Toolbox - Materials and Tools

There are lots of products and tools to choose from, so which ones do you choose ?

During the Coronavirus crisis, lots of people are staying at home, so DIY is top of the things people can do to keep them active, mentally stimulated and keep the kids occupied and most importantly, learning something new.

On this page, we are building a reference of the best materials and tools, so you can buy (or hire) the right stuff for your own project.


The easiest and quickest way to make your home look different, is to refresh the paintwork.

The old solvent based ”smelly” gloss paints are a thing of the past, now there are water based alternatives, which are easy to apply, the cleanup afterwards (or spills or splashes) is done with water, instead of the old turpentine in a jam jar!
