Home Renovation Ideas
If you are looking for ideas and ways to renovate your home, Capital Building can help with designs for:
- Bathroom renovations
- New bathroom additions, stand-alone and en-suite

Our comprehensive experience as building contractors has provided us with the knowledge to advise if your house or property is worth saving and we can suggest the most effective design approach to achieve maximum value to match your budget and needs.
A home renovation can also mean maintenance and repairs completed on roofing and guttering, windows, electrical wiring, plumbing and installation of insulation.

- Aesthetic appeal in harmony with your current home
- Improving street appeal
- Energy efficiency and sustainability
- Improvement of both natural and generated light
- Best utilisation and creation of space
- The use of appropriate and quality materials
- Meticulous attention to detail, be it restoring period homes or contemporary face lifts.
Why Do A Home Renovation? What Are The Benefits?
Capital Building has renovated or restored a diverse range of buildings, including period homes, terraced houses, brand new houses, contemporary homes and rustic houses. We have the knowledge, know-how and understanding to ensure that the comfort and functionality of our renovations transform your home, providing comfort and pleasure as well as added value to the property.
Renovations and alteration works almost always cost less than building a new home. If your living requirements have changed or you wish to improve the value of your home but without changing your address, home renovation is the answer.
So let us help you figure out what your next steps should be in building your dream home renovation. You can call us, request a callback or request a quote.
The benefit of engaging with a designer-builder on the outset is that they can work to a budget. Often, people get plans from a drafting company or architect and then get a big surprise as to how much it all costs.
By doing it all at the same time, you can avoid cost-shock and save time in the engagement (and build) process.
We deliver high quality, exceptional work, fostering innovation, and quality suppliers & contractors.
