A growing number of UK homeowners are looking to redecorate their properties rather than moving homes. The UK housing market poses some tough challenges for homeowners as the recession has left millions of people unable to move.

As a result, Brits are pumping value back into their properties through home improvements.

A study from Everest shows that home expansion is now more popular than relocating. Over half (53%) of those polled said they would rather add a conservatory to their current home than move to a different property altogether.

If you are looking to revamp your home, here are five top tips for decorating:

1. Budget

Before you start redecorating it could be worth considering your budget and how much you are willing to spend to transform your property. Painting is a fast and inexpensive way of updating a room.

2. Knock down walls

Open-plan rooms are more popular than ever and can add dramatic value to a property as they are generally larger, cooler and bring fewer restrictions. It would be advisable to check that the wall you plan on knocking down is not load-bearing and would be worth hiring a professional to carry out this job.

3. Modernise

You can easily transform your property and increase value by modernising your floors, windows and doors. For example, installing timber patio doors could be a great way to bring new life to the overall look of your property. Many period properties have stunning original floorboards, sash windows and heavy doors which can be restored to their former glory. The Sash Window Workshop can supply and install double glazed windows and doors to help transform your home.

4. Update your bathroom

Bathrooms are always one of the most striking features of a house. A fresh bathroom could make a significant difference to the value your home.

5. Interior décor

The atmosphere and feel of a property is largely shaped by its interior décor. Colourful accessories, de-cluttered rooms and stylish furnishings could really bring a room to life. Maximise the amount of natural light by using mirrors to create the illusion of space.
