As we move into a new year, this is a time to consider what improvements are on the horizon; Australians love to make their living space luxurious, and if you are pondering how to improve your home, here are a few ideas.
Replace the Decking –
The harsh Australian climate can wreak havoc on timber decking and if your terrace has seen better days, why not replace the timber with a quality composite deck planking? No more varnishing when you install timber-grain composite, in fact, it is maintenance-free. Search online for a timber supplier and check out their decking section, where you will find everything you need.
Fitted Wardrobes –
The master bedroom deserves fitted wardrobes and if you are into DIY, this would make for a great first project. Draw up a plan, which is to scale and affix timber batons to screw the sheets of oak; there’s a lot of information online to help you design and build fitted wardrobes and with all the right tools, you can save a fortune and get rid of those bulky wardrobes. Mirrored doors and custom drawers add to the elegance and you will feel a lot of satisfaction at having built stunning wardrobes with your own two hands!
Double Glazing –
Timber framed windows will eventually rot and by replacing them with uPVC double glazed windows, you save energy and with affordable window cleaning services in Perth, your new windows will always be sparkling clean. Start with an online search and invite a few window companies to your home (not at the same time), and then you can make an informed decision.
Kitchen Renovation –
The busiest room in the house, the kitchen is more than just a place to prepare food, it is a communal meeting place every morning and if your kitchen is looking faded, why not call in a kitchen renovation contractor? Start with a design, then you can cost the project, which would be a significant investment, but one that pays lasting dividends.
En suite Bathroom –
Why not add a luxurious bathroom to the master bedroom? This is one project that greatly adds to the value of the property, not to mention the convenience factor. Choose the best quality materials and appliances and the contractor should have a good reputation within the local community. If you have the space, why not opt for a luxurious walk-in shower? Talk to a local builder, as this is a project he can handle from design to completion, discuss fixtures and fittings then when a blueprint is made, he can quote you a price.
There are so many ways we can improve our indoor and outdoor living space; if you are into DIY, the savings are there to be had, plus you gain skillsets that will be with you the rest of your life.
