Flat Pack Assembly

Flat pack furniture was designed for easy and quick assembly; however, it often leads to confusion and arguments with your loved ones. We’ll take that burden out of your hands and make sure you’ll simply enjoy the end result of flat pack furniture rather than the whole process of assembling it.

Whether it’s a new bed or a swing for the garden, we’ll be able to assemble it. Sometimes instructions can be unclear, small parts can be missing, or it may be a simple question of an extra pair of hands.

There are some steps you can consider if you want to try and assembly flat-pack furniture by yourself or with a friend. Firstly, you should take care of preparation, making sure you protect the floor or any of your belongings with an old blanket and make sure you have all the tools necessary. Then, unpack the items and lay them down to ensure nothing is missing or damaged. Finally, take time to assemble the unit methodically.

If assembling any piece of furniture is not for you, get our team to do it. It doesn’t matter where you got the furniture from, our handymen are experienced in assembling furniture from IKEA, Homebase, John Lewis, Argos, B&Q, and many more places. We can assemble bedroom furniture, including flat pack wardrobes, assemble office furniture, from desks to tables and desks, assemble living room furniture and assemble children furniture, ensuring their safety.

Additionally, for outdoor spaces, we can assemble garden furniture and assemble patio furniture, whether you bought some new garden chairs, patio tables or any other flat-pack units you require assembling.

Office furniture

In case you are creating your home office and you will attempt to assemble the furniture on your own, you should consider a few pointers before. Firstly, you should plan the process methodically, organising all the components and reading the instructions carefully. Nothing is worse than getting all set to assemble a chair only to find out that you don’t have the right pieces or there are some special screws missing.When you have everything in order, find plenty of space for you to assemble the unit, grab the required tools and get to work! We recommend having an image of the end result of the unit to aid you during the process.

Have you started assembling a desk, but you think you bit off more than you can chew? Maybe the seat of the chair you were trying to build ended up facing the wrong direction? Or maybe you were trying to assemble a desk for hours and somehow assembled a side panel backwards and now you’ve given up with the whole desk completely. Give us a call and we’ll assemble it for you or simply give you a second pair of hands.

Bedroom furniture

Flat pack furniture might want to make you bang your head against the wall or even be the reason for one of the biggest arguments you’ve had with your loved one – all because of that flat-pack chair that just didn’t seem to fit together. Sometimes flat-pack furniture feels impossible to do, but with Handyman Hunter we’ll assemble it for you, so you have more time relaxing with a warm cup of tea and your favourite movie.

In case you are looking for more storage in your room for your belongings you can always add more storage space inside your wardrobe with shelves or drawer units. If you are looking to simply display your artwork pieces or give your house plants a special stand, a bespoke shelf would be a great option.

Living room furniture

Flat pack furniture has more advantages than ready assembled furniture. Even though flat pack furniture can be a big headache and takes time to put together it is much cheaper than ready-to-use furniture and it’s a lot easier to transport and carry into the house. Flat-pack furniture can also be easily painted in various colours, making this type of furniture highly customisable.

In case you are thinking of assembling your living room furniture on your own, remember a few steps before starting. Firstly, plan out the whole process methodically by reading the instructions carefully and making sure you have all the items and tools necessary for the assembly. In case the instructions state that it is a two-person assembly, don’t do it by yourself as it could end up really badly. Then, arrange some free space and start assembling the unit.

Curtains

Curtains are both great in the wintery months or during summer. Blackout curtains are great during the warm days of summer (when after a long winter of complaining about how cold it is, everyone decides to start complaining about how warm it is – we all know it). Even though curtains are great to cool off your room when it is too hot outside, they can also be used to help insulating rooms during the winter, preventing the warmth to get out, keeping your home warm all winter.

Perhaps you want to take your home cinema room to another level and hang up theatre curtains – these curtains will keep out any light source and will make the mere act of watching the latest episode of Game of Thrones an ever-greater experience.

Or maybe you are expecting a little one and are starting to think about how to decorate the nursery room. Nursery curtains might not seem like a lot to worry about, however, they play a very important role in your child’s nursery room – mimicking night time at any point in the day could really help your little one nap during the day. There are also various things to consider when purchasing nursery curtains, including avoiding floor-length curtains and avoiding curtains with decorative cording which can be pulled very easily.

Blinds

Curtains are fabric panels which come in a variety of colours, designs, textures and thickness. With this variety you are able to create the perfect atmosphere for your room, whether you want sheer curtains or thicker curtains, including blackout curtains that can completely block outside light. Drapes are similar to curtains; however, drapes are lined or backed, while curtains are made of a single layer. Drapes are often made with more luxurious materials including damask, velvet and silk.

Shades are also fabric panels, but these are attached to a rod or frame and installed within the window frame. With a wide variety of lengths, colours and materials, these offer various styles and designs to fit our overall room décor.

Blinds have the same lifting mechanism as shades, however, blinds are not a simple fabric panel. Rather, blinds consist of vinyl slats, wood, bamboo or other material slats which tilt to open or close. Most blinds have horizontal slats, but there are also blinds with vertical slats which are most commonly used over large sliding windows. This type of window treatment is easy to install and can be used anywhere in your residential or commercial building. Among the various styles of blinds, there are Roman blinds, Venetian blinds, Roller blinds, Velux blinds, wooden shutters and more.

Shelves

Maybe you want more storage space or maybe you want to display all of your house plants in a beautiful wooden floating shelf. There are various types of shelves you can choose from, including fixed bracket shelving, built-in shelving, floating shelving, corner shelving, free standing shelving, among others.

In case you are going to adventure yourself in the shelving world, attempting to put up your own kitchen shelves, you’ll have to remember a few key points before. You’ll have to take care when drilling into walls – a stud detector will help finding ideal fixing points. Additionally, adjustable brackets might not be the most aesthetically pleasing option, however, this type of brackets could be very helpful over time as it offers easy adjustability of shelving.

TVs

Have you thought about the placement? Placement is key as you’ll have to consider the viewing angle, accessibility to electric outlets, if the wall will be strong enough to hold the television up and the overall décor of the room. Additionally, will you want to have your gaming console next to the television? What about a soundbar or speakers for a complete surround sound experience? You’ll have to consider these devices and perhaps put up a shelf near the television to hold them.

We would recommend hiding the electrical cables, instead of leaving them out in the open, ready to become more tangled than headphone wires. You have two main options, either choose to bury them in the wall surface or run the wires along the surface of the wall.

Surface-mounted wires will be easier to replace whenever you want to upgrade your electronics again, however, they won’t look as good as chased-in wires. If you mind having visible wires, the other option is painting the wires, so they blend in with the rest of the wall. Buried cables even though it is a more difficult job to do – it will be worth the effort as it will give the room a more modern and cleaner look.

Tiling

Are you fully renovating your bathroom and want to install new tiles on the walls and floor? Or maybe you want to simply install tiles on the shower cubicle? If you are looking to give your kitchen a new look, maybe tiling the kitchen splashback could be enough to change things up a bit. Additionally, you can also install tiles around your fireplace to give it a clean, modern finish. Remember that planning is very important when it comes to tiling work, you should consider the number of tiles necessary and their position on the wall.

Over the time, kitchen and bathroom tiles can get cracked or broken. Our team is able to remove and replace cracked tiles without having to replace the whole tiling work. However, if you are feeling out of love by your old tiling – don’t worry, we can retile the whole room with new, fresh tiles. We may need to visit you to give you a quote if tiles have to go under or around existing units.

Is the grout on your floor tiles looking grubby and old? Our local handyman team will be able to regrout the tiles to keep it looking clean and fresh. Maybe try a different coloured grout for a pop of colour in your bathroom or kitchen. There are many options, going beyond black and white – there are glitter options and a wide variety of the colours of the rainbow to choose from.

Tiling a wall

here are some things to consider when choosing your wall tiles, including the overall style of the room, tile maintenance, right grout colour and finally, and most importantly, overall planning and budgeting. Planning is the key in any and all redecoration you might want to undertake, and when it comes to tiles it is best to calculate the amount you’ll require for the job and get a little bit more just in case some tiles break.

It is normal to be overwhelmed with the variety of tiles you can pick from to redecorate your bathroom or kitchen. Take it easy and have fun with it, redecorating rooms gives you an opportunity to show off some of your personality and add patters or pops of colour. If you have chosen white tiles you might want to add coloured grout or accent tile for a colourful change. You can pick from ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles, glass tiles, quartz and resin tiles and mosaic tiles, which will all give you a great finish. Additionally, there are various tile formats and patterns you can choose from, including hexagonal tiles, rectangular tiles, square tiles, large format tiles and more.

Grouting

Has water soaked into your grout quickly – it’s time to get it resealed! Sealing both your tiles and grout is one of the most important steps to ensure longevity of your tile backsplash, tile walls and tile floor. It will make it look great and last for a long time if you seal them. It is also important to maintain the sealant and reseal your tiles and grout periodically.

In case your tile grout has become dark, dirty and stained and you’ve tried cleaning it, but it didn’t work, maybe it’s time to regrout your tiles. At Handyman Hunter our professionals are experts at removing old grout and regrouting your tiles. We can also simply touch up the grout.

Besides grouting tile in bathroom floors and kitchen backsplashes, our team also applies grout to shower cubicles and grout paving stones. Are you thinking of grouting over existing grout in a tile floor? Please don’t. Remove that idea from your head, because the results won’t be good whatsoever – it is possible, but it won’t be worth the trouble.

If you want to change your bathroom style a bit, why not change the colour of the tile grout? It’s such a simple change, but it will be great to give your bathroom a special touch and a pop of colour. There are a variety of grout colours, it’s no longer just black and white. You can get red grout, yellow grout, green grout or even glittery grout!

Drill through tiles

Drilling through tile can be a very challenging process if you don’t have the necessary items or follow the correct steps. Drilling ceramic tiles, drilling porcelain tiles or drilling natural tiles have all particularities in the drilling process. For example, even though ceramic tiles are very strong they also have little tensile strength, which makes them easier to crack if you are not careful. Natural tiles are slightly softer than porcelain tiles, so there is less risk of cracking, however, you’ll still need the correct drill bit for the job.

Tiling floors

For bathroom and kitchen floors ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles and natural stone tiles are the most popular tile materials to choose from. Porcelain tiles tend to be the best choice as they are waterproof, stain resistant and easy to clean. Natural stone tiles can have a long lifespan if treated and installed properly. Additionally, wood floors are also an option for kitchens – this material gives homes a more warming feel.

Tile flooring doesn’t need to be dull whatsoever, there are so many options, colours, designs and patterns to choose from that you can end up with your dream design – whether it is a checkerboard pattern, monochromatic tiles, colourful mosaic tiles or geometric patterns. Just remember to calculate the amount the tiles you’ll require for the room you want to the tiles to be installed.

Baby proofing

Has the little one started crawling or maybe started walking? This is a crucial time to babyproof the house if you haven’t already. As soon as they start moving, they will want to start exploring every little inch of the house. Baby proofing your home will prevent any serious accidents from happening.

It’s very important to make sure your little ones don’t open cupboards with dangerous objects or washing liquids. To ensure this doesn’t happen we would recommend locking cupboards and cabinets with a childproof lock or door stopper.

The kitchen is by far the most dangerous room for a child, however, it is the most fascinating room for the little one. Installing safety gates would be a good option to completely block off the child from getting in. Otherwise, there are other ways you can make the kitchen a safer place, from putting away knives and glasses and ensuring that their little hands can’t reach the stove and dishwasher.

Bath screens

There are various types of bath screens you can choose from to renovate your bathroom, including single screens, which are the most popular style of bath screens, and double screens which can be opened in various ways. Foldaway screens can be easily folded and overbath enclosures can completely surround your bath, preventing water from splashing to the rest of your bathroom.

Ceiling tiles

Ceiling tiles, also known as ceiling panels, are most commonly used in commercial and industrial properties, including retail stores, hospitals and offices. Designed to improve acoustics and thermal insulation, this type of tile is a large contributor towards productivity in the workplace. For conference rooms having good sound insulation is crucial, thus investing in good ceiling tiles is of the utmost importance.

Suspended ceiling tiles also have other benefits, including providing easy access to hidden pipes, cables and other electrical wiring that might need repairing and being resistant to both mould and moisture.

There are many different designs to choose from, the world is your oyster. It is important to choose the perfect style, finish and colour to complement the rest of the office, in order to maintain a professional look in the workplace for visitors, clients, and employers.

Draught proofing

Keeping your home cosy and warm during the winter is very important. However, if there are draughts in your home, it means that warm air is getting out and cold air is getting inside. There are various ways to draught proof your home, starting with finding where the cold air is coming from – it could be unwanted gaps in your windows, letterboxes, chimneys, skirting boards, cat flaps or cracks in the walls.

In addition to making sure these areas are sealed to cover any draughts, other areas can also be problematic, including the gaps in between floorboards and the bottom of doors which should be covered with a draught excluder.

There are other methods to winter-proof your home, for example, putting up curtains can help insulate rooms, keeping the house warm during the winter and cool during the summer. Having proper insulation in your loft and wall cavities is very important as some of the heat in a house is lost through the walls and loft. Additionally, to make sure your boiler will always be working, we would recommend having a professional servicing your boiler annually – nobody wants a freezing shower on a winter day.
