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.

Eskdale Rd, Auckland, NZ


This property originally had quite a ‘flat’, uninteresting looking exterior, so our advice to this client was to add depth to it by painting the block base only – they didn’t even need to paint the weatherboards to create this fresh, sharp look. We recommended a colour that was darker than the original colour but that would tie through well to the existing weatherboards. We also suggested within their Renovation Action Plan to paint the garage door and window sills, as well as some minor landscaping changes. A great result for just a few thousand dollars!
