Easter weekend is coming up and while we all need a good break there are also all those jobs around the house that never get done and many UK householders will be get their DIY on!
Instead of focussing on the inside, why not try a few quick and easy outside jobs that will make a big difference to how you, and others, approach your house in Spring?
It’s all too easy to forget the outside of your house when you’re keen to paint a hallway or retile a bathroom but those are the jobs that can create huge problems for you further down the line. Have a look at roof tiles, guttering and chimneys.
Last week we blogged about cleaning the grout in tiles and this week we’re aiming at the front door!
Your front door is really important. It’s the first place you have interaction with visitors to your house and a lot of front doors just let the side down big time!
Make it a project. Get it off its hinges and sand down that paintwork or scrub that UPVc with a good cleaner that isn’t too abrasive. Clean the handles, letterbox and locks by washing them out with soft cloths. Give brass fittings a good polish and wipe away all the spider webs and general grime that collects in the door seals.
Replace door seals and, if you’ve changed the door colour with a lick of paint, you might want to install different handles, letterbox and lock covers.
There are bound to be loads of good Easter deals in the DIY stores this Easter so plan carefully, get the bargains and don your work clothes! (If the weather’s good you might even fit in a BBQ!)
We’ve loads of ideas that will quickly transform your home but we’d like to hear what you’ve got in mind – comments here please!
