Project: Ensuite addition, bedroom renovation and landscaping
Duration: 15 weeks
Renovation specialist: Mark Morrison
A poorly built bedroom and the need for an additional bathroom led these Wellington homeowners to Refresh Renovations. Local renovation specialist Mark Morrison met with the family to discuss their ideas and provide a bespoke design and build solution. In their meeting, Mark’s clients discussed their wishlist - deciding on an ensuite addition, replacing the existing badly built bedroom with a new one and improving the rear of their property through hardscaping and landscaping work.
“Our goals were to add an additional bathroom onto the existing house”, tells homeowner Nick. “We soon realised, when talking with Mark, that demolishing and redoing the end bedroom was the best idea.”
An experienced project manager and design engineer, Mark worked closely with the family to create a design that could be produced with their ideas and budget in mind. He also guided them through the feasibility of their project, and provided them with practical and aesthetic suggestions along the way. With an approved design in place, the demolition, rebuild and extension work began.
The bedroom was built to flow on from the home’s hallway and out to a concrete patio through aluminium glass doors. Large windows were installed, bringing in plenty of natural light, while neutral coloured carpeting and wall paint creates a calm atmosphere.
Leading through from the renovated bedroom, the deep blue walls of the ensuite bathroom instantly draw you in. The chic contrast between the vanity and basin - a standout feature - add a modern and earthy feel to the space. Underneath the vanity, a cabinet provides plenty of storage space. A roomy shower with built-in shelving allows for functionality and ease-of-access.
Outside, a lovely patio, made of concrete specially selected by Mark’s clients, creates the perfect summer social zone. Enveloping the hardscaped area is a newly built retaining wall with a planting plan which enhances the outdoor space.The work was expertly done”, notes Nick.
Overall, it’s an update that Nick and his family will be able to enjoy for years to come:
“We like our new addition and can’t understand why we didn’t do it earlier!”
