Top tips for improving your home in 2022

So you want to try your hand at home improvement, huh? Do you know anything about this kind of work? Do you know about all of the different kinds of tools and safety regulations? Do you know what entails a good job? If these questions raise more questions than you can answer, try looking at the tips below.

Tip 1 - use bring colours 

Don't be afraid to use bright colours in the decor of your home. Paint a wall pink or red if you want to. It's only paint, you can always re-paint it later. The most important thing is letting your own personality shine through in the style of your home.

 

Tip 2 - new paneling 

Age your new wall paneling a few days before installing it. New paneling is typically stored at the warehouse in large tightly compressed piles. When the individual pieces are removed from those piles and exposed to room humidity they sometimes shrink. Providing an ageing period of a few days in your home will keep you from suffering the consequences of the shrinkage.

To stop squeaks, use construction adhesive. If you do this, be aware that you are going to have to go under your home. Utilise a caulking gun to apply glue to the sides of each floor joist. The joists are secured to the subfloor planks by doing this.

After your home improvement work is finished, do not submit your final payment until you are happy with the work that was performed. You can also make "progress payments," which involves giving the contractor small sums of money in certain increments over the course of the project. Do not pay for work that you are not satisfied with.

 

Tip 3 - Whiteboard splashbacks

If you are renovating your kitchen. Try a white splashback - guess what they double as a whiteboard. Have a large bulletin board in your kitchen or living room, where you can write reminders for yourself of things you need to do or bills you need to pay. Emergency phone numbers, contacts, brochures, postcards and notes to yourself, look better arranged on a bulletin board and won't clutter your refrigerator or other appliances.

 

Tip 4 - extension

If you have the space and it is allowed under city ordinances, consider adding an extension to your home. The extra space can be used as an office, den or family room. Consider putting a skylight in your addition. These add-ons will increase the value of your home considerably.
