A certain addition to your home can add style and class to it. Perhaps you want to add in a library or a wine cellar. Not only will you guests be impressed, but if you sell your home in the future, it will entice potential buyers.

Install weather stripping on the doors and windows to make your house more energy efficient. This very inexpensive fix from the hardware store, will seal out the hot or cold air and make your heating and cooling system much more effective. You won’t experience drafts on cool, breezy nights, either.

Put nail holes in your paint can rim. A common problem that occurs with paint cans is that paint spills from the can as the lid is replaced, thanks to a channel in the can. To solve your problem just get a nail and make sure you drive holes around it to fix the channel.

A touch of spackle and a little paint will freshen up walls that look the worse for wear due to lots of nail and hanger holes. Purchase spackle at any home improvement center. If the holes aren’t too large, you will just need a small amount of spackle. You can use a bobby pin to put spackle in the tiniest holes. After your spackle has dried, use some sandpaper or even a credit card to smooth everything out and make the wall look new again. Then you just have to paint. This will make the holes in your wall disappear overnight!

These ideas serve as a small sampling of the many resources about home improvement out there. Keep learning all you can to better your home improvement skills. Well thought out plans and research can be what makes or breaks your home improvement project. Before you start a new project, have a clear idea of what must be done.
