Easy DIY Home Improvement

The good news is that you can make a number of improvements yourself without help from a contractor or other remodeling professionals. If you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and tackle a new challenge, W.B. Homes, Inc. suggests a few easy DIY home improvement projects that will give your home the makeover you’ve been dreaming of.

Easy Exterior Fixes

Your front door is one element of your home that has the potential to leave strong first impressions on all of your visitors – as long as its paint isn’t cracked and the hardware isn’t rusted. It’ll take you virtually no time at all to apply a fresh coat of paint to your front door, as well as polish or replace the door knob, hinges, house numbers and other hardware. Create a look you’ll really love by choosing an accent color that complements your home’s exterior while providing the contrast it was missing before.

You can also refresh your home in the course of an afternoon with a good power washing. Dirt, dust and mud all accumulate over the years, giving your siding a dingy, faded look. Use a mild solution of soap and water and spray away this buildup to reveal the siding’s true color and eliminate streaks and smears.

Revitalize the Inside

There are more simple DIY home improvement projects that provide a serious upgrade to the inside of your home than you might expect. For instance, you can easily add a backsplash to your kitchen or bathroom with user-friendly peel-and-stick tiles. With no tile cutting or messy grout to deal with, this cost-effective option will add an instant facelift to the rooms your family uses every day.

Before moving on from your kitchen or bathroom, consider breaking out the painting supplies again and apply a fresh coat to your cabinets. In our experience, new paint can transform drab cabinetry into customized masterpieces. Polish or swap out the hardware to complete the look.

When you’re done in your kitchen or bathroom, don’t put the painting supplies away just yet. Head over to your bedroom and add your favorite accent color to the ceiling. This modern trend will elevate the bedrooms of your home to an entirely new level and provide a stunning contrast to your existing décor.

Don’t Forget Landscaping

Some of the most effective DIY home improvement tips involve enhancing the landscaping around your home. One of the easiest ways to do so is with the addition of solar lights along your walkways, surrounding your planters and countless other possible locations. For just a few dollars each, you can place them in the ground, allow the sun to charge them up during the day and enjoy the ambience at night.

And before you hang up your DIY gloves, closely examine your lawn. Are any areas thinning? Do you see bare patches? If so, it’s simple to reseed and patch your yard’s trouble areas to ensure a fuller-looking lawn that will draw compliments from your neighbors.
