3 Easy DIY Ideas That Will Improve Your Home


You should never rest on your laurels where your home is concerned. On a regular basis, you should have a good look around, inside and out, to see what you can enhance and repair to make it a nicer place to live. 

Timber Sash Windows

There will be something that can be done, and you may well find things that you can do yourself. 

Summer is always a very popular time to take on some DIY. You don’t have an excuse not to when the weather is good! 

We have created a DIY to-do list for you, that we know will improve any home, not least, yours:

Repaint or reface cabinets

If they remain strong enough, there is no need for a complete overhaul of your kitchen and bathroom cabinets when they lack visual appeal.

They could always be repainted with a new colour, or you could reface their surface for the same purpose, and also remove and update the current hardware affixed to them. 

Once done, they will refresh your entire kitchen or bathroom, and it will hardly cost you anything to do it. Reusing old cabinets is also very sustainable-minded.

Add a gallery to a wall

Does a prominent wall in your living area look too bare? A gallery of photographs on it will liven it up and they can have a theme of your choice. 

It could consist of a series of family photos, or snaps that you have taken when on holiday. If you love your sport or music, why not hang up images of a favourite player or album. 

Don’t use one standard frame size and colour. Use a mixture of them to make the wall gallery look more interesting. 

Put any pallets to use

Don’t leave out your garden. It might need just as much attention as the inside of your house. 

On a small budget? Any pallets that you have lying around could be upcycled for some type of garden use. 

Maybe convert them into vertical planters so that you can grow plants in your garden upwards, ideal if your garden is on the small side. Or if you want some more garden seating, make a wooden bench with them, covered with some padded cushions to ensure you of comfort.
