Love Your Home - Home Improvement Tips To Keep You Busy During Lockdown


Love Your Home

We don’t quite know how long we’re going to be in lockdown, but what we do know is that it’s important that we keep ourselves busy at home.

Let’s not turn into couch potatoes and instead stay fit and stimulated by doing those odd jobs around the house that we’ve been forever putting off.

And to get them done quicker, get the whole family involved. Believe us. You’ll be glad you did as it will make your home a more pleasant place to live.

Not sure what you can do? Hazlemere has three ideas to set your mind in motion:

Patch up paintwork or completely repaint a room

Sitting inside those four walls inevitably leads you to notice things that you would otherwise overlook, such as scuffs, marks, scratches and dents on your painted walls.

If you still have a pot of the original paint still knocking around, dig out a few paintbrushes and carefully touch up the affected areas.

Or you could be more ambitious than that and buy a new paint online so that you can repaint a room.

Colours that are hot this spring include Coral Pink, Biscay Green and a classic Yellow to add a bit of light to your interior.

Tip One

Do some mending and think of things to upcycle

We’re often too lazy to fix certain things that are really simple to mend, without the need for outside help.

Get your backside into gear and sort those little leaks, secure those door and cabinet knobs and fix that cracked grouting. You will save loads of money doing it yourself and can always find a YouTube video for some visual assistance, if you need it.

Then put your thinking cap on and see if there’s any items you can creatively reuse for decorative and functional purposes.

Convert some old wooden crates into shelving units or use any empty jam jars for displaying lights. The only limit is your imagination!

Tip Two

Get your garden looking gorgeous

Thank goodness for our gardens. Make the most of yours to get plenty of fresh air into your lungs.

After the rough winter months, a bit of tidying may be needed first before you can let the kids put up a tent on the grass or do some rock painting, whilst you enjoy a few cold ones in the sunshine.

Give the lawn its first cut of the year, cut back your hedges, pull out any weeds and get planting to bring out some colour once the summer arrives.

Turning to nature and growing things can be great for your wellbeing at a trying time like this.

Tip three
