We’ve rounded up five different home makeovers to get you inspired to give your place a new look. Whether you want to do a complete home renovation or just touch up one or two rooms, these makeovers show you what’s possible.

1. Bright white kitchen renovation

A dark and dated kitchen was given a much-needed face lift, taking it out of the 1970s and into the 21st century. The owners replaced the dark faux wood panelling with simple white cabinets and added marble benchtops, white hexagonal tiles and new wood flooring to give the space a fresh modern look. They also removed a wall behind the refrigerator to create more space.

2. Black-and-white bathroom renovation 

An old, run-down bathroom received a huge transformation in this Missouri home. The owners chose a theme of black and white with individual touches such as the two-toned herringbone floor tiles. The old sink was replaced with a modern vanity, allowing for extra storage.

3. A Brisbane ‘hoarder house’ completely transformed

A neglected Paddington home was completely gutted and transformed into a modern Queenslander. While a renovation like this does require a significant budget, what we like about this project is the way the builders have managed to stick with the traditional Queenslander style.

4. Budget bedroom makeover

This renovation is less about construction and more about a fresh coat of paint mixed with some beautifully styled decor and furniture. The clever use of lamps, an eye-catching pressed-tin bedhead, white furniture and indoor plants makes the room feel brighter and more spacious.

5. Quirky and colourful living room makeover

Bright pops of colour and a variety of new textures give this living room a quirky, creative feel. We love the use of wallpaper in this room, as well as the large bright floor rug. White paint on the remaining walls and swapping dark wood furniture for lighter timbers creates the illusion of more space.
