Apartment Renovation by the River

February 5, 2020

We offer a full apartment renovation service, we take care of everything.

We were approached by Anju Designs to renovate an 80’s apartment by the river. We transformed this four bedroom, three bathroom apartment into a fresh new look and feel, that the owners are very happy with.

The kitchen had a large pole on the edge that needed to be integrated into the open living space and we came up with a reshaping solution using timber pieces, that creates a lovely transition into the kitchen from the living.

We completely renovated all the bathrooms, bedrooms, including joinery, tiling, painting, lighting plan and installation to create the look of a new apartment.

The owners were very impressed with our work and the final result.

Anju Designs were great to work with and we often collaborate with designers and between us we find good design solutions for many of the problems that often arise with renovation.

Complete New Farm Apartment Renovation

October 17, 2019

Anju Designs contacted Finer Living to carry out a full transformation of a very tired looking 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom Apartment in Arthur Street New Farm.

Penny (Manger Director) From Anju Designs arranged a meeting with the owners and myself (Matthew Hunsche) to discuss  how we could open up the space and create a very modern but timeless feel.

Anju Designers and Finer Living worked very closely together throughout this project, every detail was taken into consideration, from lighting, to extra storage under the bed to even considering the water filter. Every room had to fit into the brief from the owners, from Sarah’s bathroom to Craig’s office.

Since there is no room for a dining room table, Anju Designers took the risky move of making the stone island bench larger and longer, which fitted into the space beautifully. The kitchen design with builtin LED lighting, works wonderfully with the stone material.

We also created a new feel in the bedroom by way of new joinery furniture, with LED lighting and more storage space in the upper cupboards.

New BBQ Area , with a pop up Tv  makes the courtyard a really relaxed atmosphere to sit and unwind.

Everyone is overjoyed with the success of the project and the apartment now looks like new, breathing a fresh life into the space and creating a living environment that works perfectly and compliments the lifestyles of the owners.

Library, Fireplace and Built-Ins in French Walnut

June 25, 2019

We were contacted by Turul Building to design and build an old fashioned Library and Mantel Piece and make storage with built-in cupboards, all to bring character and a sense of warmth into the home.

We decided on hand made mouldings and fluting, and to work with French Walnut with use a 20% Finish, and brass shelf supports were also included.

We designed the Mantel Piece to compliment the character of design, and to add to the feel of the room.

The client is very happy with the final result and now has a beautiful relaxing sanctuary to read, relax and entertain, all in front of a warming fire.
