DIY Hacks for Any Home

0 Comments Home   (on 28-Jan-2018 09:38 AM)

Our homes are, without a doubt, the most important places in our lives. They’re where we eat and sleep, where we entertain and learn, where we build and store memories. Though they might well be four walls and a roof, they’re so much more than that to us.


It’s why the old idiom ‘an Englishman’s home is his castle’ rings so true, and why every year so many of us go out of our way to improve our homes in millions of tiny little ways. We’re talking about DIY, and with a new year finally with us, we’re all thinking about ways we can improve our homes.


From big jobs which add significant value to your home to little changes to improve your quality of life, DIY can be anything you want it to be.


Here at Trago Mills, we work tirelessly to bring you the products you need to improve your home. Our range of DIY tools and equipment is unbeatable, but if you’re short of ideas on how to improve your home, we’ve got a few quick DIY hacks you can use to transform your home. Let’s go!


Refresh any old furniture


The modern age is all about disposability. We buy, we use and we throw away. It’s a common cycle which sees countless tons of perfectly functional furniture sent to the nearest scrap heap, but it doesn’t have to be that way.


For example, did you know that any wooden furniture, even IKEA furniture, can be renovated and transformed to suit any décor? Take a block and some sanding paper (or use a power sander) and get to work stripping away old paint, scratches, dings and whatever else you don’t like about your furniture.


From there, you can decorate your furniture how you please. Our range of interior woodcare and varnish means that whatever style you love, you can bring it to life in your home. Whether that’s natural stains or bright paints is up to you, but compared to the cost and effort of buying entirely new furniture, it’s a no-brainer.


Hang pictures effortlessly


Hanging pictures is something that few of us like doing. It’s a fiddly, messy job which can ruin your walls if you’re not careful. For those that rent their property, it’s often not even possible to hang your own pictures, paintings and frames without violating your lease!


That’s why we stock Command’s range of damage-free picture hanging strips. Designed to adhere strongly to your walls and remove easily when the time comes, they can support even the biggest frames. That’s not their only advantage though, because picture hanging strips ensure your pictures won’t move if they’re bumped and sit flush to the wall, for a beautiful, gallery-style finish for only a few quid!


Give yourself more kitchen space


No matter how large our kitchens are, they also seem to be at bursting point. From pots and pans to jars, plates, cutlery, appliances and more, space disappears quickly in the kitchen.


So why not expand your space with some beautiful, intelligently located shelves? Our range of shelving is quite comprehensive, and our range of floating shelves make for a perfect addition to any kitchen, where you can store anything from your plates to your fanciest ingredients. The choice is yours!


Installing new shelves is a job which can be completed in less than an hour and can really add to a space. Whichever shelves you opt for though, we think you’ll be delighted by the results of this quick and simple job.
