It’s unusual for us to have to invest a lot time in your home, but let’s welcome it and keep ourselves occupied whilst we’re inside as much as we potentially can.
We tell you what would be a good thing to do with the time is all those little bits of DIY you haven’t had a chance to sort because of your generally hectic way of life.
There’s always something that requires doing and enlisting some assistance from fellow relative will get those home chores completed more quickly.
You will have a much better home afterwards and it will count as a kind of exercise. Add these three DIY jobs to your ‘to-do’ list and tick them off:
Treat a space to a fresh lick of paint or repaint it completely
Provide your interior your concentrated attention and see if there are any littles paintwork that could do with a fresh application of paint. It will be a quick task and make a difference. Go the entire hog and entirely repaint a room in a brand new colour, purchasing it online.
For a small space, utilize a pale or light colour as it will make the space feel bigger than it really is.
If you desire a spring-like colour, opt for a yellow or green shade (how about sage or olive green?). To mix colours, paint a door in one colour and your skirting board in another.
Use a stain blocker to the newly layered walls to stop any possibility of water damage.
Do some repairing and some up-cycling
You can’t call someone out to fix anything in your home at the moment, so it’s up to you to do it, which will conserve you cash and offer you a sensation of achievement.
Toolbox ready for tightening up any loose handles and pulls on your drawers and cabinets, correcting broken fence panels in the garden and re-grouting any locations where the current grouting is coming away.
After fixing, think of how you can recycle any old products you have lying around to give them a new purpose.
Old books could be converted into a shelf option or reupholster an old chair with an unused roll of fabric to make it look new again.
Get your garden spring/ summer-ready
A minimum of while in lockdown the weather condition is enhancing and you should take in as much of it as you can in your garden.
If your garden has been unblemished since last year, don your gardening gloves and trim the yard, remove any weeds, cut back your bushes, strim and do some planting to provide it colour, come summer.
Why not then take the inside outdoors and make your garden your main living area for when conditions permit.
Motivate the kids to move their dens from the within to the outside of your home and put out your garden furnishings so that you can remain in the sun– there’s got to be some benefits to lockdown!
