Will You #MakeOneChange For National Home Improvement Month?


Unless you’ve seen mention of it in the press, you may not be aware that it’s National Home Improvement Month in the UK. 

Flush Casement Windows on Modern Property

The campaign, which takes place every year, urges householders to #MakeOneChange to their property, no matter how big or small that change may be. 

You can read all about it here. 

So, what home improvement project will you embark upon? If you need some ideas of what you could do, Visual can offer three suggestions:

Kitchen Makeover

The kitchen has taken over from the traditional living area as the foremost area of the house. This makes it a logical target for improvement. 

There are limitless possibilities, including having your kitchen extended or simply just enhancing your existing kitchen space. 

If you opt for the latter, low-cost option, you can quickly change its look just by modernising your kitchen cabinets with a repaint or refacing. Finish it off by installing some new appliances. 

Removable Wallpaper

No, you haven’t read that wrong. There is such a thing as removable wallpaper!

Instead of making a long-term commitment to a wallpaper design that you might quickly grow tired of, use a removable wallpaper that you can easily peel off once you fancy a change. 

This self-adhesive wall covering won’t cause any damage to your walls when removed and is repositionable post-application. 

If you live in rented accommodation, removable wallpaper lets you put your own stamp on a place without upsetting your landlord.

Smarten Your Exterior

They say that you can always tell a lot about a home from how it looks on the outside – first impressions are everything. 

Any overgrown vegetation should be attended to and your driveway needs to be power washed to leave the outside in pristine condition. 

Just as important is your front door. If it’s showing signs of wear and tear, either repaint the door (if it’s wooden) or buy a brand-new door, preferably a UPVC or composite door as they’re both very low-maintenance. 

Replacement doors are one of many home improvement products that we specialise in at ERG. You can view our full range of replacement doors here
