#1 Virtual re-arrange!

Use a floor planning software such as Roomstyler to plan your rooms. This type of software will help you to see your room without having to lift a finger and will enable you to see what different combination look like.



#2 Hid mess in boxes

Shh! Organize open shelving or armoires with plastic storage bins or baskets. Not only does this pull the room together, but it also turns a cluttered mess now looks like a trendy designer look!





#3 Small budget? Don’t worry

If you only have a small budget, spend it on your entrance. Start by bringing in a small dresser, console table or bench to create a focal point and then add accessories. Place an umbrella stand or a tall vase next to the table/dresser to give it some dimension.


Pretend you are a stranger and open your front door. What do you see? is there anything that grabs your attention? If not, change some items around until it feels inviting.



#4 Simple Colours

Try using neutrals as the main building blocks, things like the colour of the walls, and/or the largest pieces of furniture. Then add texture, design, and colour by layering in different sized and coloured accessories. This way its easier to change the whole feel of a room with just a few minor changes.





#5 Trust Yourself

Go with your gut. Make decisions based on what YOU like, not what you think is on trend, popular, or what you think other people will like. Ultimately you are the one who has to live in your house. If you want to do a room in top to bottom leopard print, then do it if it makes you happy.



#6 Along With The Entry

Other than the entry the second most important room in the house is your own bedroom. A clever tip is to update your bed linen and add plenty of cushions and throws. This will revitalise your bedroom.





#7 Up Cycle Furniture

Get Crafty and Repaint Furniture. You can easily repurpose furniture with either a new lick of paint and having some fun by antiquing some furniture can be a great way to add a new lease of life.


One area you can do this in is the kitchen, paint old, outdated cupboard doors and cabinet framing with white or crème melamine, and switch out knobs for a new, updated look.



#8 Replace Weighty Fabrics

Keep It Airy and Light by removing heavy drapes and replace them with sheer materials such as voile or lace. You can find affordable materials at local fabric stores or use old pieces of fabric you may have lying around. Simply pin-up fabrics with some tacks or sew a rod pocket at either end.





#9 Don’t Ignore The Front Door!

Spruce up your front door first. For just a few pounds, a fresh coat of paint, a new knocker or even a shiny knob will work wonders. And while you are at it, make sure your doorbell works. No one likes to be ignored.



#10 Art

Hang some new prints or rearrange your current artwork. Choose artwork that means something to you and fits with the overall feeling and mood of the room. There are plenty of places online to buy art affordably.
