4 Easy DIY Steps with Shelley Craft

4 Easy DIY Steps with Shelley Craft

Carpet Court is helping bring your new, or rediscovered, design ideas to life with a range of fool-proof products and expert style advice from Carpet Court ambassador and Australian TV personality, Shelley Craft.

Whether you’re undertaking a major renovation or looking to update a room with a seasonal trend, Shelley has four simple steps to help with your DIY projects.

1. Set a budget:

Your budget is probably the single most defining element of your renovation. However, knowing exactly how much money you should spend isn't as easy as checking your bank account for spare funds. A good rule of thumb is that projects always take 20 per cent longer and cost up to 20 per cent more than you think!

2. Decide on the look you want before
you start:

Look to magazines, blogs or Pinterest for inspiration and narrow it down your favourite pieces. Start looking and sourcing with a camera, not your wallet, and make sure your new found treasures will work together to create a complete look.

To put an end to DIY remorse, Carpet Court has created 3D Design Studio, a revolutionary design tool that helps renovators create virtual 3D rooms to see which Carpet Court flooring options best suit their space. Just upload pictures of your own home, or choose from a selection of room designs, and experiment with Carpet Court’s range of DIY flooring options.

3. Where to begin:

I always work from the bottom up and it’s never been easier to revamp your floors with Carpet Court's exclusive Laneway Collection of vinyl planks and tiles. You won’t need adhesives or sealing so you can lay it down yourself. Its unique honeycomb backing keeps the flooring in place and a hygienic polyurethane surface treatment protects the vinyl, and makes it easy to clean.         

To create an open and light filled space, it’s important to pick the right window furnishings. The fastest and easiest way to update your windows, Carpet Courts Aria Readymade Blinds Collection is available in roller and venetian styles. The best part? You can browse and buy them online at and have them delivered to your door!

4. Use soft furnishings to complete
the look:


The issue people commonly have is they have a bunch of elements they like but the room doesn't work as a collective look. This is where decoration comes in and a popular unifying piece for redecorating is a rug. The right rug is the one that fits your style, your budget and is the right size for your room. A large range of rugs available in store at Carpet Court offer soft, neutral colours and bold, bright patterns to define individual spaces.
