Home renovation projects that you really can DIY...

DIY you can do with Wooden Shutters

Renovating the home can seem like a daunting challenge to many but there are some jobs that really are quite easy if you put your mind to it. Doing it yourself can not only save you money but also give you a huge sense of achievement knowing that you have created something beautiful in your home and in many cases, added value along the way.

Here are a few home improvements that we feel are easy enough to tackle yourself and our suggestions of projects that would be better suited to the professionals.

  • Fitting Shutters: This might sound way out of your comfort zone but fitting Wooden Plantation Shutters is actually as straightforward as putting up a shelf. They have become a popular and highly ought after alternative to curtains or blinds as a fashionable and functional interior choice to dress a window. Most come with a detailed measuring and fitting guide for easy installation and offer many different wood finishes, colours and styles so can be customised to suit your existing décor.

  • Insulting the loft – Grab a mate and a calculator and you can easily work out how much insulation you will require to kit out your loft. The mate might be helpful as insulation rolls can be pretty big, but fitting insulation isn’t too time-consuming and will help keep your heating bills down during the winter months.

  • Laying flooring – Make sure the floor space you wish to transform is flat and dry and remove all remnants of the old flooring before you start. Perhaps opt for laminate flooring tiles or wood replica floorboards that slot together and start with a smaller room, such as the downstairs loo or bathroom, for practice. Follow the installation guide and you’ll have a finished result that Nick Knowles would be proud of. 


Home improvement jobs to avoid: 

  • Building works
  • Electrical works
  • Re-plumbing the bathroom. 

These would be better suited to a professional as rectifying your DIY disasters could be very costly.

Our Classic Shutters are an engineered product made using an MDF outer and a polymer coating. This is a wood product created by breaking down timber into a powder, which is mixed with wax and resin and then formed into panels by applying high temperature and pressure. It is a building material similar in application to plywood but made up of separated fibres, not wood veneers. The panels of the shutter are manufactured to the highest standards using mortise and tenon joints to ensure prolonged quality and durability, and engineered laminated stiles to prevent warping.

They are great if you have pets or small children and they do not mark or dent as easy as lighter materials and they create a pleasant aesthetic appearance from both the inside and the outside of the property.

The Classic range is a great all rounder and the perfect choice if you require a fashionable Plantation Shutter along with affordability.

It can save money and is also very satisfying to sit back once completed and enjoy the fruit of your own labour for years to come. However, if not planned properly it could end in disaster. Here are a few tips to help create a DIY design success...

Knowledge is power - To achieve the perfect design you need to arm yourself with enough knowledge to ensure the end result is one that you are proud of and want to show off. The only way to gain this knowledge in by researching into various techniques, be it paint styles, feature walls, floor finishes or window treatments. Fill your head with lots of inspirational ideas which you can source online, from Home Decor Magazines or from watching your favourite interior show on TV. From here you can make an informed design decision on the look that you want for your home.

Know yourself - Think about how you are as a person and how you live your life then try to fit your interior to your character and that of your family. For example, if you have a brood of mini tornados tearing around your home causing havoc and mess in their wake then opting for a light carpet might not be the best choice. Laminate floor or floorboards would probably be more suited. Similarly if your trying to create a tranquil and calming environment where you can relax and read a good book then Wooden Shutters could present the perfect solution as the slats can be positioned in such a way to control the amount of natural light that enters the room. 

Don’t skimp on materials - When you're tackling a DIY project, it can be tempting to try to minimise cost - but that old saying "you get what you pay for" holds true when it comes to the tools and supplies you'll be working with. So if you are going to tackle a DIY project it is worth investing in quality tools and materials. Selecting a window treatment specialist or reputable flooring supplier to purchase your materials will ensure you’re getting a premium product manufactured to the highest standards. 

Know when to call in the professional - This should be your first concern before you tackle that “simple” project on your own. What seems like an easy fix could leave you scratching your head. In general, we would suggest structural changes, electrical work, plumbing, roofing and replacing windows are tasks best left to the pros. Of course, only you know what you’re comfortable with and our Wooden Shutters are designed to be easy to install with our detailed measuring and fitting guide enabling you to fit them yourself. However we are always on hand to help you out should you feel their installation is beyond your DIY capability.
