Brick and Tile Unit, Takapuna

Problem.

1950's decor in the heart of Takapuna. In need of a facelift to modernise, create a sense of space and add light to a 60m2 two bedroom brick and tile end unit.

Solution.

Removed all Floor Coverings to expose wooden floor boards, sanded and polished. Demolished the shower over bath, tiled floors and walls, installed a custom sized shower with glass surrounds, fitted new toilet, recessed mirror cabinet, space saving wall mounted vanity with sink and heated towel rail, new bright lights with ventilation. Remove the wall dividing the kitchen and lounge area to create a large open plan lounge and kitchen area, fit for entertaining. Utilising a classic U shape kitchen the unit was lacking wall room for a workable cooking space, we sectioned off one window panel to allow room for a full size rangehood and incorporated a front loading washing machine into the large kitchen area. With floor to ceiling height cupboards on the pantry side and a built in fridge space this area now feels large and has added incredible light to the entire kitchen and lounge area. The finishing touches we added modern light fittings in neutral colours and white timber blinds.
