Once we have been living in a house for a few years it can be very easy to sit back, completely ignoring the wear and tear happening to the fixtures & fittings around us. Or we go the opposite and decide a refurb is needed, rush into it without a plan – the bull in a china shop method. This happes so often. A good way to not make mistakes is to invest in a couple of house and home magazines. Buy one very high end and one of the standard everyday ones. Somewhere in amid all those pages of what other folk have had done, or have done themselves, will be a perfect blend of what you need. Also, of course, fantastic interior design themes can be found online at superb home decor sites too. A little careful browsing and your perfect theme will materialise – together with the perfect team to carry out the plan.
