Why choose Refresh Renovations?

A house extension is one of the largest home renovation projects you can undertake, involving multiple tradespeople – builders, electricians, decorators, and roofers. Refresh Renovations will carefully manage your project from ideation to execution and ensure that all work is completed to the highest quality standards.
Your successful renovation journey begins with an initial consultation with your local Canberra Renovation Consultant. They’ll discuss your ideas and tailor these to suit your budget and property type. Concept drawings will show how your finished house extension will look, and you’ll be able to review and make changes to these before any work begins. You’ll also receive a detailed breakdown of how much your extension will cost.
Refresh Renovations are here to change how the world renovates, and our approach has been proven to save time and money. Your Renovation Consultant will negotiate prices with their trusted network of contractors and suppliers, and carefully schedule when different trades are required on site. This process underpins your project being completed on time and within the agreed budget.
You can track the progress of your renovation using the Refresh online portal, and your Renovation Consultant will be available to answer any queries. They’ll manage everything from start to finish, enabling you to carry on with normal life while your extension is being built.

What house extension ideas are popular in Canberra?

Whether you’re looking to add a single-storey or second-storey extension, there are plenty of exciting options to choose from. Here are some of the most popular house extension ideas in Canberra.
Glass kitchen extensions have become increasingly popular and are a lovely way to create an easy flow between indoor and outdoor living, particularly if you consider a covered deck as well. Extending your kitchen to create a larger kitchen/dining area is a great idea for those who like to entertain family and friends, and enhances good conversation and socialising while food is being prepared.
Next to Darwin, Canberra has the youngest median age of all capital cities in Australia (35.4 years) which may help to explain why playrooms and home offices are also popular choices for single-storey extensions. Playrooms can be readily converted into a rumpus room for teens in later years. And, even the most compact of home offices makes it easier to work without distractions and switch off at the end of the day.
Creating an en suite is a popular option for those who opt for a second-storey extension. The extra comfort and convenience can also make your property more attractive to potential buyers in the future. An additional bedroom is also a practical and popular choice
Whatever you have in mind, your local Canberra Renovation Consultant will provide all the advice and support you need to start bringing your house extension idea to life.

Your Style,
Your Budget,
Our Expertise

Refresh®’s process supports a bespoke design and build: a renovation tailored to your lifestyle requirements and taste. Your local House Extension renovation consultant will manage every aspect for you - working to keep everything on track.

Step 1

Briefing / Initial Consultation

The first thing your House Extension renovation consultant will want to know is what it is that you want to achieve through your home renovation. In this initial consultation, you can throw all of your ideas on the table - your consultant will then tailor them to your property and budget.

Step 2

Concept and Feasibility

With a clear understanding of your renovation goals, your House Extension consultant can arrange for an architectural concept to be drawn up. This allows your House Extension consultant to assess whether or not your ideas are feasible, and allows you to point out any changes you would like in the design - before any work begins.

Step 3

Working Drawings and Costing

Next, working drawings will be developed. These will take into account the engineering, structural, design and aesthetic decisions you have made. If you would like to make any further changes, now is the time to do so. From there, your House Extension consultant will present you with a fixed-quote as well as a contract.

Step 4

Build / Construction Stage

Finally, you get to witness your project transition from the page to your property! Every aspect of the build will be managed for you, allowing you to carry on with your everyday life. Your House Extension consultant will do everything in their power to keep your project on schedule so that it can be completed within a set timeframe and budget.

Step 5

Your Finished Renovation

The final stage is for your local House Extension consultant to ensure that all Council documentation is completed and you have the necessary Code of Compliance documentation. Congratulations – your renovation is complete!
