Home improvement and DIY

Do you plan a home improvement or fancy a garden upgrade? These 5 retailers have all you need for your next DIY project. Tools and materials from well-known brands are on offer.

I am a bit of a DIY enthusiast myself as well as a novice gardener. I often watch YouTube videos to learn new tips and tricks and I like to get advice from friends and family. As you know doing some of the work by myself would save me a fortune. Trades people in Bulgaria have become very expensive in recent times.

The other side of the coin is with builders you never know what sort of service you are going to get. I have mix experience to say the least. Most trades people I have worked with have done an average job for a better than average price. 9 out of 10 leave mess behind and 10 out 10 have not issued proper billing document or a detailed project quote in advance.

Proper planning is a key stage of every DIY project. And step number 1 is sourcing the required tools and materials. If you are doing your home improvement on a budget, please refer to our Move2Bulgaria price tracker at the end of the article.
