Circumstances change, resulting in a home that no longer fits your lifestyle. Customising your property can mean the difference between entering Sydney’s competitive housing market in search of a better alternative, and creating your dream home exactly where it stands.
Make the changes you need to stay in your beloved home with an expertly designed and well-executed home extension. Get in touch with a local Renovation Consultant to arrange a no-obligation consultation where you can discuss how to make your home work better for you.
Home extensions offer an incredible opportunity to optimise your existing home to suit your needs. But where do you start? At Refresh, our Renovation Consultants work locally so you can trust that your home will be taken care of by experts who truly understand your property and the surrounding area.
All our Renovation Consultants are backed by a network of industry professionals. This means they have a wealth of experience at their fingertips, which you benefit from. Whether your home extension requires specialist tilers or reliable plumbers, architectural engineers or interior designers, or all of the above, you will receive the expertise your renovation requires. However, we also keep it simple. Your Renovation Consultant will remain your single point of contact, bridging the gap between you and the team behind your home extension.
In addition to this streamlined communication model, the 5-step Refresh method focuses on thorough planning in the early stages. Spending the extra time in the beginning helps your home extension stay on track. While we always aim to deliver your project on time and within budget, our ultimate mission is to ensure that you enjoy the process and have a stress-free experience.
With more time being spent at home during recent years, many North Sydney and Hornsby homeowners are reassessing the space within their home and discovering a home extension could make a big difference.
Home extensions that allow for work spaces are one of the most common reasons for a renovation as people seek a designated area from which to work from home, rather than a temporary set up in a spare room or at the kitchen table.
Having extra space for growing children to enjoy the company of friends or return to the comforts of home are further reasons for home extensions. Adding space to existing lounges and living areas, or at the end of the house near the garage, can ensure minimal disruption to the rest of the property when undergoing a renovation projectl.
