After completing a renovating article recently (coming soon in the Education section!) I thought it might be interesting and useful to start a "Best Renovating Tips" thread. I realise that we can't possibly cover everything but at the very least we can provide ideas to one another. So, let's bring out those useful tips that might just prove handy to those of us who enjoy getting their hands dirty in property I'll start off with two little painting tips which I've picked up and used to great effect in a couple of renovations now: 1. Avoid retiling ugly kitchen splashbacks by painting over with a suitable enamel paint such as White Knight products. Amazing difference! 2. Use a product like BIN (similar to ESP) as an undercoat for all surfaces that you want to paint over. It can be applied to varnished timber, laminate, tiles and even glass. Amazing stuff!
