August 20, 2016 – last weekend, Strathfield had the most expensive home sales of Australia. A four-bedroom home in the suburbs of inner western Sydney was sold for a whopping price of 6.8 million dollars. Although Strathfield has always been popular for large families and larger homes, this auction had definitely been a pricey one. Houses in these areas usually have great house renovations done.

House renovations could be a fun but difficult process, and most people end up with certain mistakes. Here are a few mistakes most people commit while re-doing their houses themselves and tips to overcome them.

Buying quality products is a must. In case you are not sure about your house renovations Brisbane professionals undertake, do your homework and select the one with experience so that everything goes as planned.

·        Another very important step should definitely be taking accurate measurements. Unproportionate or badly measured dimensions might not provide the full impact of whatever you’d be trying to do. This is a very common mistake people make. Although professionals of Brisbane house renovations are most definitely careful about these minute details.

·        House renovations are careful and tedious processes, which should be done with proper planning and budgeting. Most people skip the prepping part. You would only end up in trouble, and so it is very essential that you think the entire plan through.

·  ·         You should always move out while renovating your house, or else the remodelling process would be slower due to the distractions caused by the kids or other family members. It is important to get the work done faster with great detail and accuracy. Also living in a house which is being remodelled can be dangerous as various kinds of tools are spread around and any mishap could occur.

Lighting is important because it can absolutely revamp a boring room. Proper lighting induces positive feelings and makes the home-staying experience a lot more pleasurable and peaceful.

·        People are always suggested to order 20% more flooring than required. This is because while installing the same, sometimes breakage takes place, and you may or may not get the same type of flooring later on. However, some people just overlook this fact.

–        Some DIYers try to paint the house on their own. They try to do some quick fixes before they can sell the house. Just be careful, as dodgy work may scare your buyers off, and you will have to repent for the same in the future.
