When it comes to buying a home the standard adage location, location, location is very true.
So what are the most prestigious postcodes in Britain and what makes them so desirable.

Do you live in a small home or have small rooms? It can be a struggle to know how to decorate and furnish smaller spaces without making them look cramped and cluttered.

We have found some great tips on how to decorate and make the most of a small space, so if you put them into good use you might be seeing your home in a whole new light in the future.
The Lighter the Better
