Whilst it’s colder outside why not do some indoor jobs you may have been putting off; then come spring you’ll be finished indoors and able to tackle the outdoor jobs. Keep your winter weekends busy with these DIY weekend jobs.
Refresh the Walls
Giving the walls a fresh coat of paint or wallpaper can really help bring a room back to life. Whether you’re just touching up or going for a complete change, it can give the room a new lease of life. For a full refresh, sand the walls back using a wall sander before plastering and applying fresh paint.
If you have old wallpaper needing removal, it is easier to remove with a wallpaper stripper than to attempt the process by hand. You can then replace with fresh wallpaper or change to paint if you desire.
If your carpets are looking a bit worse for wear, winter is a great time to give them a good clean or even replace them. For those which are well past their sell by date you may want to opt for new carpet all together; new fluffy carpets will be great for winter. For those that only need a little refresh, you’ll be amazed what a good carpet cleaner can do! It can help your sorry looking carpets appear as good as new.
For other flooring, you can restore them using a floor and edge sander. With a floor sander you can get a professional finish to your hardwood floors. Giving them a little TLC can help to liven up the room and give it a fresh look.
Lastly, you can update your doors; both interior doors and exterior doors. Giving them a fresh coat of paint can work wonders. For a new look entirely you can replace doors; you’ll be surprised how much of a difference this can make to the entire house.
