Lighting is key for setting the proper mood, either making or breaking any room. Add sparkle with metallic table or floor lamps.

The right window treatment helps a room go from bland to elegant. Soften your space with drapery materials or simplistic transparent shades.

7. Cut the clutter.

It’s important to live in a clean home – for your physical hygiene and mental health. Clutter also distracts everyone from seeing the important pieces too, so ensure you declutter your home.

8. Create a focal point.

Use colourful artwork, photography, a pool table, a giant mirror – something – to create a focal point for the room.

9. Paint it.

A fresh coat of paint goes a long way towards creating a new look for any space, and it doesn’t just have to be for the walls. You could also reinvent a piece of furniture by changing the colour.
