1980s house renovated, The Gap

Brief: open up small rooms to create open plan modern living. Move walls to create larger bedrooms and bathrooms.

Design Features:

  • Wall between the formal living and kitchen family was removed
  • New kitchen was reconfigured to extend into the newly opened spaces creating a huge 3m island bench
  • The flooring was replaced throughout to unify the spaces with a Custom Wood commercial grade wood effect flooring which was soft underfoot with a lifetime guarantee
  • The back wall of the smallest bedroom was pushed out to the eves and became a large master bedroom with modern floor to ceiling windows framing the bed and overlooking the garden and stylish landscaping
  • The toilet room was incorporated into the main bathroom which became a very large master ensuite
  • The largest bedroom had windows on two sides so we moved the walls and made it smaller
  • The original tiny ensuite was made into a large main bathroom by the extra space created by moving the wall
  • The result was an open plan functional home with a large master bedroom and spacious ensuite and two equal sized children’s rooms
  • The whole family area opened out to the landscaped courtyard and entertaining area. A series of closed off dark rooms became a light filled workable space
