DIY Home Improvement Tips to take Your Renovations to the Next Level!

DIY home renovations can almost feel like a primal urge; a deep desire to decorate your nest and make your space your own. With all the necessary materials readily available at our fingertips, home makeovers and revamps have never been easier.

Whether you’re looking to freshen up a room or remodel your whole home, here’s just a few DIY ideas to spark some inspiration, while also ensuring your project is completed safely. 
Small home improvement projects
Turning your home from drab to fab doesn’t have to cost the world. These projects might be small in scale, but they can help make a big impact and turn your house into a home.

Paint a feature wall
Perfect for a bedroom, playroom or study, all you need is a brush or roller, a tin of paint and a couple of spare hours to create an eye-catching feature wall. Safety should always be your highest priority, so gloves and eyewear are advised. Also, don’t forget about any nearby furniture which could become damaged if it catches a drop of paint.
Bring the outdoors indoors
Indoor plants can bring life into an otherwise bland and sterile space. If your thumb is more brown than green, choose succulent plants which are known to not need a lot of water to stay happy. 
Entertain outdoors
Even if it feels like you have the smallest balcony in the block, the addition of a few small trinkets, plants and cushions can liven up your outside space. If your fortunate to have a larger outside space, why not consider the opportunity to entertain, and grab yourself an outdoor setting or bbq.
Hang mirrors
The simple act of strategically installing mirrors in your home can seriously increase both the amount of light and the feeling of space. Hang the mirror opposite a window to maximise light, and position wall lamps either side to minimise shadows.

Time-focused & larger home improvement
If you’re preparing to invest a little more time and money, you could potentially transform your home (and add real value to it) with these more ambitious projects.

Give your bathroom new life
Freshen up your bathroom by regrouting tiles and resealing the wet areas. If you’re open to a more comprehensive renovation, consider luxurious features like multiple showerheads or an indoor spa. Professional help is advised for these installations.

Play with light
Use light to create a mood in a room, or to put a spotlight on statement pieces like paintings or sculptures. Take the opportunity to switch all of your lights to energy-efficient LEDs, which also last an incredible 50,000 hours. As above, you may need to employ a qualified electrician for these jobs.
Go self-sufficient
Growing produce can motivate even the most hesitant gardener. Find plants that are easy to grow, like rosemary, mint, basil, potatoes, chillies and tomatoes, and create a veggie patch!

Be smart with your storage
Use clever storage solutions to create a feeling of tidy, minimalism in your home. Certain beds and sofas offer storage space within their frames while installing subtle cabinetry in bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms and studies can hide all of your odds and ends, opening up your space. Be sure to watch your fingers and be careful with your power tools if you do choose to install anything.
DIY renovations are limited only by your imagination...and budget; but hopefully, these ideas serve as a springboard for you to jump from. Keep in mind that all DIY projects have an element of risk, so you should do all that you can to keep yourself safe.
