So, do you want to take your home to the next level? Then check out these five fabulous DIY home improvement hacks.
1.Broken tile and dirty grout
The bathroom is the one place in a home where you get to enjoy complete privacy and escape from the world. Broken tiles and dirty grouts make all these impossible. Besides cracked tiles and dirty grouts are trip hazards. Cut around a broken tile with a tile saw attachment. If the tile doesn’t give way, use a cold chisel. If a void caused the problem, apply a lever compound and allow it to set. Apply motor to the back of a new tile and set it in place and use grout. Seal the grout line to avoid ugly and dirty color patterns in your precious bathroom.
Who said that concrete has to be cold and dull? So why not get creative and redefine your cement floors? Acid staining is a perfect example of giving your floor a stylish covering. Other ways to make cement floors shine include painting, using recycled leather belts and brown paper flooring. Concrete floor improvements are cheap, require minimal effort, and most of all add a unique twist to your home.
3.Improved cutting board/Trashcan
A modified chopping board/slide trash can looks sophisticated but can be easily constructed. To create one, you need two cabinets. Change the top cabinet such that it becomes a side out chopping board and don’t forget the handle. The fascinating aspect of this home improvement is the hole cut 7-8 inches away from the handle. The cabinet below should then be designed to fit a regular trash can. What makes this type of chopping board genius is the efficiency.
4.Slide out narrow cabinets
Believe it or not, convenience in storage can transform even the smallest home into a cozy, spacious, stylish living space for friends and family. Sliding cabinets can be used in the kitchen bathroom, bedroom, and garage. You can decide to make single or multiple sliding cabinets depending on how much space you need to conserve.
If your outdoor and indoor furniture are looking dingy but still in functioning shape, there are several kits available to freshen then up. Re-painting is the easiest method to improve old furniture. You can also use foam brushes and rollers to get a smooth finish.
