Prahran Home Renovation And Extensions Projects

If you live in Prahran, are you thinking about renovating your home or adding an extension to improve your lifestyle? With the costs involved to move at premium prices, more and more homeowners now choose to add more space to their homes rather than moving or selling. One of the biggest benefits of adding an extension or renovating is the opportunity to stay in a neighbourhood you call home. That is where Period Extensions & Designs come into the picture. 

Period Extensions & Designs specialise in innovative renovations and extensions in the Prahran area which means you don’t need to sell up if your house no longer meets your lifestyle needs. With an extension, you get to choose the design so that it matches your needs and lifestyle, and you can add specific fittings and features that you have always wanted but never thought you could have.  


Why Choose Prahran?

Anchored on the iconic Chapel Street, between hipster Windsor and glamorous South Yarra, Prahran includes an easy-going vibe with an unforgettable experience all on its own. Life in Prahran is fun, which is the main reason why many independent young individuals settle here. Mature singles enjoy the lavish gourmet lifestyle on offer and live happily alongside the lifelong, older residents. 

Prahran is an L-shaped, lively neighbourhood that borders Chapel Street and the boulevard of Dandenong Road. Commercial Road is home to gourmet Prahran Market, glossy restaurants, and mega nightclubs, while Greville Street has a more villagey feel with boutique stores and cafes galore.
