Renovating is the dream for so many Australians. After all, it’s the best way to build the perfect home for you and your family. But finding the time, the funds and the design inspiration can prove quite challenging if you’re not fully prepared. Everyone has a different reason for why they want to renovate. Maybe you deliberately bought the cheapest home in the best suburb, and now it’s time to give it a complete makeover. Maybe you need more space for a growing family. Maybe you want more light and flow for totally open-plan living. For homeowners, the most important consideration for their renovation is the overall look. But just as important is finding high-quality, durable products that can stand up to the renovation task. For example, if you’re interested in the latest Scandi Barn trend then you’ll want something like Hardie™ Fine Texture Cladding or Stria™ cladding for that premium, contemporary look. Alternatively, Linea™ weatherboard truly elevates a Hamptons-style renovation.
