If you want renovating tips for your home, Aussies tend to look to one man: Neale Whitaker.

Neale is currently a judge on The Block, co-host of Love It Or List It and writes stories for Vogue magazine on renovation and interior design.

Today, Neale stopped in to Hit105 to share some renovation hacks with Stav, Abby and Matt and guys, we've had a breakthrough!

Matt revealed that he's currently renovating his bathroom and kitchen and Abby told Neale that he had been quoted as saying that renovating those two rooms is a no go.

Neale then clarified that he didn't mean don't renovate them at all, but that people don't HAVE to renovate their bathrooms and kitchens to increase the price of their homes.

"Don't feel you have to do the kitchen and the bathroom in order to achieve a better sale price if you're selling.

"A lot of people spend a lot of money doing the kitchens and the bathrooms because they think they have to before they sell, and then they overcapitalise and they don't get it back."

Abby explained that a simple cover on the drawers of your bathroom could make the space look completely different and Neale agreed, he also said that shopping at Kmart, IKEA and Target is just as good if you need items to refresh the space!
