Technology is Helping and Hindering DIY Projects
We all have everything we need to know at our fingertips, and it’s giving homeowners, and renters, exciting how-tos and ideas to spruce up their homes. In the final quarter of 2018, Forbes shared the predictions for home improvement trends of 2019. One useful resource mentioned is the Home Improvement Research Institute to help do-it-yourselfers get the professional advice they may need.
Increase in DIY Home Improvement
From last year’s home improvement data collected, almost 25% of the people across the country had some form of home improvement done. The interesting statistic is that “only 7% of them worked with a professional.”
Do-It-Yourselfers Regret Not Doing More
Of those DIY enthusiasts who completed their project, over 33% expressed “regret not spending more on the project, according to The Regret Factor Study.” It appears that too much information is hindering the planning process.
As the old saying, “sometimes less is better,” goes, it might be a less stressful way to research those projects you want to tackle. Using just a few sources may be less stressful and give you the best inspiring ideas. At Zabitat, part of our mission is to offer ideas and tips to help make home life beautiful, inspiring, and refreshing.
Rental Prices Inspiring Transportable Improvements
The increased rental market’s higher rental prices are creating new DIY projects. Those home improvements are ones that renters can take with them when they move.
With that in mind, DIY shows a few projects that can add unique, home improvement décor that can be transported to the next home. These projects don’t require expensive supplies, and they should be able to be completed and enjoyed in no time. It’s so fun to find simple improvements that can make exciting additions or changes to any home this summer. These might even be fun to do as a family.
The Remodeling Craze is Projected to Continue
With higher prices of resales and the shortage of new homes, homeowners are choosing to stay put and make less expensive, home improvement changes. On The Creativity Exchange, find the trending colors of 2019. The colors are earthly inspired for sure.
Home Improvement Ideas to Save Money for More
For anyone looking for home improvement ideas, DIY Joy has an impressive list of exciting and inexpensive, DIY projects to update a home’s interior. These DIY ideas will help save money and may even leave time and money to do more than you thought was possible. Just imagine what you can do. When you look at the list, it might make it easier to divide the ideas into the rooms of your home.
Painting kitchen cabinets can be an easy way to give this fundamental room a fresh, new look. A bit time consuming, but once you’re done, you will find you love spending more time in the kitchen. Think of all the exciting, new dishes you can plan and serve.
As suggested, create an eye-catching, kitchen island that will surely be a useful kitchen accessory. And, what fun turning the face of one cabinet into your chalkboard for reminders. So many tasteful ideas.
Bedroom, Den or Game Room
The pallet wall concept is a great way to make that accent wall you have always wanted to create. For the more creative mind, use stenciling to create a totally new look.
Another great idea for these rooms, or any room in your home, is creating trim around your windows. If you already have trim, who says the trim has to be white? An excellent way to add some color to neutral-colored walls. There are so many decorating ideas.
Sometimes, the smallest change can make a big difference in bathrooms. While you’re creating trim around your windows, why not frame your bathroom mirror(s)? Another way of using a bold color. Add a tile backsplash that has accents of that bold color around the mirror. Paint the bathroom tiles to coordinate with the backsplash and the frame color. DIY can be so exciting and self-gratifying.
