Katie Barton is a freelance writer specializing in home improvement, home decor, cleaning, and organizing. She lives in an 1800s-style log cabin with her husband and three kids in Ohio. When not writing or catching up on the latest in home decor trends, you can find her with a paintbrush in hand, searching for her next project.


Katie has loved making homes beautiful for as long as she can remember. She started her home improvement journey over a decade ago when she bought an old house to fix up and sell. Since then, she’s worked on hundreds of projects, often chronicling her journey as she goes.


Katie started freelance writing in 2012. In addition to writing for Homedit, she has written for other large publications, including Bob Vila and Cabin Life Magazine.

She has over 15 years of hands-on experience in the flower and home improvement industry working in her family’s greenhouse and hardware stores in southern Ohio.
