What to know before you renovate

News /
11 July 2011

Anyone who has renovated before warns you that home renovation can be a soul destroying and costly journey. Throughout the renovation, you will learn along the way about what you would do differently next time, but not until after you have gone way over budget and the original time schedule has blown out by months. And sometimes, the end result is somewhat substandard to your initial expectations.

Rather than rely on learning on the job, a one day workshop at RenovationFix might just be what you need to arm yourself with understanding the key ‘do’s and don’ts’ of home renovation, before taking the plunge. With nine presentations from carefully chosen building, design and industry experts each day, the potential savings in time and money, and knowing where and who to turn to at certain stages throughout the renovation, should prove a worthwhile investment.

SmartStone was the obvious choice for high quality indoor surfaces. With a stunning new range of engineered quartz for a range of applications, SmartStone offers the Australian market quartz surfaces of the finest quality and style. Each participant at a RenovationFix workshop will receive a industry presentation that will arm participants with key information to tackle all surfaces; from kitchen countertops to bath and shower surrounds.

The RenovationFix website details the topics covered at each event, complete with overviews of the presenters. There are four one-day workshop programs available, structured to suit all home renovators, from the novice to the most seasoned renovator, from ‘Getting Started’, ‘Latest Trends & Directions’ ‘All About Kitchens’ and ‘All About Bathrooms’.

Other industry presenters include Dulux, Fisher & Paykel, HPM Legrand, Di Lorenzo, Hettich and more. Each workshop will be held at the Coco Republic Design Centre in Alexandria, from 9am to 4pm.

These workshops will give you information on how to achieve your dream renovation. For more information, visit www.renovationfix.com.au or call 1300 818 558.

RenovationFix is an initiative of Coco Republic.
