Although it can be a little daunting started a brand new home redesign, there are a few simple ways to ensure you get off to a great start. This article will outline 5 simple ways in which you can quickly transform any property.

The kitchen tops, sinks, white goods and washer dryers should all be bought in advance to ensure the the transformation can happen quickly when needed.

These should also be bought in relation to your overall kitchen theme, so for example keep chrome and chrome together, or for more a natural ‘farmhouse’ look go for more neutral items for example.

Think about the floor space – Decide what type of flooring would lend itself to your home. A seaside property may fare badly with carpet, whereas a colder climate home would be best to avoid stone flooring for example. Wooden panelling can be a good compromise for most homes, and is relatively easy to maintain.

Think about decoration – These include things like artwork, sculptures and furniture which will add a sense of character and uniqueness to a home. Your local furniture shop would be a good place to start for inspiration as you can compare a large number of items quickly to get a sense of what would work well in your home.
