Decorating your home should be a fun activity which you and the people that you live with can all get involved in, as well as allowing you to make your house fit in with your personality and the personalities of your household as much as possible.
However, decorating can also be dangerous, particularly for those people who haven’t decorated before, or haven’t done very much decorating. In some cases, it is best to bring in professionals, such as if you are installing larger items or fixing things to the walls, but otherwise you can do your own decorating safely.
- Get an expert in. Even if you don’t want to hire an entire decorating team, get one interior designer or decorator to come in and help you to plan out the look for your home. They should be able to give you great ideas for how to make your home look perfect, and will also be full of tips and tricks to make the actual decorating process much easier on you.
- Be alert. Never try to decorate a room whilst you are tired or distracted. Even if you don’t have any accidents, being distracted can cause you to make mistakes which could ruin your room, or ensure that you have to spend even more time trying to fix it.
- Be careful working at heights. If you have a tall and a short person working together, try to get the taller person to do as much as possible without having to climb ladders or stand on chairs. When you are working at height, always be aware of what you are doing.
- Only use power tools you have used before. Get someone to teach you to use power tools safely and, if this isn’t possible, use standard tools instead. Power tools can be very dangerous in the hands of novices.
