DIY projects were a source of inspiration and distraction during the first lockdown, and with lockdown 3.0 reportedly a long way off from being lifted, now is a great time for a quick makeover that can keep you busy and increase your home’s value. 

Taking on a renovation or home improvement project could be more timely than you think. Builders’ merchants remain open having been classed as an essential retailer, and tradespeople are allowed to work in your home.
