St. Kilda Home Renovations And Extensions Projects

If you feel like your home is bursting at the seams, it’s only natural to think about moving to a bigger place. This often happens when people start a family, and one child turns into three or four. However, if you live in St. Kilda, it’s a tough decision to leave one of the most popular and diverse suburbs in Melbourne in search of a more spacious home.

Or, you might also live in an older home that only has one full bathroom and you have grown tired of the bickering that comes along with trying to share this space. Regardless of the reasons as to why you need more space, a professional extension or home renovation can mean that you won’t have to sell up and move anytime soon. 

Period Extensions & Designs are able to provide the solution that you are looking for. We have more than 20 years of experience when it comes to innovative and cleverly designed extensions and renovations which means you can stay right where you are.

Why Choose St. Kilda?
