1. Paint like a pro

Don’t be tight when it comes to buy­ing paint sup­plies.

The thicker and wider the roller is, the eas­ier the paint­ing be­comes. I think we went for around an 18mm nap roller or sheep’s wool.

2. Plan­ning and prepa­ra­tion

Make sure to have a good plan to be­gin with — this is the most im­por­tant step. Draw it up or cre­ate a mood board us­ing pho­tos you’ve re­searched.

It will save you time and money in the long run.

3. Shop to your plan

We learnt the hard way in Vic­to­ria when we bought a mir­ror be­cause we liked it and then tried to base all the other pur­chases around it. It threw the whole plan out of the win­dow.

4. Vi­su­alise each space

Be­fore putting up walls or buy­ing fur­ni­ture, use tape to map out the size of the room on the ground and where the fur­ni­ture would be. It gives you a real vis­ual of what the room would be like to live in.

5. Have fun

You make bet­ter de­ci­sions when you’re hav­ing fun, not stress­ing. Have a cup of tea and re­lax, it will help you make de­ci­sions.
