spend and where to pull back can be a very difficult decision and there is a lot of conflicting advice.

Construction costs are on the rise, making it difficult for anyone embarking on a project to accurately budget. Before you start it’s worthwhile getting some advice.
Choosing the right person to design your home is critical. Make sure you are selecting them for the right reasons. A good relationship with the planning office should not be a deciding factor!
One sure way to guarantee a successful and stress

your choice based on a website or flyer that has been posted through your door.

Why some colours always look fantastic and others never do, and what are the rules that you can follow to choose more wisely
Don’t be afraid to try different colours until you find the right ones! there is a certain amount of trial and error when it comes to choosing the right colours, so don’t be afraid to experiment and test things out – through mistakes we learn.
Some colours look warm and attractive when in reality, once on the walls of your home, they clash with everything. Other colours promise to brighten your rooms but react poorly in the light that comes with colder countries…so watch out!
The trick with creating an attractive and inviting neutral scheme is to use a variety of neutral shades together to create depth. When it comes to choosing your colour palette, try to keep it to 3 – 4 colours for your base tones, then you can build on this with accent colours!
Don’t be afraid to use dark colours! The trick when choosing a dark colour is your choice of shade. Really dark tones can fall into the category of neutral, and they also form the
perfect backdrop for hanging art.
Good design should be timeless. Trends can be fun, but you should add them in such a way that can be rotated out pretty quickly
