Where it all comes together easily
o one becomes a renovation expert overnight. Completing a successful renovation takes skill. It isn’t something you can learn from the pages of a book, although that helps. It takes time, research, guidance and possibly a few mistakes. It’s from these mistakes that we learn. Lending an ear to expert advice is also a useful tool. And, with 21 years of profitable renovations under her tool belt, Cherie Barber is one expert worth getting to know. As the creator of the Renovating For Profit course, Cherie has developed more than 90 renovation projects – impressive. This month, the television personality shares one of her favourite and most successful renovation concepts. The cookie cutter approach is relatively easy to follow and has worked for many renovators, including Cherie. Also, this month we take a look at some great dining room styles to get your creativity pumping and share some tips on how to choose artwork for your home. Until next month, happy renovating!

COVER STORY //
COOKIE CUTTER She’s known as Australia’s renovation queen and is a regular contributor to Network Ten’s The Living Room. Now, Cherie Barber shares her thoughts on the best strategy when it comes to cosmetically renovating for profit. My Renovation’s guest contributor says anyone with a flair for design and spare cash can make a property look amazing. However, big ideas require big budgets and if renovation is a wealth-building strategy then you have to keep a close eye on the bottom line. Here, in her own words, Cherie shares her favourite strategy, which she calls the cookie cutter approach to renovating.
CHERIE SAYS: Don’t get me wrong, I love interior designers and property stylists and have a tremendous amount of respect for their craft, but if you’re renovating properties priced in the low to medium price range, it’s unlikely your property will warrant an individual design approach. There’s a time and a place for eye-catching interior design and that designer wow factor that will have you drooling to your knees. That is in structural renovation territory, where dilapidated dumps in trendy inner-city locations and the middle-ring suburbs are being snapped up by
eager-beaver renovators with price tags of $750,000 and above. The hope here is to throw everything at it and aim to resell for almost double the purchase price. In come the surveyors, the town planner, architects, engineers, interior designers and a swag of other expensive team members to help you design and renovate your way to some cracking hot profits. This is where a cookie cutter approach would be completely the wrong strategy and could lose you money. With a structural reno you need to spend money to make money.

PRIVACY & SHADE Without Maintenance
We use only Australian Powdercoated Aluminium or COLORBOND® Steel. • Awnings • Louvres • Shutters • Fencing & Gates • Insect & Security Screens All screens and gates are custom designed to suit your needs.
Property focus In 2016, Cherie smashed a suburb record with this modest workman’s cottage she purchased for $950,000. She splurged on lavish design, even installing a shoe and handbag room. More than $1 million were spent but it paid off. The structural efforts were rewareded when the property sold for $3.06 million.
TIPS To hit your profit target, you need to have: • Bought your property at the right price • Know the formulas of what, and where to spend on your reno • Correctly estimate (through market research) what it’s going to sell for once renovated • Once you have these three critical goal posts in place, you’ll be on your way to making a decent profit.
In comes the cookie cutter strategy, says Cherie For cosmetic renovations on lower priced properties, you don’t have the budget for individual design. By developing a palette of colours, materials and even tradies that you transport from one project to the next, you streamline your costs, timeline and processes saving you big time. This is called the cookie cutter approach. The trick is to use colours and quality finishes that stand the test of time. You’ll stick to a family of flooring, kitchen finishes and other details, but the point is you have all those materials ready to roll out on every project. Your team of tradies know exactly what to do with any new project, so there’s no need for you to be on site every day. Cookie cutting your renovation also minimises wastage. Those leftover tiles, laminate flooring and bargain lights that you bought a bundle of can simply be used on the next project. Of course, you can make minor tweaks to your cookie cutter to individualise the look. It’s the key to profitability, and ensuring renovations run on time and to strict budget.

Top ideas for the bedroom If you’re short on space, it’s easy for a bedroom to become messy. Who else has a floordrobe? National visual merchandising manager for Fantastic Furniture, Craig Evans, shares his favourite tips to clear clutter in your bedroom. Here’s how to create a comfortable space…
Smart storage Investing in smart bedroom storage can help put your life back in order so you can find what you need when you need it. Not only will it help for quick and easy exits in the morning, it will aid in relaxation.
Measure up Choose the right size furniture for your room. There needs to be enough floor space around your bed for you to walk around without stubbing your toe and bumping into furniture. If space is at a premium, take your time to choose storage that works hard for you. If you have a large window along a wide wall, for example, then opt for a lowboy. If you have limited floor space available then it makes sense to go up the wall with a tallboy.
When looking for bedroom storage, choose a unit with deep drawers so there is plenty of room for a variety of clothes to keep everything neatly in one place.

Pile it up Organise what’s left neatly into piles by category. Once you have a clear idea of what you have and how much, you can then decide on what storage you need. Sort and stash Take a long hard look at your bedroom then sort your stuff. Be brutal and remember the old adage, ‘If you haven’t worn it for a year, then throw it out’. If you don’t have the heart, store it away in a suitcase or better, a zip-up vacuum bag which takes up less space.

DRESSING UP Choosing the correct artwork and wall hangings for your home can be tricky business. Here are some foolproof ideas to get you on the right art track.
TOP TIPS TIPS • Trust your instinct • Research artists and art types to find out where and what to buy • Be bold – don’t be afraid to mix old with new or colour with black and white • Investigate the local art scene • Remember that wall art can be more than a canvas.
WE LOVE Lara Scolari is an emerging contemporary Australian visual artist, who lives and works full time on her art. Working with various designers in 2016, Lara has been commissioned to create space specific artwork for many harbour and beachside Sydney homes as well as for refurbishments of high-end established restaurants. Lara’s latest body of work, Contemporary Luxe, is focused on the tonal combinations of rich and luscious colour, together with the simpler considered form of the fluid organic circle. This is influenced in part by our Australian culture – an island continent surrounded by water. Producing strong, considered bodies of work, Lara’s coveted artworks are beautiful in organic form, line, shape and composition. Visit art2muse.com.au/artists/lara-scolari.
The size of any artwork is an important design consideration for the room. Don’t hang a small canvas on a large, blank wall. It’s also important not to hang a massive painting in a small space. Go with what feels right.
Balance Bright isn’t always best. This doesn’t mean artworks have to be void of creativity. The Miss Soho piece by Brent Rosenberg is the perfect addition to this modern living space. Visit cranmorehome.com.au.
Simple works If you have bold and colourful furniture or flooring, opt for unique pieces in pastels, grey or black and white. The Shai canvas is part of the winter/autumn collection from Urban Road.

Get the look Whether it’s a standalone variety, or forms part of a larger space, the dining room should be considered as an important part in any kitchen or living area renovation. Here are some of our favourite styles. Industrial edge Concrete, sharp lines and timber are a match made in industrialtrend heaven. If you are worried that the look might be too clinical, add a touch of greenery. We love the handmade timber dining bench. A great way to think outside the dining room box.
Modern rustic The mixed timber, iron and plastic weave chairs, together with the fresh flowers, potted plant, outdoor elements and mixture of materials blend perfectly with this streamlined, modern kitchen.

For style and strength choose COLORBOND® Steel
tip Define the space if you don’t have four walls. You can do this by using a floor rug or squaring the table into a corner.
Natural touch In this design, the wall and rug work together to create a unique border around the dining table. Mixed materials and furniture, together with the potted plants and chevron element, result in a balanced enviro-scandi style.
RENO idea Create interest and character by installing panelling or grooved beadboard along the lower half of the dining room walls. Beadboard can be painted any colour and installed at your chosen height.

A fresh coat of paint in the right colour may help sell a home for more money. This is the claim coming off the back of the Zillow 2017 Paint Colour Analysis, which looked at more than 32,000 photos from sold homes to see how certain colours impacted sale price on average. Homes with rooms painted in shades of light blue or pale blue and grey can sell for as much as $5440 more than expected, Zillow reported.

PLAN ahead... If you have been thinking about building an outdoor kitchen, the winter months are a great time to plan your renovation to bring your entire cooking experience outdoors in time for summer. BeefEater Barbecues’ sales manager, Matthew Spinks, says planning through the cooler months has many other advantages. He says summer can be a busy time for tradies and planning your outdoor living space in winter can not only save you money but a lot of stress of finding a quality tradesman to carry out the renovation. He says deciding between fully modular and built-in options will depend on space: “It will determine what type of barbecue, exhaust hood, cabinets, sinks you can legally install. Ensure you choose an outdoor barbecue that is licensed for use in Australia.”
Epoxy floors are seamless and extremely abrasion resistant. Making it the ideal concrete surface treatment when durability, resistance to heavy foot traffic and minimal maintenance is important.

FIRE UP THIS WINTER If you have invested in a good quality barbecue, then it pays to take care of it. Here are some great tips from the team at BeefEater Barbecues on how to clean your barbecue effectively. Soap up Once the barbecue has cooled down, remove the grills and immerse in warm soapy water. Scrub the bars gently with a regular kitchen scrubbing brush to avoid damaging the surface of the grill. Towel dry Rather than allowing your grill to drip dry, rinse off the soapy water then dry immediately. Oil it Spray with a light coat of vegetable oil to protect the surface of the grill. Tray clean Scrape out any fat and residue from the drip tray and put in the bin (rather than the sink as it can clog the drain). Remove the tray and wash in warm soapy water. Equipment Use a stiff wire scrubbing brush to remove any hardened residue and then a regular kitchen brush for the rest. A mild detergent will suffice, to avoid damaging the surface of the grill.

SPRUCE UP YOUR OLD CONCRETE
tip If you haven’t cleaned the barbecue since the last time it was used, opt for the bake-off method. The high temperatures of barbecue cooking is what gives the food its delicious flavour, but cooking with high temperatures releases juices and fat from meat that can stick and splash. This can take some time to clean off, especially if left. All you need to do is heat up the barbecue and then place the lid on and run the burners on high for five minutes. Turn them off but leave the lid closed for 20 minutes. Scrub clean.
And add real value to your home • STYLISH • DURABLE • SEAMLESS • CLASSIC LIVING
Invest in tools It’s worth investing in a good tool set that can handle high temperatures, oil and fat coming from the barbecue. Choose barbecue tools that have long handles to ensure safety. Visit beefeaterbbq.com.au. DID YOU KNOW? Just like the cooktop, microwave or oven in your home, the barbecue is much easier to clean after a meal than if left, when cooking splashes and food residue can become hard and caked-on.

THE NEW GREEN
This brushed metal vase is from Go Arty. Phone 5451 1445.
The annual Milan Furniture Fair attracts thousands of people each year, and for good reason. It sets the benchmark for design globally. This year, designers introduced a number of trends but one of the biggest was the colour green. Steering away from Pantone’s Colour of the Year, Greenery, which lends itself to a lighter yellow hue, a darker colour dominated. The emerald colour was paired with a range of metals and pink tones.
BLACK AND GOLD A luxurious lamp will brighten any dull corner. The Vienna table lamp is from Salt&Pepper. Visit saltandpepper. com.au for local stockists.
tip Emerald green is synonymous with wealth and luxury. Pair with rich, dark colours, gold and rose gold in dining, living and bedrooms. Timber touches will work well with the design.
