This is part of our first home reno series. Please remember to read our "Reno & Home Improvement Advice" blog before you attempt such a large project on your own.
Luxurious Style and Comfort
The master bedroom was to be "Luxe" modern, of a generous size, while offering the convenience of an ensuite and extra storage for clothes via a walk-through wardrobe/dressing area.
In order to achieve the look that we wanted we needed to completely strip out the entire area, take one door out and add another, create bulkhead reveals in wardrobe areas, remove existing windows and external awning and totally replace whole bathroom area and fittings.
As always, we chose the better of the contractors to carry out works like the bathroom renovation as we wanted the job done properley and to high standard. We were however able to purchase real high-end fittings at greatly reduced prices through a warehouse that specialises in offering run out items and so called "damaged" goods that have really only not got their original packaging, we saved a heap here without any quality compromises! (Note you can opt or bathroom renovators to include fittings but we chose to get our own).
The kitchen benchtop was carried through to the bathroom with both the style of the floor tiles and the sink bench top which was made of the same material and profile.
The double-glazed windows chosen, gave us not only great insulation from noise and temperature extremes, but also allowed us to clean the outside of the windows from inside via the central window opening inwards fully, very handy!
Wardrobe doors gave the room a real lift and the clever storage design inside made the most of the space available.
Curtains, carpets, rugs, light fittings, bedding, furniture and artworks just finished it off wonderfully, well for us anyway.

Mark was flexible and aware of my needs on a tricky job. He was most professional and can't recommend him highly enough!

Clint Webster-Hill was fantastic - he was professional and friendly at all times, negotiated through a difficult situation with our neighbour on our behalf and built an excellent fence. He took all the stress of "will they show up?" , "Will they do what they said?" , etc, all the issues people complain about. We would thoroughly recommend using Clint for any fencing you need done - Thank you Clint!

cont.. Again, his communication was brilliant and answered every question we had. Now that the retaining wall is finished, it looks great, and Harley’s work shines as we cannot find one single fault. I would highly recommend Harley to any friends and family for future work. And he will be the first person we call when needing anything else.

We have just had Terry Smith redo our back fence. It was difficult to do as it was flush with the back shed. A brilliant job was done. Concrete Foundations dug deep and erected. Fence looks good , Two days taken to erect ; no corners cut with work. A lovely man to have on your property with no concern re your home safety with an unknown man. Will certainly have Terry back to do carpentry maintenance when required. I am someone who is very fussy about having strangers on our property. Will certainly have Terry back to do any carpentry jobs.

Shaun Smiley from VIP – Fencing responded promptly to my job enquiry. He visited our site before submitting a quotation with improved specifications. His attention to detail and product knowledge was impressive. Shaun responded to all my queries on a timely basis and also made sure our neighbour was happy. We are very happy with our new colorbond fence. Thanks again Shaun.

Our company recently engaged Warren Smith from VIP home services to have a fence replaced on behalf of one of our clients. We found Warren to be both professional and thorough in his approach and workmanship with a real can do attitude. We have since used his services on 2 further occasions and would have no hesitation in recommending him. Regards Russell Mcinnes

To Whom it may concern, We are absolutely thrilled to have had the pleasure of working with Angelo (Ange). We were so lucky Ange was able to fit our job in due to a cancellation. Ange went above and beyond to ensure that both ourselves and our neighbours were happy throughout the whole process. He worked back during the week and was there on the weekend. The fence was completed on-time even though there was some lost time initially. Ange you are a credit to yourself and the VIP brand. I will certainly be recommending Ange and VIP to all my friends and family. All the best mate and Merry Christmas

Thanks for doing such a great job. That one is definitely not going to fall over. After the dramas with the last fence it was so good to get this resolved. You’ve done a wonderful job. Thanks again.
