Add a Second Storey

1

Price from $180,000

Few renovations create such a vast amount of extra space as a second storey addition. Whether you’re planning for a family, you need a parents’ or teens’ retreat, or you’ve finally decided to capitalise on those views, going up may well be the answer. No matter what you plan to have up there — all the bedrooms, just the kids’ rooms, just your bedroom, the living areas, or some other combination — the end result will be a lot more usable space, more convenience and more comfort than ever before. And the best thing about it? We’ll make it look like it’s always been there! An alternative to adding a second storey is extending your ground floor instead

Modernise your Home

Price from $60,000

Would you love to live in something as fresh and modern as the homes you see on TV? You can. And there’s absolutely no need to build an entirely new house. It’s surprisingly easy to update your home’s façade to give it a contemporary street appeal. And your kitchen? Why not transform it into a stunning, yet serviceable, room that’s genuinely part of your living area? Maybe with an island bench, a breakfast bar or a study nook. Make it a hub for the entire family. And what about the bathroom or laundry? It’s amazing the difference contemporary tap-ware, modern tiles and a new colour scheme can make. Whatever your taste and ideas, if you’re after a home that feels brand new, but you don’t want to build a brand new home, we can help you.

Create an open plan living area

Price from $90,000

Nothing gives you that unhurried feeling of space and shared relaxation like an intelligently designed open-plan living area. You don’t need a big home to do it either. It’s about innovative renovation ideas and a clever use of space, to create a seamless integration of indoor and outdoor living spaces. To create private outdoor areas that celebrate the best of your local weather conditions, and protect you from the worst. To take advantage of views — even if they’re only pool or garden views. In other words it’s about year-round entertaining and easy living.

Converting a 3×1 into a 4×2

Price from $95,000

It may have served you well up until now, but there comes a time when a 3-bedroom 1-bathroom home becomes a little too constrictive. Whatever the reason, innovative renovation ideas like an extra bedroom and bathroom can transform your home from a neat and tidy starter to a spacious residence. Whether you use the fourth bedroom as an actual bedroom or you plan to make it a guest room, study, gym or dressing room, it’s guaranteed to add great value to your home, should you decide to sell one day. The same applies to the second bathroom, which you can make as luxurious as you like, with a spa, double shower, stone benchtop and space-aplenty. No matter what your long term goals, our design team will ensure the additions fit the rest of your home seamlessly, and they make the best use of all the space you have.

Create a master retreat

Price from $100,000

A master retreat is a decadent way to finally get the peace and privacy you crave — and deserve. Imagine a large master suite, a resort-style ensuite and a dressing room that would be perfectly at home on the set of ‘Sex and the City’. In fact, why not throw in a sitting room too? Or a study? The overall effect is a space where you can relax together, safe in the knowledge you won’t be disturbed. It’s one of those renovation ideas that makes best use of all the available space, with a flowing, luxurious design, often without doors, creating the sense of five-star holiday opulence, all in the comfort of your own home.
