Thousands of people undertake home improvement projects on varying scales across the world every year. It's a huge hobby, inspiring websites, books and a number of prime-time television programmes like Grand Designs and DIY SOS, which features people who started a job that eventually proved to be too much for them, taking their money and leaving them living in a house with holes in the roof and exposed wires everywhere. Many more people find themselves in the same positions as these people, either because of extenuating circumstances or because they haven't properly planned and budgeted the job.

Before you start construction, reconstruction or deconstruction on your home, it's worth finding out what some of the most common home improvement mistakes are so that you can avoid the during the improvement process. A number of books and website are based around home improvement tips that are freely available to home-owners. For instance, if you're remodelling with a view to selling the property on, it's best not to put in pieces that you consider to be interesting and attractive but others might think are hideous – you might not get your investment back. Also, when you plan the process before it starts, don't begin to make changes as you go along unless they're necessary for the safety of the house and its occupants, otherwise costs may spiral and it'll take longer to finish. Heed the home improvement tips from those that have been through the process and your project will finish on budget and on time.

Aside from the living room, the kitchen is the best room in the house to be remodelled – just a few simple changes can give it a whole new look and radically alter the feel of it. Whether you want a stainless steel paradise or a homely country-style kitchen, it's very easy to make the changes to achieve your vision. However these changes (usually the worktops and the cupboards and storage facilities) can be expensive, meaning that corners might need to be cut elsewhere to keep costs down. Kitchen appliances sets which combine things like cutlery and crockery, different kinds of drinking glasses, baking equipment and kettles and toasters can be bought from various department stores to save some of the money that needs to be spent elsewhere.
