Boost your Nelson property value

If you’re looking to sell your home, a well-targeted renovation can boost your property value and make you stand out in a crowded market. Do you need to address flow and functionality throughout? Does the kitchen need a revamp? Would new paint and flooring provide enough of a facelift to lighten and brighten the interior? Our home renovation specialists can help you decide which changes would have the most impact for your budget and create a custom concept that delivers exactly what you need.

Renovating dated kitchens and bathrooms can make a huge impact on the overall look and feel of a home, but they are typically the most expensive rooms to renovate. If a full renovation is not possible, your Renovation Consultant will be able to suggest budget-savvy tweaks that can still transform the space. Replacing your hardware and lighting can help achieve a more modern look on a budget, or you could consider painting existing cabinets instead of replacing them to keep your home renovation costs down.

Increasing living space, either through an additional room build, garage conversion, or new deck are also renovations that will increase your home’s value, as well as improving flow and functionality by creating open plan spaces.

Enjoy fabulous functionality

Focusing on increasing flow and functionality is one of the best reasons to renovate your house. Cramped kitchens, narrow hallways, or living rooms that feel isolated can make your home feel smaller than it is. Our talented designers can open up your home so that it feels spacious and enhances everyday living.

Consider if the flow between your kitchen, dining, and living spaces could be improved by changing layouts or removing walls. In the kitchen itself, have a designer help by analysing your workflow and see if the space could be improved with a galley or classic U-shaped design that offers a functional working triangle.

Bathrooms can also benefit from a functional overhaul. Reclaim unused adjoining spaces to push out the walls and increase the floor footprint. Opt for modern back-to-wall toilets, floating vanities, and frameless showers to give the illusion of more space.

Create better indoor-outdoor flow. A beautiful deck with a pergola or louvre roofing can transform your outdoor living area and provide fantastic entertaining options.

Future-proofing your home

Renovating your home isn’t just about aesthetics, it’s about future-proofing your investment. Sometimes the biggest investments and benefits come from things you can’t even see. Installing or upgrading insulation, replacing aged piping and electrical lines, and renewing old and cold glazing will all help keep your home safe, cosy, and warm. Our Renovation Consultants have existing networks of trusted Nelson builders and Nelson contractors to deliver top quality workmanship whether you need plumbing, electrical work, tiling, building, insulation, or anything in between.

Keeping on top of your maintenance is also important. Replace older window frames and weatherboard and protect your home with regular painting. Plus, with rising energy costs, now is a great time to invest in solar energy.

Avoiding relocation costs

If you love your home location but no longer love your home, don’t move – renovate! Instead of trawling the market trying to find the right house to suit your needs, a tailored renovation can create exactly what you want. Refresh tackle renovations big and small, so whether your kitchen is your pain point, or you want to increase your living space and add extra rooms, we have the experience to expertly manage your project from start to finish.

You can avoid costly moving fees, commission and agent fees, and a more costly home in an expensive housing market by renovating and creating exactly the space you need for your family and lifestyle. Major renovations can be daunting, but when you hire a project manager for your renovation from Refresh, it couldn’t be simpler. We take care of every detail, we work with quality suppliers, expert tradespeople, and talented designers, and we know which home renovations require a permit. For a great example of a complete home renovation in Nelson, take a look at this stunning transformation aimed at improving functionality.

Think about creating multi-use spaces

Creating a multi-use space is one of our top renovation tips! You can get maximum benefit from one cost outlay, and you can plan your renovation to grow with you. Whether you want a guest bedroom, home office, yoga studio, rumpus room, or library, our home renovation specialists can help you maximise your investment and create a multi-functional space that you love.

Garage conversions are popular choices and typically offer the room to create both a kids’ lounge or teen hang-out zone, as well as a home office space. Guest suites that won’t be used often can have the addition of a small library space and reading nook for you to enjoy. And clever planning could allow for an office area that could also be used for home workouts. Your Nelson Renovation Consultant can help you plan the perfect multi-use space for your home renovation.
