DON’T FORGET THE small stuff!
You don’t have to tackle a whole room to have loads of impact. There are lots of quick fixes and clean-ups that will make your home sparkle.
• Give a plain door a new look. Glue and nail timber mouldings to door. Finish off with a coat of paint in a vibrant colour (see above and below).
• Update old and tatty power points and light switch plates for new ones.
• Replace scuffed or scratched carpet strips at doorways with shiny new versions.
• Add a design feature with pendant lights. There are DIY pendants that fit into bayonet style fittings. Plug in and hang. No sparky required!
