Or [email protected] Or CLICK FOR ADVERT QUOTE Walls: If you are prepared to pay for the materials, do the work and are painting a neutral colour, maybe your landlord will agree to you giving the rooms a facelift with paint. Use large wall art pieces instead of a lot of small pieces, eliminating the need for lots of holes in the walls. Furniture: Use stylish pieces, either buy Ikea style furniture that you can assemble yourself or why not go to op shops for a shabby chic or industrial look. Either way, furniture makes a huge difference to a home’s overall appearance. Floors: If you hate the carpet buy large decorative rugs. Ensure you purchase good quality rugs though avoiding trip hazards and ensuring endurance for wear and tear. Lighting: It can impact a room enormously. Purchase beautiful light shades. Have a statement piece. Dress up a room quickly with gorgeous light fittings & lamps. Gardens: Transform them with statement plants in pots, garden art & outdoor furniture you can take with you when you leave. Hope that helps. Denise.
