There have been the usual selection of adverts on commercial and catch up tv for decorating and house refurishment products. The secret to getting the job done swiftly and with no time, energy or cash being wasted is probably to engage a professional interior designer and decorator to really look at the rooms you want dealing with. If they offer more than just maximising the space and highlighting the positive aspects of any room. If the way it’s furnished doesn’t utilise all the space efficiently, maybe too many chairs and perhaps a cabinet too many. . . or could the radiator be blocked by furniture. The way designers interpret the needs of the family is critical of course. There would need to be a couple of face to face meetings and a really good look at the property for them to gain an insight into the most efficient settings to offer. Making sure there’s adequate storage is something that can be attended to up front so that you can actually see the wood for the trees!
