The Mount Lawley Three-Story Remodel
Steve and Andy found us online. The job was based in Mount Lawley, and they wanted someone local with great reviews.
Since we’re based all over Perth and have an excellent reputation both online and off, it was a perfect fit.
We met several times for a month or so to iron out the planning details and make sure we were all on the same page as to the budget and the end result.
Why Steve and Andy Chose Perth Renovations Co
- Our reviews and reputation were the primary reasons for choosing us for their renovation project.
- Once we met in person, however, they felt even more confident in our ability to manage the job.
- As always, we were sincere and transparent about what we were going to do and how we were going to do it.
They appreciated this, and ultimately, what earned us the job.
Why They Needed to Renovate
Steve and Andy had been living in another home for over ten years. They had just bought this property, which was old, outdated, and needed the Perth Renovations Co touch to bring it into the 21st century.
However, beyond new flooring, kitchens, and baths, they wanted to change all three stories of the interior.
The Project Timeline
For Steve and Andy’s renovation, we developed a detailed 10-week project schedule.
While we did go over schedule by a week, this was due to material and design changes, which we were more than happy to accommodate.
While we strive to create and stick to precise timelines for our clients’ convenience and better project organization, mid-project changes are often made for a variety of reasons.
We understand the importance of fluidity and being able to make changes in design and materials throughout every project. This achieves the best possible outcome for our clients.
As with most projects, we first disconnected the services, which allowed the demolition team to come in and strip everything from top to bottom.
The Products We Used
We used locally made tile by a company called Trend Ceramics in Osborne Park. We ended up going with a 450 x 900 mm matte grey tile to open the space.
The tile was complemented with Magellan Gray grout, which we used for both bathrooms from floor to ceiling all in one colour.
We used Race Plumbing for all of our installations, and we used Roca Meridian toilets for both bathrooms.
Upstairs, we installed:
- A Roca-inspired soft vessel basin
- Mizu Drift pop up waste
- Mizu Drift extended basin mixer
- Grohe Essential toilet roll holders
- Grohe EuroSmart shower mixers
- Grohe Tempesta Cosmo Twin Shower for the main upstairs bath
- Mizu Drift heated towel rail
Downstairs, we installed:
- Grohe EuroSmart mixer with the Tempesta Cosmo rail shower
- Grohe Essential robe hooks
- A white ceramic Prisma trough basin to give the feel of a bathroom and the functionality of a laundry trough since it was a bathroom/laundry combo.
- We also installed a Mizu Drift Gooseneck Sink Mixer for the downstairs laundry and a Mizu Drift Gooseneck with a pull-out for the kitchen. For the kitchen, we also added an Abey Lucia sink.
For the kitchen, we installed all top-of-the-line Winning appliances:
- A zip filtered water tap
- Siemens gas cooktop
- Matching Siemens oven, Miele range hood, and a Miele semi-integrated dishwasher.
- Downstairs, we did a washer/dryer combo by Bosch.
Benchtops and Drawers
For the kitchen cabinets, we used Polytech laminate in a classic white matte finish.
We matched this with Polytech ravine natural oak for the overheads to create a sleek and stylish two-tone look.
Underneath the overheads, we installed strip lighting to add a little mood lighting or for extra light at night.
For the kitchen benchtops, we used Eternal stone for both benchtops and Eternal Statuario Silestone for the splashback.
For the upstairs on-suite, we used Polytech Ravine Drifted Oak for the cabinetry and White Storm by Silestone for the benchtops.
By using this combination of materials throughout the home’s kitchen and baths, we were able to create a cohesive, contemporary feel right in line with the wants and needs of modern buyers.
In addition to redoing the kitchen and baths, we put hardwood timber flooring throughout the second story and from the entrance all the way up the staircase into the kitchen and dining room.
We might be a little biased, but the floors came out fantastic and transformed the space.
We also added a full reverse-cycle air conditioning system with smart Bluetooth technology and added new ducting throughout all three floors to keep the entire home cool come December.
It’s pretty neat. You can be driving home from work and turn your air on from your phone with the press of a button.
The End Result
There are a lot of moving parts to any renovation project, but everything went pretty much according to plan and turned out great.
We changed a lot on the go in terms of cabinetry, finishes, and the like, but they were pleased with the decisions we made and the finished outcome.
As we do with all clients, we put their needs first and did whatever was best suited for them.
In the end, we blew their expectations out of the water and gained a very happy and loyal customer. It was a win-win.
