Easy DIY Home Improvements ANYONE Can Do
You don’t have to spend big bucks and haul in the experts for all home improvements. Some of the easiest are not only the cheapest but also the most eye-catching. One of these is to simply rejuvenate your front porch area. Re-paint the front door and trim, get a new doormat and add a fancy flowerpot, complete with flowers. Two may look even better, then you can have one on each side of the door or steps. If you have a handrail, paint that too, but don’t forget to do the right preparation that is required and use the right paint, e.g. metal or wood.
Kitchen Cupboard Doors
The kitchen is probably the most used room in most homes, so it will wear out more quickly. You could easily give the cupboard doors a new coat of paint and new knobs. When replacing knobs, line up the screw holes or you’ll have to drill new ones, then cover and paint the old holes. But it might be just as easy to replace the doors altogether. Make sure the new ones match up with your color scheme or go with the rich look natural wood. All you’ll need to do is screw in about four screws per door. Quicker than painting!
Floor covering is another easy home improvement. Take out the ratty carpet and install new, or polish those old floorboards up and toss some new scatter rugs around instead. New carpet or linoleum are other options. Some like seagrass matting, but it can be hard to clean if you have toddlers.
The bathroom is a small room that can benefit from some easy home improvements. Add a full-length mirror to give the appearance of more room. Changing the knobs on the cupboards will make a dramatic difference. An area of mirror tiles above the hand basin could be great. Or how about a line of fancy wallpaper along the top of the walls?
Painting and Wallpapering
Painting is probably the most popular improvement that homeowners do. It’s quick, easy and has a great wow factor. Wallpapering is popular too, though it’s a bit more difficult, especially if you are working alone. But what about putting up shelves and changing light fixtures? Not sure how? Learning to use hand tools or simple power tools is not hard. If you would like to do more home improvements but lack the confidence to use tools, take a course or get someone to show you, then practice using them in places that are more unobtrusive like the laundry or a garden shed.
In short, you don’t have to spend much money to do some simple DIY projects that will make a world difference in how your home looks!
