If you’re looking to improve the look and feel of your home but don’t want to extend there are lots of things that you could consider.
Paint the house
A fresh lick of paint gives your property a clean, crisp look. Whether its painting the fascias or fences to redecorating the walls inside and out. Paint is relatively cheap these days but can have a massive impact on how your property looks and feels. You need to select the right colours for the right rooms. Try using paint to make a feature of an unloved alcove of shelf. If nothing else, your house should at least look better than your neighbours.

Hang mirrors in the hall
The first thing visitor’s see is your hallway, often narrow and cramped. Optimize the space by installing mirrors either side that magically transforms the space to feel bigger.
Transform a kitchen in an instant with new splash back tiles or a worktop. Experiment with alternative materials like coloured glass or metals or bold ceramic tiles for a contemporary look. Mix this with a simple worktop, like laminate or wood which is generally the cheapest. A custom worktop would range from £800 upward dependent on the material, with huge range of tiles from as little as £4.60 per m2.
Install sleek lighting
Add atmosphere to rooms with contemporary lighting. A clinical kitchen with warm-white seamless fluorescents, a new type of lighting that gives an unbroken strip of light. Or upgrade your lighting with HIVE technology for a high tech system approach.
Knock down the walls
You can add space to your property by simply removing a wall that allows the space to feel bigger with more natural daylight. Just remember to check first if the wall is a structural element of the building before knocking it down.
