Focus on your needsStart by listing the different activities that will take place in the room – whether it’s entertaining, relaxation or quiet play – and who will be using it. Consider which furniture pieces are essential and which you can do without. This will help you prioritise your specific needs for the space and clear out anything non-essential.

Solid timber is bestSolid timber always gives a much nicer finish than veneered chipboard or melamine, plus it’s easier to work with. Be wary of laminate furniture that appears to have been left out in the weather. It’s usually made of chipboard, which absorbs moisture and gets distorted. There’s no fixing it, so unless it’s a cabinet door or a maybe tabletop that can be replaced, let it go. If the handles, legs and feet are a nice shape and easily removed, could you use them for something else? Maybe take the legs from an old cabinet and put them on a bedside table. Or take the handles and use them for kitchen drawers.Lots of mid-century furniture was built using teak. While the varnish may have yellowed or peeled, if the piece is solid timber, it can usually be sanded, stripped back and revived with furniture oil or wax. Small mid-century dressers, phone tables, nested or coffee tables and wall shelves are easy to sand and re-varnish or simply paint.

As a young, single professional, Dalecki wanted an open-plan living space that would reflect his sociable lifestyle. A small lean-to in the sunken outdoor yard was replaced with a raised extension to the rear and side of the property, creating a spacious open-plan kitchen, living and dining room, with glazed doors opening onto the now-level deck. The designer stuck to a clean and simple monochrome palette to prevent the large room feeling busy, while carefully selected pops of colour and standout accessories give each zone its own identity. Warm timber flooring links each room, creating a cohesive look throughout. “To save money, I upcycled furniture where possible, such as the dining table that was an old picnic table that got a lick of paint,” he says.
