Bell Of The Ball

Bathroom Overhauls Home Renovations Kitchen Makeovers Owner Builders West Footscray


Loved and lived in for many years, this home had got to the point it no longer suited its owners. With a central location in a leafy street, the Owners weren’t looking to move so the Joncol team were wrangled in to turn this ugly duckling into the bell of the ball.

First order of business; strip back the pvc cladding and bring the old weatherboards back to life. A new roof went over the original pitch of the house and new tiles were laid over the unsightly concrete front and side porches.

Internally new floating floors were laid, old doorways rejigged and opened up and a full paint refresh. The bathroom received a complete overhaul with an open plan design to allow for walker use in the future. A tiled niche, in-wall cistern and custom-made vanity bring the space to life.

In the heart of the home, the kitchen makeover is the star of the show. The kitchen was gutted and a well-designed modern large skylight was added to bring in much needed natural light. The old fireplace was integrated into the design as an appliances nook and fitted with LED strip lighting. Floating shelves above hold all the customary nick knacks and a coloured glass splashbacks was installed for easy cleaning.

Mostly designed by the couple’s children, this was a wonderful project to watch unfold and see the pride the whole family when reveal time came. There will be many more wonderful family memories made between these perfectly painted walls!
