Create a Home You Love: How a Home Planner Can Help You Achieve Your Dreams

Check out the New Shop, The Home Planning Hub, on Etsy; it will be worth it.

It’s been quite a while since my last post, and a lot has happened. In my previous post, I mentioned that my family and I bought a new house. After three months of full-on renovation work, we finally moved in last summer. Since then, we have been busy with various DIY projects, from painting and installing new light fixtures to installing floors and building walls.

However, as much as we enjoy doing these projects ourselves, it sometimes feels like we’re not making progress fast enough. The cost of labour is pretty steep over here, so we will stick to DIY, though. We still have larger projects, like building closets and installing a half-bathroom in the primary bedroom, that we need to tackle. But with our busy family schedule, finding time for home renovations is challenging. I’m sure many of you can relate. That’s why I have learned the importance of having a project planner. It helps us stay on track, prioritise our tasks, and make the renovation journey more manageable.

That is why I have some exciting news to share with you today! Recently, I launched a new Etsy shop called The Home Planning Hub. This shop offers a range of products that will make your home DIY planning and renovations much more manageable. You’ll find home planners, lists, and trackers to help you stay productive, as well as fun home interior colouring pages when you need to relax. Let’s look at the available products.

The Home Planning Hub

Home Planning Tools

Home planner pages are powerful tools for staying organised, on track, and focused on your DIY projects. They help you create and stick to a budget while giving you a clear vision of the bigger picture. With this tool in hand, you can easily create the home of your dreams.

  • Paint Tracker: This handy tool organises your paint colours so you’ll never forget which colour goes where again. The set features a colour planner, whole-house paint colour tracker, and room-by-room colour tracker. As an added bonus, it also has handy labels you can add to left-over paint cans.
  • New Home Planning Set: Congrats on your new home! Let us help you plan and organise everything you need to make your move a breeze. Use this set to evaluate viewings, keep track of inspections, and list new information. The set also includes planning and tracking sheets for all of those pre-move-in DIY tasks. 
  • Comprehensive Renovation Planner: Want to make your house feel like a home?  This helpful tool can help you plan and personalise every room to fit your unique style and needs.  This is the product you need for all your home renovation projects and DIY planning.  It includes vision and assessment pages, project planning pages, budgets and trackers, renovation schedules and more. 
  • Home Project Planner: This is a slightly smaller version of the Comprehensive Home DIY Planner, so it is a good option if you only tackle one or two rooms and not an entire house full of projects.

Colouring Books

Introducing our collection of six Coloring Books, each created to showcase the beauty of specific home styles. Whether you enjoy the calming and refreshing atmosphere of Coastal homes, the modern and bold look of Industrial lofts, the inviting and cosy feel of Farmhouse interiors, the vintage and trendy vibe of Mid-Century Modern houses, the classic and timeless elegance of Traditional homes, or the carefree and unique flair of Boho spaces, our colouring pages are bound to captivate you. Each book contains ten stunning illustrations, portraying indoor and outdoor scenes and providing a fun and relaxing activity suitable for all ages. Grab your favourite home-style colouring book for those days when you need to relax and take a break from all the work.

Housewarming Party Invites

We also have a couple of housewarming party invitation templates available. These templates are editable in Canva, making creating your own housewarming invites super simple. You can print as many as you like.

More Home Planner Tools to come

I am working hard behind the scenes and steadily adding more products to the lineup, such as perfectly curated home dome decor sets, mood board templates, and home décor cheat sheets, which will help you plan and design your perfect space with ease.

Still not sure you need a home planner?

We have completed several home projects, some of which were not planned out beforehand. Through trial and error, we have learned that the projects we plan, list and track run smoothly. Putting things down on paper also gives you an extra sense of accountability. That’s why a project planner can be very helpful for your DIY home projects. It helps you stay on track and within budget. Once you buy it, you can print as many copies as you need for various projects. You can visit The Home Planning Shop on Etsy to purchase your copy today.

I would like to focus on creating more content and offering helpful services for Windmill & Protea as well. Please let me know, in the comments below which products you would like to have and what kind of content you would like to see more of in the future.

Until next time, take care!
