The Great British Bake Off

In recent years, baking has become all the rage in this country! First there was the gradual increase in popularity of “cupcakes” – which we think used to be called Fairy Cakes in our youth! At DIY Homefit we first noticed the cup cakes phenomenon back in 2008, when the Press reported on Heidi Klum’s birthday gift to Victoria Beckham of a year’s supply of cup cakes.

A Moving Story

Oh the stress of moving house!  At DIY Homefit we know that only too well! First of all you spend ages looking round for a potential new home.  Then once you find the perfect combination, you then can’t progress further with it until you have sold your property.  In the meantime someone else may beat you to it and you’re back to square one!

Empty Nest?

At this time of year you may well have a son or daughter going off to Uni for the first time? At DIY Homefit we understand what a major event this is.  Not just the fact that they are going , but all the preparations leading up to their departure. There are so many things to be bought, organised and sorted – and then getting them into the car is a whole new story in itself!

A Kitchen To Shake For!

At DIY Homefit we have recently been spending some time surfing the internet to find out more about the latest trends in kitchens. One of the most popular things at the moment is for kitchens to incorporate a dining or living area into the kitchen space. As part of this, kitchen cabinets are tending to look more like fine bespoke furniture rather than just kitchen cabinets, and kitchen counters and islands are often functioning as dining tables as well as preparation areas.

A Tardis for your Home!

Are you watching Dr Who? We are at DIY Homefit! What do you think of the new Doctor? The show has been through so many changes over the years with so many different Doctors, but the one thing that remains constant is the Tardis. It never ceases to amaze us the way it’s so small on the outside yet massive inside.

Journey to a New Kitchen

Many people reading this will be new to the concept of replacement kitchen doors, so we wanted to explain the process in a little more detail.  Say you’ve decided to undertake kitchen refurbishment using replacement kitchen doors rather than new kitchen cabinets – how exactly do you get started?

Can DIY kitchens be quality kitchens

In our last blog we dared to mention Christmas and encouraged you to consider treating yourself to a new kitchen in time for the big day.  We supply a comprehensive range of replacement kitchen doors, worktops, and storage solutions in a wide range of finishes that will totally transform your kitchen.  As you can see from the examples here, the results of such a kitchen refurbishment are simply stunning!

Countdown To Christmas

Please don’t hate us for the title!  We know that Christmas is probably the last thing you want to be thinking about whilst trying to get everything ready for the children going back to school.  But bear with us for a few minutes and maybe this Christmas will turn out to be your best ever …..

Neutral Bedrooms

Doing some research on what styles are popular in bedrooms this year, we were delighted to see from various sources that neutral colours are very much trending at the moment! Whether it’s all-white or cream or beige or grey, the emphasis is on subtle colours and clean lines. Alongside the colour scheme there is an increasing preference for the minimalistic look, so that your bedroom is calm, peaceful and uncluttered from messy reminders of day to day life.

Trending Now

As we all know kitchens are definitely the heart of most homes and probably the busiest when cooking, entertaining and doing children’s homework, which is why DIY Homefit understand that a kitchen needs to be functional and look its best. Bringing a tired kitchen into the 21st century doesn’t have to cost the world either. New made to measure replacement kitchen doors can make a huge difference to a kitchen, meaning you can change your kitchen as often as your taste changes, and let’s face it tastes can change depending on what’s popular at the moment.
