Soften your living space with ready-made drapery panels and transform your lounge from bland to beautiful. If a standard-sized window panel doesnt fit, its time for some DIY home improvement: buy the next size up, and hem the panel so that the drape hangs half an inch to an inch from the floor when hung. Or why not have a go at making your own curtains? Its not as difficult as it sounds, and you can create something utterly unique which perfectly captures the essence of your room.
If your bedroom furniture is looking a little tired, a fresh coat of paint goes a long way towards creating a new look in any space. You can paint anything and everything, not just the walls. Reinvent a piece of furniture by changing the colour, or give a tired, dark brick fireplace a second life by painting it creamy white. Replacing doorknobs on a wardrobe or re-upholstering an old chair are also quick, easy projects that will transform your bedroom furniture. If you want a more dramatic update, work out a budget and identify any shabby old furniture which should be replaced. The starting point should be your bed. As this is the centrepiece of your bedroom, a new bed will make a dramatic difference.
