Outdoor Living Spaces

A well designed outdoor area or ‘Al Fresco’ can extend your living space, improve the flow of movement, and add value to your home. Integrating an outdoor kitchen, café style glass doors and shaded coverage with a pergola or custom built structure will provide you with the perfect comforts to start enjoying life outdoors. We don’t just stop there; decking, landscaping, water features, swimming pools, and feature walls – we can transform your whole backyard!

Planning an outdoor living space can feel like a daunting process, due to the many considerations required to design and construct the area. Depending on the scope of the project some will require a simple approach with design, product selection and construction, while others may require additional site works, engineering, and council approval. Whatever the scope, large or small, we are experienced to provide a hassle free and completely project managed service.

To simplify the process for our clients we offer a ‘Design & Consultation Service’ to help plan and design your outdoor living space before building works commence. This service considers the needs and requirements of your family in order to plan and produce a functional, cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing design concept.

The following items are included within the Design & Consultation Service:

  • Site inspection and measure
  • Client consultation and brief of requirements
  • Complete 2D design concept of outdoor living space
  • Proposal of colours, finishes and other materials
  • Detailed quote for supply and building works

    With this information in hand, you as the client have the clarity needed to know exactly what you are getting and what it will cost you.

    If you are happy with our service and pricing for your project, we quickly schedule you in and commence the selections and renovation process. All projects whether large or small are completely managed by our project manager and site supervisor, ensuring you are communicated with every step of the way, supporting you with any questions or queries you may have during the construction process.

    Creative Home Renovations takes care of the entire process including design, supply of products and materials, and construction. Our Master Builders (MBA) accreditation, 10 year builders guarantee, and fully licensed team of tradesmen ensures you peace of mind that your project will be built to Australian standards with a superb quality finish.

  • Vogue Porcelain Sheeting

    Tiles have experienced a number of changes over the past decade, with the most notable being size. As the production of larger format tiles continued to grow, this caused an increase in labour costs to handle and lay the larger and heavier tiles. The challenge was to produce a beautiful, large yet lightweight product.

    Enter, Vogue porcelain sheeting.

    Growing in popularity for a number of commercial and domestic applications, porcelain sheeting suit clients wanting to achieve a seamlessly tiled look, with minimal grout lines and maximum ‘wow’ factor. The sheeting is manufactured in Bologna, Italy and imported to Australia, where it is being used in massive quantities predominantly for industrial and domestic projects.
    The benefits of the large sheeting are that once laid it looks like a sheet of marble or natural stone without all of the hassle that natural stone brings with it. With minimal grout lines it also means cleaning is minimised.

    The sheeting has a large range of applications including bathroom walls, fireplaces, feature walls, outdoor areas and kitchen splashbacks. The sheets range in size, the largest being a massive 1600mm x 3200mm (pictured) and a staggeringly thin 6mm in thickness down to the more common 600mm x 600mm.

    Creative Home Renovations, have integrated these porcelain sheets into their new showroom displays so they can be viewed in all their beauty.

    According to Stephen Maio, Director of Creative Home Renovations, “laying the porcelain sheets can be a more involved process for the tilers to install, and depending on the substrate, the large style of sheeting may not be suitable. Many tilers simply do not have the training or capabilities to install these large tiles. Our team at Creative Home Renovations have been trained and are equipped with the necessary tools to work with this product for a variety of applications.”

    An elegant and eye catching option for your new project.

    Why holiday when home can be paradise

    All the bliss of a holiday lifestyle in your own backyard? Yes, please. Outdoor entertaining has evolved and with just a few of the right elements, dramatic improvements can be made to any home. Arguably the most important of these elements is the integration of indoor-outdoor living spaces. Opening up the home to the outdoor living space, dramatically improves flow, natural lighting, and ventilation.

    Using sliding stacker or bi-fold café doors provides the flexibility of a large span opening and the feeling of open space. Raising the outdoor flooring to be level with the indoor flooring provides a seamless connection between the indoor-outdoor living spaces. This can be achieved with various flooring options including timber decking or exterior tiling, paving or a concrete aggregate mix.

    An outdoor pergola or patio provides protection from the elements all year-round, and the addition of gas or electric heating and fans can provide extra levels of comfort regardless of season. Including an outdoor kitchen with a BBQ, cooktop facilities and pizza oven, provides the ultimate inclusions into any outdoor living space. In an age where technology rules and the younger generation are immersed in their devices, outdoor family cooking can bring the fun and special times back to create those memorable moments in our lives.

    A well designed outdoor living space ultimately adds value to the property. It is important to understand that a liveable, functional and quality built outdoor living space is an investment into any home.
