Home Looks 10 Times Better After Renovation


Indooroopilly Home Renovation

Interior Design, Renovations

This 1960’s home was certainly nothing to write home about in terms of its appearance. Whilst the property had solid ‘bones’ the exterior of the home was bland at best. Inside it lacked space and organisation resulting in a home that was low in terms of comfort and liveability.

Our Renovation Priorities

Home Renovations that Focus on You and Your Family

As architects and interior designers with years of training and practical expertise, we always prioritise your family’s comfort, lifestyle, and enjoyment above everything. That’s why we’ll always consider the following when planning renovations for your home:


Existing home style and design

It’s important that any renovation design considers the existing styling of the home, taking into account any parts of the home that you love and those things that you want to change, the whole time creating a design to suit your budget and lifestyle needs. At dion seminara architecture we understand that the perfect home renovation can sometimes be achieved through carefully planned refinement rather than a complete overhaul.


Home aspect, views and privacy

Your home should be your sanctuary, a place where you can escape the outside world and live the life that you choose to live in private. Which is why our designs will always take your personal privacy into account. This can be achieved whilst still taking advantage of any views that your home has to offer, giving you a stunning outlook that captures the beauty of your surroundings.


Renovations wish list and objectives

Your home renewal will achieve and even exceed your dreams. We get to know your desires and objectives in detail before creating custom designs that perfectly suit your needs. Our renovation architects are experts at creating dream renovations within a budget. Each aspect of your renovation will be meticulously planned to ensure that it works within the existing home whilst achieving your project goals.

Choose professional renovation architects for home renovations

Improve your home’s style and functionality

Professional architects will know the best ways to enhance your home’s look and function, including any changes that may not seem apparent or obvious. There’s more to improving your home’s visual appeal than simply changing the way it looks, and the right professionals will know what changes need to be made and how to do it.

Increase your real estate value

Architecturally renovated homes stand the test of time, and they can definitely increase your home’s value on the market. Not only can this increase your total assets, but it can also put you in a better market position if you decide to sell your property later. It’s an investment opportunity that can pay off now and in the future.


Home renovations require compliance with town planning requirements and building approvals. Not to mention negotiations with builders, plumbers, electricians and your surrounding neighbours. Our renovation architects are experts and can guide you through all these steps so that you can save time and money throughout your home renovations.

As architects and interior designers with years of training and practical expertise, we always prioritise your family’s comfort, lifestyle, and enjoyment above everything.
