DIY Home Improvement Tips You Should Know

With time, you will find that you need to change a few fittings in your house due to wear and tear or because you want to brighten things up a bit. Contrary to common perception, remodeling your house doesn’t have to come at an exorbitant cost that sometimes involves vacating the house for a few days.

While you still to need to hire professionals for major home improvement work, you will save a lot of money and time by handling minor works yourself. These are the DIY Home Improvement Tips You Should Know.


A fresh lick of paint can improve the ambiance in your house and increase its value if you are looking to sell and it’s a job you can do yourself. 

Before making any purchase, decide on your choice of color and research on the tools you need. More importantly, learn different painting techniques so you don’t get the paint all over or spend the whole day painting.

Your work will be easier and the end result will be impressive if you buy high-quality paint and tools. Put a layer of old newspapers on the floor and on the window panes to avoid staining them. 

Interior d├ęcor

You don’t have to be a professional designer to change how your house looks. You would be surprised how much something as simple as rearranging your furniture or adding Wow Petopia wallpapers can change the appearance of your house.

Move your seats to create more space, and reposition the TV and other living room electronics. These are cost-effective redecoration ideas that you can do on your own but which can completely enhance the look and atmosphere in your living room. While at it, change your curtains too and installed colored light bulbs. The difference could be the illumination in your house.


You don’t need to hire a professional landscaping company to start a garden in your yard. All you have to do is decide on the type of garden you want to create and research on how to go about and the types of plants you should grow in the garden.

When starting a garden, you should consider the soil type on the location you have identified for the garden and choose suitable plants that can thrive there. You will have an easier time maintaining your garden if you plant indigenous plants that are suitable to your region.

Replace fixtures

Due to frequent use, the coating on your door handles can peel off making your house look older and neglected. Replace your door handles every few years to improve the quality of your home and improve its value.

Similarly, your electrical sockets and switches can get worn out or damaged and require replacements every now and then. To avoid the risk of electrical shock, switch off your mains supply before beginning any electrical work. Your replacements do have to be standard and bland. There are now uniquely designed electrical sockets that also include a USB charging port in the market.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly.

You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits.
