The Project: The home was an original 70’s style home. It was worn out and in need of an update. The bedrooms were dull and had no built in robes. The kitchen was small there was only one bathroom and internal lighting was poor with inadequate windows. The outside entertaining area was difficult to access through a small side door and as such not used regularly. A freestanding fibro garage was down at the rear of the block.
Client Wanted: The client had several discussions with the Designer to create a workable plan. Major consideration was put towards the use of natural light inside the home as well as the everyday flow of the space within the home.
Our Solution: An extension to the rear of the home and the removal of some internal walls to create space for an en suite. Install a new larger kitchen plus laundry and create a larger dining space to open up the living areas to link with the entertaining area at the rear of the home.
The Result: The end result is a fresh open look for the home. Areas flow easily and invite you to enter. The kitchen is now the centre of the living areas and overlooks the rear garden. Built in robes were installed in all bedrooms, a computer nook was created and a new laundry. New windows were installed in several areas of the home to give a light open feel. The existing bathroom was totally renovated creating a modern open look and feel. A new double garage created adjacent to the front of the home opens up to the side yard. The client had a lot of input into the decision making process and was happily involved in labouring, painting and landscaping.
