With Brits facing an extended period of enforced lockdown to help combat the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s understandable that many people will be considering doing some DIY while they’re spending so much time at home.
House Beautiful recently shared the findings of research by MyJobQuote, which shared the top home improvement projects we’re planning to tackle during this period.
Based on searches on the site, making a DIY table is at the top of the list, followed by reupholstering furniture and painting. DIY flooring, meanwhile, came in at seventh place.
While it might be tempting to try to get on top of jobs around the home, it’s important to know your DIY limits too. The survey found that some 36 per cent of homeowners admitted to having a DIY disaster in the past, which means some of us may bite off more than we can chew.
If you’re considering revamping your wood flooring, consider whether you have the tools and know-how to do a good job. If you aren’t sure that you’ll get the desired finished result, you could be better off waiting until lockdown is lifted and you’re able to get help from floor sanding specialists, for instance.
If you’re not sure whether solid wood flooring is for you, consider the benefits of having this type of flooring in your home.
Business Matters Magazine recently pointed out that it’s a beautiful and elegant flooring solution, not to mention one that is easy to clean and maintain.
The news provider added that wood is a durable material, which means that a solid wood floor is one that will last you for many years to come if you look after it properly.
