Brisbane’s Home Renovation Trends for 2018
February 22, 2018 admin

Are you a Brisbane homeowner, looking to step foot on the renovation ladder this year? Maybe you’ve been considering a kitchen revamp for a while, but need a bit of inspiration on which colour scheme to choose? Or perhaps you’re a growing family in need of more room to move?

Whatever the case may be, we’re here to help. Having been building and renovating homes in Brisbane for years now, you could say that we’re pretty up to date with the latest trends. Of course, we have to be! The following are three of the most popular styles of renovation Brissy homeowners are opting for this year.

1. Turning Queenslanders into Hamptons style homes.

It might sound a little cliche, but trust us, this style of home reno is something a lot of people are opting for. And we can certainly understand why! Think immaculate timber detailing, light textures matched with opportunities for natural lighting, and light pastels tones. If you’re going to give your old Queenslander home a revamp, why not go all out and make it as modern as you can?

At Eco Building Services, we’re particularly passionate about bringing the beauty back into old Queenslanders. You can read more about that here.

2. Lifting up and building underneath your home.

Need more space but don’t want to leave your lovely neighbourhood or family home behind? No need! Plenty of homes can be lifted up and built underneath of, meaning you’ll have an entire extra level of rooms to have fun designing. Be warned though, this type of build requires a certain level of skill, so you should always make sure your builders are fully accredited and experienced.

3. Using beautiful recycled timber to create one-of-a-kind features.

As more people start to learn about the wasteful nature of our western society, we are seeing an increase in homeowners opting for sustainable renovation techniques. Which is very exciting for us eco-savvy folk! We know that beautiful hardwood timber doesn’t have to come straight from the forest grounds to be in good enough knick for your home; the stuff lasts a lifetime!

Check out one of our pride and joy building projects below; a feature wall made entirely from recycled timber.
