A fresh lick of paint
If you choose to do only one thing to your home, make sure it’s giving it a fresh lick of paint. Paint can be one of the most effective ways to modernise your home. A freshly painted home will give a clean feel overall and if you decide to change up the colours from what you had before, it can make a huge impact.
When choosing your paint, think about the size of the room, the current décor and how much sunlight the room gets. You should take into consideration that although some dark shades are very nice to look at, especially on the sample card, they can make a small room, look and feel even smaller. It’s best to go for paler, lighter hues to brighten up the room. And be sure to invest in quality paint that will stand the test of time.
