DIY Month Decorating and DIY Projects


Here at Walls and Floors, we've crowned April 2016 as 'DIY Month'. With the kids off school for the first chunk of it (meaning you don't have to worry about school runs) and the daylight lasting longer than ever before (allowing you to rummage around in the shed for the right tool), April provides the perfect opportunity to complete those DIY and decorating projects around the house.

We all have pesky jobs we've been putting off. Whether it's replacing the mouldy tiles in the bathroom, putting together the shelving unit you bought from Argos last summer, fixing the shed roof, or giving the bedroom a new lick of paint. This April, it's time to get them finished!

But don't worry - you're not alone. We're here to help, all throughout April! We've put together an Interior Design Course, to help you build a decor scheme that suits your needs and style. We've amassed dozens of DIY and decorating tips to make your jobs around the house easier. As ever, our resident tiling expert, Paul Collins the Tile Guru, is on hand to help with all your tiling queries. And there's even a competition to win a DIY bundle!
