The last Bank Holiday of May is just around the corner, so, what do you have planned? Or, more importantly, what have you had planned for you?! For many of us the extra day off work a Bank Holiday brings means only one thing… DIY!
From simple gardening jobs to major renovation projects, we seem to see our bank holidays as an opportunity to work on our homes rather than use this bonus time off for what it’s intended, a holiday! Before you do anything make sure you have local skip hire sorted and everything you need to get started!
If you are thinking of cracking on with household improvements you’ve been putting off this May 29th, here are a few tips on ‘doing up’ your home this weekend;
Be realistic, possibly our favourite tip, if in doubt, get the professionals out… We’ve all been guilty of biting off more than we can chew, if your project requires aerobatics to paint the ceiling or you’ve never plastered a wall before, stick with the people who know what they’re doing!
Ask for help! Don’t get stuck on a roof/up a ladder/drill through a water pipe all because you’re too proud to ask a friend or neighbour for their help/advice
Google/YouTube it, there are mountains of tutorials available on t’internet, make good use of them. It’s surprising how many top tips and advice you can come across
See it through, one of the major issues with starting a DIY project is not finishing it. Who hasn’t started painting the hall, got distracted and lived with a half-painted wall for 6-months? Ok, maybe just me…
Reward yourself! Another beauty, if you do work your socks off on this most precious of weekends, make sure you treat yourself to a little something at the end of it, you’re worth it!
