    Interiors expert James Treble’s tips on stylish ways to add value to your home


    DRESSING for success doesn’t always apply to what we wear.

    The way we style our homes can make all the difference to how others perceive them and, in turn, how much they are willing to pay for them.

    It is a principle that interior design expert and The Living Room presenter James Treble has seen play out time and time again.

    “We don’t buy houses, we buy homes,” he says.

    “I’ve bought houses with oversized furniture and the wrong colours. I can see past that because that’s my job, but most people can’t.”

    He says focusing on things such as furniture placement and the right colours can make all the difference.

    “You want to flow through a space rather than find it difficult to manoeuvre around,” Treble says.

    Accent pieces are simple and cost-effective additions that will give your home character, Treble says.

    “Artworks can draw people in and can also make them leave quickly,” he says.

    If renovating the biggest value adding rooms in the home – the bathroom and kitchen – are not an option, focus on the finer details.

    “Look at replacing the vanity, updating the mirror, changing the toilet seat and updating the tapware,” Treble says.

    “In the kitchen, look at the taps and sink. Splashback tiles are also something that can be replaced.”

    I can’t say enough good things about Diane.  Attentive, proactive, asked questions to understand our needs/wants. She always made time for us, she was patient when we were picky. We never felt pressured and always felts like she had our best interests in mind. There were many times that my husband and I wondered about how she could be so generous with her time and so accessible. She was always professional and organized and knew exactly what features we were looking for. Thank you, thank you, t…
