read with interest recently that the average Sunshine Coast land size has shrunk by 30 per cent. Admittedly, the news is not surprising. In 2007 the Queensland Treasury reported that the median standard lot size registered with Sunshine Coast Council was 679m². Now, that figure sits at 478m². It’s a signal of the changing times - population growth, financial constraints, sustainable planning, supply demand and developer deliverance. For some, living on a smaller block is perfect, for other people, the larger land is not only a necessity but a part of the great Australian dream. I’ve experienced both sides. Our first property sat on 350m² while our current property is almost 1000m². One thing I have come to realise is that a home is what you make it. It doesn’t matter the size or the age - it needs to be a place that you call home; one that makes you happy. The good news is that renovation is not confined to larger properties. No matter the landsize you can take on a renovation project. From townhouses to units and large family homes, I’ve seen all kinds of terrific projects. The key is knowing what works for you. Happy renovating!

Luxury vinyl Vinyl conjures up thoughts of the sunburnt orange of the 1970s and the bland browns of the ‘80s. It doesn’t invite thoughts of luxury. Think again. This flooring choice is on the up and up in the popularity stakes and now takes on the moniker of luxury vinyl. Available in dozens of styles and colours, it is durable, cost-effective and recreates the look of natural materials such as timber.

GET THE LOOK: Australian walnut in the Da Vinci Woodplank Collection, available from Choices Flooring.

Monochrome magic This modern bathroom is daring. Use the design to inspire and encourage your own creativity. The black tiles are a striking backdrop against the bright white wall tiles and tub, which balance the unique look.

AUTUMN TREND ALERT Grey will be the hot trend for autumn according to Choices Flooring. Use the neutral tone as your base and build on it with dashes of warm red and orange in cushions, throws and decorative homewares.

FAB FLOORING One of the biggest interior design investments you will make is on your flooring. And, with a wide variety of materials on the market the choices are almost endless. From carpet to tiling and vinyl, My Renovation explores new designs and products to get you on the right path to achieving fashionable flooring success.

TIP Carpet Court ambassador and designer Darren Palmer says an integral part of choosing the right flooring is selecting a material that is suitable for the room. For rooms such as the kitchen, you need to take into account slips and spills. “A high gloss finish is the slipperiest surface and even finished wood or vinyl can get slippery after a lot of use. More modern materials can get around this issue but matt or textured surfaces are generally a safe bet.”

Designer durability Timber floors can be an expensive option. If you love the look of wood but don’t have a budget that stretches that far consider laminate. It’s durable and there is now a huge range of colours and designs to choose from. Tile trend These Shipwood tiles have all the style and history of distressed timber, but with the practicality of a modern ceramic tile. Choose from Shipwood cream, with a light, limewashed look or the richer red-brown of Shipwood red. They are available in matt, satin or natural finish for floors and walls.

BATHROOM //

Tile it Wall tiles will add value to your bathroom and create a streamlined and stunning effect. Talk to your tiler about the height wall to ceiling tiles look terrific, but you can reduce costs by keeping tiles at the vanity unit level.

Go with the grain This design caught our eye. Take note of how the modern, grey flooring and glass shower is complemented by the wooden vanity unit. When renovating, keep fixtures such as sinks and wall tiling neutral and add style with elements like this.

TIP

Don’t skimp on flooring – choose a material that is durable and long lasting such as marble or ceramic tiles.

CHANGING ROOMS //

Little man cave Converting a nursery into a room fit for a little boy is a fun project. Decorating for children has become a focus of the interior design world. From superheroes to space and robots, there is an endless supply of styling and theme ideas to explore. My Renovation takes a look at the popular mix of black and mint… res. Pinterest – perchhomewa

Dress it up

co.nz

Cute accessories that carry through on your theme are perfect to dress up shelves. This mint cactus is from Pretty in Pine.

Black and mint Traditionally, black is not a colour you would associate with a young child’s bedroom. But the rules have changed and the boldness of black is now regularly popping up in design. Use black as the base and incorporate a secondary colour in bright bursts. This image from Perch Homewares demonstrates the perfect way to balance the look.

Wild west Wall paper and wall stickers are hugely popular and for good reason. It’s an inexpensive and fun way to theme your room. Teepee, cactus and arrow designs look great.

From concept to completion...we will make your dream kitchen a reality

STYLE //

Mix it up Carry the industrial theme through to your furniture. Select pieces that mix materials such as metal, plastic and wood. The Nissen dining chairs feature natural-finish legs and a high metallic seat in a range of colours. They are available from Domayne.

RAW MATERIAL The raw, peeled-back sense of industrial interior design is growing momentum. Once reserved for loft style inner-city apartments, this specialised look can be adapted for almost any property. It’s about getting to the core of your home – pairing back to reveal the structural elements normally concealed. The key is to team industrial accents with a neutral palette, soft furnishings and timber to achieve a stylish look that isn’t harsh or unwelcoming.

BRICKS AND MORTAR Take advantage of brickwork and leave it - and other hardware such as beams and airconditioning ducts - exposed. Paint them in any colour you like. White, black and amber look terrific.

Texturise Soften your living room with cushions, rugs and a floor mat. Choose simple, neutral-coloured pieces but introduce a variety of textures. This cushion is available from Innovative Furnishings & Décor.

Keep it simple Stick to a simple palette of white, black and grey when decorating. Add colour sparingly through a signature furniture piece or a feature wall. When done well it will create a stunning and stark comparison.

Exposed light Go for exposed bulbs and hanging pendants made from metal and wood materials. For the kitchen, use floating globes above the bench space. For living areas, lamps, such as this one from Whitepepper Homewares, look great and create a soft glow.

KITCHEN //

WE LOVE This is a great example of how to add a splash of colour to an otherwise neutral kitchen.

Neutral vs colour This kitchen will certainly stop you in your tracks. Installing a colourful kitchen is a brave move and one that can look great. However, it is something that should be done in consultation with an interior designer. Our advice? Stick with neutral colours and add colour in small ways – stained splashbacks, designer tiles and décor. These elements are easier to update than out-of-style benchtops or cupboards.

Double up Double sinks are practical and it’s wise to install one. For the small, additional cost you won’t regret the decision.

TIP When designing the layout of your kitchen one of your top priorities should be to allow for plenty of adequate aisle space between benches.

Ready to go Generally, kitchens are sold as modular units or custom-built by craftsmen. Your budget will more than likely dictate the type of kitchen you choose. The popularity of flatpacks is on the rise. These budget-friendly units are packed and ready for the DIY renovater. They are available in a range of colours, styles and shapes and can be dressed up with the addition of quality appliances and sink fixtures.

HOW TO LAY A CONCRETE PATH

C

oncrete garden paths are simple to construct. Not only are they practical but they look great too. Here are some tips to get you started... STEP ONE You will need to build the framework for the desired path shape. Achieving a curved path isn’t too difficult – use plywood as the border and secure with wood pegs. Talk to your local hardware experts about the need to reinforce the cement with mesh. Smaller projects may not require its use, dependant of course, on relevant council regulations. STEP TWO Calculate how much concrete you will need for your project. To do this, multiply the area of the path by the

depth. It’s essential to add an extra 0.3 cubic metres to cover any errors. STEP THREE Soak the ground with water the night before and dampen again just before you pour the concrete. STEP FOUR Once you have your concrete, mix it in a wheelbarrow by combing sand and gravel with the cement. You will need to add water to achieve the required consistency. You don’t want it to be too runny. STEP FIVE Pour the concrete and smooth with a shovel or rake. Make sure to remove any air bubbles from the surface.

Next, use a screed board to compact the concrete.

TIP

TOOLS YOU’LL NEED FOR CONCRETING: • Timber for framework and pegs • Sturdy wheelbarrow • Shovels • Steel trowel • Garden rake • Spirit level For a complete list and more advice visit boral.com.au/concrete/diy

Wet concrete is surprisingly heavy. A regular garden wheelbarrow may struggle under the load therefore you are best to hire a heavy duty one from your local hardware store.

TIPS //

PICTURE PERFECT When choosing paint for the exterior of your home, select a product that is UV-resistant and will repel dirt and grime.

Good as new Give an old coffee table new life and turn it into a children’s table. Sand it back and paint in a bright colour such as red or blue.

Update your look End game Your renovation is complete and it’s time to display the end result. When styling rooms, keep décor simple and the space clean. Declutter living rooms, family rooms and the kitchen. It will create the illusion of more space and your new room will look as though it’s out of the pages of a glossy magazine.

Tiles looking a little worse for wear? If you don’t want to rip them up and replace, buy some grout rejuvenation products. Talk to your local hardware expert for advice.

On-trend: THE BEST OUTDOOR LOOKS FOR 2016

D

ress up the exterior of your home with these terrific styles that are taking over the gardening and outdoor entertainment world. OUTDOOR RUGS A fabric floor rug and the outdoors aren’t two things that traditionally mix. But outdoor rugs are becoming a popular trend. Use a textured, patterned mat to introduce a homely feel to your entertainment or alfresco area. It will help bind the indoor/outdoor living concept. FRESH LIVING The concept of creating an outdoor living room is still

relatively new but it’s an interior design trend that is not going anywhere anytime soon.

finishing touches Advice and ideas to turn your renovation into a home GO FOR GOLD We love this brass lamp and concrete and gold bowl available from Dare Gallery. When styling, pair décor accents together to build on your theme. Don’t be afraid to mix metals.

STYLISH TOUCH

Add a concrete element to any room with this cross from Whitepepper Homewares in Caloundra. Phone 0488 440 626.

MIXED MATERIALS M La year we saw a blend of mixed materials such as concrete, Last metal and wood dominating the scene. Now, interior stylists m are predicting that our love for metal objects will remain ar through 2016, though, the blush pink of copper will be th partnered by the more traditional tones of gold and brass. pa

THINK PINK SOFTEN THE LOOK
