Home styles are so varied, and often relate to their age and location. Usually you would expect the inside of the house to be reflective of the style of the outside of the house, and you should take this into account especially when you are considering putting the house up for sale. Vendors won’t expect an Edwardian property to look like a loft apartment inside, for example, but they would be happy with some modern touches to be blended into the internal decor.
When you are planning a home makeover, first decide if you can work with the current style, or if you need to change it.
•Use the opportunity to change if budget allows – it’s always good to update at least a few pieces of furniture for example
•Don’t follow fashion too closely, it will soon appear dated
•Ensure the style suits the house. You can mix old and new, but very carefully
If the makeover is for selling purposes..
•Use as many existing furnishings and styles as you can, in order to keep the budget down
