“This is such an easy change and really elevates a lounge, bedroom or hallway,” she says.

“Please, for the love of God, change your light fittings,” she pleads, suggesting high street stores like Asda, B&Q and Dunelm for the best budget buys. 

“Nothing says ‘landlord special’ more than a white plastic light.

“You can get stylish lights anywhere quite cheaply and it makes it look like you've put so much more effort into a space.

“Obviously get a professional in to deal with any electrics if you need to.”

Finally, she advises us to rip out our boring skirting boards and go for a taller option.

“Short, characterless skirting boards give us absolutely nothing but the taller the skirting, the taller your walls and ceilings feel,” she says. 

“A bit of shape detail really adds that bit of flair back to a room. 

“Paint them the same colour as your walls to elongate your walls. Your whole room will look and feel so much grander.”
