    Hi. I’m thinking of improving the look of my home’s staircase but I’m not quite sure how to go about it. See, I’ve considered, for example, adding wallpaper to the front-facing parts of the steps. What sort of wallpaper patterns/colours would work here and is there anything in particular to consider when applying wallpaper to stair risers? As in, is the process any different than adding wallpaper to a wall (except for cutting it out so that it will fit on the stair risers of course). Hope all this makes sense. Looking forward to hearing back!

    Any tips for making an outdoor cinema in my garden? What are the key ‘ingredients’ (fixtures) needed to pull this off? Also, what’s the lighting that you’d associated with those American garden outdoor cinemas. You see it on TV sometimes, they’re the sort of lights that exist on wires and criss cross overhead, pretty much? Haha. I hope I’m not too vague! Anyway, looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks!

    I was thinking of painting the front facing sides of my stairs steps a range of different colours (while keeping the top of the steps a uniform silver tone). What colours would go together for painting the front-facing sides of the stair steps?

    I’m considering making a pallet sofa. How can I make sure that pallets are safe and fit for this purpose? Should I apply anything to them before making the pallet sofa? Also would the pallet sofa last long, do you think? Thanks for your time.

    Do you have any ideas to get my mind brainstorming for a garden sign post? Do I need to use timber or could other materials work and pull off the ‘garden sign post look?’ Thanks.

    Hello. I’ve been thinking of updating my house in different ways. Are there any new, in-style door handles that I could add to the doors around my house to achieve this?

    Hi, I've had a damp survey done on a house I'm in the process of buying and it has recommended that the ground is lowered at the back of the house to prevent water splashing from the patio tiles onto the walls (and hopefully exposing the air bricks so that the sub floor is ventilated). I think the job would involve slicing off some of the patio tiles, digging down to the appropriate depth, laying down a membrane and then filling in with gravel. I'm not sure which is the most appropriate trade to do this - would it be something a general handyman could do?

    I want to replace my shower curtain with a more attractive shower screen. How difficult are they to install and is this something I could do myself or should I get someone in to do it? If I do get someone in, what sort of cost am I looking at (both for the screen and labour costs)? Thanks.

    How do I know that a roof can manage the weight of solar panels? Is there a way I can do this DIY or should I hire a professional?
