Give Your Home Some TLC

Moving house can be a lengthy and costly process. If there is not a valid reason to sell your property and move elsewhere, why not consider an interior design project to give your current home some TLC?


Depending on your budget, there are many ways to boost your current home. Your interior design project can take as long as you need; it doesn’t need to all be done at once (unless that is your plan!) If you are going to revamp your property in small steps, work out an interior design plan – which rooms are urgent and which can be done at a later stage?

Shop Around

If you are planning on changing your kitchen or bathroom, shop around local stores – you may find that they are running “Interest Free” promotions and deals that will save you money. If you are in time for one of these offers, you may decide to alter your long term interior design plan and make the promoted room your starting point.


As with kitchen and bathroom promotions, look out for offers in stores on paint e.g. 3 for 2. It is always worth getting a tester pot if changing your colour scheme. You may find a colour you have chosen doesn’t look right once applied to your walls, and a tester size patch is easier (and quicker) to alter than a whole wall.


When planning your project, think about your furniture. Sometimes our old furniture works with a new colour scheme, whereas new furniture may suit your new look rooms better. DIY stores also have some great paints for wood – perhaps your much loved wooden table and chairs could be given a new look too?


Many shops now display their furnishings e.g. curtains and cushions in colour themes – this not only helps when looking for cushions in a certain colour but can be a great way to get ideas for colours (and what works well together) before you commit the paint to your walls.
