Starting a home improvement project can be daunting – whether it’s big or small – from a new backsplash to a full overhaul with multiple home repair to-dos.

There are tons of options out there for DIY improvements, but no matter the size of your project, it’s important to know what materials are needed for your home renovation or project — and where you can get them!

So, what are you waiting for? Here are a few home improvement project ideas to get your inspiration flowing!

#1 Spruce-Up Your Interior Living Spaces

There are many ways to improve your home’s curb appeal, including landscaping, a new front door, outdoor lighting, or slapping on a fresh coat of paint. BUT, since you spend most of your time inside, why not make sure that your living space positively impacts your home value?!

Changing up the look of your living spaces can include a complete overhaul of your interior design, updated paint colors, new window treatments or swapping out old carpet for new wood flooring. Whether it’s your living room or entryway, sometimes you need to give your home a little facelift!

Update Rooms with Wood Flooring

Many of today’s homeowners are electing to use natural hardwoods for a traditional, homey feeling, not to mention the health benefits that coincide with hardwood products.

In fact, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), hardwood floors improve indoor air quality because they don’t harbor microorganisms, allergens, and pesticides. Hardwood floors also minimize the accumulation of dust, mold and animal dander!

If you’re looking for a product that pairs well with ever-evolving design trends, then wood flooring is it! Baird Brothers Fine Hardwoods is a trusted source for a variety of hardwood products, including flooring. Explore interior doors, wood flooring, custom crown molding, stair parts, and more to make sure that your home remodel wows your guests for years to come. Afterall, even something as simple as a hardwood light switch cover can elevate a room!

#3 Woodworking DIY Projects

DIY home improvement doesn’t have to mean full-blown home remodeling. There are plenty of ways to incorporate new accents in your home without doing a complete reno project (like replacing vinyl tile with hardwood flooring – although the health benefits of wood flooring suggest you maybe should!). In fact, DIYers across the globe are creating woodworking projects that add function and fashion to your home.

Woodworking with fine hardwood products lets you create show-stopping fixtures that you won’t get anywhere else (especially not by using cheap beadboard from Home Depot).

There’s a reason why Baird Brothers Fine Hardwoods has been in operation (and growing) since 1960. Fine hardwoods have always been part of the latest trend. Why? Because they’re timeless!
