Thinking of renovating your home? Before you don your hard hat, get some handy advice from the House Rules experts!
Choose your tradies wisely.
“I always get three quotes from local tradies, but I don't necessarily choose the cheapest quote. Go with the tradie who understands and relates to the job” - Fil and Joe.
Don’t be scared to DIY – it will save you big bucks!
“Try to do all the demolition yourself and as much painting and building as possible” - Claire and Hagan.
Plan, research and budget.
“It’s important to have a definite plan so that when shopping you are not wasting money on unnecessary items. You can waste a lot of time and money going around in circles” - Brooke and Michelle.
Put functionality before style.
“Practicality and functionality is the first and most important thing to keep in mind. Grab some tape and physically lay out where you want to place the furniture, and then walk around the space to see how it feels” - Cody and Luke.
