We love clever projects that show how you can upgrade your home without needing planning permission or even building teams, which is why we are showing you this fantastic home! With a little help from an interior designer, some simple touches have totally transformed what was a plain little house into something really special and you can do the same, without blowing your budget! Come with us now as we take a look around and pick up some top tips!

1. Upgrade your hallway lighting and flooring.

WOW! That really is a huge difference! By simply replacing the tiles with clip-lock laminate and adding extra lighting, what was a dark and fairly sterile hallway has become a warm welcome home! We really can't get over the difference that floor has made!

2. Add funky wall finishes.

Those chilly tiles have made a mess of another room, as we see here in the kitchen/diner, but don't fear as there is a better solution! Some warm wall fascias look great and really help to box the kitchen section in, while a full wall of patterned tiles easily upgrade the dining section. It's that easy!

We had to just take a closer look at these patterned tiles, as they are so good! The best part is, literally anyone can tile! It's all a case of patience and logic, as well as handy tile spacer that takes all the guesswork away!

3. Simply paint walls a new color.

It's the oldest interior design trick in the book, but still one of the most effective! If you want to totally change the look and feel of a room, you need to paint the walls a different color. You can even go super bold and add a bright feature wall, if you are longing for a burst of zingy fun!

4. Romantic touches.

We don't know how this bedroom looked before and we don't care, because it looks cute as a button and super snugly now! Finished in a myriad of soft, romantic tones and with opulent bed linen and a fancy dresser, this is a master suite that dreams are made of!

5. A perfect pergola.

We can't stress enough how much we love it when people don't neglect their gardens during a dramatic home makeover. With a wonderful pergola in place here, the outside really does look as good and well thought out as the interior, making for a wonderfully cohesive property.

Phew! What a difference and as we promised, everything here could be done without the help of professional builders! If you'd like a little more makeover inspiration, take a look at this Ideabook next: A spectacular low-budget apartment makeover.
