10 of the Best Home Improvement Bloggers on the Web
Looking for home improvement ideas, advice, and tips? Well, in our humble opinion, these are ten bloggers you have to check out.
1) Dio Home Improvements – @Diohomeimprove
For fun, easy to follow tutorials on everything from gorgeous DIY blinds to light fixtures, look no further. Dria makes everything simple, step-by-step, and above all, her ideas are things you can actually DO YOURSELF. That said, the blog isn’t exclusively dedicated to DIY projects. It also features top tips from home improvement companies (for example, the latest colour trends from paint companies), and general inspiration and ideas for your home. Well worth a look and follow in our humble opinion.
2) Amber Interiors – @AmberInteriors
How do you describe Amber’s site? Essentially, gorgeous. It’s like she can turn her hand to any design project, and make it seem like she’s a world leader in that style. If you’re in need of some serious inspiration, this is the place to go. The best part however, is her eye for detail. The final, seemingly insignificant touch is often the most important. By browsing her website often, you’ll find yourself noticing these touches more and more.
3) Better Living Through Design – @bltd
Here’s something a little different. A massive database constantly updated with the best design and home improvement products available to the market, curated and analysed by experts. Think everything from clocks to rugs to mirrors. Even better, you can buy anything you like with a direct link from the product page. Too easy.
4) Dezeen – @Dezee
For the designers and architects out there, here’s an online magazine you should be subscribing to. Split into three main sections (Architecture, Interiors, Design), it features the latest and greatest in worldwide news, work, and inspiration. Get following.
5) Dwell – @dwell
We’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve retweeted dwell. Their website is so easy to use, broken down into sections that are tailor made to fit what you’re looking for. Even better, they have an online shop featuring exceptionally designed products. If you’ve never visited dwell’s website, you should get on that.
6) Niche Interiors – @NicheInteriors
Exactly as the name suggests, this is highly focused on interior design. A perfect mix of detail and short, snappy articles punctuated with images, it’s a great place to learn more about the elements of good design, and get some great inspiration along the way.
7) HGTV – @hgtv
Here’s one of the heavy hitters in home improvement and interior design blogging. HGTV is as wide reaching as any blog on the web, offering advice and tips on everything from kitchen colour schemes to flooring materials. For a one-stop home improvement advice stop, HGTV’s blog is a great place to go.
8) Lindsey Davis – @Lindsey_E_Davis
Senior web editor for Centaur Home Interest (spanning their family of sites, Homebuilding & Renovating, Real Homes, and Period Living), Lindsey lends her expertise to a plethora of home improvement blog topics. For pure versatility and long-form detail, this is a blogger not to miss.
9) Real Homes & Homebuilding – @RealHomes & @MyHomebuilding
On a related note, the blogs put together by these two sites in general are beyond useful to the home improvement enthusiast. Everything from the best way to use natural light, to massively detailed instructions on converting a barn; these two sites have you covered.
10) Belinda Graham – @belindagraham
Reading Belinda’s long form blogging is a treat. She’s a lovely writer, and her expertise and advice span everything from kids’ arts and crafts to detailed instructions on renovating your bathroom. Well worth a look for people who make it their mission to turn a house into a home.
