Save or Splurge with Ash Hall @reno_rookies_

Hello fellow renovators! Matt and Ash from @reno_rookies_ here again.


Our third major tip is a fun one; splurge on the good stuff.


There are some things you can’t skimp on and unfortunately they cost a fortune, but they’re worth it. The driveway is the first thing you see as you approach the house, and if its damaged or dated it instantly drags down the façade and undermines all the other hard work you’ve already done. Replace it with something luxe like exposed aggregate or small pebbles, don’t just repaint it, because no matter what colour you use or how professional the finish is, ugly old painted concrete always looks like ugly old painted concrete. In our current house we forked out the chashola for an exposed aggregate drive-way and now that I’ve recovered from the small heart attack I had after reading the quote, I couldn’t be happier. Our entrance looks luxe and complete and will last forever.
