Small DIY Projects Can Make a Big Difference

Welcome to the DIY 2022 edition of West Shore Connect. We’ve all been spending way too much time at home over the past two years, and you’ve probably noticed a few things around the house that need to be fixed or at least spruced up a little.

Our article on easy DIY projects is a good starting point for those looking to improve their homes without spending a ton of money. Painting, replacing cabinet hardware, and installing new light fixtures can go a long way toward freshening up your home’s interior.

Plumbing projects can be intimidating for homeowners, but there are few small jobs that a do-it-yourselfer can generally handle. It only takes a few minutes to swap out a showerhead, replace a showerhead, or fix a running toilet. Clogged drains can vary from minor inconvenience to serious problem, but there a few simple things you can try before calling in a pro.

Our article on making the most of storage space explores ideas for tackling clutter and improving the overall organization of your home. Something as simple as adding a shelf in the kitchen or bathroom can free up some much-needed space for other things. Rolling bins that fit under beds can provide a remarkable amount of space for toys and seasonal clothing.

Selecting paint colors can be one of the most daunting tasks. Our article on choosing paints based on your astrological sign may help you pinpoint colors that make you feel relaxed, focused, or happy. It’s amazing how the right color can improve both the look and feel of a room.

If you’re looking to brighten up your outdoor spaces, try gardening with your kids. It can be educational and fun, and it may just spark a lifelong hobby. If you can set aside a little garden space just for the little ones, this can give them a sense of ownership, and they’ll be so excited to see their plants grow and thrive.

Finally, an outdoor deck can be a great space for entertaining and family get-togethers. Our article covers how to make decks aesthetically pleasing as well as highly functional.
