From Dull to Dreamy: Transforming Your Vacation Home with a Stunning Renovation


Your vacation home should be a little slice of paradise ready to welcome you immediately. If renting out your vacation home is an option, then a handy extra stream of income awaits, but in either case, the importance of turning your vacation retreat from a mere dwelling into an oasis of tranquillity and charm is paramount.

B&S Nelson is the home builder Tuncurry/Forster residents know and trust, and as renovation experts, we delve into the realms of renovation to ensure your holiday home makes every getaway a memorable masterpiece.

Make those windows bigger

Few architectural features are as transformative as tall and or floor-to-ceiling windows. These expansive windows frame the outside world like living works of art and create a connection between the interior and exterior, allowing you to bask in the breathtaking natural scenery that defines the essence of a vacation retreat.

Nowhere is the impact of floor-to-ceiling windows more than in beach houses. Big windows cast a warm and inviting glow across your living space, introducing abundant natural light into your vacation home. The brilliance of sunlight streaming through these expansive panes can radically transform the ambience of any room. Natural light is a powerful mood enhancer, creating an atmosphere of openness, positivity, and vitality.

The options are endless, from sleek modern frames that blend seamlessly with contemporary architecture to rustic wooden frames that exude warmth and character. The choice of window panes is equally diverse, ranging from clear glass for unobstructed views to frosted or tinted glass for privacy or to control the intensity of sunlight.

Add an outdoor kitchen

Tired of the hassle of a portable grill or taking food in and out of the house during outdoor gatherings? Outdoor kitchens let convenience meet elegance, functionality, and, when done right, style.

Adding an outdoor kitchen space to your vacation home can redefine the art of outdoor cooking and your level of entertainment. No more logistical challenges of makeshift outdoor cooking setups, an outdoor kitchen means all the tools and amenities you need to whip up a delectable meal are right where you need them.

Quality outdoor kitchen design is centred on two key principles: elegance and practicality. Your outdoor cooking space should be functional and seamlessly blend with your home’s aesthetics. We recommend an emphasis on modern stainless steel appliances. Stainless steel not only exudes contemporary sophistication but also offers durability and ease of maintenance, ensuring your outdoor kitchen remains a stunning focal point for years to come.

Focus on improving the bathroom

There’s no place quite like the bathroom in the realm of relaxation. A well-designed bathroom can transcend its functional purpose, becoming a haven of tranquillity and rejuvenation. When crafting the perfect vacation home, ensuring that the bathroom is up to the task of delivering the ultimate relaxation experience is paramount. After all, a getaway should be defined by moments of serenity and comfort, and the bathroom plays a pivotal role in creating those moments.

In the pursuit of designing a bathroom that resonates with the desires of vacation-goers, spaciousness and illumination take centre stage. People seek refuge in rooms that feel open and airy. When planning your vacation home’s bathroom, consider using space-enhancing design elements. Mirrors that amplify the room’s depth strategically placed windows that welcome natural light, and a layout that minimises clutter create an expansive, inviting atmosphere.

As the top choice for a home bathroom renovation Tuncurry/Forster-wide, we like to use neutral colour palettes and sleek materials. Clean lines and polished surfaces like marble evoke a sense of refinement, while their durability ensures lasting beauty.

Include LED lighting fixtures

Lighting is pivotal in setting the tone and mood of any space, and upgrading to LED lighting fixtures can work wonders in creating an ambience that is both invigorating and soothing throughout the home. Opt for cooler tones that mimic natural daylight, steering clear of the harsh, amber-hued light that can detract from a new renovation’s modern and fresh aesthetic.
