19 Things to Buy for Your Easy DIY Home Renovation Projects
If you’ve spent the majority of the past year at home, you’ve probably been paying more attention to your surroundings. You’re not alone. A survey from Fixr, a resource for cost and hiring advice for home remodeling projects, found that 68% percent of homeowners have done more DIY projects during the coronavirus lockdown than in the past.
Luckily, DIY doesn’t have to be expensive. There are plenty of small projects you can take on that will improve your living space. But the benefits don’t end there. A survey from CouponFollow, a homeowner savings resource, found that two of the top motivators for taking on home improvement projects during the pandemic are enjoyment (49%) and mental health (34%).
Now that spring has arrived, you can also move some of your projects outside and update your landscaping and garden. While you’re outside, take a look and see if your outdoor space is ready for nicer weather. It’s no surprise that these days many people are focusing on creating outdoor rooms for safe entertaining and relaxing.
If you’re feeling inspired to take on a DIY project, here are some ideas for where to start. A word of caution: Many homeowners have their share of stories of DIY projects gone wrong. It’s a good idea to do your research and start small. Before you retile your entire bathroom, try to look at smaller projects, like a vanity replacement or mirror redesign. These tools and supplies will not only make a difference for your space, but they may actually add some value if you’re looking to sell your home in the future.
These updates will make a big difference in your living space—without breaking the bank.
