2. Modern Ways to Make Your Home More Sophisticated

A cutting-edge chic home is the dream, isn't it? Well, it doesn't have to be just a dream any more as we've really zeroed in on those little things you can do to make sure your home is exactly as you want it to be. 

If you look at contemporary home design projects completed by interior designers and want yours to look just as gorgeous and elegant, then you've found the right Ideabook.

From your living room to your bathroom, we've got some fabulous tips for every room that will see you really reaching the upper echelons of interior style!

1. Incredibly Clever DIY Projects You'll Want to Try

Quick, easy and fun DIY and home improvement projects are fantastic for this time of year, as what can be better than spending a rainy afternoon putting your glue gun to good use or upcycling some existing household items? What's even better is that the projects we're suggesting today are fun for the whole family, so you can really get everyone involved! 

We think you'll impress even the most discerning of interior designers with your creations, so if you have a free Sunday, some artistic leanings and a prepped kitchen table, read on and choose a few things to try.

3. DIY Projects You Can Try (But Should Use Pros)

Having a go at home improvements yourself is admirable, but there are times when calling in a professional will save you time, money and a lot of effort.

We're not saying that you should default to calling in the experts, but it can be a good idea to know your own limitations before costly mistakes are made.

We've drawn up a list of the top DIY projects we think are best left to the pros—from fitting a new kitchen through to laying inch-perfect decking—so take a look and think about letting your builders lighten some of the load!

We all want to live in beautiful homes. In addition, we all want to live in clean homes, which is why we subject ourselves to routine sweeping, mopping, dusting and other fun activities to get rid of the dirt.

But while you are actively scrubbing on this side, you may be guilty to quite a few misdemeanours on that side that are not only wasting your hard cleaning efforts, but could be making your home an unhealthy place to live in.

Allergens are no fun, which is why nobody wants them in their home. But fortunately we have found those mistakes that could be contributing to ill health, as well the solutions to control the dust, mould, pollen, and other contaminants inside your living spaces.

Prepare to be surprised
