Rooms should be defined

When looking to improve a property, consumers should look into ensuring their rooms have a specific purpose, it has been asserted.

Chief executive of independent estate agent haart Paul Smith explains that rooms should have the appropriate furniture and layout for their function.

"For example, a dining room should have a table and chairs," he notes.

Mr Smith adds that this may involve rearranging entire rooms but that the final effect will allow a rooms full potential to be achieved.

Continuing, he suggests that dirty carpets and shabby lino could be cleaned or that they could be replaced altogether while existing floorboards can be sanded and varnished.
