Tips to revamp your home

decorating

Fancy revamping your home, but feeling strapped for cash? You can still make your home look a million pounds without breaking the bank.

Think in colour

A lick of paint instantly refreshes a room. Remember, you don’t have to paint every wall. If you already have neutral colours, like magnolia, consider using a bold colour on just one of your walls.

Give your furniture a face-lift

Throws, quilts and cushions can add new life to tired upholstery, and don’t have to cost you the earth. Work them in with your colour scheme to avoid any clashes.

Move things about

You can get a new look instantly by rearranging your sofa and other furniture.

Go green

Fresh or good silk flowers and plants brighten a home instantly. Large leafy plants in good-sized pots are great for filling in empty spaces. Just remember to water them!

Light up your life

Cleverly placed fairy lights can add instant twinkle and warmth to any room. You can use them instead of your normal lights when entertaining guests.
