Wall mounting a TV is a great way to make your room feel bigger. The only problem is it leaves you with unsightly hanging wires or a big project where you have to cut holes in your walls.

But you can use this tip from @hammsmom and keep your wires hidden with a cable wall cover. You can also paint it the same as your wall to blend it in.

#plantwall has over 16.9 million views on TikTok - it’s a popular trend that seems to be sticking around. They’re also easy to do. Just follow @_forthehome to see an amazing example.

You can find hanging plant pots online that simply screw into the wall. These are slightly more affordable if you’re looking for a cheaper option. The pots are also self-watering so when you fill them up, they will give your plant the water they need, when they need it, to avoid overwatering.

Under cupboard lighting in your kitchen looks great, but it’s costly and will need to be installed by a qualified electrician. But using this tip from @livlovery can let you add lights in a matter of minutes. Just pick up some wireless LED lights for no-fuss installation and manage using a remote control.

If you have a smart home and would rather control your lights through Google or Alexa, an LED strip light is also available for just a few pounds more.
