Renovating a home

If your home isn't as functional as you'd like it to be or is simply in need of a refresh, a renovation can do wonders. A good designer can work with you to ensure the renovation is practical and integrates seamlessly with your existing home.

If you decide to go down the renovation route, you may decide to do-it-yourself (DIY) or engage the services of a professional.

Regardless of which way you go, there are some important things you need to know before you start.
