Collingwood Home Renovations And Extensions Projects

If you already live in Collingwood but have outgrown either the space or style of your home, renovating or extending offers you the opportunity to design the type of home you have always wanted without the stress and aggravation of moving to a new house or suburb.

Furthermore, it allows you to increase the value of your property, achieve a sense of accomplishment, as well as take advantage of energy-saving options. You may have to live on a construction site for a while but if you choose to renovate one room at a time you can save yourself the costs of moving out while the work is being done. This where Period Extensions & Designs come into the picture.

At Period Extensions & Designs, we have been helping homeowners in Collingwood to breathe fresh air into their old home for more than 20 years with creative and innovative renovation and extension concepts. We have been able to help our clients create a valuable investment with plenty of character that reflects their particular lifestyle.

Why Choose Collingwood?

This inner-city suburb of Melbourne has undergone a high-speed makeover that transformed it from a sketchy grunge location into a stylish, artsy neighbourhood with fine dining and a thriving bar scene going for it. There are still some signs of grunge around but Collingwood is now more known as a gentrified enclave of sophisticated bars, award-winning restaurants, mid-century furniture stores, and art galleries.

Side streets hide pop-ups like The Peoples Market and little parks while in Wellington Street you can still find the iconic Tote Hotel. Transport consists of buses and trams and the Collingwood train station near Abbotsford. There are a couple of government schools as well as the NMIT campus.
