The number of first-time buyers in London recently hit a five-year high, and if you are one of the scores of new homeowners in the capital proudly brandishing a set of keys to your first home then a world of decorating wonders awaits you.

From tidying up your jungle-like garden to restoring your home’s original wooden flooring, an array of renovation tasks both big and small will test your home ownership mettle, as well as giving you the satisfaction that your new home was definitely a labour of love.

Here are just a few decorating tips that first-time buyers may want to heed before they start knocking down partition walls:

Identify your style

Identifying the overall style you want to achieve in your property, anything from modern to country will help to ensure that all elements of your redesign marry together. Using a mood board to experiment with colour and fabric combinations can be particularly helpful in this process as is consulting architecture and design guides on the era or design movement of your choice.

Write a to-do list

While the idea of making changes to your home, as the mood strikes, or as the redecoration budget gets a fresh cash injection, may be tempting, writing a complete ‘to do’ list of your renovation tasks will help you to ensure that your re-design goals aren’t waylaid because of an over-ambitious schedule.

Quick and cost-effective ways to transform the look of your home

Not all elements of your home makeover need to be meticulously planned or calculated for and the range of quick fixes to your interior could involve anything from replacing kitchen workshops and steam-cleaning carpets to replacing your fireplace surround or sofa covers.
