Home Extensions And Renovations In Port Melbourne

Most homeowners consider moving to a new home when their existing space becomes too small or their home has become old and outdated. Extending or renovating has become extremely popular in Australia over the past few years as an alternative to uprooting the whole family and moving to a new location. If you are currently living in a great location with easy transport, close to schools and all facilities, friendly people and you can see yourself living there for at least the next 5 – 10 years, renovating or extending may be a good option to for you to consider.

Are you looking for some remodelling ideas that will bring your older Port Melbourne home to bring it straight into the 21st century? Some of the most amazing remodelling ideas out there can help make your home more energy-efficient and comfortable. In the kitchen for example innovative designs with cabinet doors that fold away instead of opening up will not only save space but are safer because you remove the risk of bumping your head. 

Storage drawers allow you to see what you need immediately without rummaging through stacks of appliances at the bottom of a cupboard. Raised counter tops avoid backache and floors with a spring in them can help avoid hip and knee strain if you spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Ergonomic kitchen remodelling allows you to move freely between prep stations while preparing meals. Eco-friendly kitchens are designed for sustainability reasons as much as aesthetic reasons. If space is a problem, why not think about going up with a double-storey extension instead of sideways? Period Extensions & Designs can help you create a plan so you can make the most of where you now live.
