Hang New Curtains (Or Blinds!)

 

It’s a job that many of us put off but hanging your new curtains that have been sitting in the corner of the room will bring you peace of mind, privacy and add a whole new lease of life in the space.


If you have yet to pick your curtains, why not choose from our expansive curtain range? Offering curtains for your living room or kids room, we’ve got options for any decor project.


Perhaps you prefer blinds... (we know we’re biased in this department) we pride ourselves on our high quality blinds that come with video or printed instructions on how to fit them yourself.


Impress your family and friends with a brand new set of blinds for your home. Our wooden blinds are a great versatile choice if you are looking to get started.

Upgrade To Smart Blinds


Whilst we’re on the topic of window coverings, we’ve got the perfect project if you are looking to take your bank holiday DIY project to the next level: Smart blinds!


Our smart hub blinds allow you to control your blinds at the touch of button on your smartphone or tablet, ensuring you have 100% control, wherever you are.


You can integrate the Smart Hub with Amazon Alexa and Google Home and open and close your blinds using your voice. The Smart Hub will work with existing One Touch blinds, so you can purchase the Hub separately if you previously bought electric remote control roller blinds from us.

Create A Gallery Wall

 

For a fun, family friendly DIY project, purchase a set of frames, print out your favourite family photos and create a gallery wall! Gallery walls are a popular Pinterest project that add a feature to your home but also brings warmth in through beautiful memories.


Print out your photos in black and white or colour, depending on your colour scheme, and purchase frames to match your decor. Map out your frames using masking tape and once you are happy with the layout, go ahead and hang them on the wall. If you aren’t sure about the design or would prefer some versatility, opt for Command Strips as they offer a non-permanent solution for rented homes or temporary spaces.

Wallpaper The Bathroom


Wallpaper in bathrooms is a popular home interior trend that is still going strong in 2020. Whilst tiles and paint are a timeless choice, wallpaper allows you to add a bit of extra ‘umph’ into your bathroom or ensuite and is guaranteed to make a statement.

As bathrooms are usually a smaller room, wallpapering should be fairly easy and with plenty of DIY guides available online, it’s a project that will have an impact on the decor of your home and space

If you aren’t sure about wallpapering your bathroom but like the idea of adding statement features, you can also hang statement bathroom blinds, which will have a similar effect!

Upcycle A Piece Of Old Furniture

 

Bringing an old piece of furniture back to life will allow you to elongate the lifespan of it. Whether it’s a chest of drawers or an old chair, why not bring it back to life with a fresh lick of paint, varnish or perhaps some new handles?

 

Perhaps you don’t have space for the chest of drawers in the house, you can always turn it into a planter in the garden, use it as a storage unit in the garage or turn it into a toy box for the kids.
