First of all there's the exterior...
You'll be surprised at how much of an effect the outside of your house can have on how you feel about it.
Plus, it's the first thing anyone else sees if they are viewing the house, so regular maintenance is essential if you're trying to sell.
So, the best way for instant rejuvenation?
Paint. Head to B&Q, grab a pot of paint and wait for a dry few days and go to town! You don't even have to go for a new colour, if your white's been weathered or your terracotta tarnished, a new lick of paint will do wonders for your home.
Secondly, windows. They frame our view on the outside world, so really they are one of the most important factors of your inner (indoors!) happiness.
Weather it's a few new windows or even just new curtains or blinds. Making these 'windows on the world' more attractive, or more to your taste is a brilliant way to spruce up your home.
Keep colours as light as possible, curtain-wise to allow as much light in as possible whilst remaining opaque. Pale greens, creams and mauves are very popular this summer.
And lastly, but certainly not least - lights.
Sounds simple, but a few new fixutres and fittings will improve your home no end. Especially in a small space - it is this attention to detail that makes a house a home.
Be it a large paper lantern, or some low-lighting or lamps, these will make the evenings cosier and the days brighter.
