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)

Kyla St, Alstonville, NSW


As a result of following the Renovation Action Plan we wrote for this property, our client spent just $8,000 on renovating this unit. One of the things we got them to do was paint the timber wardrobe doors and change the door handles. As you can see, this transforms the space entirely.
 
The only changes we recommended in this bathroom were to replace the shower door, replace the vanity and paint the walls. Even though the floor and wall tiles remain as they were, the new adjacent finishes (wall colour, new shower door colour and vanity) easily lighten, brighten and modernise the space.
 
Re-coating the kitchen doors or replacing the bench-top in this kitchen was not appropriate and would have blown this property renovation budget right out. So we recommended a few tweaks instead - painting the window architraves and the cabinetry kick strip and replacing the vertical blinds with venetians.
