Originally built in the 80’s, this humble Perth home featured (if you can call it that) a façade of dated and uninspiring brickwork. The interior similarly suffered from a disjointed floor plan and boring beige tiles throughout. And then there was the kitchen – don’t even get me started on the woeful state of the kitchen! (I think the before photos speak for themselves).
The brief for Amerex was one of total transformation; the homeowners wanted to completely expand and revamp the space, while adding more natural light to the key living areas.
The result? A spacious family home complete with functional open-plan living and stylishly modern finishes – one that’s up for a HIA award (impressive!).
To accommodate the larger living area and provide a space for the stunning new kitchen (seriously, what a transformation!) and dining areas, an extensive structural extension had to be added.
“We also added an entertainer’s alfresco, complete with a wood fireplace – this way the home now had a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor areas, and the owners could easily transition from indoor to outdoor entertaining,” says Suzanne Burke, GM of Amerex.
A complete reroof and external render of the entire property helped bring the home into the 21st century.
“The render was a no-brainer. We also added stone cladding to the front piers, which has really given the home a whole new look and feel. Finish that off with new cedar wood double front doors and a unique feature garage door and the owners are left with a complete overhaul of the front profile!” says Suzanne.
No room or space was overlooked, with a new master bedroom and guest bedroom featuring huge walk-ins and ensuites, a spacious family study and replacement of the dated timber staircase balustrade with a modern cable balustrade.
From a new storage room in the garage and a sneaky storeroom beneath the stairs, to overhead cabinetry in the laundry and a large walk-in pantry, enough storage space was added to make any storage lover coo with delight.
