As you begin to plan your home renovation or home remodel, you’re likely already using one of the best inspiration and idea-gathering tools on the planet: the internet. There are an abundance of home improvement blogs, websites and Instagram feeds that show real-life remodels or give tips and tricks for the next big kitchen renovation. We have a few we like to follow ourselves.
Columbus, Ohio Home Improvement Blogs You Need to Follow
While there are amazing home improvement blogs that speak to a national audience, we also like home improvement blogs that cater specifically to Columbus and Central Ohio. Many of them have practical tips or design ideas that are unique to this region of the Midwest, and we think they’re great to add into your home inspiration mix.
1. House Trends
House Trends is a website dedicated to featuring design ideas from houses around the country, including Columbus, Ohio! It’s a great blog to get ideas from real-life homes and not just cleverly staged layouts.
The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) of Central Ohio is a great home improvement website from which to grab insider tips and ideas. Scroll through the home page for videos, idea books and more. We like that you can get facts and tips from other remodelers, which can help inform some of your important remodeling decisions down the road.
3. Edgework Creative
Edgework Creative is the gold standard for custom built furniture in Central Ohio. Their blog is full of gorgeous photos, plus expert information on how to navigate the world of custom furniture. They also often feature other creatives and makers from around Columbus and Central Ohio who make custom pieces and art.
4. Hamilton Parker
Hamilton Parker is another Central Ohio tile company that will make you want to install new tile–whether you need to or not! Their blog is designed to inspire every homeowner to think beyond a typical backsplash or floor, and to allow your imagination to run wild with gorgeously textured and colored products.
5. Konkus Marble and Granite
If you’re thinking about using stone in your remodel or renovation, it’s time to follow Konkus Marble and Granite on Instagram. This Central Ohio company takes pride in showcasing the many different types of stone that make a home beautiful. We particularly love their projects that display unique or unusual granite or marble used in non-conventional ways.
6. Columbus Architectural Salvage
Recently named the number one home decor store in Columbus by Columbus Underground, Columbus Architectural Salvage is a true treasure trove of antiques and artifacts. We know this isn’t quite “home improvement blog” territory, but we’ve also had many clients come to us inspired by family heirlooms or antiques. This store (and their website and blog) is full of items begging to be incorporated into a home renovation, and you never know what sort of gems you’ll find in their feed.
7. Elm & Iron
Elm and Iron is consistently ranked as one of the top home stores in Columbus, and their blog shows just how good their eye for design is. While this blog isn’t specifically about home improvement, it’s a good place to get ideas for furniture and decor…all of which are a part of an overall home renovation project.
Few home decor stores know how to style a room like Trove. Another home decor store that’s consistently ranked among top Columbus stores, Trove makes you fall in love with their furniture and products through their Instagram feed. Scroll through to see beautifully styled dining rooms, living rooms and even gallery walls, all of which can serve as inspiration for your next home renovation project.
We’d also love for you to follow our home remodeling photo gallery for inspiration from our past projects right here in Central Ohio. Our clients have created some spectacular spaces and we hope it inspires you.
