The most-searched category on Pinterest is ‘Home’ and ‘For the Home’ is the number one most used Pinterest board name. People are looking and there certainly is no shortage of home improvement tips and renovation ideas on the internet. The challenging part can be finding the ones that you can picture working in your own home.
Most of us have Pinterest boards ourselves. Our boards are filled with images and links that inspire us for our dream homes. These images are stunning but sometimes they can leave you feeling discouraged that these ideas won’t ever come to life for you. That’s why we’ve separated our home improvement tips into two categories: 1) One is for those who are looking for practical inspiration for their home project. 2) The other tips are for those crafting their dream home wish list.
Whichever list of tips you lean towards, both will give you ideas on how to transform your house into a pinterest-worthy dream home.
1. Practical Home Improvement Tips to Make Your Life Easier
Baseboard Vacuum System
Sweep things under the rug…or better yet – into the baseboard! Installing a baseboard vacuum system in a high traffic area, like your kitchen, will make keeping your home tidy that much easier. Install the vacuum and all you have to do is sweep and push it into the suction of the baseboard system, no dustpan or effort required!
Motion Sensor Light Switches
Motion sensor light switches are super helpful when your hands are full or dirty. Not only are these switches convenient but they are super sanitary! By getting rid of traditional light switches, you help prevent the spread of sickness and germs in your home.
One home improvement tip to instantly make any space more practical is adding storage space. A great way to do this is by adding drawers underneath your kitchen cabinets (where your baseboards are). These drawers can store baking sheets, muffin tins, Tupperware, or anything you can’t fit in your other cabinets. It’s a simple tip but an easy way to declutter your kitchen and ‘pinterize’ your space.
2. Extravagant Home Improvement Tips to Enhance Existing Spaces
Transform Your Shed
Need more space but don’t want your home renovation project to affect the flow of your daily life? Consider transforming your shed into a functional and charming space. More than just an outdoor storage space, your shed can be a room dedicated to a hobby (or business) you’re passionate about. Greenhouse, workshop, art room – whatever your passion – the sky’s the limit!
Create A Secret Room With A Bookcase Entrance
Satisfy your childhood fantasy by transforming a normal room into a secret space by using a bookcase as a hidden entrance rather than a traditional door. This fun addition instantly adds character to your home and makes the space feel a little more extravagant and special.
Add A Balcony To Your Master Bedroom
An easy way to add a little luxury to everyday life is by adding a balcony off of your master bedroom. There is something about walking directly out of your room and into the fresh air that makes home feel like a holiday.
Your home should be a blend of the practical and extravagant. We hope these home improvement tips have helped show you that it’s in the little details that you can create a practical space designed to meet your family’s needs while also feeling like a luxurious get-away. No matter your budget you can make your house Pinterest-worthy in every sense.
