Brilliant New Home Extension & Renovation in Burwood


Picture your own brand new Master Bedroom, WIR and Ensuite, a wing you can retreat to, and a view to a fresh and fabulous entertainment space in Melbourne.  At Lifestyle By Design we’re the makers of dreams that come true!

Lifestyle By Design are proud to have recently completed an innovative update to what was an old 1950’s home, and also add on a new parent’s retreat extension.  True to our mandate ‘to provide custom builds like no other’, we were able to negotiate the finer details about what needed to happen, by paying close attention to local Planning Laws, and worked closely with the founding designer of the project, Rob Harris of Elements of Home.

The existing house originally featured only two bedrooms and a single bathroom, but, with a small wall demolition, and careful attention to detail, we were able add a stunning Master Bedroom, Walk-in Robe, spacious Ensuite (with an enormous shower, dual vanity basins and a claw foot bath) and an extended hallway.

As with many home extensions today, the new section was built on the boundary, which limits the allowance for natural light windows to the additional rooms.  To address this we installed a Velux skylight, bulk head lighting, a plethora of new energy-efficient LED downlights, brilliant bi-fold doors from the bedroom to the great outdoors, and a selection of stunning new pendants to light the way.  Old cork floor areas have been refreshed with elegant timbers, and the laundry is now resplendent with not only a full make-over, but also new custom-made 2 Pak cupboards, a Caeserstone® benchtop and a modern glass splashback.

With its new Six Star Rating, this extension includes external materials closely matched to the existing weatherboards, pitched Colorbond® roof, and double glazed windows.

The owners are now enjoying their new-found home and we’re delighted to share their experiences with us:

“LBD were the perfect team to bring our dreams of a brilliant Extension and Renovation to fruition.  We are ecstatic with the final result and the seamlessness with which they delivered the transformation of our existing old, 1950’s style home.

From our first meeting with Brad, during the tender process, and throughout the entire project, we received nothing but outstanding service, communication, honest consultations and advice from their entire team. Brad was accommodating and attentive in providing the estimates and contract in the early stages, and, once we signed on, Nick did a great job managing the build onsite from start-to-finish.  No request was too difficult to fulfil and no query was too trivial for the team to answer – which was really comforting and crucial to the amazing end result.

Whether by phone, email or text LBD made themselves available at any time, and we were never left waiting for a response.  The team were also very proactive in providing us with regular updates.  We also requested specific design elements and fixtures and fittings, including a unique, custom-made vanity with a difficult glass benchtop, and their efforts were tireless and quality-driven in making sure it was exactly what we wanted.

They are genuine, respectful, passionate and proud of their work, and this is further enhanced by the obviously strong relationships they have with their core tradespeople and suppliers.  In fact, everyone we dealt with was always friendly and pleasant, and worked hard to reach designated target dates, ultimately finishing our extension ahead of schedule AND on budget. 

LBD can’t be beaten for their attention to quality, ongoing professionalism and service excellence.  And the bottle of champagne and flowers they presented to us at our final inspection was a lovely touch!  We will definitely engage with LBD for our ongoing renovation projects in the near future. 

Everything they did turned out even better than we had imagined.”  Danielle and Jackie, Burwood (2016)
