RENOVATION IDEAS

It’s always a great idea to collect a scrapbook

It’s always a great idea to collect a scrapbook of designs you like to share with your designer and builder before you undertake any home renovation. Here we’ve compiled a great selection of inspirational ideas and images to get you started.

A home renovation could be exactly what your family needs to ensure your house can meet your needs both now and into the future. Whether it’s a single-room renovation – such as a kitchen, bathroom or bedroom – or a more major renovation, addition or extension, when you work with the experts you’re guaranteed to love the result.
Many homeowners find it much easier, and ultimately more cost-effective, to work with a full-service building company who can oversee and co-ordinate the full range of design and building work required. Nouvelle offers this peace of mind to all customers.

Outdoor areas can become entertaining havens with clever design and a well-considered layout. In this example below a fairly small courtyard appears much larger than reality with the design of separate zones to segregate one area from another. Wide-placed stepping stones, filled in between with small pebbles, visually expand the impression of space while the seating area is surrounded by lush greenery and topped with a pergola to make it usable in all seasons.

Indoor/outdoor living has never been easier and, if this is your goal for your home renovation, here’s a great way to achieve the look. In the example above (right) careful choice of flooring cleverly merges the inside floor with the deck and blurs the boundary between inside and out. The doors open up completely allowing for easy flow of traffic as well as expanding the available space when entertaining on a grand scale.

This open-plan living space incorporates a living room, dining room and kitchen as well as access to the alfresco entertaining space. When planning this home renovation, the owners were keen to reduce visible boundaries yet keep a clear definition between each of the rooms. This was achieved by the use of floor-to-ceiling open screens in natural timber to match the style of the home as well as reflect the natural tones from outside.
