If you’ve got visitors staying over this Christmas, but the spare room, box room, or home office that doubles as a bedroom, is shameful and needs a bit of attention, then here are some top tips, quick fixes and freshen up ideas that will help you to give it a new lease of life with little effort and minimal expense.

Take anything out of the room that doesn't need to be there. Even if you need to put it back again afterwards, you'll be amazed how much more spacious and organized a room looks without the clutter - particularly if you can move things off the floor.

If storage is an issue, pack the clutter in lightweight plastic storage crates or cardboard boxes and put it in the loft or garage temporarily. Always leave some drawers and cupboards empty for your guests. This will make them feel far more at home than living out of a suitcase. There's nothing more embarrassing than your guests opening cupboards or wardrobes and being greeted by hidden clutter!?Stack-able storage boxes, old trunks or even sturdy but decorative hat boxeslinen cushion covers, are good for spare rooms as they can double up as bedside tables as well as providing storage.

Freshen up the walls or even a single feature wall, with a coat of paint and maybe a new colour?

This is undoubtedly the quickest and most effective way to transform a room with little effort or expense; and it's easily changed afterwards, if you feel like you've made a hasty colour choice that you can't live with long term.

If all you have at your window is a blind, add style, colour and warmth by putting up some co-ordinating curtains.?Eyelet curtains?on?poles?are quick &; easy to install, need no dressing &; are very user friendly.?Go floor length where you can for more impact, just because it's the spare room , it doesn't mean you can't add a bit of wow factor to make your guests feel that they're in a special room instead of the spare room. ?

Size things up.

Consider re-carpeting or invest in a statement rug if your flooring needs some attention.?Rugs are great in a number of ways. They add warmth, colour and texture to laminate or wood flooring and wood, they are great for dividing room space and will cleverly mask the 'bad-bits' of a worn or tired carpet. ? Rugs are not only stylish and practical , they?make a good investment too as they can be moved around the house for use in other rooms.

If you've got a tiled or vinyl floor in your bathroom?or in a guest’s en-suite, putting a bath mat down can add instant, extra, warmth and comfort or again, simply provide the perfect guise for tired flooring.
