DIY Britons should 'use white paint to create fresh look'

DIY Britons should 'use white paint to create fresh look'  An interior design expert has told DIY enthusiasts that painting a room white, creating a feature wall and sanding floorboards to a natural finish are all quick ways to give their home a fresh new look.

According to George Clarke, best known for his appearances at the Ideal Home Show, Britons who are fearful of too much colour can just paint their walls white and rely on personal belongings to add colour.

He added: "If you can brave it, pick out one key wall and make it into a feature wall with a beautiful colourful wallpaper."

In addition, Mr Clarke recommended using light to adjust the mood and tone of rooms, while he also suggested returning floor boards to their natural condition.

He urged homeowners to sand old floorboards to get rid of the years of dust and return them to a natural finish.

The Ideal Home Show is an annual event held in London's Earls Court Exhibition Centre.
