5. Removable wall decals are a quick, easy and non-permanent way to zing up your walls. These are perfect for rental properties as they leave no damage

6. Eye-catching and unusual shelves are a brilliant way to add some practicality and personality to your home. We think teens will be particularly keen on this idea!

7. Don't underestimate how much impact some carefully chosen artwork can have on the look and feel of your home. Just one piece will be great
