Our home should be a secure, confortable, and relaxing place in which to live. It does not need to be excessive or extravagant, grand or imposing, just - our home. And there are many ways in which we can make some rooms more cosy and pleasant to be in without spending a small fortune. Try moving furniture around done on a temporary or seasonal basis does not require any financial outlay - but it can change a room's appearance. Obviously some items of furniture can not be moved due to their size and shape. However, even small changes can make an appreciable difference. For a minimal outlay the purchase of some new and different lampshades, and perhaps some cushions, can brighten up familar surroundings. So, before you raid your bank account, or dig out that well worn credit card, try a little re-arranging where possible.
