In a recent edition of House & Home, we covered the second annual Home Centre Room Makeover Contest, which saw Home Centre hand out room makeovers worth Dh10,000 to 20 winners across the GCC. Around 3,500 people entered the competition in the hope of winning a revamped room.

Here are some before and after pictures of some of the other winning rooms.
Abu Dhabi resident Sana Akhtar had always wanted to give her parents an "extraordinary gift" so a new bedroom seemed like the perfect fit. "Nothing could be more special than surprising them with a completely different, redecorated room," she says.
This is what the room looked like  before the makeover:
