They said: “Paint is a must have tool for budget decorating, but it should be restricted to walls.

“It can also be used to give dated furniture and accessories a much needed lift. Try repainting wood furniture in an eye-catching colour to instantly modernise an ageing piece.

“If you have plain white tiles in the bathroom or kitchen, invest in some budget tile paint and give them, and the room, a new lease of life.”

Moving the furniture around could also help to make a space feel brand new.

It could also highlight any pieces of furniture that homeowners no longer need, helping them to make some money too.

The experts added: “Also add patterns to any shelving units.

“Upgrade mundane shelves with a boldly patterned backdrop. Wallpaper, fabric, and wrapping paper remnants are all ideal for lining the backs of bookcases of built-in shelves.”
