Increase the value of your Northcote Home without breaking the bank!

You say you’re getting tired of the same old look in your Northcote home, but you don’t want to spend a fortune on redecorating? Instead of buying new furniture, think about some easy updates that will renew your Northcote home and endure for years.

New light fixtures.

Dress up any room with new light fixtures. The possibilities are endless, from ceiling-embedded can lights to elaborate chandeliers.

New window treatments.

A room can really be transformed by dressing windows in new ‘clothes.’ Whether you go with conventional drapes in a new color, or explore the various types of shades available, don’t miss the chance to improve your home’s energy efficiency by investing in Insulated window treatments. They will make your home more comfortable and save money too.

Fresh paint.

It takes some time and effort, but nothing changes a room like a fresh coat of paint. If your room is dark, a bright color will be cheering and reflect light, brightening those dark corners. If you have plenty of light, you can indulge in some deep, rich colors. Have a look at Resene’s website for the latest New Zealand colour trends.


Mirrors can do wonders for a small room, making it feel expansive. A mirror placed on a wall across from or perpendicular to a window will lighten a dark room.

Built-in shelving.

These are a great way to store possessions without taking up too much space. They’re also a great place to showcase collectibles and/or feature décor items.

Ceramic tile.

Ceramic tiles can be used in many ways to spruce up a space, whether used on floors, walls or countertops.
