Make A Change To Your Home This National Home Improvement Month


This September is National Home Improvement month and as the name suggests, the awareness campaign aims to encourage homeowners across the UK to prioritise their properties and get their projects going.

After research has revealed that a staggering 56% of residents don’t love their home, the British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) has set the challenge to #MakeOneChange – be it big or small. 

Not only can it have a significant impact on your lifestyle, but improving your home can also be fulfilling. So, what are you waiting for? Get involved and take on the challenge this month. 

Here’s our top 3 home improvement ideas to help get you started:

1 – Add colour to your cabinets 

A complete kitchen renovation can be costly and also, isn’t alway necessary. If you’re happy with the existing layout and your units are structurally sound, you can give your kitchen a refresh by adding a splash of paint to your cabinets. This budget friendly option can completely transform your kitchen for less, as long as you take time to do it properly. 

Start by removing any hinges and handles, then give your cabinets a wash to create a smooth canvas. Once they’re dry, sand down and use a primer to cover any imperfections. Ensure your chosen paint is kitchen friendly and apply two or three coats, you may want to use a foam roller for larger surfaces.  

2 – Create a feature wall 

Want to make a serious style statement without the commitment? Feature walls can add vibrancy to a room and create a stunning focal point, but as trends come and go you may want to opt for something more temporary, such as removable wallpaper. 

Not only does it easily peel off when you’re ready for a change, but removable wallpaper also comes in a huge range of patterns and colours so you’re guaranteed to find the perfect design to reflect your style! 

3 – Make a grand entrance 

Whether you frequently entertain guests or are considering selling your home, your front door is one of the first things people will notice when they come to visit and no doubt you’ll want to make a good first impression. 

Placing a couple of plant pots or hanging baskets outside your entranceway can help to make your home more inviting. It’s also a good idea to remove any unwanted weeds to help tidy up your pathway. 

If you’re looking for a new door altogether or would like to invest in some energy-efficient windows in time for winter, contact us today to find out more about our extensive range of quality home improvements.
