Your home requires maintenance to keep it looking in tip-top shape, so when there are jobs around the home that you can do yourself, it makes things a lot easier.
So if you are in need of some useful DIY jobs that you can do at home, here are some useful suggestions.
Paint a Wall
Painting your walls is a lot simpler than you think. You just need a few supplies, such as the wall colour you wish to paint your room, a paint roller, paintbrush, some masking tape, a stirrer and a tray in which you can pour your paint into. You then just need a bit of time and a steady hand to be able to apply the paint to the walls and within no time you have transformed the room in your home into a fresh and vibrant looking space.
Fix a Loose Cupboard Door
At some point there is likely to be a door hinge which is slightly loose that is causing the door on a cupboard to open at a funny angle. Keeping a toolbox at home which can store a variety of different screwdriver fittings is ideal so that you can look in your toolkit and reach for the necessary screwdriver you need. This will enable you to tighten the loose hinges on any doors that are currently not shutting properly. It’s a simple job to do and does not require much time at all.
Cleaning Your Home
Even if you really do not like the idea of cleaning, it does not need to be a laborious task. Simply put some fun music in the background, grab a cloth and a cleaning spray and wipe down any dust along your worktops, along the tables and on the shelves. The more frequently you do it the less you will have to do.
Treat a Squeaky Door
You might have a front door, wardrobe or kitchen cupboard door that keeps making an annoying squeaky noise every time you open it. This can be easily fixed by oiling the door hinges with some olive oil or hairspray. It won’t take long at all and it will resolve the persistent problem without having to remove the hinges and replace them with a new one.
Reupholster Your Furniture
If you have a good bit of furniture at home that simply needs a little TLC, instead of throwing it away why not just upcycle it instead. You can do this by upholstering the cushion of your favourite chair. It will bring a new lease of life to your furniture and will provide a pretty statement piece if you want to add a bit of colour and texture to your room.
Unblocking Your Bathroom Sink
It’s very easy for hair and soap debris to accumulate in your bathroom plughole, especially in the bath or shower. To prevent a blockage from occurring and having to call a professional plumber in, you can get a plunger and try to restore the water flow or simply put some bicarbonate of soda along with vinegar down the plughole. It is a simple home remedy that will help to unclog your bathroom drain and keep it in good condition without doing much.
Lay Your Own Laminate Flooring
If you like carrying out jobs yourself at home and have the patience to piece things together then you could install your own black laminate flooring. All you will need is a few tools so that you can measure the size of the room in which you want to install the flooring and then you are all good to go. The flooring can easily slot into place once you know the precise measurements and have prepared the underlay in which the laminate floor will sit on top of. Choosing a good quality laminate flooring will ensure that it lasts as long as possible and is durable for your everyday house needs.
Grow Your Own Indoor Plants
A good way to add a bit of colour and greenery into your home is to include a variety of indoor house plants or flowers. They will provide a lovely natural fragrance as well as brighten up your home. You can buy your own seeds and then plant them into a pot and watch them gradually flourish into a beautiful house plant or you can buy them already pre planted and just nourish and take care of them. It will only take 5 minutes out of your day to prune and water your houseplants in order to keep them in tip-top condition, so it is definitely one of the easier DIY jobs you can include on your list.
So instead of getting someone else to complete the job why not give these easy DIY jobs around the home a go. You will be pleasantly surprised at how simple they are to complete.
