Total Transformation: Torrens Park House Renovated from Derelict to Modern Home in Adelaide’s South East

We renovated the facade of the home, living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, laundry, kitchen & the outdoor entertaining area.

In late 2018, the renovation experts received a call to quote for a new kitchen in a Torrens Park property. Upon arrival, they were astonished by the state of the house, which was nothing more than four walls and a roof.

The previous builder had gone bankrupt in the early stages of renovation, leaving the owner with a bare shell and in total disarray. After a conversation with the owner, the renovation experts suggested taking on the whole renovation project, and they were able to deliver the owner’s dream home within four months.

The team transformed the mid-70s cream brick house into a modern 2020s style home. They moved the kitchen to the rear of the house and added an extra bedroom and separate laundry within the existing structure.

The renovation involved a range of tradespeople, including carpenters, electricians, plumbers, tilers, pest control, painters, plasterers, renderers, steam cleaners, bricklayers, glaziers, window installers, quick cut and wall removal team, and cabinetry specialists. The team coordinated and oversaw the whole project, completing the renovation on time and within the owner’s budget.

Although the pictures do not fully convey the extent of the disarray the team began with, they showcase the significant transformation that took place. The owner was delighted with the result and even invited the team to the housewarming party.

If you are planning a major renovation but are not sure where to start, the experts suggest that they can provide a quote for more than just fantastic kitchens and cabinetry. They can offer the whole house renovation and coordinate it for you.

Renovating vs building new

When it comes to improving your living space, the decision to renovate or build a new home in Adelaide can be a tough one. While both options have their pros and cons, there are several benefits to renovating your home that may make it a more appealing choice.

Firstly, renovating your home can be more cost-effective than building a new one. Renovations allow you to work with your existing space and make necessary improvements without the added expense of starting from scratch. Additionally, renovating your home can increase its value, making it a smart investment in the long run.

Secondly, renovating your home allows you to maintain the character and charm of your existing space. Building a new home may mean sacrificing the unique features and history of your current home, which can be a loss for many homeowners.

Thirdly, renovating your home allows you to customise your living space to your specific needs and preferences. Whether you want to create a more open floor plan, add more natural light, or update your kitchen with new cabinetry and countertops, renovating your home can provide you with the opportunity to tailor your space to your lifestyle.

Finally, renovating your home can be a more sustainable option than building a new one. By reusing and repurposing existing materials, you can reduce waste and minimise your environmental impact.

In summary, while building a new home in Adelaide may seem like an attractive option, renovating your existing space can offer several benefits, including cost-effectiveness, the ability to maintain character, customisation, and sustainability. If you’re considering renovating your home, Alluring Kitchens can help you design and build a space that meets your unique needs and style.

We selected Alluring Kitchens to carry out a rejuvenation of our 30 year old kitchen, having previously used Steve's services a few years ago for some minor work. The team at Alluring Kitchens could not have been more helpful or professional throughout the entire process. Everything, from visiting Fiona at the workshop/showroom, discussing options for a new benchtop, discussing the cut down of the existing jarrah breakfast bar with Steve, to dealing with the various tradespeople was done with the minimum of concern on our part and the utmost of professionalism and care on their part The excellent communications along the way meant we were always aware of what was happening and when the next tradesperson was due. A special mention to Daniel, for his excellent work in this aspect of the process. Steve has assembled an excellent team of people who clearly take great pride in their work. Everyone associated with Alluring Kitchens was very professional and courteous and went out of their way to make the process as seamless and stress free as possible, with the end result that we have a kitchen that has a new lease of life and looks wonderful. We cannot recommend Alluring Kitchens highly enough.

Alluring Kitchens are a professional and honest business. Steve and his workers are amazing. The craftsmanship of the masonry for the black bench and focus that was put into our kitchen, just blew us away. Highly recommended for those who seek to remodel their kitchen on a reasonable budget. As you see before and after pictures. PS Kitchen is only partly remodelled

Steve from Alluring Kitchens helped me design my new kitchen which is not only beautiful but extremely functional. I was so impressed with their professionalism and turn around time to complete. All trades were coordinated very well and everyone was very pleasant to deal with.
From first point of contact Steve has been prompt, professional, and informative about all aspects of the kitchen & laundry renovations I was looking for. Nothing discussed was too big of a task. The installs went exactly to plan, with the team keeping me informed on what was happening every step of the process. Can’t thank Steve and the team enough for renovating both spaces by opening up the areas all while keeping the original house cottage feel. They were a pleasure to work with and highly recommend Alluring Kitchens to anyone looking for a top quality and professional job!
