Self-builders and homeowners who want to take advantage of the Easter holidays and spruce up their properties have been given some advice by George Clarke.
The television personality and architect commented that the best way people can revamp their home quickly is by painting a room white, which will “instantly give it a fresh new look”.
He added that it is best to strip back old wallpaper first and get it skimmed by a plasterer if the underlying surface is in a bad condition.
In addition, Clarke explained that this job could be perfect for people worried about introducing too much vibrant colour into their home – something that fellow TV presenter Linda Barker recently explained is in fashion at the moment.
“Your personal pictures and belongings can add the colour you need,” he suggested.
Clarke currently presents Channel 4’s the Homes Show and is set to speak at the upcoming Ideal Home Improvements section at the Ideal Home Show 2010.
