Home Living : November 30th 2010
8 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, November 30, 2010 Fresh new look In Sydney's volatile property market, it's not surprising many homeowners are choosing to renovate their houses rather than putting them on the market. Ian Cubitt's Classic Home Improvements have been recreating and transforming homes in your area for years, giving them a fresh, contemporary look. Whether you wish to render your home, add a study, update the garage doors, change the roof or include a first floor extension, the team will come to your home and work on a design and facelift that suits your needs and budget. The selling process can be a hard and costly one but by renovating you are adding value to your home while saving on stamp duty and removal costs, not to mention the new garden, fences and maintenance. Call Ian Cubitt's Classic Home Improvement to organise an in-house consultation and turn your tired home into something new without the hassle of uprooting your family.

HOMELIVING » ADVERTISING FEATURE Kitchen makeover Generally, kitchens sit at the top of the list of homeowners' favourite rooms but often they are one of the last to get a makeover. Kitchen Net understands that home ownership, and everything that goes with it, is an expensive commitment. They can make your culinary dreams come true. From traditional timber furnishings to modern styling, Kitchen Net provides a range of products that will meet your unique personal style and special needs. Nothing is too big or small as they provide all clients with the best possible service and competitive prices. You can get your new kitchen directly from their warehouse or if you are busy, the Kitchen Net team can manage the project from start to finish. Here are their top five tips to follow when buying a new kitchen: 1 Quality of the products: Make sure the cabinets and doors are made from high-density, water-resistant board. 2 Comparison: Take the time to get at least three quotations, and compare not only the price but also the quality of the products and services. 3 Qualification: Check if the tradesmen and installers have a licence. Many homeowners try to save money by doing the work themselves. This not only takes time, it also could cost more if something goes wrong. 4 Future needs: Go beyond aesthetics. The kitchen should make the house more liveable and future upgrades should be considered. 5 Investment return: A new kitchen can increase your property's rental income and resale value.

Reach renovators and decorators. Source: Engaging Communities, The Leading Edge (June 2008) Revitalise Your Tiles & Hard Surfaces! The great thing about tiles is that they outlast many other floor coverings. Unfortunately, over time, dirt can become ingrained in the tiles and grout joints, which can be very hard to remove by home owners. At Tile Cleaning Solutions, we have a way of cleaning that "hard to remove" dirt from tiles. The process we use utilises hot water at high pressure to remove all the in-ground dirt and oils from the tiles and grout joints. A powerful vacuum simultaneously removes the water and dirt from the floor, leaving it totally clean, just like the first day the tiles were installed. It sounds messy...it isn't. Because all the cleaning is completed in a dome that is attached to the floor, there is no mess or overspray. We can clean and/or seal all internal and external tiles, pavers, stone surfaces, stencilcrete, stencilled & concrete driveways. MINOR REPAIRS ALSO DONE BY A QUALIFIED TILER.
