For many of us, the majority of our time will be spent inside. Why not begin the new season by tackling those DIY projects you have been holding off!
The handyman jobs
Now is a great time to tackle those niggly little things you’ve been meaning to get around to. Is there a wobbly door handle, leaky taps, a broken drawer? Getting these little jobs done is not only incredibly satisfying but is also cheap and easy. A simple online search will lead you to hundreds of tips and tricks on how to complete these simple tasks!
Organise Organise Organise!
Although it’s a lot easier said than done, organising is a great way to freshen up your home in time for the new season. What’s better than a neat and clean space? Tackle those unorganised kitchen cupboards and messy closet... purge! Get rid of everything you don’t need, give clothes you don’t wear to charity and upcycle the rest!
Give your walls some attention
Something as small as straightening or re-doing your wall hangings can make a surprising difference to your home. Are there picture frames that need hanging? Artwork that needs updating? Why not make a start by hanging them up yourself? A lick of paint is also a great way to freshen up your home interior. Areas such as windowpanes, door frames and stair handles tend to become rusty and need touch-ups to stay pristine and in the best condition. You would be surprised what a fresh coat of paint can do!
Clean your lights!
Did you know that sometimes the reason for bad lighting isn’t a dead lightbulb but dirt! Unplug your light, turn switches off and get cleaning! Clean your lampshades or statement light pieces with a dry microfibre cloth.
Prep your planters
Gather and clean your planters, both big and small so they are ready for planting as the new season arrives. Throw out any that have broken and look out for any drainage holes. Don’t have a planter? Build one! One of the most fulfilling projects to get involved with is gardening. Gardens are a source of beautiful flowers, vegetables and plants and by nurturing your plants you can get involved in a project that gives back as much as you give! A big garden isn’t needed, in fact, a planter can be built from basic scrap materials. Old containers can even be upcycled and used as plant pots, all you need is your imagination and a quick google search where you will find a huge array of garden DIYers!
