WHEN it comes to DIY, sometimes a little guidance is all you need to kick-start a project you've been meaning to do for months.

For the budget conscious, undertaking a DIY project is a cost-effective way to renovate your home or garden.

By cutting costs in labour, you will have more money to spend on the DIY project at hand, and also pick up some new skills.

DIY is a great way to improve your home gradually and within your individual budget.

DIY skills are something that can be learned and then passed on.

Bunnings Warehouse Gladstone complex manager Patrick Little gives some useful tips on home improvement:

1. Planning - From the outset, it is important to identify the purpose of the renovation and make sure you find an effective solution

2. Space or location - Where you live and how much space you have is critical in determining what is right for you. The space or location of your DIY project will determine the scale of your project and what products and materials will be best suited for that area.

3. Skill level - Before tackling a major DIY task it is important to assess your skill level.

Gladstone residents are invited to gain new home maintenance skills and make the most of their weekends by learning a range of handy DIY tips at Bunnings Warehouse Gladstone.

Every Saturday and Sunday throughout June, team members from Bunnings Warehouse Gladstone will host free DIY workshops and share their expert advice with local residents.

There are adult workshops on this Sunday, at 11am, 12.30pm and 2pm.

The DIY workshops cover a wide range of projects including window and storage solutions as well as energy and water-saving advice. They will arm Gladstone residents with the skills they need to make the most of their projects.

This June, the workshops will cover topics such as flooring and kitchen, bathroom and laundry DIY.
