Hobson Street Home Renovation Project

Hobson Street Home Renovation Project
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 sure you can live around the project...

Before and After – Renovation Ellen Avenue Hillcrest

Before and After – Renovation Ellen Avenue Hillcrest
When stepping into Ellen Avenue Hillcrest, you could be forgiven for thinking that you had fallen through a time warp. Tones of peach, orange, yellow and brown set the scene throughout this house. It had been some time since any updates had been made and time had not been kind to this solid little building. Maintain to Profit were brought on board to see what could be done to make this house back into a welcoming, enjoyable home. We think the before and after shots showcase the transformation perfectly. The Lounge Orange. The lounge was orange. From the wallpaper to the carpet and the time worn ceilings – this room needed a makeover! Maintain to Profit stripped the wallpaper off the walls and prepped them for painting, filling any dents and sanding before painting the walls and ceiling white. Because this room was not a large space, having white walls and ceiling instead of contrasting walls and ceiling invites light into the room. The orange carpet you see in the lounge was throughout the house. It was dated, worn and quite unsightly. This carpet (and colour!) was removed and a new soft, hard wearing carpet was re-laid in a very muted grey tone.  By keeping muted colours in a home, this allows your colour scheme to last almost forever and you can give your home it’s own personalised touch by using pops of color in your furniture and décor. In the long run it is a much cheaper way of staying close to the current trends than having to completely redecorate. The Master Bedroom   The master bedroom is...

The kitchen has always been the heart of the home, but now thanks to reality cooking shows, building shows and the like, a huge spotlight has been shone on the family kitchen.  Cooking is back in fashion thanks to the likes of “my kitchen rules”.  In response to this new age, kitchen makers are now in hot demand.  Kitchen renovations have also increased because the cost of housing has increased so home owners are deciding rather than sell and buy again, to renovate.
