How to waterproof your bathroom
Wallpaper isn't just an alternative to painting, it's a way to reflect your personal style. It can immediately create some wow factor in an otherwise plain room, make the room look bigger or turn it into a sanctuary from the outside world.
Gone are the days of pre-cutting and pre-soaking your wallpaper before hanging it. There are products out there to make this process simpler and easier by allowing you to paste the wall, not the paper. The wallpaper even comes off in one piece if you want to change it down the track.
Where do we start? How about the countless colours, textures and patterns available. Wallpaper can change the look of a room completely, or even provide a striking backdrop for your own artwork.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
