Simple Home Improvement Tips...

Is it a good idea to rent your Home improvement tools?

Maybe now is the perfect time to start thinking about that home improvement project. You may have been neglecting some aspects of your home for a while, but pull it together, and get it done! The weather is right, so that's no longer an excuse to procrastinate any longer.

Most of the repairs around our homes don't take very many resources or tools at all. Most of us probably have the right tools to do the job. I'm sure you too have a hammer, at least a flat head and phillips screwdriver, and your old trusty set of pliers. These can accomplish a lot themselves.

There are, however, some projects that most of us just won't find in our tool sheds. Unless you're a professional contractor, you will probably end up renting these heavy duty tools. That's actually a good thing, because who wants to spend thousands of dollars on equipment that will only be used once or twice?

Most of us may even put off simple & fast jobs solely because we don't feel like going through the hassle of it all. For example, who do you know that wants to pull a paint brush out to fine tune the corners of a wall? Let alone have the roller sprinkle paint all over their face and clothes. In this situation, renting a spray gun may be the solution for you. This will cut down on the prep and mess in most cases. This is just the beginning. There are several painting duties that can be replaced with professional rental tools.

So this may be a win win situation for you and your local rental company. You save time and effort, and they make a little cash. The right tools will make all the difference. Don't deal with the burden of purchasing thousands of dollars of equipment. Just rent it...

Bathroom Home improvement Projects that won't cost a limb...

What's home improvements without changing the bathrooms? Don't let this frequently used room get neglected when it's time for the home makeover. We don't generally think of the bathroom as a high priority in some cases. People tend to think kitchen, living room, yard, etc. The fact is that tremendous value can be added to the home by making very inexpensive changes. The possibilities are endless.

Looking to make a big impact without spending the big bucks? Don't let this little project be overlooked, because in some cases, the bathroom can be seen as a major part of many peoples lives. Just think of all of the uses the bathroom can have.

I always call my favorite change to any room, the "picture frame trim". This can be added anywhere in the house, but in the bathroom, you can allow it to have a special impact on the look and feel of one of the most private rooms in the house. It always gives you that "I can't put my finger on it" feeling whenever you see them, but don't quite notice what gives it that look. You can also add paint to coordinate the color scheme, but the trim alone, will be sure to make a huge impact on it's own.

Drapes, or curtains are another addition that can add a really different look and feel to your bathroom. These can go around your mirrors or windows. Also, given the various designs there are, you can have many options to work with in this area. Give the room more class. Most people think of huge and expensive additions when trying to make a change. But keep in mind, that often it's the small accents that add the biggest change of scenery. Again, the cost will at the bare minimum when compared to other options of decorating.

Most people don't even think outside the box when it comes to many projects around the home. Have you ever thought of doing anything different to the sink in your bathroom? You can paint them, or add other accents around them to give them a unique look. When all else fails while trying to think of design ideas, take a trip to your local Home Depot, and take a look at some of the designs they have on display.

These are very simple ideas that anyone can implement. Don't let the fact that they are cheap and easy downgrade how big of an impact they can have in your bathroom. Remember, it's usually the little things that matter when it comes to decorating your home.

We could all use a change of scenery every now and then. Think about redecorating your home, and giving it that more modern look. Keep in mind, you don't have to do anything major. Sometimes the small changes make the biggest difference. A first step is to start with the area everyone sees first. This way, the change has a more instant impact.

1. Ever notice a clutter look when you walk into someones home? That person may not even notice that their home is cluttered. Sometimes we want to keep everything we come across. The truth is, most great looking homes don't have very many items in it at all. Use that garage or attic for the things you absolutely need to keep. This will greatly improve the space and look of your living area.

2. Everyone should try to coordinate the colors of their home. This gives it that "one in a million look." Try and make every area, including each room, have it's own theme or feel. This is especially cool for children. Every child has his or her favorite cartoon character or topic of interest. This will really personalize the area for them.

3. We all love to shop, but most of the time, it's for something we want, not for what we need. People are always so quick to get rid of something they've had for a while. You can try fixing it up, or altering it by changing the color. Older furniture is usually cheaper, better quality, and lasts longer. And don't forget, you can always simply move your current furniture and decor around to make it look very different without buying anything else.

4. Once you've gotten your furniture and surroundings situated, try customizing the drapes or curtains. The sky is the limit when it comes to these things because you are the person who decides what looks good and what doesn't. Add personal photos, and a few other accents, and before you know it, you too will have the original and unique looking home...
