The 4 Best Apartment Renovations in Sydney to Increase Value


Apart from making the place look nice, your apartment renovations should also contribute to an increase in its value. If you end up making an investment in some unnecessary modifications and additions, you may not get a good return on it afterwards.

In this post, we are going to be looking at four of the best renovations that you can do in your apartment to increase its value while simultaneously improving your living experience.

4 Best Apartment Renovations in Sydney to Increase Value

1. Bathroom Renovations

Bathroom renovations can go a long way to increase the value of your apartment.


A bathroom with an unkempt and lifeless look can dampen the look of the whole apartment, even if the rest of the area is styled and modelled excellently.

When it comes to bathroom renovations, here are some things that you can keep in mind:

  • Picking the Right Colour Theme

There are few things that can deaden the look of a bathroom more than a gloomy and dark colour theme. Black-tiled bathrooms do have an appeal of their own, but they don’t fit well in all types of apartments.

As a general rule, bathrooms with an overall white theme look more lively and inviting. It can help if you go for a minimalist layout by adding a sparing number of fixtures and storage units.

  • Adding A Suitable Number of Storage Spaces

Small cabinets and storage units can give bathrooms a cozy and ‘convenient’ look. However, these types of fixtures should not be added a lot… otherwise the bathroom can start looking overcrowded.

You should settle for things like a vanity unit, a shower cabinet and some indented recesses for placing items like scented candles and fake plants.

  • Installing Recessed Ceiling Lights

Recessed ceiling lights – apart from looking aesthetic and stylish – can really help with the overall lighting arrangement in the bathroom. Instead of sufficing on just a single tube light or bulb, you can add a symmetrical layout of recessed lights instead.

2.Kitchen Renovations

The kitchen is one of the main and major rooms in any apartment. Depending on the layout of the place, the kitchen could be the first thing that any person walking inside the flat would see.

By renovating your kitchen, you can not only make it look stylish and aesthetic, but you can also make the time spent inside it comfortable and more enjoyable.

Here are some ideas that you can try out when remodelling your kitchen:

  • Focus on Clearing Some Space Up

If the previous layout of your kitchen is somewhat cramped (due to an odd positioning of the island or the counter), you should think about remodelling the place to get some more space.

As we mentioned above, a smart and quality remodel will leave you with the aesthetics you want along with added space and room for your work.

You could, for example, make the counters around the edge of the room and leave the centre empty. Or you could arrange the counter in such a way as to get more room for your appliances around the edge instead.

  • Go for Matching and Spacious Cabinets

Large cabinets can really enhance the look of your kitchen while also giving you more space to store your utensils and appliances. You can match them with the colour of your floor and ceiling to give the whole room a minimalistic and uniform look.

3. Painting

Painting your apartment can also revitalise its whole look and change it from looking dim and shabby to vibrant and lively.

If you want, you can go with the same paint for the whole apartment. Or you can try varying colours in different rooms and make every part of your apartment stand out uniquely.

Mind you, if you want to go with a different colour scheme for each room in your apartment, you should make and follow a specific combination.

For example, you could make a combination of white, peach and beige and then use these three colours in different places in the apartment. That way, there will be a nice aesthetic colour synchronisation that you will get to enjoy.

The direct opposite of doing this (which is not all recommended) is to go for highly contrasting colours for different rooms. You definitely don’t want to, for example, paint your living room purple, your bedroom acid green, the kitchen pink and the bathroom orange.

While some homeowners may even manage to pull off an aesthetic look with this type of paint job, it would (in most cases) leave the place looking like a circus.

4. Flooring

Nothing changes the look of an apartment as much as the flooring. If you want to work on renovating your apartment, the floors should be one of your top priorities.

Here are some different options that you can choose from when it comes to flooring.

  • Tiles

Tiles are one of the most common types of flooring used in houses, condos and apartments. As compared to other types of floors, tiles are durable and long-lasting. They are also easier to clean due to the smooth surface top.

Tiles can also be found in a variety of different shapes and designs, which makes them the ideal type of flooring for people who want a custom look tailored to the rest of their apartment.

Hardwood floors are the go-to option for homeowners who want to make their apartments exotic.


Hardwood floors are easy to maintain, and they can significantly enhance the looks of your apartment. If you match them with other furniture in the place, you can create an overall stylish and artistic combination.
