Fancy giving your house a bit of a new-year facelift, but short on time? Try these quick and easy expert tips to transform the family home into a dream dwelling
With a new baby around (and maybe a toddler, too), it can be hard keeping up with the housework, let alone even thinking about decorating and DIY. But if you’re feeling like the place is looking tired and drab, the new year is the perfect time to spruce up your pad. And you don’t have to go makeover mad and repaint everything in sight to do it.
Interior designer Linda Barker (www.reallylindabarker.co.uk) explains: “Making small changes can really transform things, even just moving furniture around can give a room a new lease of life. That’s not always possible (you might have the TV aerial at a certain point), but you could change your sofas from an L-shape, to facing each other.”
