Home Living : April 26th 2011
HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, April 26, 2011 1 HOMELIVING ............................................ INSIDE SMART IDEAS Latest products BETTER VIEWS Window experts 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. ,IC .O # !". 48 HOUR TURN AROUND 2035478i 19/04 2150898i 8/3 ROLLER SHUTTERS MANUFACTURER DIRECT QUALITY PRODUCTS AT TRADE PRICES • Domestic Rollers Shutters • Shopfront Roller Shutters • Pergola Roller Shutters • Heavy Duty Extruded Shutters • 10 Year Written Warranty • Fast Professional Installation by Qualified Tradesman • Reduce Heating & Cooling Bills • Deter Burglars • Reduce Noise • Storm Protection FREE MEASURE & QUOTE WE SERVICE MOST BRANDS OF SHUTTERS Lic No 196633C 2/52 Alfred Rd, Chipping Norton (opp Mack Trucks) CALL TODAY 1300 302 822 www.maverickrollerproducts.com.au 4/45-47 Whyalla Place Hoxton Park Ph 9608 6688 HLS 2399433iL WK02 MINDA SECURITY SHUTTERS & GRILLS Best Quality Shutters Direct from the Factory Protect Your Home Special Price Free Quotes & Measure www.waratahwardrobes.com.au FACTORY & SHOWROOM Unit 1, 183-185 McCredie Rd, Guildford 9632 5444 Lic.
