DON’T FOR­GET THE small stuff!

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Home Revamps -

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!
