o say I enjoyed putting together this month’s editorial piece on bathrooms is an understatement. Compiling our top picks for luxurious bathrooms was a fun task. Who knew the humble room could look so beautiful? There really are no boundaries when it comes to interior design of a bathroom (other than your budget, of course). The key to renovating is to trust your instincts – combine common sense and expert advice with your own loves. This applies to all aspects of the project, not only the bathroom. This edition for our cover story, journalist Sarah Morgan takes a look at the growing trend of young couples who are renovating. With land releases slowing down and house prices going up, many young people are turning to the tools to create their dream home. I’m sure you will find plenty of helpful tips for your own project. Also this month, we have lots of kitchen advice, tips and our style pages. Be sure to check out the Finishing touches section for interior design inspiration. Until next month, happy renovating!

COVER STORY //
Donâ€™t forget the garden! Allow for a percentage of your overall budget to be spent on landscaping to complement the work youâ€™ve carried out internally. A big trap for renovators is forgetting the outdoor areas.
TIPS FOR FIRST-TIME RENOVATORS Ever since shows such as The Block graced our screens, many of us have daydreamed of buying a rundown home and turning it into a masterpiece. But the realities associated with such a project can be a different story. Before you start knocking down walls, here are a few tips.
Know your ABCs Once you have decided the way forward, you may need to look at lodging a Development Application (DA), particularly with a larger renovation, and a Building Application (BA). This looks at all the details around the renovation and ensures you are operating within building codes. Seek advice from your local council.
Do your sums first Before starting, make a list of what you want to achieve, seek quotes from contractors and price up materials if you are doing it yourself. When putting a budget together, make sure you add a 20 per cent buffer for each item to cover anything that might come up. Check out websites such as The Stylesmiths for ideas or connect with local suppliers.

Existing structures When planning your renovation consider your existing structures. By working with the existing plumbing you will be able to keep costs down while also avoiding expensive rebuilds.

WE LOVE! APP-ly that paint. Forget the swatches and sample pots, with the Paint My Place app you can test what colour suits best.
Don’t forget the kitchen and bathroom The kitchen and bathroom are two areas that add value to your home, particularly if renovating for an investment or for resell. Make sure your kitchen includes storage, a place for a larger fridge and quality fittings.

Hamptons Why we love it? It’s simple, fresh and stunning all rolled into one. The wooden accents paired with the greenery creates a beautiful bathroom.

tip Minimalist is best. Keeping lines clean and work spaces clear not only allows you to maximise your bench space, but it will also emphasise any pops of colour you choose to incorporate.
Feature areas Confine the use of timber to feature areas such as benchtops, feature panelling or open shelves, so it’s not too overwhelming in the space.
Mixed countertops When it comes to fashion-forward benchtops, a solid granite, quartz, laminate or wood option are a thing of the past. Mixing materials is the latest sought-after look.
The natural alternative Timber is one of the most natural looks you can get in the home, so it’s no surprise that wood is a timeless choice that is back in vogue. Whether you decide to use real timber or a laminate effect, the look exudes a welcoming and homely feel.

Heat, scratch, stain and impact resistant covered with a 10 year warranty. We specialise in kitchen makeovers, new kitchens, bathrooms and laundries.

Organic-look lighting, like these made of rattan, bamboo and dried water hyacinth, add an exotic dimension to any style of home.
BACK TO NATURE Natural fibres are big this season, with textured looks created by woven elements the best way to provide seamless elegance to otherwise neutral homes. These accents can be added in anything from furniture and lighting to decorative pieces.
Statement piece A well-placed bamboo table or chair can really offset an otherwise bland area of your home.
tip When sourcing woven or handmade pieces for your home, look for a fair-trade certification so you know your purchase is supporting underdeveloped countries by paying a fair price for the work by craftsmen and women.
Rugged woven textures • Reeds • Rattan • Jute • Cane • Seagrass • Bamboo
Tropical Haven If you can’t get enough of the textured look, find an unused space in your home and transform it into an exotic retreat with a mix of woven and bamboo furniture, indoor plants and flowing neutral-coloured curtains.

EXPERT ADVICE //
hen it comes to choosing flooring for your home, it’s important to research and familiarise yourself with different options and styles. Glenda Pelleri is one person who knows flooring. She has spent 15 years in the industry and is the director of Sunshine Coast-based business, Jerry and the Tile Makers. Here, she shares her expert advice with My Renovation readers. What is your favourite thing about working in this industry? Being able to design and colour people’s homes and seeing the finished product, especially bathroom renovations as this is our specialty. I love meeting new people and making lifelong friends with my customers. I don’t like selling tiles that I don’t like. If I wouldn’t put it in
my own house, then I wouldn’t recommend it to any of my customers. What are the most popular tiles? I would have to say the 600 mm x 600 mm Lappato stone look with a rectified edge because it’s a timeless look that isn’t going to date. What are your top tips for choosing tiles? • Be willing to step out of the box. Have some idea of colours and style that you are wanting. If you have no idea, we can always help you with that. • Have a budget in mind. • Make sure the chosen tile is suitable for the area to be tiled. • The most important thing is making sure you have a qualified tiler. Ask to see their work.

For a polished finished: CONCRETE FLOORING
GET THE LOOK Concrete flooring can also be versatile. To achieve different looks, you can stain, score in grid pattern lines or use an acrylic sealer to give it that wet look.
The days when concrete flooring was only used in commercial and industrial buildings is long gone. Now polished concrete floors have become a popular option for residential spaces thanks to their versatility, durability and sustainability. Aside from providing a trendy industrial look, this flooring option has a long list of benefits. Concrete flooring is an eco-friendly option with very low maintenance required.
Polished concrete floors can last for many years with minimum maintenance as they have a strong protection against any kinds of stains and marks. Most times, sweeping and mopping are the only cleaning you will need to maintain the concreteâ€™s high gloss. Concrete floors are easy to clean and are fire-resistant, which makes them the ideal option for high-traffic areas such as the kitchen and living area.
To achieve a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living why not try honed concrete? Honed concrete is very similar to polished concrete, but designed for external surfaces. Honed concrete can be used as an alternative to tiles and pavers.

how to: MAKE YOUR OWN PAINTED PICTURE RAIL
IMAGES: BREE LEECH & HEATHER NETTE KING FOR DULUX COLOUR TRENDS 2017 – SENTIENCE PALETTE. PHOTOGRAPHER: LISA COHEN
icture rails are making a comeback particularly in renovated properties, and we can see why. This classic look, when done correctly, can turn a dull room into a masterpiece. Whether the room is vintage-inspired or has a modern twist, incorporating a picture rail can work. When choosing colours, make sure they complement not only each other but the theme within the room. There is no hard and fast
rule about the ratio of colour – the main wall can be in a darker shade while the section above the rail can be a lighter tone, or vice versa. The paint experts at Dulux share their tips for how to achieve the perfect look. STEP ONE As with any paint job, it is important to ensure you have your usual drop sheet, quality painter’s masking tape and brushes/rollers on hand. For a DIY picture rail, you’ll also need a ladder, HB pencil, an eraser, measuring tape, putty
knife and spirit level. STEP TWO To ensure an easy paint job, paint the entire wall in your lightest colour first, allowing it to fully dry. STEP THREE Conditional to the height of your walls, measure down around 30 to 45 centimetres from the ceiling. Use your HB pencil to mark this on the walls at each corner, then along the wall use your spirit level to mark a continuous line with your HB pencil.

Give your Concrete a STEP FOUR Now, use painter’s tape to mask this line (only if you’re creating a straight line). You may require a helping hand to hold it taut at one end as you line it up. Also ensure that your tape lines up to the outside of your pencilled line. Then press your tape with a putty knife to prevent paint bleeding through.

STEP FIVE Using your brush or roller, paint the secondary coat of paint. Allow it to dry. STEP SIX Remove the tape at a 45-degree angle to prevent paint peeling. If you notice any bleeding from underneath your tape, use a fine brush to patch this up.

Emerging autumn garden trends • Feature walls that offer an opportunity for colour blocking or artistic designs. • Speciality lighting to enhance outdoor living spaces into the night. • Customised furniture that can transform awkward nooks and crannies in the garden. • Modern landscapes with a mix of tropical and native plants. • Replacing clunky pool gates with glass panels to create a more sophisticated look.
We may officially be in autumn, but it is best to wait until the temperatures start to cool down throughout the region before you begin to actively plant in the garden.
Veggie delight The best autumn crops to grow in your veggie garden this season include broad beans, broccoli, lettuce, onion, peas, radish, shallots, spinach, spring onion and turnip.

Great garden mates Companion planting is an excellent way to improve your garden. Some plants replenish nutrients lost by another one, and some combinations effectively keep pests away. Marigolds are a great companion plant in veggie gardens.
Inspiration If you have a patch of grass that consistently looks more dead than alive, transform it into a paved masterpiece that can double as an entertaining area.
