Renovation At Fairlane Ave

Updating an older style home need not be a major mission. With some good choices and a great team behind your renovation you can achieve fantastic results. Over time homes become tired and dated looking. Day to Day living with people give them a rather worn-in feel – which can be homely or depressing. The line is rather fine. Our customers at Fairlands Avenue, Waterview asked Renovations NZ to rescue their house and make it a 2016 worthy home again. Check out the results! Seeing as the home had original hardwood flooring, it was a great choice to strip this back and re-polyurethane the wood to bring it back to its former glory. Often re-polyurethaning hardwood – if it is still in good condition – is a great investment. It is also a preferred choice if people in your home suffer from allergies. It does not harbour mites or collect dust like carpet does so is a healthier choice. We kept the colour palette for the walls a simple, modern, light grey. This reflects the sunlight that comes into the room and helps keep it bright and spacious feeling. Instead of pendant style lighting fixtures we went with modern downlights which work well with the contemporary feel of the home. The kitchen just screams WOW. It is contemporary, modern, with sleek lines and great usability. Choosing drawers for storage instead of cupboards is a great way of utilising space better – especially for those inconvenient kitchen items like pots and pans. Many home cooks complain of not having enough bench space – this is one thing you can’t complain...

Erson Avenue Royal Oak, Auckland Renovation
What can you do when your budget simply can’t stretch to update your bathroom or kitchen but you want to renovate your home? The answer is simple – do the rest! But how do you incorporate older looking elements in your home to a fresh new interior scheme? Our project at Erson Avenue is a great example of this. Our clients at Erson Avenue did not want to change the existing kitchen or bathroom features but wanted to modernise everything else. As you look through the pictures from our renovation you’ll see that each room looks crisp, modern and bright. This can easily be achieved at your property with the right colour choices and finishes. The kitchen at Erson Avenue was not worn and was in good shape. As the kitchen was not a large space, and the clients finances did not allow for a new kitchen design or installation, we replaced the flooring with modern wood look vinyl and painted the walls, ceiling and window frames. A new tiled backsplash was installed behind the oven and bench to provide a more serviceable and easy to clean surface. A new air extractor was installed above the oven to reduce the amount of moisture in the air whilst cooking and to remove any food smells from lingering in the kitchen. The bathroom kept the original shower, vanity and toilet. But by replacing the flooring with new vinyl that had tan, black and grey undertones it helps to tie in the older looking features and make them look not so out of place. The fireplace was replaced with an air conditioning...
