We are getting our house ready to sell and are in the middle of many DIY Projects. It’s a lot of work and we are hoping it will pay off when it comes time to sell. So what DIY projects should you tackle and which projects should you hire a contractor to do? It depends on your skill level and your budget. Painting and landscaping are examples of DIY projects that most homeowners can tackle themselves. If you are a little more adventurous installing tile or wood flooring are DIY projects that you can do yourself and save some money. If you have never installed tile I would recommend attending a How-to-Workshop at one of your local home improvement stores.
I have done several tile projects over the years and encourage you to try installing your own tile backsplash. It is a relatively small project that can make a huge difference in the look of your kitchen and bathrooms. The tile I bought cost $5 for a 12×12 piece and the total cost for the kitchen and bathrooms was around $150. It’s also very easy to change out a Kohler faucet and make the entire bathroom look completely different for very little money.
