Simple Home Projects

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in DIY Projects

Have you been saving year after year for a kitchen remodel or similar home renovation project for what seems like forever but never actually doing it? Instead of talking about what you want to do, there are many ways you can actively take charge of your home and bring new light to it on your own. Not everyone is as handy as they would like to be, but that does not mean you have to forgo improving your home altogether. There are many simple ways to spruce up your home without breaking the bank or even needing to hire a handyman!

Outlet Covers

Outlet covers are a quick way to clean up the appearance of your walls or even add a pop of detail to an otherwise plain wall. You can find almost any color or shade of outlet cover at your local hardware store, making it easy to find one that blends with your wall. You can also choose to have them stand out, creating more dimension, by choosing from a variety of fancier options. The most significant part of this project is its simplicity, all you need is a screwdriver, and you can replace your cracked and painted-over outlet covers with new ones and bring a cleaner overall look to your home.

Doorknobs

Replacing your doorknobs is a slightly more involved task than replacing your outlet covers may be, but the tool list is just as simple: a screwdriver. The options for replacing door handles are almost endless and offer a chance to change the appearance of the doors in your home drastically. Whether you have gotten paint on them attempting to repaint your doors or simply want to change the shape or look of your handles, the end result of replacing them is positively noticeable and not much harder a job than replacing your outlet covers will be.

Floating Shelves

Floating shelves can add dimension to any wall and quickly bring life to a room. You may need a drill to complete this project, but it is an endeavor that not only offers drastic change to a room by itself but also opens your wall up to many different decorating options. You can fill them with live plants or succulents that are easy to maintain. Books can also offer great conversation starters and an opportunity to display your interests in your home. Another option is candles to quickly brighten up a wall and add a bit of warmth to your home. No matter what you decide to put on the shelves, adding them to your home is a simple way to bring visual change without too much effort on your part.

and work your way up to the big stuff. You may find that a few small changes can make a big difference. These three DIY projects are a great place to start, but there are plenty of other easy ways to create a big change in your living space. What are some of your DIY project ideas?

How to Have an Organized Remodel

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Tips

So you have spent weeks debating over color palettes for the living room, and you are tired of your partner shooting down all your design ideas. A home renovation project can wreak havoc on a family by bringing everyone to the brink of insanity. While it is definitely exciting imagining how beautiful your home will look once the improvements are complete, it can be stressful getting there.

If you are in the process of remodeling your home, it is important to try and remain level headed. Often, stress can be contributed to the issues that arrive between professionals and homeowners. So what are some common stressors, and how can you best prepare yourself? Today, we are going to focus on how you can have an organized remodeling experience. Let’s take a look!

Where Do I Start?

Whether you are set on launching a major home renovation project or simply gutting out your landscape, most homeowners do not know where to begin. You may be overwhelmed with questions such as:

  • Do you need to hire professionals?
  • Will your permit require permits?
  • Will my property be able to support a new structure?

If you have never done a remodeling project, the lack of knowledge can be even more overwhelming. At the onset, develop a general scope of the project. Write down in details exactly what improvements you seek to make.

Vision

You will need to have a clear vision of what you want before you start your project. If you have not already, it is time to start looking through magazines and websites to see what colors, textures, furnishing, and flooring that you like. Websites like Pinterest can be helpful in developing design schemes.

Once you have made the final decision on what type of design scheme you want, you should piece it together and create a vision board. You can purchase a large bulletin board to place your color swatches, pictures of room ideas, flooring samples, and other items that lend to the design process.

When developing your vision board, ponder over these questions:

  • Do you desire the space to feel warm and inviting or cool and relaxing?
  • Are you going for a more sophisticated feel or a casual feel?
  • What will be the primary function of this room?
  • Who will be spending time in this room?

The answers to these questions can be rather helpful during the planning process.

After you have collected your answers to all of the questions, curated your vision board, and done your research, you should be able to begin your remodeling process with ease. To have even more of a stress-free experience, be sure to leave it to the professionals at Century Tile.
