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)

Nelson Place, Carindale, QLD (NEW-BUILD HOME)


"I can't recommend Jane from Hotspace highly enough. My husband and I have different taste and she combined both our concepts into a beautiful design. We definitely would not have been able to create such an amazing home without her direction and support. We didn’t know where to start so it was great to have the guiding hand of a professional to help us. Hotspace chose most of the finishes for our new home (we had chosen some already and they worked in with those). We knew the look we loved but weren’t sure how to achieve it. Jane took the worry out of our selections; we knew it would look great and so didn’t have to second guess ourselves. Hotspace also helped us pull together the furniture and décor for almost every room in the house. If we were to build again or buy another home, I wouldn't hesitate to use Hotspace again to create a timeless design for me and my family."
