You did it. You made it through the most gruelling part of building/renovating with the help of the Sutherland Shire’s best construction tradespeople.
Finally, you’ve got the walls and floors done, but the house looks bare and you’ve got no idea where to start to turn your Pinterest board into an actual dream house.
Now the real fun begins. Here’s who you’ll need help from next!
Painting and Decorating in the Sutherland Shire
Rooms rarely just “come together”. If you don’t know all the design elements off the top of your head, then you’d be best off seeking out the professional design advice from Design In, The Painted Hive, Designer Space Pty Ltd, EB Interiors, Moore Property Solutions, Prue Laney Interior Design, or Sarah Yarrow interiors.
Painting is one of those tasks that a lot of people think they can save money on by doing it themselves. A professional finish, that can be achieved in half the time, however, is often worth paying for (especially if you could be earning money instead). Take the ‘pain’ out of painting by contacting Jonah the Painter or Ben Gauci Painting Co and speak to the Paint Wholesalers for excellent local advice on types of paint and supplies.
Good blinds can be the key to having a baby that naps during the day or the privacy to dance like no one’s watching when the kids are at school! Speak to the team at Wynstan or No Bull Blinds for advice on fitting the best blinds for your home.
Too many blank walls have a way of making a home look unfinished. We’re fortunate to have a surprising number of local artists within the Sutherland Shire that offer a huge range of exquisite and diverse art. Megan Wally, Scott Swinson, Nataliya Daniel, Tracey Levett, Andrew James, Hayley Mischief Lord, Marnie McKnight and Lenore Ashmore from Graphiq Design are some of our favourites.
Trying to find those finishing touches to complete the look of your renovation? It’s astonishing how big a difference a few small items can make. Shire-based homewares shops Aquagild, Mindful and Co, Living on Eton, White Sands Collections and Ur Place have got you covered.
Good luck putting the finishing touches on your home. We hope this helps and would love to see all your beautiful renovations on Instagram. Tag @mumsoftheshire so we can see and share your hard work and the (no doubt) stunning end results!
