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)

How's this for a $20,000 renovation?

Worried that they weren't 100% sure what was going to add the most value to their property, Mick and Sherralee Brougham called on Hotspace to design their renovation for them. They followed the instructions we gave them in their Renovation Action Plan - and with a bit of elbow grease of their own, got this excellent result for just a little over $20,000 (entire reno - inside and out!).
 
Being based in Adelaide, Mick and Sherralee took 100 or so photos and sent them here to Hotspace (in Queensland). We then analysed the photos and discussed the property in detail with them over the telephone. Next, we prepared their Renovation Action Plan and within 10 days they had received our recommendations from us.
 
Armed with their Renovation Action Plan, Mick and Sheralee went shopping and then started their renovation the next week. Without concern that they were making any bad colour or product choices (because they just bought what we recommended in their Renovation Action Plan), their renovation started immediately and was finished in under 2 months.
 
If you want a reno result this good - better call Hotspace!
