We love trawling through the endless images of home interiors on social media with reactions ranging from ‘What were they thinking!’ to ‘Love this style’. It’s a great way to see what’s on trend and get ideas for the sort of interior look you like.

When it comes to a renovation, most of us are aiming for a result that will stand the test of time. With the right approach you can achieve a look for now that can be updated as trends change.

1. Fixed Surfaces

Floorboards, tiles and built-in cabinetry are more expensive to purchase and install, so try to select colours and finishes that are more neutral. Bring in your personality and splashes of colour with items that are easier and less expensive to update such as those below.

2. Carpet, Lighting and Door handles

One simple way to update the look of your home is by replacing carpet, light fittings or door handles. You can give your home a lift without the cost and disruption of a full renovation.

3. Accent Paint

A fresh coat of paint is a very easy way to change the look and feel of your home. Add a feature wall(s) in the living area or bedroom, then frame it with a crisp white on the doors, skirting and architraves.
