Home Living : April 26th 2011
HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, April 26, 2011 1 HOMELIVING ............................................ INSIDE FLOORS COVERED Think comfort underfoot SMARTER LIVING Home automation way to go WINTERISE Home projects to do ROOM FOR VALUE Money is in bedrooms Small changes add value Janita Singh Small changes add value Making small changes in the house and outdoors not only adds comfort but value. Architect body, Archicentre says adding a bedroon was the quickest way to increase the value of a two-bedroom home in a suburb. This could lift the value of the house immediately into a new price bracket with the potential to add another $50,000-$60,000. If you're planning on changes or additions to the house, do your homework before starting. Careful planning before you start any home project will minimise disasters. Take out your pen and paper and make notes. Decide on the look. Keep a file of what you like, with photographs and clippings from newspapers and magazines to see what you want achieved. Plan lighting before you start -- replastering is generally part of renovating, so install wiring at the same time. Don't forget home automation. Compile a wish list -- what you want and what you don't want in your new space. You might be surprised to find you can even rearrange the existing space rather than add an expensive extension. For a major renovation, sketch the space to scale. y p y y ver 30 years experience in the building trade.
