Full House Renovation In South Auckland


Address

Our clients at this property in the South Auckland suburb of  Mangere wanted a full house renovation of their rental property to bring it up to the latest healthy homes standards, increase their rental yields and attract better-qualified tenants. The goal was also turning this property into a worry-free investment: minimizing any future maintenance costs and stress from dealing with constant issues. Opening Up Space By cutting back the wall between the kitchen and living room we have created a smooth transition between the kitchen and living area and greatly enhanced the function and layout of this room. The high ceiling, now painted all white, makes the living area look taller and grander. Kitchen Renovation The existing kitchen was very outdated, with cabinets falling apart and was in desperate need of upgrading. We have installed new melamine cabinets with stainless steel handles and an engineered stone benchtop. The main reason we recommend using the engineered stone rather than the laminate is its durability and ease of maintenance. The stone also makes the kitchen look very attractive. Bathroom Remodel By replacing the existing vanity, bath, and mirror with new, modern units and installing large marble-pattern tiles around the bath we have added comfort and beauty to this room. By keeping the colors light and bright we have managed to make the bathroom feel bigger. Rental Property Flooring Recommendations For any areas exposed to water and dampness, we recommend installing vinyl – it's waterproof, durable, and cost-effective. Our client has decided to follow our advice to install the heavy-duty vinyl flooring in the kitchen, dining room, and bathroom. The solution-dyed nylon cut pile carpet was installed in…

Kitchen Renovation

The existing kitchen was very outdated, with cabinets falling apart and was in desperate need of upgrading. We have installed new melamine cabinets with stainless steel handles and an engineered stone benchtop. The main reason we recommend using the engineered stone rather than the laminate is its durability and ease of maintenance. The stone also makes the kitchen look very attractive.

Rental Property Flooring Recommendations

For any areas exposed to water and dampness, we recommend installing vinyl – it’s waterproof, durable, and cost-effective. Our client has decided to follow our advice to install the heavy-duty vinyl flooring in the kitchen, dining room, and bathroom. The solution-dyed nylon cut pile carpet was installed in the lounge and bedrooms. The high-density underlay and 40 ounces carpet thickness makes it feel very luxurious and will last longer than the cheap low-density polyester products.

Renovating an older home without losing its character


Address

We had the opportunity to renovate the full interior of this home. The owners wanted to update their property to meet the new rental requirements and decided to get everything done at once. The idea is that the space would be more comfortable, attractive to tenants, and have low ongoing maintenance needs after. Removing internal walls We could see how a few changes to the internal layout would optimize the space and make the home more comfortable. We were able to open up the living area by taking out two walls, the walls were not load-bearing so we were able to make the choices without applying for consent. Preserving the home's original character We fully removed the wallpaper from the interior of the house and plastered and painted the walls throughout. The house had some lovely character features with the molded coving in the living area and some rounded feature corners. We were able to maintain the character by leaving these in place and working around them. Double glazed windows keep winter outside We removed the flooring throughout the home and supplied new carpets and vinyl. The owners opted to remove the fireplace and replace it with a heat pump. Throughout the home, the glazing was replaced with Aluminum double glazing windows and doors for added insulation and a clean and modern look.   Full bathroom renovation We completely renovated the bathroom installing a new bath with a shower over it with a bath screen and replaced the toilet with a new back-to-wall toilet, we installed a single floor mount vanity and mirror with an extractor fan ducted out through the soffit.

The kitchen suited for family life

We completely replaced the kitchen with standard melamine cabinets, installed with German-made hardware. The kitchen was fitted with soft close hinges and drawers and stainless steel handles. We supplied an engineered stone benchtop and a glass splashback and the overall look is new and fresh and suited to family life for this rental property. We moved the existing hot water cabinet to the outside and installed a gas infinity creating extra kitchen space.

Beach house renovation


Address

Our client has recently acquired a house in a beautiful coastal location and assigned Maintain To Profit South East Auckland with the project of updating the interior of this three-bedroom brick house. The focus of this beach house renovation was creating a modern and easy care space for their family holidays and possibly full-time living once the owners decide to retire and leave the hustle and bustle of the city.   Kitchen renovation Our client has decided to keep the existing kitchen layout. U-shape kitchens offer a lot of workspace and space for cabinetry. The open-plan room allows one arm of the ‘U” to be made into a peninsula that can be accessed from both sides and used as a breakfast bar. It also offers a lot of storage volume, easily accessible from both sides. With high-quality, German-made hardware, quality stone benchtop, and dense MDF cabinets, this timeless kitchen will last well over 15 years.   Accommodating growing family needs As the family grew, it was essential to focus on making the house kid-friendly and easy to clean. The German-made laminate flooring works great for kitchen and living areas. It’s durable, easy to look after, and the underlay is sound absorbent. Commercial grade vinyl was installed in the bathroom and en-suite. A thick carpet with good quality underlay was the perfect choice in all the bedrooms and the corridor. We also installed industrial carpet in the garage as it might be providing additional accommodation options in times of big family gatherings.   With the new kitchen, new flooring, and newly painted walls, the house looks fresh and ready to create many treasured memories.   Beach…
