Whether you are planning an altogether new home design or a renovation or an extension project, there is a good chance that you are preoccupied with the road that lies ahead. Aren’t you looking for the smartest way to crack the ‘design’ or the ‘reno’ code and negotiate through the project smoothly?
A flurry of questions on your mind
There are many questions on your mind. Will my designer extend the budget beyond my means? Will he be able to add multipurpose rooms to my home? How long will I have to take shelter elsewhere? It won’t be an exaggeration to say that you are all worked up.
Your home is an extension of your personality
Now, let us talk a little about the designing itself. You will agree that sometimes, the minutest changes alter the whole look of the home and at other times, even a full-scale renovation does nothing to its appearance. So, it goes without saying that your home designer is the most significant man out there.
Because we believe that your home says it all about you- who you are as a person and what your tastes and preferences are- we look to create homes that become the truest reflection of your personality. We try to achieve perfection not by making your home a place where nothing more can be added but by making it a place where nothing, just nothing can be subtracted- everything placed just right for the human glance.
Martin is a careful listener
All this cannot be done unless one becomes an avid listener. It is true that Martin Kolarik knows more about designing than the homeowners themselves but unless one listens to their “beating heart” and what their core sensibilities are, there is no way the perfect home can be built.
When a home designer tries to impress his own identity upon a project, he creates a great vision but certainly not one that is aligned to the vision of the homeowner. This is why Martin thinks that the road ahead starts with listening intently to everything that a homeowner has to say about his liking, dreams and vision.
New home design
What plans does a homeowner have in the short and the long term? What is his/her budget like? What is the precise need of the family (based on the lifestyle of the individual members)? Are the residents of the home the partying-the-barbecue-style type or relaxing-on-the-patio type? There is just so much that needs being pondered over when a home designer goes for a new home design project.
A home’s utilitarian/functional aspect has to be catered to. This can include, but is certainly not limited to natural light and ventilation. Its cosmetic aspect has to be looked into just as well. Think of the swimming pool or the home cinemas. And most important is the judgement of most suitable form and scale. Martin loves clean lines, simple, de-cluttered technique of home design.
Home renovation in Pymble
In the long years of being associated with the home design industry, one thing has become amply clear. The best renovations are those which are conducted in an all-encompassing way. You do not want to give a contemporary facelift to your kitchen and leave your bathroom in shambles. To this effect, while undertaking home renovation in Pymble, Martin looks for the most cost-effective way to take up the whole house project. Given his great desire to bring a cheer to his clients, most often he aligns the budget with the purse of the client even when the scope of the project is bigger than what the homeowner originally intended.
If you are living on the Alma Street or the Bannockburn road, you are probably safe but if, say, you are a resident of the Bolwarra Avenue, you will already know the potential threat of bushfires. Martin understands well enough that the forces of nature, because they cannot be tamed easily, shall never be underestimated. Thus, in all his new home design and renovation efforts, he is quick to incorporate bushfire safety measures. He also carefully updates his knowledge about the council regulations pertaining to bushfire; one reason why he has never had problems with council approvals.
