Editor’s note A
ustralians love to renovate. So much so, that an expected $30.59 billion will be dropped on projects this year alone. And, with a projected growth forecast, the industry shows no signs of going backwards. The HIA Renovations Roundup market report reveals that the spend rate will steadily increase during the next three years. By 2019, we are expected to be spending around $33 billion annually on renovations. In Queensland, the industry has grown by some 8.8 per cent during 2015 and will increase a further 5.9 per cent this year. Spend will grow from a projected $7.53 billion in 2016 to $8.57 billion in 2019. Interestingly, 24 per cent of renovation jobs fall within the cost range of $12,000 to $40,000 while 13 per cent fall in the category of $200,000 to $400,000. There is no denying that Aussies love their homes and enjoy undertaking reno projects, whether it be a major overhaul or the addition of a new outdoor entertainment area. Whatever your project is, we want to hear about it. Share your story, just like Bec and Craig have in this month’s edition. See page 8. Email me at: email@example.com

Shining style If you don’t like the natural colour of concrete – use an epoxy coating to achieve a polished effect. Epoxy resin is a coloured or clear substance that will also protect your floor or walls.

TIPS The team at Kunda Park’s Concrete Design House share these secrets for successfully creating a concrete paradise… • It is a versatile product and can be used indoors and outdoors • Concrete can be incorporated into various interior designs including industrial, contemporary, urban and traditional styles like the Hamptons’ influence • Using the correct mix design and the right proven and tested sealers, you will get great water, oil and acid resistance.
GET THE LOOK: This kitchen was designed by Concrete Design House.
BARE BEAUTY Concrete dates back long before the phrase ‘stylish design’ was bandied around. Recent years have seen the re-emergence of concrete in a completely new light, bringing the product into the interior design limelight. Concrete can be used for purposes that go beyond floors and walls. My Renovation shares some ideas on how to give your home the urban feel…
DID YOU KNOW? Glass fibre reinforced concrete, also known as GFRC, is lighter in weight and can be poured as thin as 10mm. It has high flexural strength, is less prone to cracking and can be used to make integrated sinks, wall panels, tables, barbecue areas and kitchen counters.
TREND ALERT According to Rebecca Bevan from Concrete Design House, concrete incorporated with natural elements such as jute, hemp and timber, work in perfect harmony together adding warmth and softness to a space. Add bright splashes of yellow and green with plants, pots, artwork and decorative accents.
Luxe lighting Carry the urban theme through your house with industrialstyle lighting. Hanging pendants, particularly geometrical metal designs, work well. Hanging round globes are another option. When using pendants stick to an odd number – three will always look better than two.

REAL LIFE //
A HOME TO LOVE Coast duo Craig Patterson and Bec Hann purchased their Pelican Waters home with the intent of renovating it. My Renovation caught up with them to learn about their real life project… Q. Is this your first renovation project? A. We have done a few renovations in the past. We wanted to renovate because we could see it would add value and add equity to the property, so at its completion we could either sell for a profit, or use the equity to renovate a different property. Q. How long did it take to complete the project? A. The actual work took eight months. Q. Did you do the work yourselves or hire a team? A. We did most of the work ourselves. Craig owns Ocean Tiling so we had a great tiler for the job, however we had to hire a plumber, electrician and a chippie.
2 Total cost
Q. What was the hardest part about the renovation? A. Living in a worksite definitely has its challenges but didn’t worry us too much. The hardest part was definitely for Craig, having to work hard at home after finishing a normal day of work and being committed for such a long time to get the job finished. Q. What is your favourite feature of the newly-renovated home? A. We definitely love the butler’s pantry and the main

bedroom ensuite that is like a wet room without walls. Plus, the ceiling to floor cupboards in the kitchen which act like a locker, and keep everyone’s things off the kitchen benches. Q. What do you love about renovating? A. Being able to change a space and create an area that you love to be in. Also the opportunity it offers to financially get ahead.
Craig and Bec’s tip: Do your sums, don’t overspend, which is very easy to do, and if it’s a job you can do yourself, don’t pay someone else to do it, get in and do it yourself.

KITCHEN // Timber trends White and wood are a match made in interior design heaven. This timber splashback is the ideal example of how to achieve a contemporary and functional kitchen.
Blinding white Timeless, classic and clean – a white kitchen is everything the renovator and new home buyer look for in design. It’s guaranteed not to date, but there are a few things to consider before taking the plunge. Keeping white cabinets and benchtops sparkling can take some effort so keep that in mind. Other things to consider before making a decision include: do you like a gloss or matte finish? Marble or plain white countertop? Should you inject colour into the kitchen with an interesting splashback? Talk to your local kitchen expert to figure out what will work for you.

hen it comes to cooking great tasting barbecue food, it helps to have a few tricks up your sleeve. Having a good selection of barbecue accessories at hand can lift your barbecue entertaining skills, say experts. Here are the top barbecuing tips from BeefEater Barbecues to ensure your outdoor entertaining area is terrific... TOOL SET It’s worth investing in a good quality tool set that can handle the high temperatures, oil and fat from the barbecue. Barbecue tools, unlike kitchen implements, need to have extra long handles for safety purposes.
ROASTING EQUIPMENT Roasting a whole bird or joint of meat on the barbecue is easier than you think with the right equipment. Opt for a high quality roasting dish such as the BeefEater BUGG Enamel Baking Dish which is especially made to withstand high barbecue temperatures. Use it with a roast holder to cradle your meat as it cooks. PIZZA STONE SET Enjoy the authentic taste of pizza cooked on the barbecue, then served to eager diners with the right equipment for the job. Pizza stone sets are easy to use. Visit beefeaterbbq.com

SUPA CHEAP CARPETS & INTERIORS
Hide away If your budget doesn’t stretch to including a complete outdoor area for your barbecue, like this one from BBQ and Fireplace Centre, construct a custom-built hutch. It will enclose your barbecue and protect it from the weather, plus it looks great.

NICE AND NATURAL An entertainment area will benefit from an injection of colour. When choosing plants for potting, or for nearby gardens, include some citronella. The vibrant green is pretty but the plant will also aid in keeping mosquitoes away.

finishing touches Advice and ideas to turn your renovation into a home
BLUE MOOD The colour blue is calming yet playful. Bring it into your décor in various tones ranging from denim to sky blue. It works well with timber flooring and furniture to develop a coastal feel, which is perfect for our lifestyle. We think this outdoor room is great inspiration for the renovator. The tones of green, bamboo and blue work together perfectly.
