Renovating your Home

You’ve been thinking about it for some time and now you’re ready to start renovating your home.


Finally you’re going to have the home you’ve dreamed about since you bought; a house that you are really proud to invite family and friends home to.

You’ve watched the TV renovation shows and trawled the internet, gathering hundreds of images together in a pile on your computer or on your kitchen bench.

Only, you’re overwhelmed with ideas. You have so many options and aren’t sure which ones to go ahead with. Should you do the white kitchen and the white splashback or the off-white kitchen with the black splash-back? Or maybe the kitchen like you saw on The Block last season.

And it’s not just the kitchen. You’re struggling with the bathroom and the floors – oh and which colour to paint the walls. What about the exterior? You want that to look nice too, right?

The thing is – you sort of know what you want, but you’ve got paralysis. You’re too scared to do anything in case it ends up being a disaster. Working within the confines of your existing homes’ style is a different proposition altogether than a newly built home where you can start the design from scratch.

You'd be grateful for someone else’s opinion, so you ask friends and family what they think you should do. With ten more ideas in the mix, now you’re further away from resolving your renovation to-do list than before.

Perhaps you’ve thought of engaging a renovation or design consultant but worried you won’t get what you want. Maybe you think that using a designer means your renovation will cost more.

Imagine a renovation designer who could unscramble your ideas, offer alternative options and then combine all of the best concepts into an easy-read but cohesive and comprehensive Renovation Action plan for you to transform your home with. Imagine a renovation actually costing less as a result of using a designer? Sound counter-intuitive? It’s not.

The Hotspace ‘We Design, You Do’ concept offers you unparalleled interior and exterior design help without the usual expense of an Interior Designer or Architect. We provide you with all the colours, finishes and product details for your renovation and then you implement them yourself – either by co-ordinating your own trades-people, using a project manager or DIY’ing all or some of the renovation yourself. We give you cost estimate breakdowns too, so you’ll know how much you should expect to spend on each part of your renovation.

On average, we save our clients 20+ hours of shopping around / deliberating / researching ideas and renovation costs.

And with ongoing telephone, sms and email support built into many of our packages, you’ll never be alone in making decisions or dealing with problems throughout your renovation process.

 “We recently had a Renovation Action Plan done by Hotspace. We knew our property had potential but didn’t know where to start! Jane listened and understood our vision for modernising our family home and creating street appeal. She was very clever with her renovation ideas and inspiration. She then provided us with a detailed action plan.
We were so happy with our plan; it was extremely thorough and we constantly refer to it! By getting a renovation plan it has saved us so much money by not making expensive mistakes. Everything in the plan has worked well for us. The plan was so thorough and I would recommend Hotspace to anyone considering renovating or adding value to their property to get it right the 1st time.”

With 25+ years in the design industry, we are a wealth of knowledge and experience about everything to do with colour and finishes selections for new homes and renovations.
