Typically mostpeople will have completely re-decorated or re-designed all the rooms in their homes over a periodof a few years and the thought of starting all over again can be a daunting one as well as aconsiderable expense. But there are simpler and less expensive ways to transform your home thanto completely refurbish it.Refurbishing rooms like our kitchens and bathrooms requires such a major initial outlay andupheaval that it is often impractical to do all over again. But these are areas that are most likely tohave tiled walls or floors and ceramic or porcelain tiles can be replaced relatively easily withoutremoving or replacing the kitchen units and appliances to update the room for a more modern feel.Similarly replacing a dated carpet with wood flooring can make a living space instantly morecontemporary.So if you have been considering updating some of the rooms in your home here are some interiordesign tips that can easily give a room a whole new look without breaking the bank.

Wood never dates and if you dowant to introduce colour then you can do so with a cosy rug. Many houses already havewooden floor boards beneath their dated carpets but if yours are in poor condition or youare worried about draughts through the gaps in the boards lowering the eco-credentials of your home then an engineered wooden floor can be laid on top of the floor boards.2.
 
The kitchen is one room that can be given a quick and easy facelift for those on even thetightest budgets. Purchase a new set of kitchen gadgets and accessories such as a kettle,toaster, utensils, storage jars etc. and you will be amazed at the transformation such asimple change can make. For those with a more flexible budget why not consider replacingdated tiling with new ceramic wall tiles

Full length curtains can provide a perfect finishing touch to an interior design scheme but if the curtains are patterned or were in a very on-trend colour at the time they were installedthen they could have dated quickly.
