Add colour

Most new builds tend to be neutral in design, with white walls and wooden floors or creme carpets. To add personality to the space, you want to imbue it with splashes of colour. Pick Roman Blinds for your windows that come in beautiful candy shades or intricate patterns, add vibrant artwork, throw rugs down on the floor and be sure to have a vase that’s always filled with fresh flowers.

Think about your furnishings

Furnishings can really change a room from being drab to fab, so don’t neglect these and think about how they’ll work together. You want furniture that’s comfortable and cosy, where you can see yourself relaxing and that isn’t necessarily selected just for the look of it. While you want your furnishings to work well in a space, if they’re not comfortable it’s just not going to work. Again, avoid trends here and think more of the longevity of items such as your sofa and bed as these are expensive and you want them to last for a long time.
