Renovate smart.
Property and interior design expert recommend some dos and don'ts in renovation.

  • Use a well-coordinated design theme.
  • Increase the illusion of space and light through the use of glass and mirrors.
  • Keep the interior design clean and simple.
  • Use brands that people know, especially for fixtures like taps , toilet bowl and built in appliances.
  • Be prudent - keep your Reno budget within 10 to 15 percent of your home cost.

  • Go for overly - strong themes , such a classical schemes.
  • Add to many built in , they depreciate over time.
  • Waste money on expensive fitting so subtly designed that they don't look expensive.
  • Splurge on luxury fitting that only appeal to niche taste, such jacuzzi bath.
  • Splurge on expensive , rare marble flooring that may not be truly appreciated by your home potential buyers.
