In any renovation, prioritising health and comfort is important. For many homeowners in Waikato, this means putting insulation, double glazing, and heat pump installations at the top of their renovation priorities.
Bathroom and kitchen renovations are popular throughout New Zealand, and Waikato follows the lead. Homeowners often opt to modernise these well-used areas aiming to improve both functionality and aesthetics. Given the prevalence of older homes in Waikato, renovations are often necessary for homeowners seeking to restore and upgrade their aging homes.
A common question we are asked at Refresh Waikato is what are the best ways to add value to your home? So we've put together our top three recommendations for improving your home to increase the value of your property.
Upgrade your bathroom: By updating your bathrooms fixtures and fittings, changing the layout and refreshing the design.
Invest in a kitchen renovation: Your kitchen is the heart of your home so focusing your attention here is a great way to see positive returns. Think a new layout, a modern design and modern appliances, to boost its overall appeal.
Expand living space: There are a range of different ways to expand your living which may include, a kitchen extension, a garage conversion or a loft extension. Depending on your homes current layout and what your specific needs are will allow us to work with you to find the best option.
The cost of renovating a house in Waikato varies based on factors such as the scope of the project, size of the house, materials used, and labor costs. Let’s look into some examples to get an idea of what different renovation can cost.
This small bathroom renovation in Waikato cost the newly retired homeowner roughly $35,700 and included unforeseen asbestos removal.

When managing your renovation, your local Renovation Consultant in Waikato will follow Refresh’s renovation approach to complete the project. Designed to tailor your lifestyle, needs, and taste, within budget and time they will use the bespoke 5-step process:
Initial Consultation: Your Renovation Consultant will begin by understanding your goals and desires for your home transformation in an initial consultation. This is when you share your ideas, and your consultant will customise them to align with your property and budget.
Concept Design: In the next step, your Waikato Renovation Consultant will initiate the creation of concept designs. These drawings bring your ideas to life and provide a clear understanding of the project’s feasibility. It also offers an opportunity to make design changes.
Detailed Planning: Now, the concept drawings are made into working drawings. This is the last step before construction starts, so if any changes need to be made, now is your chance to bring them up. In this step, you will also be provided with a fixed-quote as well as a contract.
Construction: See your vision come into life! Your Waikato Renovation Consultant will oversee and manage every part of the build, so you can relax. They will work to ensure your project stays on track aiming for completion within the specified timeframe and budget.
Project Completion: In the final phase, your consultant will manage all required Council documentation and provide you with the necessary Code of Compliance documentation. Congratulations, your renovation is now officially complete!
