Basic DIY jobs you can tackle yourself

When it comes to home improvements, there are some simple tasks that don't require a vast knowledge of DIY. Our guide covers 3 basic DIY tasks, so that you’ll have the confidence to strap on a tool belt next time you need to put up some shelves, change your toilet seat or replace a broken tile.

There are three main benefits to tackling easy DIY tasks yourself:

  1. You’ll get a great sense of achievement once you’ve completed a job.
  2. You can fix things straight away, rather than having to wait.
  3. You’ll save money because you won’t have to pay a professional.

With older properties, a basic knowledge of how to carry out simple DIY tasks is useful as you attempt to patch things up and make repairs. With a new build property this isn't the case as everything will be new, but you may still want to put up some shelves in your brand new home.
