How to Design your Dream Kitchen

Jane Eyles-Bennett - Monday, July 17, 2017

The kitchen and living spaces are typically the hub of your house; and whether the others in the 'hub' are helping or just watching, it’s often where you'll connect and bond after a day at the office or school. Most people prefer an open plan layout for this reason; simply to fit all the people who want to congregate there. Since it's such a draw card; it needs to not only function well, but all look great too. (Read More)

Jane Eyles-Bennett - Tuesday, July 04, 2017

Most people assume that doing a full renovation before they sell will result in a higher selling price. Sometimes this is true, but not always. Before deciding whether to renovate to sell, you should do a bit of research and work out if renovating is right for your circumstances; and what areas you should spend your renovation dollar on.  (Read More)

Chapel St, Banyo


What wonderful example of a quick and clever renovation with guidance from Hotspace. Spot the differences - not many are there? ... But they are clever and design-based which is why they work (and that is our specialty!). This client had lived in the home for a number of years, so this renovation was done just before putting the house on the market. The result was a profit of approx $134,000 (before selling costs, legal fees and tax) from investing approx $40,000 in the renovation.
 
Before consulting with Hotspace, this client was going to only do minimal work to the exterior. Our advice was to create a great outdoor space (including the addition of a bi-fold door) - and what a difference it has made.
 
A few simple changes to the kitchen really modernises it and makes it much more appealing to the market that this vendor was targeting.
