Easy DIY Home Improvement Projects for Beginners : DIY Home Improvement

Are there parts of your home that need a little improvement or renovation? It is always a good idea to call a professional home improvement and renovation professional for larger-scale projects such as kitchen renovations, roof replacement and electrical work. But there are many home improvement projects that can be done by home owners over the space of a weekend. Here are some easy DIY home improvement and remodeling projects for beginners:

Painting the Walls

One of the most cost-effective and quickest ways to improve the appearance of your home is with a fresh coat of paint. Painting your home yourself is very rewarding, as you can paint several rooms in a day thus saving on your budget. Be sure to carefully prepare the walls to be painted, patching and sanding any holes and removing dirt and residue before using your roller to apply primer and two coats of paint.

Decorating With Stencils                               

Adding stenciled designs is a unique and easy way to decorate walls of your home. Stencils are available in a variety of patterns, styles and sizes, or you can cut your own with a few tools. Check out Tools Orders who stock tools for all kinds of tools for home improvement and remodeling projects. When you’ve chosen a stencil, spray its back with temporary adhesive, position it, and use a brush to dab the inside with either craft or wall paint. If you’re decorating furniture or other heavily-used items, choose durable paint and a good top coat.

Organize Your Closet

If you’re like most people, there’s at least one closet in your home which needs organization – and you have no clue where to start. Begin by removing everything, throwing out or donating anything you don’t use. Measure the inside of the closet and buy a closet organizer that fits well and has the features you’re looking for. With a minimal set of tools, you can organize your closet in minutes.

Hang a Ceiling Fan

Ceiling fans not only beautify your home, they cool it in summer and circulate heat during winter. Fans are an easy way to freshen up older light fixtures, and they’re available in a selection of styles and colours. Hanging a ceiling fan requires basic electrical knowledge. If you doubt your expertise, call in a professional.

Replace Outlet Covers and Switch Plates

Over the years, outlet covers and switch plates become dirty, cracked and splattered with paint. Count the number of plates in your home, buy enough new ones, and install them with just a screwdriver.

Install a Backsplash

Putting in a backsplash is the simplest way to freshen and improve the look of your kitchen, and the new “peel and stick” tiles mean faster work and fewer tools are needed. If you’re planning to sell your home, add value by installing a tile-and-grout backsplash; it’s a little messier, but more appealing to potential buyer of the home.
