With the start of a fresh new year, it often acts as a chance to create a list of goals that you want to achieve. While some focus on personal and health goals, you may be taking another approach for 2019, setting your sights on DIY projects around the home. No matter how many projects you have or haven’t completed in 2018, when it comes to home ownership, your work is never truly done. Typically, the minute you finish one project, you’ve already got a handful of others in mind.
So, to help you prioritize and put together a realistic to-do list for 2019, here are five DIY projects worth considering.
Build a Garage in Your Yard
Have you been going without a garage for far too long, or maybe you do have one but it doesn’t meet your current needs? Building a brand-new garage in your yard can be one of the smartest DIY projects you can tackle in 2019. It can be used to store your car obviously, but it can also be used as a workshop and provide plenty of extra storage.
One way to go about it is to take a look at building your own steel building, such as the ones you can purchase through Armstrong Steel. You can find more information on their website on such things as how you order the structure, the typical costs, and how long it takes to arrive. The great news about a steel building is the fact it doesn’t require much maintenance after it is built, which means you can essentially build it and forget about it.
Modernize the Kitchen
When it comes to the most-used room in the house, often the kitchen is the first room that pops into mind. With that said, it can take quite a beating over the years and begin to show wear and tear a whole lot faster than the other rooms. Modernizing your kitchen can be a wonderful way to spark a little style into your home.

Obviously, you can go all out and completely gut the kitchen, but if you’re just looking for some simple, budget-friendly DIY projects, you can add the following to the list: swap out the existing hardware, add a backsplash, install new modern lighting, give the room a fresh coat of paint, and re-finish the cabinets if possible.
Install New Flooring
Now this DIY project might be better suited to those with a little DIY experience around the home. Installing new flooring in one or more rooms can be quite labor-intensive but the results can be nothing short of spectacular.
Create More Storage
A lack of storage is something many home-owners complain about, and the result of this lack of storage is a home that can feel cluttered and disorganized. Why not work on creating new storage options, which can sometimes mean looking at furniture and spaces in a multi-purpose manner?
Give the Front Door a New Look
While you’re making your list of DIY projects for 2019, don’t forget what you can do for the exterior. A fresh coat of paint on your front door will not only improve curb appeal, but it will totally transform the look of your house.
Each of these DIY projects will provide you with some fabulous results in 2019.
