Coming up is the longest weekend of the year — the perfect time for a mini home makeover. And, yes, you can paint a room in a day, says serial decorator Marianne Shillingford of Dulux. Choose a neutral colour and use a roller, she says. Buy about 10 litres of good-quality paint for a front room. On-trend Dulux shades include Heart Wood, Coastal Grey, Warm Pewter and Pebble Shore. First wash down very dirty or greasy walls with sugar soap solution — which dries in about an hour. Smooth out holes/small cracks with quick-dry flexible filler. Brighter colours may need two coats. Touch up with a small radiator roller not a brush. Download the Dulux Visualiser app and experiment on screen. Paint prices vary hugely from £16 for 2.5 litres own-brand to £45 for a designer label. Australian firm Bunnings, which bought Homebase, is cheapest.
