Men Will Benefit from Practical Courses

Men may benefit from taking practical courses as many males admit to hating DIY, according to new research.

A survey of 1000 men by Bosch revealed that one in five men confessed that they detested doing DIY jobs such as putting up shelves, grouting tiles in the bathroom and kitchen and even painting rooms.

The investigation found that one third of men said they avoided doing DIY as they thought it was too time-consuming while one in five confirmed that they did not know what they were doing.

Chris Tidy, DIY expert for Bosch, said: "There was a time when almost every man would love nothing more than heading down to his shed to make something, or indulge in a spot of DIY around the home.

"But it seems this is no longer the case as a large number of men now see it as a chore rather than a hobby."

Enrolling on tiling courses, decorating courses and plastering courses is likely to give DIY-shy men the ability and know-how to confidently carry out most tasks around the home.

The study also found that men who did indulge in DIY were often derived great satisfaction from their efforts.

Bosch made known that 45 per cent of men said that DIY filled them with pride, 26 per cent used it to express their creativity while more than a quarter liked the feeling they got after creating something unique.

Mr Tidy added that anyone can experience the financial and emotional benefits of DIY.

"I believe that no matter who you are, or what the job, DIY can be time and cost effective as well as straightforward with simple step-by-step instructions. What's more, the personal fulfilment and satisfaction that comes," he added.

More women may be keen on taking tiling courses, decorating courses and carpentry courses as the research revealed that an increasing number of females were turning to DIY.

Over a quarter of women have declared that they are DIY fanatics and another 52 per cent of said they liked doing DIY occasionally.

Children whose parents avoid DIY and employ professionals instead are missing out on inheriting practical skills around the house, according to Mr Tidy.

"In the past parents would hand down DIY skills to their children, but today's mums and dads are either too busy, or don't have the practical know-how themselves, so rely on getting in profession help instead."

These children may need to take tiling courses, decorating courses and plastering courses in the future to address a DIY skills shortage.
