Why choose Refresh Renovations?

A house extension is one of the largest home renovation projects you can undertake, involving multiple tradespeople – builders, electricians, decorators, and roofers. Refresh Renovations will carefully manage your project from ideation to execution and ensure that all work is completed to the highest quality standards.
Your successful renovation journey begins with an initial consultation with your local Canberra Renovation Consultant. They’ll discuss your ideas and tailor these to suit your budget and property type. Concept drawings will show how your finished house extension will look, and you’ll be able to review and make changes to these before any work begins. You’ll also receive a detailed breakdown of how much your extension will cost.
Refresh Renovations are here to change how the world renovates, and our approach has been proven to save time and money. Your Renovation Consultant will negotiate prices with their trusted network of contractors and suppliers, and carefully schedule when different trades are required on site. This process underpins your project being completed on time and within the agreed budget.
You can track the progress of your renovation using the Refresh online portal, and your Renovation Consultant will be available to answer any queries. They’ll manage everything from start to finish, enabling you to carry on with normal life while your extension is being built.

What house extension ideas are popular in Canberra?

Whether you’re looking to add a single-storey or second-storey extension, there are plenty of exciting options to choose from. Here are some of the most popular house extension ideas in Canberra.
Glass kitchen extensions have become increasingly popular and are a lovely way to create an easy flow between indoor and outdoor living, particularly if you consider a covered deck as well. Extending your kitchen to create a larger kitchen/dining area is a great idea for those who like to entertain family and friends, and enhances good conversation and socialising while food is being prepared.
Next to Darwin, Canberra has the youngest median age of all capital cities in Australia (35.4 years) which may help to explain why playrooms and home offices are also popular choices for single-storey extensions. Playrooms can be readily converted into a rumpus room for teens in later years. And, even the most compact of home offices makes it easier to work without distractions and switch off at the end of the day.
Creating an en suite is a popular option for those who opt for a second-storey extension. The extra comfort and convenience can also make your property more attractive to potential buyers in the future. An additional bedroom is also a practical and popular choice
Whatever you have in mind, your local Canberra Renovation Consultant will provide all the advice and support you need to start bringing your house extension idea to life.
