    Hi all,

    I'm about to embark on a couple of home renovation projects (full strip out's) however i'm trying to find some online resources for ideas (facades, kitchens, bathrooms etc).

    While i'm used to constructing new properties on brownfield/greenfield sites, renovating old one's is reasonably new to me.

    What online resources do people have (gallery's etc)?

    Thanks
    Al

    I'll get in first with pintrest, but one thing i don't like is the foreign stuff so you need to filter a bit more for aussie stuff.

    Is it an old property as in age, heritage? Are you looking for specific inspiration?

    I also like magazines (the wifes subscription bday present ;) ) as they are current trends and just get a "feel" for a variety of looks and styles

    Thanks @bob shovel . These couple of places are 30 to 40 years old - not period or heritage listed. Inspiration is the right word that i'm looking for...

    While i'm experienced with new builds, not all current trends look good in an older home.

    Thanks
