DIY Projects you can try during lockdown
With the effects of the coronavirus pandemic having led the UK government to impose nationwide restrictions on travel & social events, many homeowners across the country are using the time to renovate and create a comfortable environment which they can enjoy through the winter and beyond. We’ve put together a short list of lockdown DIY projects which you can try that could help bring a fresh new feel to your home.
Add some colour to your walls
One of the easiest and most cost effective DIY projects that you can undertake this year, is home painting and decorating. Whether it’s contained to one room or a full domestic makeover, a little colour really can make a big difference to your home living space.
A winter 2021 interior trend which we love is warm, earthy spice tones and natural materials, which bring a wonderfully homely feel to any area and are perfect decorating ideas for the changing seasons ahead.
Clear out your loft space
Christmas launched earlier than ever last year, with more and more people opting to put their decorations up pre-December and get in on the Christmas spirit. Now it’s time to put all of that away, it’s also the perfect time for a loft clearance project and disposing of all of the unwanted items and clutter accumulated over the years.
Depending on how much rubbish you’re dealing with, it may be handy to utilise a skip hire specialist, in order to make help with your waste management needs and avoid frequent journeys to and from your local tip.
Upcycle old furniture
Do you have an old piece of furniture that could use some love? Furniture upcycling is a great home DIY idea for anyone who is looking for a lockdown project. It could be as simple as painting a worn chest of drawers, or even something slightly more complex, turning one piece of furniture into something entirely new.

Create a whole new room
Kitchen and bathroom remodelling are some of the most common DIY projects for UK homeowners, particularly over the past 6 months. While these are more time consuming renovation projects which require a lot of labour, the end result can bring a new lease of life to your property.
Bathroom & kitchen renovation can both generate significant amounts of waste, which you won’t want lying around the house for long. As with clearing your loft space, it’s definitely worth getting in touch with a skip hire expert to discuss which size and option could be right for you.
