Fed up of staring at the same four walls? If you’d like to spruce up a room but you’re short of time or money, don’t worry! We’ve got some great home decorating and makeover tips that will let you transform your space in just a couple of days – without breaking the bank.
Probably the easiest place to start (and probably the one that will have the biggest impact) is to give your room a lick of paint. A great way to choose your perfect colour is to take inspiration from the things around you – either match the colour with your favourite accessories or find a complementing colour for your furniture.
If you don’t want to paint the whole room, why not have a go at creating a feature wall? It’s one of the quickest and easiest ways to transform a room. Simply choose a focal wall in your room (chimney breasts are a good choice) and either paint or wallpaper it in a bolder colour or pattern to the rest of the room. It’s a fantastic way to get the maximum impact with the minimum effort.
