Add Cypress Pine mulch around your shrubs and trees to instantly freshen and renew garden beds. The Cypress Pine smells lovely and it also is a great mulch that keeps termites at bay.

Study magazine ads and furniture showrooms to see how small details can enhance the appearance of a room.

Soften potentially offending views, but always let light into your rooms. Consider replacing heavy curtains with something lighter. Take advantage of natural light as much as possible – clean windows, open blinds and curtains etc. Add additional lighting where needed. Be sure that all light fittings are clean and have working bulbs. If your kitchen has fluorescent lighting fixtures, use ‘warm-white’ bulbs for a bright appearance.
Ensure all wardrobe lights are in working order. Add battery lights to wardrobes that lack built-in lighting, as illuminated wardrobes appear bigger and more attractive.
