s I write this, I’m rugged up in my boots and winter cardigan. The sun may be shining but it’s still cold outside – about 15 degrees in fact. I can’t help dreaming of long, warm days. This is why I’m excited to bring readers our 2017 pool feature. It might only be August, but now is the ideal time to prepare your backyard for the upcoming spring and summer months. In part one of our three-part pool series, we dive into all aspects of pool ownership, from choosing the right style to identifying the right location on your property. We’ve also included some style tips to help renovators create the perfect outdoor paradise. The eight-page feature begins on page 20. Also this month, we have our regular sections including bathroom, industry news and finishing touches. In the cover story, we venture into the bedroom and find out what it takes to create a welcoming and comfortable space. You can read the story on page four. Happy renovating!

COVER STORY //
Keep it clean Declutter in the bedroom to eliminate stress. Use decorative boxes and hampers as storage for odds and ends, and those bits and pieces that usually accumulate on furniture or in your cupboards.
SWEET DREAMS It’s said that we spend about one-third of our lives in bed. So, it’s g space. p fair to say our bedroom should be a comfortable, relaxing ovators invest However, often it’s the last room of the house renovators in when it comes to updating. Here, we share our tips on how to get life back into the bedroom.
TIP Use warm, gentle lighting in your bedroom. Reserve strong lighting for work w areas such as the kitchen.
STARTING POINT If you are choosing to redesign the master bedroom from scratch, you will need to not only decide on architectural design, but style. Experts suggest basing bedroom designs on a neutral palette and building from there. Did you know? Indoor plants are a natural and appealing way to purify the air in your bedroom. Manawee Garden Centre recommends orchids, aglaonemas, calatheas, peace lilies and iris plants.
Feature wall Love the look of marble but can’t afford the real thing? Or perhaps you have your heart set on exposed brick walls or a rustic timber feature wall? Wallpaper is an inexpensive and efficient way to achieve your desired effect. Today’s wallpapers are available in a range of materials, patterns, colours and textures. Choose one that can be made to measure and is easy to apply. Talk to suppliers about what will work for you.

PRIVACY & SHADE Without Maintenance
Style suggestion The classic look of white partnered with off-white is making a comeback. We can see why – it’s sophisticated, contemporary, fresh and it won’t date. Our suggestion: stick with white walls and a white bedspread. Then introduce cream tones into furniture and bedding accessories such as cushions and throws.

Layer it up Use textures and layers on your bed so that it looks inviting and as stylish as one you’d find in a five-star resort. Quilted throws, embossed quilts and luxurious blankets. Use a range of shapes and sizes with pillows. Remember, you don’t have to spend a fortune on cushions. Shop around for bargains.
Timber-look wall Follow these steps to create your own, unique feature wall. 1. Clean the wall thoroughly and allow to dry. 2. Measure and mark up the wall. Draw a line both horizontally and vertically to create a cross. This will give you a centre base to work from. 3. Mark and measure up the boards to fit the wall space. 4. The next step is to apply your chosen adhesive to the wall. Talk to local hardware suppliers about the best product to use for your project. 5. Place the first board on the wall. Be sure to place it flush with the cornice of the wall. 6. From there, continue laying the boards, wiping away excess glue with a dry cloth.

Bathroom facelift Generally speaking, bathroom renovations are pricey. According to the 2015-16 HIA Kitchen and Bathrooms survey, the average cost of a bathroom renovation is around $17,700. If your bathroom is in need of an update, but your budget doesn’t allow for it, consider a quick fix. The bathroom on the left shows how a fresh coat of paint on the walls and vanity cupboards can make a difference. Add some new lighting, and you’ll have yourself a new bathroom.
BUDGET BUY Cluster two or three of the small Zinc pendants for a modern look. The light retails for $59.95 from Beacon Lighting.
Conceal it Concealed toilets feature a recessed cistern, which is hidden behind the wall or roof space. The effect is modern and it is a great space saver. The downside? It costs more.
When purchasing your floor and wall tiles, make sure you have more than enough. This way you will have replacements down the track if any are damaged.
DON’T REPLACE IT, REFACE IT! We can transform the look of your kitchen by replacing your doors, drawer fronts, benchtop and splashback.

Winter gardening The experts at Manawee Garden Centre report that there are plenty of beautiful flowers around to brighten up a winter’s day. The standard violas and pansies are looking great, but if you are after some other colour consider cornflower, delphinium, helichrysum, lisianthus, snapdragons, statice, sweet William or primula.
Think green For an inexpensive and quick way to light up the garden path, opt for solar lights. They are easy to install and will save on power. Look up As a general rule of thumb, downlights, also known as recessed lights, should be placed about three-quarters of the ceiling height apart from each other. Talk to your local lighting expert for advice.
Don’t forget to mulch after planting – mulch is nature’s blanket and will help insulate the young roots of new plants.

COLOUR IT NEUTRAL
The paint gurus at Haymes have released the latest volume in their colour library. Volume nine shifts away from deep, dark colours and towards a softer more natural palette, with an added splash of colour. Entitled Blended Neutrals, the release was inspired by the fashionable and iconic Italian city, Milan.
Give your Concrete a
Haymes colour and concept manager Wendy Rennie says she is impressed by Milan’s more colourful neutral base made up of peach, flesh-tones and warm blues. “I’ve developed this palette of nine neutrals to inspire, influence and engage consumers to use more colour in their homes. It’s a palette that contains hints of pink, peach and blue, which contrast well with the greys, injecting life and soul to interior spaces,’’ she says. “This more playful and relaxed approach to neutrals provides an opportunity for people to shift their approach from always using greys and whites to seeing how colour can be translated into making spaces warm, balanced and liveable.’’
Colour It Australia Makeover
GET THE LOOK! The hero colour is Siesta, a subtle peach tone, which will work well in a bedroom, open-plan living space or bathroom.
WE LOVE! Sundew – This gorgeous soft and velvety blue can be used as a calming tone in any room. We think it will look particularly great in a study area or bathroom.

INDUSTRY NEWS //
RENOVATION MARKET ON THE UP Property experts are predicting that the home renovation market will be on the up during the next 12 months. Housing Industry Association (HIA) principal economist, Tim Reardon has predicted that the industry is in line for growth following the release of the July 2017 edition of the HIA’s Renovations Roundup report. The report provides the only regular in-depth review of Australia’s $32 billion home renovations market. It reveals the results of the latest home renovation survey and outlines forecasts for home renovation activity on a state-by-state basis. “Even though new home building activity has soared to
record levels over the past 12 months, conditions for the renovations market have been much more subdued,” Reardon says. “We expect this to change this year and that the market will again experience growth as the number of detached houses that are reaching the key renovations age is increasing. “Our survey results also indicate that businesses regard conditions in the renovation industry over the past year positively and suggest a modest increase in the amount of work in the pipeline. “The environment of record-low interest rates and strong dwelling price growth in key markets has certainly been a plus for renovations’ demand
but falling transaction volumes in the established house market have held activity back.” During the long term, renovation activity is set to grow modestly as a result of the backlog of overdue jobs as well as more homes reach the key renovating age, Reardon reports. The boost is coming at the right time with new home building set to decline, he adds. Forecasts contained in the Renovations Roundup report predict that activity in 2017 will be consistent with levels in 2016, before returning to a growth phase in 2018 (+2.6 per cent) followed by another expansion of 2.3 per cent in 2019. During 2020, a 2.4 per cent increase will take the value of the market to $34.71 billion.

BECOME POWER SAVVY
DID YOU know?
There is no better time to arm yourself with all the information on how your home and business is using power. With energy retailers announcing considerable increases in power pricing, the first point of call is to review what the key power contributors in your home or business are, and what can be done to minimise the impact of these items on your power bill. Anything that can be diverted to being used while a new solar system is running during the day, is far better than using cheaper dedicated night time tariffs or peak tariffs.
There are three different types of solar systems available – grid connect, hybrid and stand alone. Grid connect is considered the traditional solar (PV) system. It works by generating power and servicing your premises as first priority. Any over supply is fed back to the grid at the designated feed-in tariff. However, the majority of people see batteries as the future and would opt to have a battery ready inverter known as hybrid, which means batteries can be fitted in order to store energy during the night. Launching this month, WWOL will deliver cost effective quality battery storage solar solutions. Meanwhile, stand-alone solar is used when power can not be connected at the property and battery systems are the only option to supply 100 per cent of the property’s power. Discuss your specific needs with a WWOL solar PV expert.

tip ENERGY MONITORS AND DEVICES
Standby mode is often overlooked in a home as it only makes up a minor portion of your total power bill. There are devices on the market now to curb this complacent behaviour of simply leaving the television, computers and other devices on standby mode. With the ever increasing amount of devices now in the home, it is becoming a more dominant part of household and business bills. Therefore, using energy restricting devices to switch off products while not in use via your smart phone is an effective way to take back control of your energy usage.

POOL FEATURE //
Which pool is right for you? Inground or above, lap or large – there are many choices you’ll have to make before taking that first dip in your new pool.
Above ground An above-ground pool will cost significantly less than an inground variety, which is always a bonus. Generally, above-ground pools are prefabricated so they are easy to install. Better yet, they can be taken with you if you move house. These days, above-ground pools are available in a range of modern styles. Though they do have a shorter life span than other types.
Fibreglass Pools made from fibreglass are low-maintenance and are cheaper and quicker to install than other varieties. These types of pools are available in a range of shapes, sizes and colours. Because of these elements, fibreglass pools are becoming increasingly popular.
Short on space? For those properties limited in terms of space, or with a narrow yard, lap pools are ideal. The design also conveniently blends contemporary design with leisure and fitness.

Concrete Concrete pools can be made in a variety of shapes. Square, oval, freeform, rectangular, L-shape – the choices are endless. They take longer than fibreglass to install as they are poured on site and then lined with tiles or pebblecrete.
On trend Tanning ledges are making a comeback in a big way. The design made it into the trending lists in 2015 but are going one step further this year by incorporating elements such as built-in umbrellas and lounge chairs.

POOL FEATURE // Sun – Of course, sun is hugely important when locating the pool. Is the sun obstructed by existing infrastructure or landscaping? Do you want the pool to be in the sun during the morning and shade in the afternoon? These are two questions you need to answer before installation.
Pool location One of the first things you need to do when deciding to go ahead with the purchase of a new pool is to work out where on the property it can be installed. There are quite a number of factors to consider, ranging from heat retention to existing landscaping. The Swimming Pool and Spa Association of Queensland offers these tips for selecting the location. Shade – Consider shady spots to ensure swimmers can find a balance between the hot summer sun and cooling down.
For more advice visit spasaqld.com.au
Wind – Do you need a windbreak or is the pool sheltered from winds?

FOR STYLE and Security Plants and trees – Overhanging trees will shed leaves into the water, creating unnecessary cleaning. Be mindful not to plant trees or shrubs close to the pool fence as this can be a hazard, creating the opportunity for young children to climb over the fence while unsupervised.
Choose Colorbond® Fencing
Space – You will need to find a suitable area that provides space for the pool, surrounding area of decking or concrete and fencing.

IT’S WHAT YOU CAN’T SEE THAT MAKES GLASS FENCING SO STYLISH
o, you have built the perfect pool and finished it with the perfect landscaping. All that dreaming, planning and saving have finally paid off. There is one thing, however, that can ruin all that perfection – an ugly and overbearing pool fence. The solution, of course, is glass. Glass was at one time an expensive alternative fencing material, reserved for the most luxurious of pools, but these days it is cost-effective and a beautifullooking solution. With no visual impediment, you can take full advantage of your natural view, your landscaping and the pool. The ultimate in minimalist design, an aesthetically pleasing, frameless glass pool fence means you will not have to put up with an ugly fence cutting your yard in half. You will also be able to keep a better eye on swimmers from a short distance.
T S U AOUNUGS OFFER B
The tempered glass is very strong as it has gone through a process of being heated to a high temperature, then cooled very quickly. This means it is very safe and won’t crack, even if someone falls against it, or something heavy is dropped on it. Quality and style always add to the value of your home, so don’t forget to take this into account when choosing your pool fence. The wrong type of fence can even detract from the value of your home, reducing future resale value. There are many qualified pool fence installers on the Sunshine Coast, so finding an affordable, quality installer should not be a problem. If you feel you have the required skill set, DIY is also an option and will make for an even more economical outcome. As it is now both affordable and durable, it is no mystery why glass pool-fencing is the preferred option for most Australian homes.

MAKEOVER With The Block headed to our screens soon, we thought there was no time than the present to take a look at a popular DIY project. Former The Block contestants, Dea and Darren Jolly, have joined forces with B&D garage doors to demonstrate how a simple makeover can add value to your property. The duo recently made over the exterior of two homes for under $5000 and believe that a new garage door, or a fresh look, can improve the street frontage of most homes. â€œThe front of your home gives guests or potential buyers that all-important first impression, which makes it a crucial area of the home to allocate a budget for. Installing a new garage door is a cost-effective way to get a lot of bang for your buck,â€? Dea says.
PROJECT 1 The first property Dea and Darren turned their hands to was a dated â€˜90s brick home in McKinnon, Victoria, which hadnâ€™t been renovated for nearly 30 years. They spent less than $3,000 installing a fashionable new roll-a-door in durable Colorbond steel, repainted the homeâ€™s trimwork from cream to grey and tidied up the garden.

YEAR ROUND SHADE SOLUTIONS
PROJECT 2 An ‘80s renovation was the second project that the couple took on. They installed a panelift door in an on-trend Knotwood Wenge style to tie in with the property’s stained timber. A few pots and plants – a complete bill of less than $5000 – and the home was complete. “Match your door style with the style of your home, and then pick up on existing paint or timber colours used on the exterior trims, doors and roof to help select the colour.”
