Home improvement concerns renovating or making additions to one's personal home. It can be accomplished by professional contractors in skilled trades or with DIY methods. For DIY home improvements, hardware and general home improvement stores usually carry all the necessary tools.
Home improvement has many benefits. It often boosts occupants' enjoyment of a home, and doing simpler home repairs yourself instead of hiring a contractor can save money. Fixing up houses is also typically cheaper than trading up.
The possibilities for home improvement ideas are virtually limitless. MNN has a wide array articles that can provide instruction or inspiration. (Photo: Shutterstock)
