When you’re moving into a new home, you want it to look exactly how you want, but renovating can be expensive. Here are some top DIY Tips to help you make the best of your new space without hiring a contractor.
Creating a picture wall doesn’t have to cost the earth, and there are lots of creative ways you can display your favourite photos or prints, all on a budget. For example, why not hang your pictures on a piece of string from a curtain rod? Or you could use a mirror or piece of scrap wallpaper to create a collage.
If you’re worried about taking on a tricky home maintenance task, watch some how-to videos online first. Seeing the job being done step by step can really give you the confidence boost you need to tackle it.
If you have wilting plants or flowers around the house, use plastic straws to keep them upright. This simple trick will give them a little extra life and won’t take up any more room than they already do. Using a hairdryer on crayon marks on walls is also a quick and easy way to remove them. And finally, use a mirror or piece of PVC pipe attached to your gutters to see where it needs cleaning – no more climbing up the ladder blindfolded!
