25 DIY Home Improvement Innovations

From Digitized Color Swatch Gadgets to Chic Flat-Pack Decor

— April 26, 2020 — Art & Design
These DIY home improvement innovations range from digitized color swatch scanners to modular flat-pack furniture.

With the masses social distancing at home as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic, most finally have the time to tackle renovations and re-decorating projects they may have been holding off on.

Those looking to refresh interior spaces with a fresh coat of paint will enjoy Hemway's expressive paint range -- including the brand's Chalk Paint Collection of 24 bold shades, and its Glitter Glaze line in 42 shades. Additionally, Rust-Oleum's Glitter Interior wall paint is another crowd-favorite, creating a more solid finish with Gold and Quartz color options.

Other home improvement innovations to note include Forj's Repair Tape that is flexible, strong and ultra versatile along with the Dry-Treat STAIN-PROOF Original™ product -- a sealer formula that is designed to repel stains and damage while ensuring a seamless tile or stone installation.
