These 5 home renovation ideas are sure to inspire.
1. Declutter and simplify
Before you can get a good idea of where you are at, the area you are looking to make over needs a good spring clean. By clearing out the clutter and becoming organised you’ll instantly open up your space and feel less cramped. De-clutter your walls and your floors and keep the décor in your home to a minimum.
2. Keep colours streamlined
A room with lots of different colours and textures can overcomplicate a home. A fresh coat of paint in a light neutral tone can help open up a space. Dark colors absorb light and can make a small space feel even more cramped.
3. Clever choice of lighting
The more light that you can introduce into your home the better. By removing heavy drapes, windows can allow natural light to flow freely. Where artificial light is needed, seek advice on the best positioning and incorporate spotlights or lamps to add a touch of color and attention to focal pieces of furniture or artwork.
4. Mirror mirror on the wall

5. Custom designed furniture
Cleverly designed furniture can do wonders when it comes to renovating. In-built wall cabinets and bookshelves help to keep items off the floor and multi functional pieces of furniture are clever ways to limit your need for multiple side tables and benchtops . Wall mount as much as possible to to keep limited floor space clear.
