When you move to a new house you want to put your stamp on it, marking it as your own. This can often be expensive if you go in all guns blazing, however if you think about it logically, there are a few things that you can change that don’t mean a total renovation, whilst still making it your own.


Bathrooms can often be expensive to change and if the essentials like the bath, sink and toilet are in good working order, there is nothing a bit of a clean can’t fix. Now the walls, that is a different story. There are often marks or signs of wear and tear on bathroom walls, and it’s usually the discolouration of grout that makes everything seem older and more worn. By replacing this with wall cladding it will not only cost you less than ripping out the whole bathroom, but it is extremely quick and easy. As wall cladding doesn’t need grout and requires little or no preparation, you can save on labour costs and time. Available in a range or colours and styles it can instantly brighten up a bathroom making it your own. It is also easy to clean and 100% waterproof.
Bathroom ceiling cladding also has these same qualities so not only will your walls be protected, your ceiling will be too. This is great for condensation and steam, which is often the main culprit for mould and damp on bathroom ceilings.

Living room

The living room is a place where you and your family will spend most of their time, so ensuring that it feels homely is important. Changing the colour is always a start, so giving the walls a quick lick of paint can instantly transform the room. Accessorizing the area with things like cushions and rugs can also help it to feel ‘lived in’. These small furnishings don’t need to be expensive, but can make all the difference when it comes to the appearance of your new home.


Wall cladding is again a great idea for your kitchen. It can protect against moisture as it is waterproof, but can also bring colour and style to the area. Kitchen units and appliances are often very expensive, so if they are usable, it may be worth leaving them for the time being. Changing small things like unit handles can modernise a kitchen instantly as well as putting your stamp on the space.
