The Question

Hi Dani,

My apartment really needs a revamp but I'm unsure where to start. I live a busy life and work full-time so am looking for small things I can do that will have the most impact as I don't have time for a full reno. Please help!

The Answer

It’s no secret that big renovations can cause big inconveniences. But if you’re time or space poor honing your vision into a few key areas can give effective results – without the huge outlay!

The first step is deciding where to start. I would suggest prioritising the spaces you spend the most time in and taking it in stages. Decide on the areas that will have the biggest impact and how best to allocate your budget. If you have limited time and headspace, outsource major ticket items first, like shutters, lighting upgrades and any paint or trade work, then chip away at layering your soft furnishings, furniture, and styling items.

Below, are some of the best quick and easy apartment updates that will have maximum impact.
