Giving your home a makeover is an exciting task. It can involve anything from adding a lick of paint to totally stripping everything out and starting afresh. Whether you are revamping your living room or updating your kitchen, you will need the right tools for the job.
From power tools to digital apps, there is sure to be something to make your home makeover a smooth process. Here is a round-up of some top tools to help you out.
While it can be wise to hand over the home renovation duties to a professional, DIY around the house is more popular than ever. If you want to join those who are taking charge of their new-look bedroom or transformed downstairs loo, you can start with an app.
There are many apps out there that are dedicated to home DIY. A quick glance around your smartphone or tablet’s app list will reveal the selection out there. Before you get downloading, it is worth having a clear plan in place beforehand. By knowing what you want to do with the room first, you will avoid investing time and money on one of these digital tools that you might not need.
Once you have a clear idea, you can then address the apps you may ned that will help you plan and create the new space. From creating boards on Pinterest to plotting your virtual room on apps like Magic Plan, you can have everything ready before you start stripping the wallpaper from your chimney breast.
Once you have used your digital tools to help plan and design the room, power tools will physically get the job done. From drills and planers to cordless sanders and jigsaws, there is a tool to fix the drawer or plane the door.
Getting hands on is a good way to take ownership of the revamp. There is a variety of power tools out there and it is well worth asking for advice to ensure you are buying or hiring the right equipment. Follow the instructions, be careful and get sanding to create that beautiful new space.
Keep it Simple
After putting the power tools to one side, you can then begin prettifying things. To do this, you will find the very basic tools can make a huge difference.
To create flawless walls in a colour of your choice, take your pick from the array of colours available. Some paint stores will let you mix your own hues to match the colour you have in mind. When you have your colour, you can get the essential tools for this bit: paint brushes, rollers, paint tray, tape and cloth to protect your floors and surfaces.
These tiny tools help to add the final flourish to a room and can transform the rustic kitchen into a contemporary cooking area and the living room into a refined, relaxing place. All you will need to do next is bring your furniture in and you will have a rejuvenated home.
