House Renovation for Increased Value and Comfort

A house renovation known for its stylish and innovative design and high-quality construction can almost always be linked back to Bray Constructions. If you’re looking for the best renovation builder Melbourne has to offer, look no further than Bray Constructions, which has created a strong reputation in the industry. 

The team at Bray Constructions, when working with homeowners and their renovation project, highlight that a house renovation can add increased value and add to the lifestyle benefits for all the occupants. Here are some of the top ways you can increase the value and comfort of your home through renovations.
 
Bathroom Renovation
One of the most significant contributions you can make to your house renovation is the bathroom. In homes with one bathroom, especially those with three or four bedrooms, you can add a bathroom renovation and addition to the top of your list to help make to help make life more comfortable.
 
Of course, space is a significant determining factor in any bathroom renovation or addition. If able, a full bathroom is ideal, but if space is limited, you can also consider a three-quarter or even smaller bathroom.
 
When it comes to a bathroom renovation specifically, rather than an addition, there are certain areas you should focus your attention on, including:
• Fixtures
• Toilets
• Sinks
• Tile
• Lighting

Kitchen Renovation

Even more significant than a bathroom renovation is a kitchen renovation. After all, the kitchen is the heart of a home.  For all the hours spent preparing meals and entertaining, a reasonable amount of time is focused on your kitchen. 

When considering a kitchen renovation, some of the critical aspects you should focus on include:
• Updating flooring
• Repainting
• Installing a new sink and faucet
• Updating hardware
• Installing new benchtops
• Replacing cabinets
• Adding more energy-efficient appliances
 
Energy-Efficient Upgrades

Speaking of replacing older appliances with new energy-efficient ones in your kitchen renovation, swapping out for these types of upgrades throughout your home can instantly help to enhance your living experience while dramatically decreasing your utility bills. 

Climate control is becoming front of mind these days, which means as homeowners, it is our responsibility to do our part to make our homes as environmentally friendly as we can, within limitations, of course.
 
The good news is that often making these energy-efficient upgrades during your home renovation can actually save you money in the long run, as you can save on energy, gas, and water bills.
 
Options like insulation, double-glazed windows, etc., are all different ways you can look to swap out for more environmentally friendly options as you work through your home renovation.
 
Room Repurposing
You can look to repurpose or “re-invent” an existing space in your home as another valuable house renovation idea. For larger families, you may consider repurposing an unused attic space into a bedroom or adding a small apartment in or over your garage space. 
 
Deck Addition
Deck additions are another great way to extend the home and create further entertaining space; all while providing a new level of enjoyment to your home. 
 
Window and Siding Replacement
First impressions are essential, and that’s no different when it comes to homes. The first impression of your home for neighbours and visitors comes from its curb appeal.

Bray Constructions Latest Home Renovation

Bray Constructions Latest Home Renovation

Creator and master builder of stylish and innovative design and high-quality construction, Bray Constructions has cemented a strong reputation in the home renovation industry.

But don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at some of our latest home renovation projects in the area to see what we’ve been up to.

Our Latest Home Renovation Projects

Since its origins in 1994, Bray Constructions has carried out renovation projects, equating to a wealth of experience in the field. High-quality workmanship is showcased within the latest projects listed below, or you can also view our Bayside renovation projects in the Bray Constructions gallery.

 Kirk Residence Home Extension

Kirk Residence

Aside from the original structure of the Kirk Residence, this home renovation left the finished product nearly unrecognisable. Transforming this home from dated to a prime example of luxurious, modern family living was a matter of some extension work and a thorough renovation of the existing building.

For this project, windows and wall cladding commonly designed for commercial fit-outs were used.

Hockley Residence

The Hockley Residence is an excellent example of how a home owner, an architect, and a builder can work closely and successfully. Achieving a fantastic result, this team worked seamlessly throughout this home renovation's design, detailing, and construction processes.

Notable features in the Hockley Residence include Grey Ironbark timber floors, a gourmet kitchen including servery to the entertaining outside area, a 20,000L underground water storage tank, and a fabulous in-ground swimming pool.

Other features include hydronic heating and ducted cooling throughout, a laundry chute, timber veneer, 2-pack painted cabinetry with granite stone bench tops, floor to ceiling tiles in each wet area, and a breathtaking stairwell utilising a combination of natural light and elegant pendant lighting.

Hockley Residence Home Renovation

Russell Residence

Existing features in the home, including the mezzanine floor and large void areas were what drew the Russell’s to the residence. However, the home needed an additional bedroom as well as more modern touches on décor.

With the help of the client and designer, this home transformation was thorough. Every room in the Russell Residence received some type of remodel, paint and floor coverings at the very least.

The significant aspects of the Russell Residence remodel include landscaping and outdoor entertaining area, including a brand new pool. For the interior of the home, a large and inviting entrance flooded with natural light from highlight windows above was created. The sitting room received a renewal with a new fireplace and built-in joinery, the home received new windows and glass doors to the main living area, refurbished bathrooms and ensuite, new robes and of course the Matrix clad bedroom extension on the first floor.

Dixon Residence

The Dixon Residence was already a substantial family home, but the addition of a new front fence with electronic gates, loop entrance with double carport and full landscaping has created an entirely fresh face to what once was a tired period home.

Aside from the façade, the Dixon Residence received an entire remodel at the back of the home. Here, an extension of the family room took place as well as the addition of a new double garage with studio, overlooking the beautiful new pool and outdoor entertaining area. 

The fully tiled pool, frameless glass pool safety fence, Victorian ash lining board ceiling in the double carport, terracotta roofing and wood-burning fireplace with wood box and adjacent barbecue, are among the features of this standout outdoor project.

Millar Residence

The Millar Residence is a beautiful new family home on a narrow site. This is a smart, practical, and well-resolved home that proved to be located on a challenging site.

The home has 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms with 3 distinct internal living areas and 3 external areas. The house is of contemporary design, has a striking street presence, flows beautifully from inside to out, is spacious and filled with natural light. Located in the centre of Brighton, this is a home that ticks all the boxes.
