What do I Need to Paint a Room in One Day
There are several things you need, both from equipment and techniques point of view. Empty the room from any pictures, mirrors and ideally furnitures. The big and heavy ones can stay inside the room, just move them to the middle so you can maximise the ease you can access the walls. Put a canvas drop cloths on the floor and polythene dust sheets on remaining furnitures to protect it against damage from any paint spill.

Plastering Used to Terrify me, Now The Results Are Stunning
I remember the first time I have done plaster. It was a disaster. A friend of mine had a rough concept of it and was 100% sure it dries extremely quickly. Hence, we have decided we should make it runny. Very runny… The rest is a history, but you can trust me that nothing hurts like plaster mix inside of your eye. Since that time we have accomplished hundreds of projects and we have become incomparably better. You can trust me on this one too 😉

Do you Need to Wash the Walls Before Painting
As with everything, before painting the room you need to do some preparation. And as with everything there are some popular fairy tales that you can hear and find online related to that process. Let’s say it loud and clear to end the discussion once and for all: you do not need to wash the walls before painting. It’s a myth and most likely just another way of selling you some additional products, which you really don’t need if you trying to stay on a budget and are simply not needed.

How to fit Kitchen Cabinets Around the Pipes
One of the very frequent question we seem to come across online is whether to do plumbing behind or through kitchen cabinets. Honestly speaking I find quite difficult to imagine the reason why would you run pipes through kitchen cabinets, unless you have to redo the plumbing after your new kitchen has been installed. However, it is perfectly normal to have piping inside the cabinets. But please bear in mind that not all kitchen cabinets have enough of a service gap behind.

Bathroom Fixtures Assembly Made Easy, Install it all Like a Pro
Bathroom is usually one of the smallest if not the smallest room of the entire house. At least in most of the UK households. And also usually least seen by visitors.
