HOW TO MAKE YOUR HOME WORK FOR YOU

All makers love to, well, make things. My most favorite kind of DIY project is one that makes life easier. Here’s a round-up of a few simple projects that will make any home happier and your day-to-day routine just a little bit better.

LIGHT TRAIL

Are you one of those people who pees in the middle of the night? Lifehacker shows you how to create your own bedroom-to-bathroom illuminated walkway. Genius.

USB OUTLET

Wouldn’t life be nice if you could just plug a USB directly into the wall ? Learn how to upgrade your wall outlet and quadruple its charging capacity at Apartment Therapy. 


PRINTER DRAWER

No one likes to look at an ugly printer. Not to mention the fact that it takes up way too much real estate on your desk. Luckily, Lifehacker has come up with a clever trick to hide that hunk of junk.

What’s the best DIY home improvement project you have tackled recently? Tell us below or @WIREDInsider.
