Home Ideas: Redecorating by Refreshing What You’ve Already Got - Alan Farr Limited

Redecorating your home doesn’t mean you need to spend lots of money on getting brand new furniture, buying new accessories or painting every room. We’ve come up with four home ideas to refresh what you’ve already got in your home to give it that brand new feeling.

Furniture restoration.

We understand that sometimes it is not financially viable to buy new furniture and some furniture may have a sentimental value to it. That’s why at Alan Farr Ltd, we offer high quality furniture restoration. Restore your furniture to look brand new again or freshen it up with with a new look through spray finishing.

Use furniture in a different way.

Another one of our home ideas is to take your current furniture and give it a different use. This is especially good for the sentimental items that you don’t particularly want to use but also don’t want to get rid of. For example, take an old coffee table and put it into a corner of a room with cushions and blankets to create a quiet reading corner. Or, use old dining room chairs as bedside tables.


Paint is perfect to refresh items you’ve got in your house to give it a new feel. If you’re redecorating a room and your accessories no longer match, paint them! Have you currently got a very plain room and want to add a pop of colour? Paint the edge of your mirror or picture frames with a bright colour.

Spray finishing.

The final of our home ideas is to give your home a makeover with spray finishing. At Alan Farr Ltd, we offer bespoke colour matching for spray finishing in either lacquer or paint. We also offer various wood floor refinishing.
