There’s no shortage of resources on the Internet when it comes to home improvement, DIY, and decorating.

Cutting-edge home improvement apps and platforms like Pinterest and Houzz give homeowners access to a plethora of passionate DIYers and professionals right at their fingertips. But, it can be hard to sift through all of them.

Depending on your next home improvement project, you could be looking for classic paint palettes or a step-by-step guide for re-tiling your kitchen. We’re here to help.

From small-town decorators to national brands with big content budgets, check out some of our favorite home improvement blogs to get the gears turning.

6 home improvement blogs to inspire your next project

Design-Savvy DIYers

Home improvement bloggers.

1. Designer Trapped

If you’ve ever dreamt of trading in your suit coat for a toolbelt, this blog is for you.

Tasha, a self-proclaimed designer trapped in a lawyer’s body, did just that. The former civil trial lawyer began blogging full-time when her keen eye for design and decorating tips got the attention of more than just her family and friends.

And it’s no wonder — her blog offers beautiful photography, sweet anecdotes, and a slew of helpful decorating resources. From pillow arrangement strategies to area rug placement, Designer Trapped reveals the true secrets of home styling.

2. Centsational Style

Part renovator, part decorator, and part DIYer, Centsational Style has the trifecta when it comes to home improvement expertise. Kate’s clean, colorful blog offers homeowners advice on everything from peel-and-stick floor options to DIY picture frame molding.

One of our favorites? Her guide to cheap and easy DIY shiplap – a common favorite among Fixer Upper fans and anyone with a knack for classic farmhouse style.

3. Remodelaholic

The name of this blog speaks for itself. Cassity and her husband are remodeling gurus, relentlessly employing their motto, “reduce, reuse, recycle, re-purpose, remodel.”

Their posts go beyond sliding barn doors and PVC pipe hacks, too. “Cass,” as she calls herself, isn’t afraid to go a little bit deeper when it comes to family topics and homemaking. With that said, readers especially show some love for her in-depth project tutorials and downloadable printables.

4. Realtor.com

Real estate and home improvement go hand-in-hand. We couldn’t complete this list without including one of our favorite real estate thought leaders.

Homeowners and renters alike can go here for anything remotely related to real estate. Need moving day packing tips? Sure thing. Wondering what the tax benefits of homeownership are? They can tell you that, too.

We’ve even been known to retweet a few of their blogs every once and a while (follow us on Twitter!), and we don’t see ourselves stopping any time soon.  

5. Good Housekeeping

This is yet another example of a blog that discusses topics beyond the physical aspects of a home. From cleaning product reviews to recipes and parenting tips, Good Housekeeping is a one-stop shop for all things “home.”

With spring right around the corner, one of our favorite reads right now is 20 Easy Landscaping Ideas for Your Front Yard. In addition to the gallery of gorgeous pictures, their ideas for kicking up your curb appeal are top notch. Who knew you could test the dryness of your soil with a screwdriver?

6. At Home: A Blog by Joanna Gaines

With HGTV’s Fixer Upper on its last season, there’s no better time to show the Gaines’ family some love. Joanna’s At Home blog not only provides readers with re-caps from the homes she and handyman husband, Chip Gaines, transform on their hit TV show, but also touches on issues of the heart.

Whether she’s penning her thoughts on gratitude or featuring the emotional journey of a local artisan, she never fails to make you feel like you’re having a great conversation over a cup of coffee with your best friend.

We’re thankful to have access to amazing thought leaders in the home improvement industry. Of course, we love writing about this kind of stuff, too. For anything roof, windows, siding, or doors-related, we are the experts.

Sign up for our weekly blog alerts and monthly newsletter to get all this right in your inbox.
