Refresh’s past open-plan conversions have fallen within a price range of $150,000 - $180,000*. However, your project may cost more or less depending on your specifications and the condition of your home. Your Renovation Consultant will provide you with a fixed quote before any building work commences. If you have a set budget in mind, your consultant will work with you to make any necessary design changes so that your project suits your budget and lifestyle requirements.
Depending on your project specifications, development consent and/or building approval might be required. Your Renovation Consultant will advise you if this is the case and will take care of the application process for you. They will ensure your project is carried out in accordance with all local regulations.
In terms of layout, open plan designs combine the kitchen, living area and outdoors all within one space - although specific features allow for each space to feel like it’s within its own section. Kitchen island’s, dining tables and double glazed sliding or French doors help to create individual zones within open-plan layouts. In any modern design, the kitchen and living area will usually lead out onto a deck, patio or terrace. This creates more space for social gatherings and also allows for plenty of fresh air to enter the home’s main living areas. In terms of colour, light colours are the norm as they make spaces feel fresh and open. Typically, this will include white walls and ceilings in contrast with hardwood or concrete flooring.
