Install radiant heat under your new tile floors. There are kits available for the do-it-yourself homeowner, and it’s really not rocket science. It will make a dramatic difference in the “wow” factor of your home both to guests and to potential buyers. Invite them to take their shoes off and feel the heat!

Fix a nail that’s popped partially out of your wall covering with a couple of drywall screws! Insert a drywall screw a few inches above the offending nail and another a few inches below. This will pull the drywall or other wall covering back into the wall stud so that you can hammer the nail back into place without blemishing your wall. Paint the visible nail and screw heads and you’re done!

If water still continues to run from the toilet tank, then you should check the float ball. A float ball that is positioned too high will constantly cause water to enter the toilet’s overflow pipe. A float ball that is positioned too low won’t allow for proper operation. Don’t let the ball touch the tank sides, and replace the ball if it is damaged.

If you have a small, cramped kitchen make sure to choose light colored cabinetry. If you go with dark cabinetry, it will make your kitchen seem even smaller. Choosing a light color, can in fact enhance your sense of space and make your kitchen seem warmer.

As you have seen, there are numerous projects that are possible for even the novice home improver. Be confident in your abilities and prepare yourself by doing some research before you get started. By doing so, you’ll be very proud of yourself because you are the one doing all the work.
