Tiles are a really hardwearing and durable material that you use to cover your walls. However, because of these qualities, it means that if you drill into them, perhaps for your bathroom accessories, then those holes are permanent. If you want to change the positions of your bathroom accessories, then you’re left with ugly holes in your wall. However, you can repair them.
Throughout the colder months, there is perhaps nothing more warm, comforting and cosy that the natural glow of a traditional wood burning stove. There’s something about a real fire that not only warms the body, but the spirit as well.
Apart from the slightly silly (and maybe a little rude at times) response to the question, we all had different ideas about what the most difficult job is and what they think is the easiest and we would love to hear what you think!!??

You don’t often call a plumber and open the door to a female, but research has suggested that a quarter of all household’s would prefer a female tradesperson than a male, because of the attention to detail that women had.
So, we wanted to know who you would prefer to turn up to fix your electrics or fix a leaking tap?
It might seem quite obvious to most people but when it comes to DIY there are certain jobs you should never do yourself, unless of course you want to spend the rest of your day in accident and emergency!!
According to St John’s Ambulance more than 200,000 people are admitted to hospital each year with DIY related injuries, so if you want to avoid a small (or lengthy) stay in the local medical unit then here is the list of the top five DIY jobs you should NEVER attempt to do.
Here at LT HQ we were wondering about where tools of the trade came from so we thought about doing a little bit of research and we were amazing at what we found.
Would you be surprised if we told you that there was way more to painting a wall than just putting brush in paint and applying it?
