John Amabile outlines the opportunities to redesign and refresh a property on a budget…

For accommodation providers, in order to keep within the budget it is important to think on a room-by-room basis and to be mindful of one’s market in order to plan exactly what needs refreshed and the most effective route to achieving this.

Searches on websites such as Gumtree and eBay can highlight a huge number of potential bargains, particularly if you favour the Scandinavian, Scottish, retro or boho look. Likewise, community resources such as car boot sales, markets and charity shops can all help – if you don’t mind the hunt.

John Amabile is a leading interior designer based in Glasgow. A regular on TV makeover shows, he has over 30 years’ experience in interior design. For more inspiration, visit John’s YouTube and Facebook channels, which are full of top tips.
