What areas do you service?

We service Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Canberra and everywhere in between. For homes within the south east Queensland area, we visit in person. Homes outside of SEQ require a remote consultation where you send photographs and details about the property via email/Dropbox etc.

Will you provide contact details for reliable trades-people and suppliers?

Brisbane home owners – Yes, we have a fantastic selection of contractors and trades-people to assist you with your renovation.

Will you manage my tradies for me?

Brisbane home owners – Yes, we can co-ordinate your renovation for you when you use our preferred builder/project manager.

I can pay a regular colour consultant to help me with my renovation – why should I use Hotspace?

Colour has a very important role in improving the look of your home, but there is a lot more involved in creating an amazing transformation than paint colours alone. If you’re only painting your walls, then a colour consultant is probably all you need. However, if you’re renovating your kitchen, bathroom/s, exterior, flooring or anything more and need assistance with selections for cabinetry, bench-tops, tiles, door handles, lighting, floor finishes and any other surfaces, fixtures and fittings, then seek help from an Interior/Exterior design team like Hotspace.

I want to sell. Can you help me update my home before putting it on the market?

Yes! We’ve helped many sellers revamp and revitalise their home ready for sale and we have a track record of adding significant value and appeal as a result. You can see some examples of properties we’ve transformed in our Gallery.

Our builder says he will give us free advice about our renovation. Why is using Hotspace any better?

There are hundreds of possibilities or potential renovation ideas for every property. Builders do generally have great ideas, but it’s the pulling of the ideas together to create a cohesive, designer looking renovation on a pre-determined budget that they may not be quite so skilled at. Also, the more you spend on your renovation with a builder, the more money he makes. A Renovation Design Plan is an excellent tool to give to your builder to follow – to let him know exactly what you want him to do for you.

Should we make-over our home before we sell? Our real estate agent says not to bother and to let the buyer do their own improvements.

Most real estate agents want your listing straight away – not in the future some time; so a make-over is going to really get in the way of that. If you want your property sold faster and at the best price, then investing some time and money up front is critical. You have one chance to impress potential purchasers! We have a proven track record of helping home owners prepare their homes to sell quickly and for more money.

Do you give structural advice or just cosmetic?

Primarily cosmetic including the reconfiguration of rooms/areas and some minor structural renovations such as removing or adding a wall (with approval from a qualified builder).

I'm afraid of over-spending my budget. Can you help?

Of course! Included in our Renovation Design Plans are area-by-area cost estimates that will tell you how much things should cost, helping you keep your renovation spending on track.

Will you help me choose furniture and accessories for my home?

No, this is not something we offer currently.
