Renovating

by reno on July 14, 2011

Renovating is one of the Aussie home owners favourite things.  For many of us it’s a win-win-win situation.  First we enjoy the process of rolling up our sleeves and doing some ‘real’ work; secondly it makes our homes nicer places to be; and thirdly it adds value to our homes.

Renovations can be anything from painting a small room like the bathroom, through to major structural changes such as lifting our old Queenslanders or gutting our old terrace homes.

When you think about the advantages to renovating, and then about the disadvantages of selling up and moving somewhere else, it is no surprise that renovations are so popular in Australia.

If you need inspiration for your home renovation job, there are countless home improvement magazines and websites out there, and of course there are annual home shows around the country.  Another good option is to visit open houses in your neighborhood which are of a similar style to your own home, but have undergone renovations.  Looking at pictures is good, but it’s much better to get out and see some real renovations.
