Continuing straight on from our last blog concerning good household summer projects, this week we’re taking it indoors with our suggestions for what to get sorted now, while the sun is out and the birds are singing, It’s worth noting these can be quite big tasks, too (depending), so it might be a plan to have a good-sized skip on hand for disposal.
At a glance, this week’s great ideas for house summer renovations are:
So, here’s why skip hire is probably going to be a wise decision…
Ah, the kitchen. One of the many rooms that sees guaranteed daily use, and boy, doesn’t it show sometimes. Food stains, burn marks, broken cupboard hinges…you name it. It doesn’t necessarily mean the end of the world, but every now and then a good old refit is in order.
The amount of time this can take can vary – it depends on what you’re getting rid of. If you’re just replacing your worktops, you can be done in a matter of days, but if you’re redoing the entire thing from top to bottom you might be looking at a few months at least. Either way, you’ll probably find that whatever you need to get rid of won’t fit in the kitchen bin, so strategically-timed skip hire is always a good option.
Remember, white goods like cookers and ovens are generally OK to go in a skip, but fridges and freezers aren’t, because of the chemicals they contain. If in doubt, always double check! (If you’re a little hazy on what can and can’t go in a skip, don’t worry – we’ve got that covered for you.)
Similar to the kitchen, this mostly depends on the size of the room and what you intend doing to it. This could be something relatively minor, like putting up some new shelving, or something a bit more intensive, like replacing the cabinets or bathtub. For full refurbishments, bathrooms are another one of those rooms which tend to produce a whole lot of heavy debris, so it’s definitely worth having a good-size skip to hand.
Only the very tidiest and most efficient amongst us are immune to collecting vast piles of ‘Stuff’ over the years. If you’re a parent especially, you’ll know what we mean! Broken office chairs, dressers with doors that don’t open properly, and whole boxes of broken toys you’re not sure what to do with. At Skip Hire Network, we’d always encourage you to be environmentally-friendly and efficient – so if you know these sorts of things will find a good home elsewhere, by all means send them on!
At times, though, you’ve just got to admit that what’s done is done. The dresser is broken. Finito. It’s never coming back, and no amount of skilled carpentry will save it. And now you can see that your sofa has finally succumbed to the worst effects of years of jumping and collapsing and sleeping on it. It’s time to come to terms with that fact.
Once you do, you might have a bit of difficulty fitting them in the normal wheelie bins outside. Never fear on that front – at Skip Hire Network, we’ve got what you need to make the problem go away. What’s more, environmental causes are very close to our hearts; so who knows, maybe we’ll even be able to recycle it!
