HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, February 1, 2011 1 HOMELIVING ............................................ e INSIDE WHITE IS RIGHT Neutrals still rule HIDE AND SEEK Kitchens disappear in space CAREERS IN BUILDING Laying a new path BENCHTOPS Your guide to surfaces Plan before you spend Janita Singh Plan before you spend Careful planning before you start any home project will minimise disasters. Take out your pen and paper and make notes of everything you want achieved and plan your budget. Decide on the look. Keep a file of what you like, with photographs and clippings from magazines to see what you want. Plan lighting before you start. Replastering is generally part of renovating, so install wiring at the same time. Don't forget dimmers and side lamps for mood lighting. Compile a wish list. List what you want and what you don't want in your new space. You might be surprised to find you can rearrange the existing space rather than adding an expensive extension. For a major renovation, sketch the space to scale. Measure your furniture, decide what you want to accommodate and do a floor plan to scale. And if in doubt, get an expert. Hiring an expert designer for a renovation or just a small addition to the house could be the best thing you do. Even if you think you know what you want, the expert will make your home project as comfortable as possible. 1300 364 290 Vis i t our Showr oom 361 Pennant Hills Road Pennant Hills NSW 2120 CORNER OF GEORGE STREET OR www.pergolaland.com.au Call Us to arrange a booking with one of our experienced Design Consultants OPEN 7 DAYS: MON - FRI 8:30 - 4:30 SATURDAY 8:30 - 4:00 SUNDAY 10:30 - 4:00 PERGOLAS DECKS OPENING ROOFS CARPORTS The Trusted Outdoor Additions Specialist HIA MASTERBUILDERS ASSOCIATION AUSTRALIA NEWSO U TH WALES LIBER TY PR OC ESS STAB ILITY FIRST INCORPORATED 1873 Master Builders Association Builders Licence: 93536C HIA Gold Member SPLIT & DUCTED AIR CONDITIONING Authorised Dealer Licence No 215990C SUMMER SPECIALS SAVEUPTO$600 ON DAIKIN DUCTED SYSTEMS SAVEUPTO$300 ON DAIKIN SPLIT SYSTEMS PHONE NOW for a FREE In-Home Quote 9737 0293 2030589m 4/1
