DIY Network's half-hour special Hot List: Home Upgrades goes both indoors and outdoors to tackle the best projects that homeowners can do themselves. Host Jay Baker shows homeowners how to upgrade their homes to not only make them more efficient and dramatic, but also to see how relatively small projects can give your home a major boost on your return on investment. Inside, we'll look at the installation of a new faucet, an energy-saving thermostat, cost-effective light bulbs, fan installation and even an easy backsplash. Outdoors, Jay will show how to install a rain barrel, outdoor pavers and dramatic lighting to a patio area.
Whether it's for upgrading bedrooms, basements, kitchens or baths, let DIY be your resource for practical how-to information.
