Transforming tradition - a stunning renovation reveal!

Initially a maze of small, dark, segregated rooms, the owners of this dated Hillsborough bungalow wanted to breathe new life into their home while retaining its charming character.

With a mandate to modernise and open up, the layout was reconfigured to seamlessly integrate a modern kitchen, scullery, and laundry, alongside four rejuvenated bathrooms. Leck Electrical worked their magic on the lighting design and helped us transform the ambiance of the home. From LED strips to tread lights, and even an integrated  sound system, they’ve created bright, inviting spaces for the homeowners to enjoy.

The new kitchen is all about convenience and style

With a u-shaped bench top providing plenty of workspace, drawers for easy access and elegant brushed gold handles and tapware, the renovated kitchen is a perfect blend of functionality and sophistication. The scullery features beautiful tiles and brushed gold mesh drawer fronts, which are not only supremely stylish, but make excellent vegetable storage.

This spacious home boasts four bathrooms, each with its own unique flair.

Despite their differences, sharing the same style of vanity, tapware, mirror and lighting gives the bathrooms some consistency.

The new laundry is just as stunning as the rest of the home

No need for your laundry to be drab and depressing! This hard-working space has been given a style update by using the same gorgeous tile used in the scullery.

It was important to the homeowners to retain and restore some key heritage features

Every detail, from the custom-made lead lights to the meticulously crafted timberwork, mirrors the home's original period aesthetic. These beautiful doors were made by Next Level Joinery, with GlassArts Designmaking the stunning stained glass. The design was based on original stained glass featured in other parts of the house.
