If you're getting ready to put your property on the market, you might be thinking about undertaking some renovations to help get the sale.
Don't underestimate the power of paint – a fresh coat can make a world of difference in the real estate market.
If you're marketing your home towards professionals and families, you may want to keep interior walls neutral so that potential buyers can envision themselves "making it their own" upon purchase.
If you're undertaking home renovations, it might be time to think about how you want your bathroom to look. Whether you use it simply for a quick shower and brushing your teeth or you spend hours in bathtub at the end of the long day, it's important to select the right products for you.
Firstly, you'll want to consider the type of paint to use for this space. Remember that bathrooms can be affected by mould, mildew and heat, so it's best to think about using a specialised product.
If you're doing home renovations and you're not sure what shades to paint your walls, take the time to consider what colours can say about your personality.
Many people consider their home to be an extension of themselves, so it's understandable they want to inject their own personality into the decor.
To help with this, Resene has used expressionist painter Johannes Itten's seasonal concepts to devise a colour personality test. The test can be used to determine which colours an individual may want to use in their home.
If you're about to start doing renovations in your home or in a residential facility, you may be tossing up whether to use blinds or curtains in the bedrooms and living areas. While both can look great, curtains do have some distinct advantages over blinds.
Curtains are better for allergy sufferers
If you're renovating spaces where people's health may be an issue, such as in hospitals or aged care facilities, curtains may be a better choice than blinds. Blinds tend to collect dust quickly as it can settle in and around grooves. This is bad news for asthma sufferers and those with respiratory diseases.
