Making improvements to your home is a great way of adding something fresh and new, or perhaps you are simply looking for a new style? There are so many choices to make – the décor, what features you can have, even the colours – that it can be both a fun and time-consuming process. We thought we’d offer you some great advice about how to do things on a budget, and thought we’d start with what is already there.
What do we mean by that? Well, if you live in a house that is not a new-build, you may be surprised how previous owners have changed things – and not necessarily for the better! Style goes through phases, and what was fashionable in the 1950’s, for example, may not have been in the next decade. What goes around turns around, so they say, and it just so happens that some of the features that may have been covered up back then are now very much back in fashion.
For example, take the open fire: it’s a beautiful feature in any living room, and you can buy many very attractive surrounds – both traditional and modern – and in many older houses, perfectly usable fireplaces are sitting behind boards, unused. It’s easy to uncover them and put them back into use, and what could be cosier on a cold winter night than sitting in front of a glorious log-burning fire?
