Improving your home is a good choice and makes a lot of sense. Attempting to do the work on your home improvement can be very difficult for some people. The following advice can help you prioritize your home improvement projects.

In all cases, it’s important that you cover up old paint with new paint of the same variety, i.e., water-based / latex paint over latex and oil-based paint over oil. Be careful with oil based paint on surfaces that have foot traffic because it become slippery when wet. However, oil based paint is fine on house trim.
Before you start on any serious improvement to your home, think about what style fits you. Figuring out your decorative style has a major impact on what decisions you make.

After you have started the project, you’ll be free to focus on what it takes to accomplish it rather than elements of design. Figure out what you want to do by visiting neighbors’ homes and checking out media that deals with home improvement.
