The DIY Challenge!

As Cambridge University’s Peterhouse College win the latest series of University Challenge, is it time for a little challenge in your life?  If you’re anything like us at DIY Homefit, you may struggle to answer some of the University Challenge questions but don’t let that put you off pushing yourself in a different direction.  

Eating the Elephant one bite at a time

If like some of us at DIY Homefit you are old enough to remember the 1980’s craze for time management training you will be very familiar with the above phrase!  It is also still widely used today.  If not, let us explain – and don’t worry: no elephants (or any other animals for that matter!) have been harmed in the creation of this article!

DIY’s Got Talent?!

Here we go again!  Another round of Britain’s Got Talent hits our screens and it seems the nation divides into two camps – love it or hate it – with perhaps an additional small minority who haven’t a clue about the very existence of “BGT”!  

The mysterious case of the handleless kitchen doors

Calling all you amateur sleuths out there! You may have noticed over the past four or five years a strange phenomenon taking place in a kitchen near you?  Handles are gradually disappearing!  More and more kitchens seem to be missing them.  We have heard reports of many kitchen cupboards and built in appliances now having a totally smooth finish.  So why are more and more people choosing handleless kitchen doors?

The Icing on the Cake!

One of the advantages of sourcing your kitchen from an independent supplier such as DIY Homefit is that you can purchase as much or as little as you need.  You are not tied in to the recommendations of your kitchen fitter and can mix and match as much as you like.  It’s perfectly possible to do a kitchen refurbishment in stages if you don’t want the disruption and financial commitment of getting everything done at once.  

Easter Eggstravaganza!

Easter is almost upon us and at DIY Homefit we love the tradition of an Easter Egg Hunt! For very young children, eggs hidden around the home and garden in places that are not too difficult to find works well.  Older children may enjoy the greater challenge of a treasure hunt with clues as to where to find the eggs.   

Not just bedroom and kitchen doors!

As you are aware, DIY Homefit supplies bespoke furniture to fit your home. Our specialisms are kitchen cupboard replacement and designer wardrobe solutions … but the story doesn’t end there!  In this article we take a look at some other areas of the home where you can use our products effectively.

Let There be Light!

At last the mornings are getting lighter and the spring sun is beginning to stream through our windows. This can fill us with a renewed sense of optimism and determination. (Yes and also one of shame as all the dirty streaks on the windows are shown in their full glory!) It can set us thinking about the home improvements we want to do this year and makes us want to get on with things.

A Summer of Sport

So another round of the Six Nations begins! If you are a rugby fan it can never come too soon! If not, you’re probably thinking “not again! The last one has only just finished!!”

Take Good Care of Yourself!

In this article we give you our Top Ten Tips for keeping your bespoke furniture in tip top condition. There’s no point spending time and effort on a kitchen refurbishment if you don’t then take good care of it afterwards.
