There are lots of thing in life that we can get enough of, but cool life hacks are not one of those. With creative home improvements, your life can be much more convenient while remaining fun and entertaining. And for that reason, we are pleased to bring you this small article with all the most creative home improvement ideas.
#1. Use old drawers for creative shelves
If you happen to have an old drawer which was found in the basement or from a yard sale, it would be a great idea to turn it into shelves for books, accessories, or even kitchen spices. Just take a few minutes, a hammer, and a few nails, you can build yourself a unique spot for placing items. You can even add a few hooks around it for hanging keys and accessories.
#2. Use old door knobs for hanging towels
I’m sure we all have those jammed door knobs that are waiting to throw away. So why don’t you turn it into something useful and give it a new life?
You can use your drill to attach it to the wall to hang stuff. It might be a hook in your bedroom to hang the clothes or hanging towels in the bathroom. Adding different knob styles also give it a more attractive look. If doing it yourself is hefty enough, you can always reach out to handymen to help with the difficult part of the improvement.
#3. A cheap CD tower turned on its side makes for a great bathroom organizer
It is 2018, and not many people use CD anymore. So your CD tower might be forgotten and is currently sitting in your storage. It might be a good idea to make a bathroom organizer. You can take advantage of the different racks to keep your toothpaste, brushes, lotions, and other grooming products in place.
#4. Use a rubber band if you want to keep your door open
Have you ever been in a situation when both your hands are busy (carrying the stuff you buy from the grocery store or holding something that is really heavy), but the door keeps slamming on itself? Try tying a pair of rubber ban over the two knobs to prevent it from happening again.
#5. Use a rubber band for stripped screws
It sucks to have a stripped screw, and it is even more frustrating when you have to wrench it. If this happens to you, it’s time for rubber ban to the rescue. Take a piece of flat rubber to cover the screw head then use your screwdriver to force it in (or out). You will find it much more comfortable with this technique.
#6. The easiest way to put on your duvet cover
Cuddling yourself inside a warm comforter is always the best, especially when you’re using these 10 best down comforters in 2018. Putting a duvet cover on it? Not so much.
You will then have to work your way in the cover to make sure all the corners of the comforter are in the right place. And sometimes, you will have to tighten all the knots from the comforter to the duvet to make sure it doesn’t shift. Try this to make thing more comfortable.
- First, lay your cover on the bed with its inside out.
- Then put the duvet on top, make sure you keep it in the right position to fit onto the cover.
- Roll them up like a burrito starting at the closed end of the cover.
- After that, work your hands into the open end then pull the comforter out from the inside.
Keep doing it until you get it all out.
#7. Put a magnet strip under your cabinets to store spices
Being in the kitchen when you have just got home from work and the children are screaming for food. Now that can be exhausting. It is even more annoying to find that none of the spices are in their place.
If that usually happens to you, you might want to attach a magnet strip to the cabinets to keep the small spice pots organized.
#8. Use letter organizers to store flip flops or flats
What to with a letter organizer when you’re no longer receiving postal mail? Turn it into a flip flops storage. You can keep your favourite pair of footwear in it, and if there is enough space, you can even keep shoes in it.
#9. Use a squeegee to remove pet hair from carpet.
For pet owners, it sucks to have their pet scattering hairs all over the house. And things are even worse when you have someone with allergy around. It will be a non-stop sneezing and coughing. According to Puphow, for the floor and other large platforms, you can use a vacuum to get rid of those hairs. But what about your clothes, will you use the vacuum on it too? In this case, a piece of squeegee would be perfect. Not only that they’re good at cleaning water splashes, but you can also use it to deal with scattered hairs in your house.
