Never underestimate the power and importance of creativity. While sometimes doing what’s familiar works best, it is important to remember that thinking outside the box is just as important (if not more important) than simply following procedure. After all, new problems require new solutions, and in the field of Hardware / DIY, creativity is paramount to success.

International Creativity Month serves as a reminder to everyone on the power of creativity and innovation. Some of us work every day in fields that require us to be creative and not everyone is an artist or a designer, but it’s also true that everyone could benefit from being a bit more creative when it comes to DIY around the house.

This month at Expert Hardware we have decided to showcase various creative DIY tips to help tap into your creative side. Creativity Month is about celebrating those visionaries as well as inspiring yourself, and seeing what you can produce to celebrate your own internal creativity.
