West Melbourne Home Extensions And Renovations Projects

If your home is starting to look worse for wear or you are running out of space you are probably wondering whether to move to another location or stay and upgrade your home to suit your requirements. Let’s face it, everyone knows how stressful and expensive it can be to uproot your family and move to a new neighbourhood, not to mention the exorbitant costs involved in selling and buying. 

If you are happy living in West Melbourne but your home needs an upgrade, a good option would be to find out how your home can be renovated to fit in with your lifestyle and needs. Renovating your home is an excellent way to build equity by increasing the value of your property. Even the small changes you make will increase the market value of your property and make it more attractive to potential buyers in the future. At Period Extensions & Designs, we can help you achieve this. 

When you partner with us you will have access to more than two decades of expert experience that you can utilise to successfully complete your home extensions or renovation. For example, we can show you how doors can be used effectively to create a good impression, how critical the right lighting is to avoid dark spots or shadows, and how to use paint, trims, and fixtures to create a luxurious impression. 

Why Choose West Melbourne?

With its prime location on the fringe of the city and close to North Melbourne and the waterside Docklands, West Melbourne has a lot to offer people of any age. New apartment complexes have become the norm in this semi-industrial inner-city suburb of Melbourne. Although you can still find a few period homes it is by no means a cosy little residential village but rather a city fringe enclave with railway lines and shipping containers being transported to and from Footscray. The best thing it has going for it is the vibrant city of Melbourne situated literally on its doorstep.

West Melbourne Lifestyle

West Melbourne is ideally suited to people looking for an independent lifestyle that does not include the need for any family-friendly amenities. Although there are some families with children, residents are mostly young singles or married with no children. There is a lot of elbow space in West Melbourne with Flagstaff Gardens providing loads of green lawns and the waterfront at Docklands with its cafes, restaurants, and events just a casual stroll away. 

At Errol Street, you will find a strip of neighbourhood shops, a couple of small supermarkets, and a few cute cafes.  Victoria Market always has fresh produce available and is well-attended by local residents. All amenities are within walking distance although there are buses, trams, and two railway stations for city transport.

Types Of Homes In West Melbourne

A small number of pretty single and double-storey Victorian terraces are still to be found in the cross streets towards North Melbourne and in sections of Victoria Street. However, new modern apartment complexes are more common as well as several snappy city pads created by warehouse conversions.
