To Call, or Not to Call – Professional Furniture Restoration
In your home, there are many projects that you can do yourself. DIY is a great way to save money. It also gives you the added pleasure of knowing you put in the time and effort to complete a project. However, there are some projects that should be left to the professionals, such as professional furniture restoration and cabinet refinishing.
Furniture restoration may seem like it’s easy, but to do it right requires a lot of time and training. French polishing furniture, for example, takes technique and experience to do right. A bad finish can completely ruin a piece of furniture. If you care about your furniture, getting a professional to restore it will add to its life.
Painting is one home update that homeowners like to do themselves. It’s fun (sometimes) and relatively easy to do. However, painting a wall is much different than painting or refinishing cabinets or other furniture restoration in your home.
Painting or refinishing cabinets can be time-consuming and tedious if you don’t know what you’re doing. Cabinets are a focal point in a home and tend to be scrutinised by buyers. Getting cabinets done professionally will pay off in the future.
When it comes to furniture and cabinets, getting a professional to do the work could save you a lot of hassle. Don’t wait for that moment when you tell yourself, “I should have just called them to do it.” Get it done right the first time.

White is the New Black
When considering what colour to paint your kitchen cabinets, there are many factors to consider. If one major concern is market appeal, the team at Dianella Polishing suggests going with a shade of white.
White, and even shades of white, create a clean and airy look in a kitchen. When a kitchen is white, the space feels bigger. And in Australia, home buyers want this.
Cabinets in white are versatile and practical, appearing in retro, traditional, and even modern kitchens. White kitchens leave a blank slate for new home owners to let their imaginations run wild.
At Dianella Polishing, about 90% of the kitchen cabinets we paint are done in white and off-white. So if you are stuck debating between that shade of banana yellow and fuschia frenzy, might be best to stick with a simple, timeless white.
