Inspiring Fairfield Home Extension and Renovation

Discover Spacemaker’s transformation of this Melbourne property

Doubling the size of this charming Fairfield home while maximising the space of its plot of land were two of the most important considerations for the homeowners when creating a more practical, family-friendly and spacious dwelling. This exciting, innovative extension and renovation project was completed by the custom home design team at Spacemaker in the inner Melbourne suburb of Fairfield. As well as a modern and stylish home with premium fixtures and luxurious touches throughout, the homeowners now have plenty of room for their growing family.

The homeowners had one ultimate goal in mind–customising their home to more comfortably accommodate the needs of their growing family. They wanted additional bedrooms, a more functional kitchen and a bigger living space to spend quality family time together every day.

They sought the services of experienced custom home builders Spacemaker Home Extensions in Melbourne to fulfil their vision of a dream family home. The Spacemaker team took on the challenge with a flawless action plan—expanding upward to create a second storey, cleverly doubling the size of the home while working within the existing dimensions of the plot. With twice as much space, the opportunities to create a custom family-friendly home and spacious living areas were endless!


First, Spacemaker demolished the rear section of the house, which included the existing kitchen, meals area, bathroom, laundry, storeroom, alfresco and toilet.

Our team extended the ground floor to create a modern kitchen and spacious pantry along with a dining area, family room, and an alfresco with its own outdoor kitchen. We also added a new laundry.

Living space alterations included a guest bedroom and a generously-sized powder room with a shower. The master bedroom was upgraded with a walk-in robe and ensuite bathroom to add comfort and luxury.

The second-storey extension boasts two new bedrooms and a large sitting room that doubles as a fun space for the kids to play. A modern and stylish bathroom along with a separate toilet and powder room have also been added.

Impressive makeover with masterful design and clever use of space

Designed with practicality and comfort in mind, the new kitchen seamlessly caters to the family’s requirements, while complementing the spacious new dining area and family room. The alfresco area with its convenient outdoor kitchen will see the homeowners enjoy many family meals together, and there’s plenty of space for them to entertain family and friends. At the same time, the kids and adults can enjoy the benefits of fresh air, sunshine and outdoor activities from within the comfort of their home.

The first-floor extension fulfils the homeowners’ desire for additional space and improved livability in their home. The kids have plenty of room to play and be as creative indoors as they would be outdoors with the new family-friendly living area. The new bathroom adds practicality and elegance, completing the new upper level of the home.

New flooring was installed throughout the entire home to cater for the additional wear and tear resulting from the growing family’s increased foot traffic without compromising aesthetics and quality. All walls and ceilings were plastered, creating the ultimate fluid finish to complement the new additions.

Throughout the internal and external renovation processes, Spacemaker collaborated with many exceptional suppliers and tradespeople, including Aspect Windows who provided the second storey’s custom-made timber windows, Reece Plumbing for their beautiful bathroom fixtures, Precision’s gleaming shower screens, Eric Jones Stairs for the tasteful staircase to the second floor, and Mitre10 for supplying premium carpentry materials. Supreme Green was responsible for the impressive landscaping, finished off with a fibreglass swimming pool from Leisure Pools. By working closely with market leaders, Spacemaker has ensured that every detail of this home transformation has the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship.

This breathtaking, newly extended and renovated home is now a welcoming and comfortable haven for the growing family, providing the space and functionality they require, while reflecting a contemporary and stylish design–a perfect fit for the Melbourne inner suburb of Fairfield. The homeowners and their family are more than delighted with their home renovation and look forward to creating many happy memories over the years to come!
