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)

Tradewinds Ave, Coolum, QLD


I don't think words can describe this transformation! Our client bought this property to live in for a year and then renovate to eventually sell.

To make sure she spent her money on doing just the right things to raise the value of the property most significantly - and to design the property in a way that was most appealing to potential buyers, Samantha called on Hotspace to prepare a Renovation Action Plan for her.
 
Being located reasonably close to our offices, we visited the property in person to review the property with Samantha. Her brief was clear; she wanted to totally transform the property (in line with the neighbouring few properties) and sell for a BIG profit.
 
Everything Samantha needed to guide her in the right direction was included in her Renovation Action Plan. From concept designs for the new facade, to all interior and exterior colours, to bathroom and kitchen specifications and layouts, to the smaller details of lighting, window dressings, accessories and landscaping.

Have you got a property you could use our 'fresh opinion' and design capabilities on? If so, send us a 'Preliminary Enquiry' or give us a call.
