14 August 2017
DIY isn’t all about saws and rawl plugs. There are so many other things you can do if you’re just a novice looking to make some home improvements. So with the bank holiday coming up, our inspiration gurus are here to give you some ideas on how to create an even more beautiful home. All you need is the motivation, an extra pair of hands and your local B&M store. Ready? Let’s go!
Refresh your walls with some new wallpaper
And wallpapering isn’t as difficult as you think – if it’s a signature wall you’re doing, there’s no need to call in the experts. Look online for some wallpaper-hanging guides, check out our handy wallpaper calculator, get a helper and off you go!
Update your light shades
Change your flooring
Laminate flooring can change the whole look of a room. It looks great, is easy to clean and is a great alternative to planks, tiles and lino. Our DIY team gives laying down laminate flooring a difficulty rating of medium, so will suit DIY enthusiasts. If you’re new to the whole scene, we recommend you rope someone in who has done this kind of thing before. The Ashdown Oak Effect Laminate Flooring gives a matte finish and is suitable for underfloor heating and has bevelled edges on all four sides.
Fit the shelving
Step up security
Autumn is nearly here and it might be a good time to do a recce of the home before we’re plunged into darkness. This Twin Head Solar Powered Security Light might be getting wired up to the front and back of our homes as a burglar deterrent - and at £11.99 reduced from £17.99, who’s to argue?
Start a winter herb garden
