Yes, we all watch the renovation programs on Netflix, but few of us believe we can actually do what those experts do.
Why are we so pessimistic?
No, not all of us are expert plumbers, carpenters or craftsmen. But in this modern age you’ve got technology on your side too.
We picked four exciting projects many homeowners are bound to think of at some stage. Now you’re going to see you won’t have to spend as much money as you thought, because you’ll be doing much of the work yourself.
Let’s stop watching—it’s time to DO.
Do you dream of having a little extra room so your house feels less cramped? Then simply take life outside.
You can create a new entertainment space by simply laying down some paving. Do this close to the pool, around a tree or next to your barbeque and it will quickly become a favorite place to gather.
Children will take their games outside, your guests can sit outside instead of in the stuffy living room, and family evenings can get a fresh new approach with drinking coffee in the fresh air. It only takes some leveling, a layer of sand and paving bricks, and you’ll have a brand new area to relax in.
It’s the first thing visitors will see, which makes many home owners think they HAVE to hire pros to put up a wooden fence. The truth: it’s not as difficult as you think.
Start by putting the outside poles in place, as well as poles every 8’ if it’s a very large area. Then all it takes is a piece of string tied between the poles and ensuring all the vertical boards are fixed at the same height.
Handy tip: before you start, contact your local municipality to make sure where your property line is.
A renovation project is often meant to upgrade the value of a home, especially if you’re planning on selling the property. If you can improve the kitchen, you’re bound to see more interest in the house as this is an important room for most households.
If your cupboards are sagging you don’t necessarily have to get a handyman. Modern innovations such as heavy lift air bags are strong enough to lift cupboards and keep them in place while you replace rotten parts or level them. Having a safe option when working with heavy objects and appliances solves many renovation challenges, so you don’t have to pay a professional.
Another project you may feel apprehensive about is getting a new wooden floor. Once again, thanks to modern innovation, it’s easier than you think.
You can opt for vinyl or real hardwood floors and many suppliers sell planks with click-and-lock fitting systems. This makes for easy installation. You need to be meticulous when you measure and before you cut them to size, but the rest is easy.
See, it’s easier than you think to give your home a facelift. With modern gadgets and tools, home renovation has become a much easier DIY activity. You’ve got your next weekend’s work cut out for you now.
