|Summer is just around the corner and lots of people will want to take advantage of the dry and warm weather in order to make some home improvements, whether it is in the garden or inside.
With the stalling house market and falling house prices, more and more people are finding that it makes more sense to improve their homes rather than fork out the expense of moving. Making home improvements can be expensive but by doing some research before you buy you’ll find all of the materials you need for your project and may even save a small fortune in the process.
If you are planning on making some big changes; such as updating your bathroom, it is worth looking online for
discount codes and vouchers for all the big DIY chain stores.
You can also do yourself a favour by browsing online before hitting the shops as you may find that you come across some great vouchers and avoid impulse buying.
||Think about whether you really need to buy the tools you want or whether you could borrow them form a
neighbour or friend - meaning more money to spend on decoration and furnishings.
If gardening is a particular hobby then you could save money by taking a cutting from a friend or family member of a plant you like. Buying seeds rather than fully grown plants will also help to reduce costs.
Don't be tempted to attempt jobs such as electrics or plumbing yourself unless you are fully qualified. This can be dangerous and it could actually invalidate your home insurance policy, leaving you liable for any damage.
Moneysupermarket.com now has a vouchers channel and
they regularly host vouchers for DIY chains such as
B&Q vouchers. These vouchers entitle the holder to money off purchases both online with voucher codes and in store using printable vouchers.
