2023 is still fresh. And like other years, 2023 comes with new routines, resolutions, and exciting home improvement projects.
As homeowners gear up for this New Year, experts shed light on popular DIY home improvement ideas. Some of the home improvement project ideas you can opt for are:
1. Create Wall Art
You don’t need to be an artist to create wall art. If you are unable to afford a $400 wall art, you can make one instead.
On TikTok’s DIY wall art page, you can find peel-and-stick wallpaper, which looks similar to museum-art-worthy art, sponge paint hacks, and heavily textured canvases.
While this DIY improvement project shows that the idea is the hardest part, the real execution is very simple.
2. Make Magazine Rack
Woodworking is one of the rewarding hobbies which may last a lifetime. And can be passed from one generation to another. It only requires basic skills, woodworking machinery, and hand tools.
One woodworking home improvement project is a magazine rack. Three or four evenings around your workshop is all you need to build this rack.
3. Switch the Siding
A three-story home photo may include light illustrations which highlight upgraded windows and solar panels.
The exterior parts of a home are the main aspects of curb appeal. And regardless of your effort to keep the siding clean, the siding will crack and color fade over time.
Installing a new siding can guarantee a good finish, and a more durable siding may minimize maintenance needs and water absorption. This can also be a perfect opportunity of switching up your aesthetic with a new trim, pattern, and color.
4. Add Kitchen Island
A kitchen island provides additional storage areas, more seating options, and counter space. If you have a kitchen island already, you might want to upgrade it.
Based on your kitchen’s size, designing your space to have a minibar can also be a perfect idea. You can effectively add some shelved racks to keep alcohol and drinking glasses in storage space.
5. Refresh Rooms Using Paint
Give your drab walls a burst of brilliant depth by applying some paint. There is the power of paint. It can rearrange your reality. That is why painting remains one of the most oft-tackled upgrades.
Although you don’t need to be an expert in applying paint, there is more to an amazing paint job than slathering color on the walls.
6. Change Bathroom or Kitchen Hardware
This is among the simplest projects you may do to refresh a bathroom or kitchen. Before you get started with the project, ensure new hardware can fit well.
In order to make sure new hardware pieces are a snug fit, consider measuring the distance between two holes and bring old knobs to a home improvement store to compare. You can also check online for a better price.
Trends often come and go. Although trends can be popular at the moment, if they don’t work for the appearance of your home, then be free to make a few creative adjustments. And before you embark on a DIY home improvement project, consider your unique needs, family’s lifestyle, and budget.
