Enjoy your home to the fullest

Every family is unique, and Spacemaker’s creative home renovations enable our clients to remain in the neighbourhood they love, in a home that suits their lifestyle and needs.  A well-designed renovation will provide the opportunity for clients to realise the potential of their existing home and enjoy their unique space to the fullest without the need to move.

Are you making the most of your home, or has it outlived its use by date?

Whether your objective is to create great spaces for entertaining, open plan living, light and bright living areas, zones for the kids or a parents retreat, a home renovation is often the best option.

Transforming your existing dated home to improve your lifestyle is an incredibly rewarding experience.  Spacemaker’s talented building designers can vastly improve the functionality and value of your home, making the best use of the existing space and creating a home you will be proud of.

Home improvements can inspire your family to spend more time at home enjoying their new space.  Updating your home with major or minor home extensions or home alterations as your family grows helps the family unit function together, providing room for get-togethers, as well as private space to relax or study.

Renovations are the simplest and most cost effective way to keep your family up to date with today’s housing innovations, technology and trends.  Everybody wants style and comfort in their home to enjoy with friends and relatives.

Spacemaker will listen to your needs and come up with designs for you to consider and approve prior to preparing detailed construction drawings. You are in the driver’s seat.  Our experienced designers will then interpret your wishes and dreams to deliver the best possible outcome, ensuring you maximise the functionality and value of your home.

Stay put

Moving house can be expensive, stressful and time-consuming, while relocating to another suburb can be an emotional time for children, displacing them from their friends and school.  Money spent on agent’s fees, marketing, stamp duty, lawyer’s fees and removalists could be channelled towards a custom designed renovation on your home in an area that you and your family already know and love.

Renovating your home rather than relocating can be a less emotionally and financially demanding way to improve your quality of life.

Lower your cost of living and carbon footprint

It's becoming increasingly common for people to introduce environmentally friendly modifications to their homes. Apart from saving money, energy efficient home improvement measures, such as double glazed windows, low-cost lighting, insulation or water-saving taps, will reduce your footprint on the planet.

Entertain in style

Many older homes were built with small dark rooms, each with individual uses.  Other homes may simply be poorly designed, with impractical layouts and poor zoning obstructing the flow of the home and promoting clutter.  Entertaining in style with friends and family is easy with open living areas that flow and are filled with natural light.  Constructing an external deck or alfresco area with large external door openings creates a beautiful indoor/outdoor living space full of fresh air, allowing you to entertain all year around.

At Spacemaker we love creating amazing multi-functional spaces where our clients can entertain in style. We find that many of our clients are actually the impressed friends of previous clients, who have come to Spacemaker to improve their own home.  In fact over 70% of Spacemaker’s work comes through referrals.

Improve functionality

Many home renovations are simply born from necessity.  If your house is not working for you, a home renovation could vastly improve its functionality, while at the same time ensuring old electrical wiring and plumbing is brought up to date and any unsightly old cracks in plaster are repaired.

Increase the value of your home

A well designed and constructed home renovation by Spacemaker will increase the value of your home, maximising the value of what is often your greatest asset. A simple bathroom or kitchen renovation will boost the value of your home exponentially, and imagine the benefit of adding a beautiful deck and alfresco area to your home.

Be creative

Renovations can be exciting and fun. Not only do you get to be the creative director of the project, you get to see your creativity come to life in your home.

Transform a period home

Living in an old house or within a Heritage overlay doesn't mean you can't bring your home into the 21st century.  Regulatory requirements can be complex, but Spacemaker is well equipped to handle any permit applications for you.  It is a wonderful outcome when we blend a modern renovation with a home’s original features without disturbing the significance of the existing building.

Top tips for a home improvement project

  • Invest in good quality items inside the house (think cabinetry, appliances and hardware) as they'll make a huge difference to the renovation’s overall standard.
  • If budget allows, do the entire project at once, to minimise costs and disruption over the long haul. Otherwise, tackle the area in the house where you spend most of your time first, then chip away at the rest.
  • Plan ahead, especially if your family has changing needs in the form of growing children or ageing household members.
  • Introduce natural light into the home wherever possible and maximise passive solar heating and cooling within the design.
  • Introduce low energy lighting and other environmentally friendly additions to lower your operating costs.
  • Create an alfresco space that will give you year round indoor/outdoor enjoyment.
