Home Living : March 31st 2009
2 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, March 31, 2009 HOMELIVING Designing ways John Eussen Homewares and design specialist A cheap makeover How many times have you been to an open for inspection and thought, if only that door had a fresh coat of paint? Or you thought if you moved the sofa to the left it would complement the room so much more, or if the kitchen benches were clear the kitchen would look so much larger, or how a newly cut lawn can be as good as a home renovation. Well the same thing could be said for the space in which you live. Current economic times are promoting DIY and consumers are watching their dollars. However there are ways to spruce up the home for little cost and a bit of hard labour. One way of approaching this is to look at your home and analyse every room, think about what you would do to it if you were selling your property. Try to be objective when looking at your space, take the emotion out and imagine you are someone else looking at the room. Distinguish between junk and pieces that have significant meaning. You might be surprised at the amount of junk you have cluttering up the home and junk doesn't contribute to an eclectic mix. Clear spaces, fresh coats of paint, throw out the junk, trim back the garden and you can sit back and enjoy what others may see as a huge makeover. But you can enjoy the fact that it cost very little except for a bit of effort and taking time to look in from the outside.
