by - April 06, 2018


Being a homeowner is a bit of a learning curve, isn’t it? Things go wrong and you are forced to think on your feet. You are presented with challenges you never knew existed. After all, when have you ever had to think about fixing creaky floorboards before? Now, this all falls on your shoulders! So, let’s take a look at some of the useful tips and tricks that all homeowners should know when it comes to DIY…
First thing’s first; building your toolbox – The first thing you always need to do is make sure you have the right tools for the job. Every homeowner should have a selection of tools so that they can quickly fix any issues. You can choose the right torque wrench, drills, and so on by reading reviews online. Don’t simply go for the cheapest or first tools you lay your eyes on.
Fixing creaky floorboards – Speaking of creaky floorboards in the introduction, how do you fix them? This is a lot easier than you may think. All you need to do is head to your local DIY store and pick up some wood screws. Once you are finished, you won’t hear even the slightest of creaks.
Removing indentations from your carpet – It can be incredibly annoying when you decide to move your furniture around only to discover that your table has put a massive dent in the carpet, which is now on show to everyone. Luckily, there is an easy way around this. All you need to do is place ice cubes on the dents. As the ice cubes start to melt, the dents will fade away too.
Turn unwanted items into something useful – You need to tap into your creative side if you are going to make the most of DIY projects in your home. There are so many ways you can turn unwanted items into something useful. For example, if you have any hardback books you have not read, you can glue them together, remove the paper inside, and then use this as a cover to hide your WiFi box. Another option is to use unwanted door handles as coat or towel rails. Wine racks can also make great towel holders too.
Stopping condensation – Last but not least, condensation is something that drives a lot of homeowners mad. However, a few simple tweaks can go a long way. This includes installing trickle vents in your windows, avoiding pushing furniture right up against the walls, and not over filling cupboard spaces.
So there you have it: hopefully, you have picked up some useful tips and tricks that can help you when doing DIY around the home. From dealing with creaky floorboards to getting dents out of your carpet, it is a lot easier than you may think.
