaning, maintenace, and repairs. After a few months or years of heavy use from kids, pets, and moving furniture, it may be time for some DIY fixes
Hiding Scratches: If you've got a good eye for matching colours, you can actually use crayons or markers, or purchase wax sticks from a hardware store to fill in scratches. Try to match the stain colour on your floor, but don't worry if it's a little off. If the colour is close, once the scratch is filled, it'll look like a varation in the wood grain.
Polishing floors: You can make a polishing solution for your floors from household ingredients. Mix equal parts olive oil and vinegar. Pour solution directly into scratch and let stand for 24hrs. Wipe away and apply using same method until scratch is filled and covered. This method should fill most scratches.
Clever Decor: It's not a long term solution, but it's sometimes the most practical way to fix a large unslightly scratch. Try covering scratch with a rug or get creative with your furniture arrangement.
Spot Sanding: This fix is a permanent one that takes elbow grease and some research. Here are the basics, however I can't stress enough that you need to thoroughly look into this prosses. Ask a worker at your local hardware store for tips and tricks. For deep scratches you'll need to spot sand area with a fine steel wool or sandpaper, use a wood filler, stain and seal the repaired area. Give yourself a full day for this fix.

An accent wall can totally transform a room, taking it from boring and drab to bold and exciting. Accent walls create a new focal point for your space, add liveliness and contrast, and are typically a very inexpensive DIY project.
The Starter Wall. You can easily add an accent wall to your room in one afternoon by applying a new paint colour. Deep blues and bright oranges are common choices, however, you need to choose a colour that will complement your existing decor and overall design aesthetic.
Interesting textures. Bright, contrasting colours are a good starting point, but there are other options for accent wallz that are even more eye catching and distinct. Floor to ceiling wood planks can make your home seem both rustic and modern all at once, and provide a natural, outdoors inspired feel. It's more work than simply painting a wall, but it's still relatively inexpensive. It does take a bit more effort, however it is truley worth it.
Patterns, Murals, and more. Paint and wood are bold enough on their own, but they are still pretty subtle compared to other accent wall options. A chalk paint wall is a creative idea for a childs room, or a games room. Even in the family room. It males for some fun moments when you're entertaining, and prevents crayons on the dry wall. There are also endless options for wallpaper and stencilling if you want bold patterns. If you're looking for something more adventurous and unique, try a mural or oversized piece of art.
The options for accent walls are endless, but we can't stress enough that your wall must match your homes decor and design.
