Melbourne Amazing Period Home Extension
This amazing period home extension left the owners beaming with pride. Our renovation builder Melbourne prepared his team for a total makeover that involved adding a new laundry, a bathroom, a living area and an upstairs loft. Also included was a massive kitchen that can only be described as the ultimate entertainer’s delight.
But, let’s start with the stunning awesome bay window that extends out into the garden. Built-in classic style, it features expansive windows that flood the room with natural light and offer a stunning view. Inside the nook, the owner has placed cosy couches and plush cushions, creating a dreamy relaxing reading nook.
As entertainers, the kitchen had to provide space, convenience and also look ultra-stylish. A central island with a glossy white top and in-built basin is perfect for eating, chatting, and perhaps some last-minute work. It also offers hidden storage in the form of cabinets. Light abounds with large windows behind the sink and hanging pendants that infuse the room with charm and radiance after dark. Strategically placed amid the flat-panelled white cabinets are state-of-the-art shiny chrome appliances including a double-door fridge with an ice maker and water dispenser.
The bathroom renovation is simple and elegant with white as the chosen colour for freshness. A large shower is accessed via a frameless glass door and the wooden vanity adds a unique finish.
Climb the stairs and you will find the perfect hideaway loft for a young couple. Home renovations Melbourne has transformed this previously unused area into a large, spacious, flexible room with an open-plan design. Being in the roof, the sloping ceiling adds a striking modern dimension. The space can hold a bed, occasional chairs and a dresser. If the family prefers, the loft can be turned into a work office or a trendy games area for the kids.
Earthy-toned wooden floorboards create a cohesive look throughout the home and are enhanced by strategically placed rugs. Adding a warm and nostalgic ambiance, is a free-standing cast iron stove where the enchanting glow of live flames can be seen through the glass. The cooktop is perfect for a whistling kettle to announce that tea is ready.
The laundry takes care of day-to-day functions, providing a convenient space that allows the washing machine and dryer to be out of sight, but easily accessible.
Working with, and enhancing, the existing style and architecture of this period home, the renovators were able to preserve its charm and appeal and create an exceptional living space for the homeowners.
