Bank Holiday Weekend Jobs

27th April 2017

The first of two bank holidays are looming and with two extra days on our hands, it’s the perfect time to throw on some overalls, put down some dust sheets and bring out the tool box to do some of those long overdue jobs around the house.

From tackling big DIY projects, to simply tickling up interiors, here are some suggested jobs to add to your to-do list this month.



Roll up your sleeves and get handy with some serious Do It Yourself. With three long days ahead, there’s plenty of time to complete or at least make headway with a big DIY job.

For those living in a new Rowland home, it could be catching up on simple tasks, such as putting up new shelving, hanging new artworks or if you really want to feel like you’ve achieved something, it could be the time you finally getting round to papering or painting a feature wall, or even fitting a new floor.

If you’re undertaking or planning a large-scale home improvement, such as adding a conservatory or refitting a bathroom, bank holiday weekends provide precious time to take a close look at all the project details – spend time surfing the internet to compare online prices and quotes, and take time to get “Pinspired” with a variety of DIY and renovation mood boards, fixtures, fittings and design ideas.



If you plan to don some dungarees and get out the paint brushes this weekend, to give your home a lick of paint, make sure you have really researched all the pantones, textures and trends out there for 2017.

If you’ve not yet stocked up on paint and tools, then check the Bank Holiday opening hours of your nearest DIY store, so you can plan accordingly.



If the rain sets in then a long weekend is a good time to take on a crafting or upcycling project. Pinterest is full of ideas, suitable for every skill level. It could be simply repainting an old chest of drawers in pastel tones, or getting your knit on by creating a new throw for the sofa. This is a great way to get the kids involved too.



Get outdoors this weekend and enjoy a bit of green-fingered fun. Think about planting bulbs for the summer, composting planters and mowing the lawn. Getting these jobs done in the cooler weather is much nicer than the balmy summer days. You may also want to think about sorting out the kids outdoor play areas too.

Whatever you do this Bank Holiday, have a great one!
