A Successful Complete Home Renovation in Hobson

A Successful Complete Home Renovation in Hobson
Our North Shore team recently completed an interior renovation of a home on Hobson St in Auckland City. This home, unlike a lot of the houses we do, wasn’t falling apart, but the owners felt it was time to bring some new life to the house and change the way it looked inside. It was definitely a dated look. BEFORE       As you can see, it was very plain inside and more than likely the original interior from when the house was first built. The whites in the bathroom were starting to get discolored, the carpet was getting dirty and a general makeover was due. Luckily for the owners, we were on the case! AFTER         We made use of various textures to add color and life to the home, from the dark wood floors to the marble look walls in the kitchen and bathroom. We introduced a few select colors to make a nice modern palette which has a bit more life than just painting everything white. New furniture was introduced throughout, finishing off the new theme. Would you like to renovate your home interior? If the time has come for you to begin rebuilding your home, here are some things to consider. Budget should be one of the very first things to take into account. Without a budget that will cover the cost of a renovation, you will not get very far. And you certainly don’t want to be left with a half done project, holes in your walls or uninstalled bathroomware! Time frame is something else that you should consider. Make...

Bathrooms from design to renovation

Bathrooms from design to renovation
No other space in your house will reflect your personality more than your bathroom. It is important that your bathroom reflects the best quality, workmanship and style that your budget can afford. Your bathroom is the one space in your home that can truly set your mood for the rest of the day. With this in mind, when it comes to home improvements there are a few more satisfying than renovating your bathroom. Many people believe they can take on home renovations by themselves however, spending the time and choosing an experienced designer and then contractors will repay you by making a tough project a truly positive experience. Legalities New Zealand has a strict building code and most renovations will need a building consent. Your designer will guide you and in most cases make the applications on your behalf, if they are required. Even if you don’t need building consent, the building work will still need to comply with the Building Code. Under the Building Act 2004, building work (relevant to alterations and renovations) which requires consent includes: Alterations, additions and structural repairs to existing buildings, for example, removing or changing structural load-bearing walls. In some cases, you will need consent to replace all wall linings at once as they may serve a structural purpose. Repairs to leaking buildings also require a consent as does the installation of insulation to existing external walls. The demolition of existing buildings and structures. The removal or relocation of existing buildings. Sitework, for example, earthworks for a new extension. The construction of decks where a person can fall more than 1.5 metres or...

Planning your bathroom renovations?

Planning your bathroom renovations?
Planning Planning is extremely important.  A good idea is to look at other bathrooms, what do you like and don’t like? Look at websites and magazines for ideas.  A bathroom should be a sanctuary, a place to relax and distress, so look at lighting, dimmers and design.  To keep cost down, leave major elements where they are.  It’s a good idea to get a plumber in while renovating to check all those hidden pipes and fitting and also ensure you waterproof your bathroom too, this will prevent major damage, that could go unnoticed and end up costing thousands.  If you are on a budget simple changes can really make a difference. New tiles or a paint job can give the bathroom a whole new look without costing a lot for example.  Also tradespeople, such as plumber and electricians, they need to be on site when they are needed so make sure you discus thoroughly when you need them with your contractor, or will the company you hire do all that for you? Also the fixtures and fitting should be ordered well in advance so they will be ready to be installed at the appropriate time, allow for delays when ordering.  However, discus with your contractor if what your ordering will fit or work in your bathroom. Selecting your contractors Are the fully insured and licenced? Do they have a good reputation, check references thoroughly? Ask around, talk to people, who do they recommend, who do they warn about? Ask questions Be involved Don’t be intimidated, it’s your home and your money. Talk to at least three contractors, and go...

Bathroom renovations before and after

Bathroom renovations before and after
How do you choose a bathroom renovation specialist, what should you do before and after employing someone? These are a couple of great questions to consider. Bathroom renovations before and after The very first thing you need to do is decide on what you want, get a good plan in your head, or better yet on paper on what you want and need in your bathroom. This can take weeks or months and shouldn’t be hurried. You can get many ideas off the internet so spend time researching and figuring out exactly what you want your bathroom to be. Think of all the bathrooms you have used, especially if you have travelled, what did you like? What did you not like? What did you see that was practical and useful? What looked really good and what didn’t. Enjoy this time and don’t rush it. A great start is to keep major elements where they are. Once you have what you want, you need to look at who can provide it for you. Talk to people who have had their bathroom renovated or newly built and ask questions. Who did they use? Who do they recommend? What would they do differently next time etc. The last thing you want to do is end up on a programme like Cowboy Builders. Next research yourself, so you know what’s what and who’s who. Shop around and talk to people in the shops. If you know what your specialist is talking about you are more likely to get what you want and less likely to be caught out or ripped off. This way...
