Home Makeover

Desperate for a home makeover but unsure if you have the guts to attempt it? Follow these foolproof home facelift tips …

1. Create a moodboard for your project or use an online room planner. Know what you want, and plan it out. Plan and project-manage the jobs, and don’t lose track of deadlines.

2. Work with what you have and think creatively. A lot of hacks done on a budget look really stunning, and upcycling is a greener and more interesting way to update your décor.

3. Separate jobs you can do yourself from those you can’t. Know when to go the DIY route and when to get the professionals in. Avoid doing plumbing and electrical work at all costs.

4. Use a price-comparison site, or ask for tradesmen recommendations.

5. Check and approve all the materials – you don’t want to come home to freshly laid tiles you hate.
