Landlords may consider making property look much more inventive and personalised, following advice from House Beautiful.

Editor of the magazine Julia Goodwin said 2010 will be a year when fewer people get rid of everything in properties and more will consider ways to make a house interesting.

Keeping furniture that does not necessarily match rather than buying a whole new suite is likely to become a trend in the new year.

"The look going forward is homemade style and there is a huge resurgence,"Ms Goodwin advised.

Chunky retro-inspired vases and citrusy colours will appear in many properties.

She added that those wanting to redecorate a house should consider greys rather than the traditional cream colours of the noughties.

Landlords need not worry about revamping entire houses - adding patterned flooring and accessories can bring property into the new decade.

In November, Aspect Maintenance reported that 70 per cent of London dwellers will improve homes in 2010.
