Our clients didn’t want to move from their home in the foothills of Adelaide. Built in 1999, the single storey, ”Reproduction Federation” style home had the typically heavy features of the era prominent both internally and externally. The clients wanted to exchange these for a more modern and contemporary style. An extensive renovation was carried out to transform the house into a warm contemporary home.
The major internal freshen up consisted of: Ensuite, Main Bathroom, Laundry, Kitchen, Fireplace and Flooring throughout the Kitchen/Dining/Living area.
Marrying in with the adjacent bathroom, the selection of complementary tones for new tiled flooring, splashback tiling and a reconstituted stone benchtop completed a low-key upgrade.
Some general house detailing was undertaken to tie in the new modern feel to the renovated areas. The original cream walls and doors and the two tone ceiling cornices were repainted. Internal walls and ceilings have been repainted in Dulux Mt Aspiring and architraves and doors in Dulux Rottnest Island. Electrically operated Silhouette blinds replaced the heavy curtains in dining and living areas. All visible power points and light switches were replaced with Clipsal Satin Zen plates. While all existing Brass plated door handles were replaced with Satin Silver handles.
As a result, the major overhaul of this home has converted it from a heavy “faux Federation” style home into a stunning, warm contemporary and timeless home.
