HOUSES BOUGHT & SOLD ⇔ RESTUMPED ⇔ RELOCATED ⇔ RAISED ⇔ RENOVATED
Renovating a colonial-style home in Australia, requires respect for the historical and architectural characteristics of the home while also incorporating modern elements for comfort and functionality.
1. Research and Planning:
We take time to understand the architectural features and design elements that are characteristic of colonial-style homes to gain insights into the original design and construction of your particular colonial home.
2. Maintain Historical Integrity:
We preserve and restore original features whenever possible. Elements such as timber flooring, decorative fretwork, verandas, and gabled roofs are often hallmarks of colonial-style homes. We strive to maintain the original charm while addressing any necessary repairs or updates.
3. Modernising Infrastructure:
While preserving the historical façade and features, there is also consideration in modernising the infrastructure.
4. Kitchen and Bathrooms:
Kitchens and bathrooms are areas where modern conveniences are often desired. We blend modern fixtures and appliances with design elements that complement the colonial style.
5. Verandas and Outdoor Spaces:
Verandas are a distinctive feature of colonial homes particularly in Queensland. We can enhance and expand these outdoor spaces to create comfortable areas for relaxation and entertainment.
Timber flooring is a common feature in colonial homes. We can restore or replicate original timber flooring where possible.
We can incorporate lighting fixtures that blend the old and the new.
8. Local Regulations:
Be aware of any local heritage and preservation regulations that might affect your renovation plans. Some renovations on heritage-listed homes might require approval from heritage authorities.
Remember that every colonial home is unique, so we tailor your renovation plans to the specific characteristics of your property.
