Stuck At Home? Maybe It’s Time For Some DIY
Lockdown is starting to get annoying now.
Sure, the shops are starting to open but there are still issues when going out and about and even with things slowly opening a lot of people don’t want to risk catching Covid-19.
This means more time spent at home.
However, if you’re spending time at home you’ll want to ensure you spend time in a place you enjoy.
A place that makes you feel comfortable to relax and chill out.
Not a place where you feel uneasy or uncomfortable. You need to make that house a home.
What better way than with DIY. Especially if you’ve got more time on your hands than usual.
Here are some tips and tricks, things you can do to your home to make it a little better for you. Good luck!
If you’re an environmentalist or someone who cares about the planet and wants to make a bit of a difference, then this is a great way to make a mark.
It’s all about using less energy in your home. If you’re thinking about this route then spray foam insulation can be a good place to start.
You might want to offset your carbon footprint through your energy provider, or you might want to go green.
Solar panels can help you go green, by ensuring more energy you use is renewable
Some of this isn’t really doing it yourself, but there are lots of ways you really can do it yourself in your own home.
Major projects like this can be undertaken by yourself if you put the time into learning it, and at the moment, a lot of people have way more time.
The Kids Rooms
They might be home from school so it’s a great way to get them involved in the change of their room.
This can range from a simple splash of new paint all the way to a complete remodel.
New beds, furniture, and fixtures can change it around completely.
Having their input will be important to them, but getting them to help might teach them some great life skills.
Change Things Around
Sometimes you don’t have to mess with paint. You can just change the layout of the rooms around.
This might mean moving the sofa from one wall to another. Or changing where the TV is.
It might mean shifting the bed and wardrobe in your bedroom.
They sound like little, insignificant things but in reality, they make a huge difference.
Stuck At Home: Get Into The Garden
A garden project is a brilliant way to get something done so you can enjoy it more. You might start with painting the fence.
You could be creating a greenhouse area for plants or maybe you’re making a decking area to enjoy some sunbathing.
Whatever you’re doing, consider involving the kids in the project. It’ll give them something to be a part of and keep them busy too.
A break from the norm which can become quite tedious at the moment.
You may need good weather for it, but if you get the chance, changing the garden is an easy win.
