Once you’ve finished the actual construction work, you’ll need to consider the finishing touches. How do you want the room to look? When you’ve replastered a room it becomes a blank canvas and you can let your imagination go wild. It is still on-trend to create a feature wall in a room and there are some amazing bold wallpaper prints available. And the days of painting walls magnolia are also long gone. All you have to do is pick out a colour from the wallpaper and use that for the other walls.
Soft furnishings will be a big part of the overall look of the room and a turquoise rug and curtains will help to give your room a warm and colourful feel to it, making it the cosy and relaxing space that you want. Pick up the colour scheme with cushions and lampshades, to coordinate the look throughout the space.
