Stacey Place, Christchurch


Renovating this property was made simple for the Dubai based owner because she had a clear cut plan of what she was going to do to the property even before landing back in the country! By following a Hotspace Renovation Action Plan prepared specifically for her, she was able to organise pricing and trade-people before returning to start the renovation work. Simple, clever recommendations made the process even easier. In the case of the kitchen we recommended she remove the over-cupboard (to give the illusion of more space), the new bench-top, the new flooring and the new paint colour on the walls.
 
The budget dictated that as much of the fixtures and fittings stay where they were. In this case, we recommended keeping the bath as it was but painting the walls and replacing the vanity, mirror and flooring. Again simple, smart changes = modern result. Cost?...$2,000.
