Before & After - Melbourne home renovation (Kew)


Some clever modern design elements plus a fresh and light colour scheme helped transform this tired Kew home into a modern family haven. Here’s how: 

The client’s requirements
The client wanted a full home renovation, requesting their Melbourne home be renovated both inside and outside for a modern makeover, but also to create a more open feel and look and reduce clutter.

All the elements of the kitchen were outdated from the painted wood cabinetry to laminate benchtop and tiled splashback. The kitchen space was however large in size and included plenty of benchspace and overhead cabinetry – two elements the client wished to retain in the new kitchen design.

The existing bathroom required a full renovation, with plans to create a more open retreat-like space. The home’s facade was in need of a fresh coat of paint and an updated look too.

The end result of this Melbourne home renovation equalled a modern flowing home with a bright and modern-look kitchen as its centrepiece. See More Inner Metro Renovation Case Studies
The off-white colour scheme created a fresh and light appearance throughout the whole house, complemented by laminated  floorboards.

At the heart of the home renovation project is the new kitchen - transformed into a visually stunning space where storage is at a premium. Classic off-white tones in cabinetry, benchtop and splashback create clean lines and open up the space visually. Neutral-coloured gloss stone benchtops and a matching glass splashback, with the addition of stainless-steel European appliances including an integrated underbench oven, add to the modern look. 

The bathroom became a restful and retreat-like space using natural stone tiles from floor to ceiling, plus a free-standing bath and a frameless shower screen.

The facade was repainted and customised to include colours that better suited the client’s tastes, creating a stylish and modern entrance that reflected the new modern living spaces inside.
