Most of our renovation work on the Gold Coast involves kitchen and bathrooms, after all, these areas have the biggest impact on your lifestyle. But the sometimes overlooked exterior appearance will have an enormous impact of your home’s value.
Nothing says dated, like yellow or orange brickwork.
Lots of people think that you need to render brickwork to modernise your home, but I’m here to tell you that spraying bricks is fast, cheap and looks fantastic when done properly.
First impressions count, right?
So what better way to impress, than with an updated exterior makeover. There’s something about freshly-painted brickwork that makes your house instantly look so much better and adds value.
When you are considering a whole house renovation, don’t forget the exterior, and that includes painting the brickwork, and framing your doors and windows.
Replacing the front door and adding some outside lighting can certainly make an impact.
In my opinion, failing to budget for a façade makeover and landscaping is one of the biggest renovation mistakes I see, but it’s a common one. I understand that the exterior is done last in your renovation, so budget for it from the start so you have money leftover at the end to actually do it.
