You may well have seen the Ideal Home magazine on the shelves of your local newsagent. This is their online offering.

Packed full of inspiring images and articles, no matter which room you want to ‘do-up’, Ideal Home will have something for you.

It also comes with plenty of practical tips too and breaks down the content into a handy menu based on the rooms of a typical house.

We used the Ideal Home online magazine when we did up our master bedroom in our current home. I knew I wanted a warm colour to make the room cosy, but all I could think of was red and orange. But I didn’t think that would look nice.

Ideal Home gave a lot of inspiration and ideas, and we now have a lovely bedroom that feels cosy and warm.

3. Houzz

This may not be a big attraction if you like to get your hands dirty and do the work yourself, but Houzz have thought of that too.

As well as the practical help, there’s an impressive range of stylish items for the home available from the Houzz online store. That makes Houzz something of a one-stop shop for inspiration, tradespeople, and products.

If you like to have a go at DIY, but don’t yet class yourself as an expert, Ultimate Handyman should definitely be on your bookmark list.

There’s a large number of articles on the site covering everything from tiling and plumbing, through to vehicle maintenance. If you’re more of a visual learner, there’s plenty of DIY ‘how-to’ style videos too that show you exactly what to do.

One of the biggest reasons to visit Ultimate Handyman though is for their popular DIY forum. That’s where you’ll find over 43,000 members ready to answer any questions you might have about a job or repair you need to carry out.

5. Little House On The Corner

This is a wonderfully stylish, colourful home improvement website ran by the ever-enthusiastic Christine and Jan. It documents the many impressive projects they have tackled on their own property over the years with lots of useful tips and inspirational ideas along the way.

The photography on the site is superb, you’ll get lots of before and after pics and step-by-step images, each one expertly taken to show you everything in perfect clarity.

There are also a number of free printables too, as the couple cover arts & crafts as well as home renovation. There’s very little this creative couple can’t turn their hands to. Their personalities are infectious, and that can only help to inspire you to get creative and give your home a revamp.

I loved browsing through the projects they have done and getting ideas for our own home. I got some really good ideas about kitting out my pantry in our current home. I always wanted a pantry, but I wasn’t happy with just having the shelves.

Their website gave me lots of ideas and easy guides to make my pantry the perfect storage for all my pickles and homemade sauces.

6. Homify

Homify is another home improvement site that mixes inspirational ideas with listings for professional tradespeople and an online store where you can buy all the cool items they feature.

If you’re familiar with Instagram, you’ll recognise what Homify are trying to do with the ‘Rooms’ section of their website. Here you’ll find all sorts of inspirational design ideas. Once you find one you like, it’s easy to request a quote from a qualified professional.

7. Lifehacker UK

If you’re on social media, you’ll probably have seen a video or two from Lifehacker. Their content often goes viral as people love the way they simplify even the most complex of tasks.

While they are heavily focused on life hacks and technology-based tips, they also have a number of useful videos and articles related to home improvement. You might have to dig around their site a little to find them, but once you do, you’ll be glad you did.

While you’re there, we strongly recommend checking out some of their other life hacks too, after all, saving time on other things gives you more time for DIY!

8. Mad About The House

Mad About The House

Website: https://www.madaboutthehouse.com/

Twitter: @katewatsonsmyth

This funky blog is operated by acclaimed journalist Kate Watson-Smyth. You may have heard the name before as she’s a regular writer on interior design at national newspapers such as The Independent and The Financial Times.

She’s won awards for her writing, and her own home has even been featured in Living etc magazine and The Wall Street Journal. Her blog itself has also won awards, so you know you’re in good hands.

The focus of the site is very much on the images, as any good interior design blog should be, but the writing that goes with them draws you in and rewards you for the time you spend reading the many articles.

So that rounds up some of the best home improvement websites in the UK.

But, don’t forget, we have a range of home improvement articles here at Property Road too.
