Hey, everyone! I’m so excited to passing the blog off to Tina, who will share amazing tips on DIY project that anyone can safely do during quarantine. Thank you, Tina! With your great tips, I will be applying them. Take it away, Tina!

Bored with watching TV and movies? Then it may be time for you to find more productive methods for keeping yourself busy while you stay safe at home. One way you can keep yourself active and keep your mind off of stressful events is to work on DIY projects around your home. Whether you rent or own a home, there should be a project you can safely tackle without feeling overwhelmed, and these tips from Inside My World can help you decide which DIY projects to focus on first.

DIY Projects to Provide a Boost to Home Value

Whether you plan to sell your home in the coming year or later down the line, focusing on projects that improve home value is always a safe bet. Renovations that can help net you more profits from a sale include things like refinishing your basement, creating relaxing outdoor spaces, and giving the kitchen a makeover.

Some of these projects may sound really involved, but you can even use relatively simple changes to make your spaces look totally different. For instance, if you want to update your kitchen you could always repaint cabinets and replace hardware. The latter of these DIY projects is so simple to complete that anyone with a little time and some basic tools should be able to take it on with no problems.

DIY Projects to Provide a Boost in Productivity

Do the current lockdowns mean you’re working from home these days? Even with restrictions expected to be lifted at some point in the future, Business Insider says working from home is likely to be the new normal when it comes to many non-essential and office jobs. With that in mind, consider setting yourself up for remote work success by carving out space where you can really focus on your assignments.

Creating a home office can be a fairly simple project, so you could very well have your new workspace up and running in a matter of hours. All you really need is a desk, a comfortable chair, and a quiet space where you can focus. If you need to pick up new office furniture, there are some pretty good deals online, or you could always build your own.

DIY Projects to Provide a Boost in Health & Well-Being

With the pandemic on everyone’s mind, we’re all looking for health-oriented ideas. Thankfully, it can be pretty easy to create a healthier environment both inside and outside your home.

One DIY project you can consider for added health is to grow a vegetable garden. This can be a fun project to tackle on your own or even with little ones, and growing your own vegetables means convenient access to nutritious foods right in your backyard.

For a DIY project that can benefit your mental and physical health, declutter and organize each room in your home. Although we don’t always notice, clutter can cause residual feelings of stress, so use your spare time to clean yours up.

Also, good news! Many home renovations have the added benefit of raising your home’s appraisal value.

DIY Projects That Provide a Boost to Safety & Security

There’s no better time than during lockdown to work on improving the safety and security of your own home. For a simple way to enhance your home’s security, you can always plant

protective shrubs around windows to prevent break-ins. Hardy and thorny shrubs are easy to maintain and can be effective at deterring criminals from targeting your home.

Even though you’re spending more time in your home, smart lights can also add a layer of safety and security. More even lighting can help prevent falls, especially for older adults who may be looking to age in place at home, and being able to control lights from your phone can be a boon to security when you’re away from home.

Lastly, consider building a fence around your property if you haven’t already done so. This is a good deterrent to would-be criminals, especially if you opt for something along the lines of a privacy fence. While building a fence is definitely something you can do yourself, don’t hesitate to bring in professionals to handle the construction.

Honestly, there’s no shortage of productive and simple projects that can keep you occupied around your home. Spend your time on these health- and home-boosting activities. When quarantine is just a memory, you will feel like you accomplished something when you reflect on those shut-in days.
