Close all of your open tabs and stop your search for a plumber. Even if you're a beginner DIYer, you can likely handle many basic home issues yourself, no handyperson necessary.
Just ask DIY expert Elisha Kelly, who is always encouraging her followers that DIY projects may seem intimidating, but all it takes is a bit of knowledge and some determination. We tapped her and a few additional home project experts about which tasks you can safely tackle yourself without calling a professional.
Ready to tackle some beginner house projects? Here are the ones experts recommend starting with.
“So often, I hear people say, ‘I’d love to do DIY projects, but I don’t even know where to start,’” Kelly says. Her best trick? Starting small and consulting YouTube.
That’s where DIYer Julian Thomas, who jokes that he’s a graduate of YouTube University, turns. Instead of outsourcing simple home projects, he’ll find a relevant YouTube tutorial to walk him through the work.
Thomas also recommends tapping into home improvement brands’ education hubs, which offer vast amounts of how-to resources for DIY projects. Command has one, and so does Lowe’s.
