Different types of home renovations


Home exterior renovations

The facade of your property is a very important aspect of the exterior design. Home facade renovations are a popular choice because it sets the style for the rest of the property and increases its street appeal from an onlooker’s view. Just like home renovations, house facade renovations are carried out for many reasons:

  • To improve energy efficiency.
  • To increase the value of your property.
  • To decrease the costs of maintenance.
  • to enhance the outside beauty of your home.

Bathroom renovation & remodeling

Your bathroom should be your retreat when the day gets too much – a haven where you can relax and unwind. That’s why bathroom renovations are carried out to give the space a more lavish appeal. By adding a new vanity cabinet, a modern mirror or contemporary shelving – just the smallest of upgrades like these can breathe new life into your bathroom. But if you want to make your downtime even more indulgent, then bathroom remodeling is essential to creating your dream space. The requisite of plumbing work is fundamental to a successful bathroom remodeling project, which is why we ensure that every step of the process is transparently explained to you.

Here are a few advantages to bathroom remodeling:

  • It improves home value.
  • It adds more space just by changing the arrangement of new fixtures (for example, where your vanity goes and where your shower screen is).
  • It gives the space a more luxurious and modern feel.
  • It improves or adds to the overall energy efficiency in your bathroom.
  • It enhances its appeal to homebuyers.
  • It improves or corrects faulty features with plumbing and drainage.

Kitchen renovation & remodeling

Have you always imagined having the perfect family kitchen? With an island bench for the kids to sit around and a butlers pantry to bake together without making a big mess?

Perhaps you’ve dreamt about having two ovens, or a clear splashback so you can watch your kids play in the backyard whilst you cook?

The kitchen is a dynamic space where family can gather over a cooked meal and talk about their day. That’s why it’s essential to have the perfect kitchen that the whole family loves. The main benefit of a kitchen renovation is to add value to your home by incorporating new fixtures and accessories. The simplest of upgrades such as new cupboard doors or a modern island bench can make all the difference to the appearance of your kitchen. But if your lifestyle involves many dinner parties and entertaining guests, then a kitchen remodeling project is in order to create your dream space. We understand that a kitchen remodel is a big deal, which is why we’ll go through the process with you step-by-step to help ease the pressure.


Outdoor deck renovations

Spending time outdoors in your backyard with your friends and family is much more enjoyable when you have a beautiful and welcoming deck. From weekend barbecues to gazing under the stars, your backyard deck is an outdoor getaway for all things relaxing and fun. Over time, you may start to realise that your current deck design just doesn’t fit your needs anymore. If you’ve been thinking about ways to enhance your outside deck, then a complete deck build or deck refurbishment is in order. Professionally constructed classic wood decks can add value to your property and potentially last for up to 15 to 20 years with the right maintenance and care.


Terrace renovations

Sydney terrace house renovations can be challenging to work on as they’re often regulated by heritage overlays. They are typically built from boundary to boundary, so their long narrow form can limit the amount of daylight that enters in. The finest terrace renovations require smart design combined with a skilled team, which is why we’re experts in this field. The most common concern with properties of this era is that they are structurally unsound and can have issues like rising damp. This leaves the properties feeling dark and cold on the inside. Their traditional design often only leaves you with one bathroom and the living areas at the front. By carving out a large opening into the front room, you can enlarge the sense of space and reverse all of the issues above.

The most common reasons why terrace home renovations are needed is to:

  • Reconfigure the floor plan to maximise room space.
  • Increase the storage area.
  • Bring in more natural light.
  • Move the living areas to the rear.
  • Add another bathroom.
  • Renovate the kitchen and bathroom.
  • Alter the rear of the property to create an open plan layout (which easily leads out to your backyard).

Budget

Sticking to a budget is always a challenge, so creating a budget for a renovation project you've never done before is an even bigger one. There are always remnants of horror stories going around about escalating costs and budget blow-outs. Luckily, you don’t need to worry about that when you partner with SGM. That’s because we will work with you and your architect to come up with the most cost-effective solution for your project.

Once we settle on your budget, we’ll work closely with our trade contacts to find materials and finishes that are within your budget (without compromising on their high-end quality). An example from one of our previous projects is a duplex we renovated in South Cronulla. The client had a limited budget but they wanted timber post finishes that were out of their price range. Instead, we selected timber looking aluminum posts that mimicked their appearance but costed much less.

The most important part is to ensure that your architect designs and delivers a plan that stays within the constraints of your budget. Then, we can work together on the rest to ensure we stay within it.When it comes to home renovation and home remodelling costs, building a practicable budget requires plenty of research and a plan. The build costs will depend on things like:

The material you want to use.

Fixtures and fittings.

The size and complexity of the job.

The condition of the home (existing plumbing problems, etc.)
