If you are just tuning into Kyal and Kara’s Toowoon Bay Reno, take a moment to see where they started. While most people would have knocked this old house down, Kyal and Kara saw the potential to turn it into a beautiful coastal home. Over the last 5 months we’ve had a peek into how expert renovators Kyal and Kara transform a house and now we get to see the results!
Kyal and Kara have created a timeless, classic look for this beach-side home that will not date. They wanted the home to be desirable to potential buyers in a years’ time or in 10 years’ time. To achieve this, they future-proofed their renovation choices by going for classic finishes like timber and stone, and timeless features like French doors and casement windows.
In the last few weeks of the renovation, Kyal and kara have been focusing on all the finishing touches. Starting with a classic canvas of greys, whites and neutrals, we get to see how special touches here and there, including plants, lighting features and accessories give Kyal and Kara’s space its own character.
One of the reasons this property was so attractive to Kyal and Kara, was the fact that there was a large backyard where a studio could be built with side access. We’ve seen the studio constructed from the ground up, and now we get to see the final styling.
As the studio is a small space, Kyal and Kara knew that it’s important to use design features and window planning that help the space feel light and airy. Raked ceilings and highlite windows over the sliding doors helps to bring light in, and achieve the feeling of more space than there actually is! Multiple sliding doors expand the living area by connecting the outside and inside living.
The transformation from red brick block to coastal oasis is complete, and Wideline are proud to see our windows and doors in such a beautiful home.
So what’s Kyal and Kara’s advice for anyone wanting to tackle a renovation? Once you start to see changes taking place, you get motivated for the next change. So keep moving.
