Melbourne Renovation Contractors

Outdoor area Melbourne

If you have a renovation project in mind, you’ve come to the right place. Refresh Renovations’ Melbourne contractors provide local homeowners with bespoke designs and builds, specifically created with your style and budget in mind. We also offer end-to-end project management - monitoring every stage of your renovation in order to maintain a set schedule and budget. 

Why Refresh? 

Refresh was designed to provide you - our customer - with the best renovation experience possible. Stories of renovations gone wrong are all too common in the residential sector, and Refresh’s processes have been designed to improve the homeowner experience. Managing a renovation without the time, knowledge or experience to do so can easily lead to miscommunication, overspending and a whole lot of unnecessary stress. That’s why Refresh offers homeowners an end-to-end project management system that covers design, construction and the final decorative touches. By providing every customer with a bespoke design, we are able to customise your renovation to your lifestyle needs and budget. What’s more, everyone on our team is a specialist in their field - from our building design specialists to our renovation builders. This helps us to provide you with a final result that is of the highest quality. 

What renovation services does Refresh offer?

Refresh’s systems, processes and network of contractors and suppliers allow us to provide renovation designs and builds according to your specifications - depending on project feasibility. Our services include:
- Extensions and additions
- Kitchen renovations
- Bathroom renovations
- Basement, garage and loft conversions
- Luxury and custom renovations
- Home restorations
- Bathroom renovations
- Home additions
- Home extensions
- Basement renovation
- Kitchen renovation

...and anything else you can think of!

What will it cost to do the project?

Refresh’s bespoke design process means that every renovation project is designed in a way which brings your ideas, our expertise and your budget into one concise plan. For this reason, it is difficult to say what your project will cost without having assessed your ideas and the costs that will be involved in bringing them to life. That being said, most projects tend to fall within a range of basic, mid-range and high-end renovations. Smaller projects we have carried out in the past, such as individual bathroom or kitchen renovations, tend to fall within the range of $30,000 - $80,000. However, designs which include significant structural work or luxury features may exceed this. Our larger projects, such as home extensions or full home renovations, usually exceed $150,000.  
*Note: these costs are rough estimates only and are subject to change. For a cost estimate accurate to your specific project, please consult your local renovation specialist.

Will you take care of any council applications required for this project?

Yes. Your Refresh Renovations specialist will advise you on whether or not your project will require development approval, a planning permit or a building permit. Likewise, if you live within a heritage zone, or if any specific regulations need to be adhered to when carrying out your renovation, Refresh will take care of the paperwork and carry out every detail to a high standard.

What are some important things to be aware of when renovating in Melbourne?

Depending on where you live in Melbourne and the style of home you reside in, different rules and regulations may apply to your renovation. If you are planning on renovating an older home, be aware that Melbourne has strict subflooring requirements in place which help to improve a home's ventilation and reduce termite damage. Alternatively, if you are considering renovating your apartment, you will likely need the approval of your building’s body corporate before any work can begin. The benefit of having your project managed by Refresh is that we will be able to advise you on the regulations and costs involved in your specific project before any work begins. 

What are some of the current renovation trends in Melbourne?

Open plan layouts and innovative designs are key to many Melbourne home renovations - especially with townhouses and apartments being the dwelling of choice for many residents. Many Melbourne homeowners aspire for luxury designs, with modern features and art deco elements being common stylistic choices within many renovations. That being said, sometimes a classic look is more appealing - plenty of homeowners (especially those living in older villas) may choose to restore their home rather than update it, decorating with elegant Victorian-style furnishings.

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 Creative spaces renovation consultant will manage every aspect for you - working to keep everything on track.

Step 1

Briefing / Initial Consultation

The first thing your Creative spaces 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 Creative spaces consultant can arrange for an architectural concept to be drawn up. This allows your Creative spaces 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 Creative spaces 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 Creative spaces 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 Creative spaces consultant to ensure that all Council documentation is completed and you have the necessary Code of Compliance documentation. Congratulations – your renovation is complete!
