Renovating your home or improving can increase the value. Certain projects may make you balk at both the price and the work required. Luckily, there are a few projects you can do yourself that don’t require any extensive knowledge. Here are four DIY projects that any beginner can do in their home.
1. Paint Change
It’s incredible just how much a change of paint can transform a room. If you have rooms that are dark or oppressive, then painting the walls white, off-white, or cream may drastically change the feeling it gives. You can also use paint to change the aesthetic of your home. Instead of using stark contrasts for modern or industrial design, you may want greys or whites for farmhouse rustic. If it’s your first time painting a room, don’t feel too overwhelmed. All you need is painter’s tape, paint rollers, and paint. Visit a hardware store near you to look at all the paint samples and choose one that appeals to you. You can then ask for painting advice and have the salesperson help you find all the supplies you need. Don’t forget to look online for how-to videos that will make the job easier.
2. Add a Fence
Building a fence is easier than you think. All you need is some reclaimed pallet wood. You can visit a hardware store and pick up some nails, a shovel, and a hammer. That’s all you need for this project. To make your fence, you just need to remove the panels from the pallet until you create a design that you like. You can even paint or stain the wood to make it look fancy. Dig a hole in your yard to stick some of the pallet wood in it, then cover up the trench to ensure the pallet wood stays upright. This makes a great garden fence or decorative perimeter fence.
3. Plant Flowers
Gardening can completely change how your landscape appears. If your yard doesn’t have any flowers or bushes, then try to grow some. If you don’t have a green thumb, you can find that several flowers don’t require a lot of care. The growth of ivy or sudden blossoms of color can make your home look welcoming and warm. Bushes can also be used to hide certain elements of your home that aren’t so attractive.
4. Change Light Fixtures
If you have the same light fixtures in the home as when you moved in, then that’s a problem. Light fixtures change according to the latest trends. They’re also likely less efficient than new fixtures. There are a ton of different options available and switching them is easy. You just need to unscrew them from the ceiling, then screw the new fixtures into place. With different lights and fixtures in the house, it may change how the concept of space plays in your home.
These four DIY projects are so easy, practically any beginner can do them. Try them out today and see how easy it is to renovate your home on your own.
