New Year makeover

The New Year is the perfect time to give your home a new lease of life so now is the moment to sort out all those things you’ve been complaining about since you moved in and really make your home yours!

Lick of paint

It sounds cliché but a lick of paint really does make a world of difference when you’re looking to spruce up your home. Why not experiment with a feature wall to add a point of difference to a room and don’t be scared to really use colour to convey your personality.

Feature pieces

Many little ‘things’ scattered throughout the house can have an overwhelming effect and very easily turn into unwanted clutter. To avoid this, focus on statement pieces which draw the eye when you walk into a room and draw jealous mutters from your guests.


Lots of us forget the importance those small accessorise play in making a home – we’re talking about items such as curtains, lamps and cushions. Select your accessorise carefully, taking time to think about whether they will fit with the rest of the décor in the room, making sure they don’t overwhelm the room with their size or bold colours and ensuring that they look great in daylight and in the evening.

Be prepared

The New Year is the ideal time to ensure you are prepared for everything this year has to throw at you. Never again will you be caught out by unannounced guests, by the kids bringing their friends around or the in-laws turning up unexpectedly. Visit the New Year sales and stock up on everything from extra crockery to spare blankets and pillows, trust us, you’ll thank us later.
