What types of home renovations are common in Waikato?

Health and comfort should always come first in a renovation and, for many Waikato homeowners, this means putting insulation, double glazing and heat pump installations at the top of their renovation wish-lists. Bathroom and kitchen renovations are popular throughout New Zealand and Waikato is no different - with many homeowners opting to modernise these highly used spaces and improve their layouts. There are also plenty of older homes in Waikato, so many homeowners find themselves renovating out of necessity to restore and upgrade ageing properties. Read about our old home renovations here.

What are the current home design trends for renovations in Waikato?

Modern minimalism

Create more space in your home with the adoption of a minimalist mindset. Clean lines and functional design are foundational pillars for this kind of modern home.

Sustainable homes

Sustainability is a core value for many Kiwis, and that’s often reflected in home design. Think energy efficient designs, the use of reclaimed timber or other recycled materials, solar power, and rainwater harvesting. 

Inspired by nature

Embrace the beauty of the Waikato region with a home design that features large windows and expansive outdoor living space for incredible indoor-to-outdoor flow. 

Mixing old and new

With so many heritage homes around the Waikato region, homeowners often choose to honour the traditional look of the structure whilst adding a contemporary twist. Imagine an early 1900’s villa exterior with a modern kitchen and open-plan living area, for example.

How can I renovate my house to achieve a more modern look?

More and more, Kiwis are turning towards modern designs to add function and style to their home. ‘Modern’ doesn’t mean ‘sterile’ or ‘cold,’ either. Modern homes can be warm and inviting, while prioritising clean lines and spaciousness. Let’s explore some recent Refresh projects to discover ways to achieve a modern look:

This 1930’s home in Maeroa was transformed with several key modern elements:

  • Interesting lighting: Under-cabinet lighting in the kitchen, LED lights around the bathroom mirror, and lighting features in the shower all play a role in creating a curated ambience in the home.
  • Pattern play: A feature wall in the ensuite bathroom showcases a playful jungle-inspired wallpaper, while the master shower features beautiful geometric tiling work.
  • Space to store: Custom wardrobes with loads of drawers and shelving create storage space. In addition, intuitive kitchen shaker style cabinetry transforms the functionality of the kitchen.

A heritage home in Hamilton East marries the classic villa exterior with fresh, modern interior design.

  • Tidy laundry space: Details like bright white paint, a clever Shaker peg rail, and new appliances make the chore of doing laundry a bit more serene.
  • Natural tiling: Stone floor and shower tiles in the laundry and bathroom bring a clean and natural feel to this home’s interior.

An outdated kitchen and bathroom in this Hamilton home received a major modern glow-up.

  • Clever cabinetry: Clean, white kitchen cabinets with understated hardware complete the look in this new kitchen. Not to mention, these new cabinets add much-needed storage to this smaller kitchen.
  • Splash of colour: A pop of contrasting colour is a signature element in modern design. In this case, bright red splashback tiles make their way across the entire kitchen and even into the bathroom. 

How can interior designers add value to your home renovation?

When you dedicate your time and money to a house renovation, you should get the very most out of your new space. Interior design is your opportunity to turn your house into a home that features your taste and style.

Interior designers are equipped with the knowledge and expertise to create a complementary design flow from room to room. If you’re after a specific style, they can source the right furniture and decor for your space. Learn more about the incredible impact that interior design can have on your house renovation.
