Best of Home Buddies Renovations

With billions of people staying at home, the need for social media communities and connections has significantly increased. Facebook has become more than just a messaging and socializing platform. It built life-changing communities and interactions that helped us get through the series of lockdowns.

Among the communities that sparked motivations and creativity for home improvement is Home Buddies, Facebook group which has over 2.7 million members to date. This online community is composed of homeowners from different walks of life, from owning or renting cozy condos to apartments with wide living spaces and grand mansions in high-end villages.

While browsing for home inspirations, we’ve rounded up the best before-and-after-looks of home improvement stories from your kapitbahays.
