Hampton East Renovation (House No.7)

We were first approached about this home makeover in March 2023. This project was one of necessity as well as, style/design. This 2005 build, surprisingly had quite a few functional issues which required urgent attention - leaking showers, burned cabinetry, poor natural lighting, malfunctioning down lights and water damage.

The issues were addressed as part of the overall project. What started as a mini makeover, quickly turned into a half house Reno !! I mean, why not?! We were already there hehe

  • Style: Modern Hamptons/Earthy 
  • Timeframe: 10 weeks 
  • Start: 24th June 2023 
  • End: 25th August 2023

What we did:

  • Removed old Kitchen and Installed all new cabinetry, fittings, appliances and stone 
  • Stripped Ensuite, reframed, created a niche, plastered, tiled, installed new fittings and French barn door
  • Removed rotting Bifolds and installed new completely frameless Bifolds 
  • Built an end to end bulkhead and plastered to accomodate a new freestanding fireplace, entertainment wall and kitchen
  • Built new steel frame for fireplace plinth, Installed new family room cabinetry with stone top, custom bench seat and installed Steccawood panelling. 
  • Installed wainscoting panelling in hallway 
  • Removed old entry door and sidelight with a new, much larger custom door entry door
  • Installed new brass door hardware 
  • Created a new lighting plan, relocated heating vents, replaced old halogens with LED’s, installed feature pendants/wall sconces and Brass Buster & Punch switches/GPO’s
  • Sanded existing Tasmanian Oak floors to reveal oak tones under the existing red/orange colour 
  • Installed new linen window dressings 
  • Lots of painting, cleaning and caulking to finish off 

The end result is quite breathtaking. It’s warm/cosy with lots of details which work in harmony with eachother. Finished with some basic styling to compliment the carefully selected handmade furniture, creating the perfect modern, sea-side home. Lucky homeowners!! This one’s a beauty. 

As always - a huge shoutout to our team of trades and suppliers for bringing the vision to life xx
