A Few Examples Of Major Ponsonby Home Renovations

Home renovations PonsonbyHome renovations have become extremely popular over the past few years as more homeowners are choosing to remain in the same home longer rather than buying another home. However, in order to make room for growing families, renovations have become a necessity instead of a luxury.

With that being said, there are five types of major renovation projects that are popular among homeowners and Ponsonby home renovations builders. These renovations are based on:


  • Increased need for space
  • Updating the home
  • A reflection of the family

Bathroom Renovations

Although bathroom renovations are typically not considered to be on the same scale of other major home renovations, like in kitchen renovations, any renovations made in the bathroom may include plumbing. If so, the bathroom would be unusable for a period of time. This is an important consideration that must be made before any changes take place. Good Ponsonby home renovations builders will advise you on your project ideas before you commit to the final job.

This type of renovation is done to not only provide more luxury in the home, but this renovation could also be done to help the household save on electricity and water by installing energy-efficient fixtures.

Adding Another Bathroom

The renovation can be done to provide a teenage child with their own bathroom, or it can be done to offer guests a private bathroom that is not in use by members of the family. Before this renovation can begin, it is imperative to take into account all plumbing considerations, zoning restrictions, and potential general construction issues.

Basement Renovations

Deciding to finish a basement is one of the best ways to increase the amount of livable space in the home. A finished basement can serve many purposes such as:

  • A completed bedroom suite
  • A studio apartment
  • A movie-room
  • A game-room
  • An in-law suite

Any renovations being made to a basement will not only require a measurable amount of time and work, but it must also begin with a feasible design plan as well.

Kitchen Renovations

Kitchen renovations are considered to be the most important of all home renovations. When done correctly, this type of renovation can greatly increase a home’s resale value if and when it goes on the market.

These renovations are also completed for a variety of reasons, and the most common reason of all is to use the space around the kitchen. They are also completed to update the fixtures and/or cabinetry, or simply done in conjunction with other renovations in the home.

House extensions

It is also popular to add a room or two to a home to increase its size. In fact, families will often add one or two rooms once children reach a certain age so all of the children can have their own room.

However, room addition renovations can also be done if you want to add an office, sunroom or game room to the house. In this situation, the rest of the home is left undisturbed. As with other renovation projects, the internal structure of the home must be considered because it will be altered during the process.

These are five of the major home renovations completed by Ponsonby home builders. They oversee the entire process and provide feedback and assistance while the renovations are being completed.
