Simply put, by remodelling your bathroom you can ensure all fixtures and plumbing are up to date and working efficiently. By incorporating new features such as recessed lighting and modern tiling and flooring products, you can bring in a real sense of luxury.



The addition of plants, both real and false, is a great way to instantly uplift any space. An easy way to add colour, plants are also great for making instant statement pieces in any room. Choosing the plant pot or vase can be a creative way to add texture and a good focal point, and is almost as important as choosing the plant itself.

Plants on the floor, on the window sill, on shelves. Mess it up and put small ones in small spaces, massive ones that take up whole corners, trailing down over stuff indoors and outdoors. Instant glamour to any home!

Neutral shades can offer the calming influence we need right now to turn our home into a tranquil sanctuary.

Adhesive wallpaper is a growing trend as people look to create new spaces, including home offices, within their homes. Adhesive wallpaper is perfect for people looking to refresh a space on a temporary basis, or who want to explore new colours and patterns for their rooms.

Whether you're making a statement wall or bringing life to an otherwise dull room, a great benefit of temporary wallpaper is that you can easily change it when you get bored.

With so much time on our hands, and unable to get to the shops or order what we like online, we are able to do those little projects we have been putting off. Upholstering chairs with new materials, or sewing new cushions and pillow covers seem to be the most popular.

High-end touches

Add small touches of high-end materials such as antique gold, solid wood or marble throughout your home. Swap modern ornaments for a vintage ornament or vintage books, and you’ll instantly up the price tag on your decor.


Update lights

Another easy fix is to focus on updating old light fixtures throughout the home. Whether you update your pendant lights in the kitchen or add new standout lamps to the living room, a new light fixture is a great way to give your home the right ambience to feel cosy and luxurious.


Create Space

One of the best ways to make your home feel luxurious is by creating open space, and sometimes simply rearranging, decluttering, and investing in some clever storage solutions is enough to achieve it. But, when that’s not enough, a home extension or garage conversion can help massively by creating a new, separate space, or enlarging an existing room. 

Both can be done on a budget with some clever cost-saving ideas.

Loft conversion

Loft conversions can add huge improvement to any home where extra bedrooms or multi-use rooms are needed, particularly now when so many people are working from home. It costs comparatively little but adds so much, potentially increasing house value by as much as 20 per cent.

A loft is usually dead space and conversion, which doesn’t require planning permission if it’s under a certain size, doesn't eat into valuable space like an outside extension – something to consider if you have a small footprint.

'Bi-fold doors tend to be the dream aesthetic, with floor to ceiling glazing allowing natural light to flood a room. However, they can be expensive. A cheaper alternative to achieve a similar, luxury effect would be to replace existing windows at the rear of the property with traditional patio doors (French doors), which opens up the living space and makes it appear larger while blending the outside space seamlessly with the inside. This works especially well in kitchens and kitchen extensions.
