We offer a unique service

We have just completed another Apartment Renovation on a 10 year old apartment in New Farm.

We worked alongside Anju Designs and the owners to renovate the kitchen, laundry, staircase and front entrance.

The brief was to “turn this apartment into a modern Home, within a tight budget”

We replaced the kitchen cupboard doors and the island bench, repainted the whole apartment. Stripped back, stained and repolished the staircase in a black finish and added a glass hand rail. Replaced the front door with a solid Oak door and custom built handles, to match the staircase and compliment the entrance.

The owners are really happy with their new look home, all completed within budget.

Apartment Renovation by the River

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.

Our Clients Testimonal:

We were first introduced to Matthew by our designer Penny from Anju Designs, as we wanted to do a complete renovation on our apartment in Kangaroo Point.

We selected Matthew to do the work as his quote was acceptable compared to others, but he was able to do the complete renovation from demolition right through to the finished product, including all joinery. This proved to be the best solution for us.

We have been totally happy with Matthew and his team throughout the whole process, and the quality of the workmanship is second to none.

Thank you Matthew and your team for making our project go so well and we are absolutely delighted with our finished apartment. We highly recommend Matthew and Finer Living.

We were asked to create a unique kitchen with a big WoW factor for this historic homestead.

This kitchen is stunning with Stone benchtops  and wall backings from Granite, along with a soft moulded edge detail that works well with the fluting on the cabinets. The doors are layer moulded, made in three sections.

The timber in the display cabinets is French Walnut, with soft interior lighting installed.

Window bench seat near the wine chiller creates a space to relax and chat while the flavours are simmering.

After many consultations with our client, considering all the needs of the family we built this bespoke kitchen and the client is very happy with the final result.

There are before shots included here also, so you can see the transformation.

Our client is overjoyed with the end result of the restoration and reupholstering of their French style carved chairs.
We had to fully remove the old white coating and then re-gold them by hand with gold rub. They were finished in a clear coating.

Restoring and polishing brings new life to well loved furniture

Our client wanted their well loved furniture restored to bring new life into their living rooms. We carefully rechromed, repolished, reparied and age-painted and varnished to remove the wear and tear and revive and refresh creating a fresh feel in the apartment.

On one piece the procedure was very time consuming due to the very flat and full grain finish.

Our team also aged the Lounge chairs and coffee table, in a blue/white wash finish.

Our team of French Polishers did an exceptional job and the client is very happy with the final results.
