Two-storey home renovations

Jane Eyles-Bennett - Monday, February 05, 2018

Renovating the facade of a two-storey home is entirely different to renovating the facade of a one-storey home. Use these top tips to make sure your two-storey home reno looks the best it possibly can…

Create a visual anchor
If you were to stand on the road and look along the driveway towards your house, you should be able to get an idea of how your property presents, and how much ‘visual anchoring’ it needs. To visually anchor a property is to give it a sense that the house is anchored in place. It is quite a subtle thing but when done well, it makes an enormous difference to the overall aesthetic of the entire property.

Renovating with Kids

Jane Eyles-Bennett - Friday, November 24, 2017

In my business, I help home owners work out the look, feel and overall design of their renovation rather than the physical implementation. Lucky me - for the most part, my clients manage their own renovations; including navigating the ins and outs of renovating with their children in the picture. If this is you too, I’ve come up with a list of things that should make the process easier. (Read More)

Old Castle Hill Rd, Sydney, NSW


Helen Bednar bought this property in Sydneys' Castle Hill. She had some ideas of what she wanted to do to the property, so called on Hotspace to develop these ideas, fill in the detail and generally steer her in the right direction to make sure the end result was just as she'd envisaged.
 
Not being located near to the Hotspace office, Helen took 100 or so photos of her property and then sent them to us via email.

Once received, as well as discussing the photographs themselves, we discussed the property 'profile' in detail as well as specifically what she wanted to achieve.

From there, we wrote her Renovation Action Plan and this was sent through to her a week or so later.
 
Helen's renovation bible was her Renovation Action Plan. She referred to it for all product and colour choices so she knew exactly what to buy and how to instruct her trades-people. AND she knew what to renovate - and what not to touch for the best outcome for her budget.
 
If you've got a property you're considering renovating and would like to discuss it with us - send us a PRELIMINARY ENQUIRY now.
