Looking for ways to give your home an uplift without breaking the bank during the lockdown? Replace old and worn ironmongery with a shiny, brand-new one! Believe me when I say that this is the easiest way to give your home a fresh new look by only changing a few small details.
But what is ironmongery? Ironmongery is the hardware you have all over your home that goes unnoticed – door handles, hinges, locks, and more. It’s funny how much we use these little pieces of ironmongery in our day-to-day lives but don’t pay much attention to them until something doesn’t work properly… Am I right?
Ironmongery Experts, an architectural ironmongery business, has shared the best DIY projects to complete during the lockdown, all centered around ironmongery. Here are some of my favorite projects that you can complete to improve the look and feel of your home.
1. Improve your home’s curb appeal.
Emma Plus Three highlights the importance of ensuring that your home’s exterior is welcoming and inviting to guests and visitors. Even though you shouldn’t have anyone who is not your regular housemate around, you can still give your entrance a bit of uplift so that you can impress your visitors when they are allowed to visit.
This includes mowing your lawn, fixing the wooden gate and changing up the ironmongery in front of your home – house number, letter plate or letter box and so on.
2. All about your front door.
Entrance doors are one of the most important parts of any home – it’s not only your main point of entrance but it’s also part of the exterior of your home thus, a sturdy and stylish front door is required to protect you and your belongings whilst enhancing the appearance of the exterior of your home.
So, have a look at all the fixings (door hinges, door locks, door bolts, keyhole covers, door viewers, etc) and see what should be replaced. This article on Let’s Fix It also mentions that investing in premium door hardware that meets the British Standards should be essential.
Inside your home, there are many other ways to refresh your interiors. Perhaps you’ve been wanting to change something in your kitchen but are not sure what – why not change up the kitchen cabinet handles? This subtle change will give your kitchen cabinets a whole new look! Or maybe you feel like there is something missing in your bathroom? Why not add some modern brass towel hooks?
