Character Home Renovations

Renovating and extending character homes is a highly specialised area of building. Craftsmanship of the highest standard is required to ensure that the features of an older style home are carefully integrated into the new addition.

Addstyle Master Builders is the Perth character home renovation specialist with a reputation for outstanding craftsmanship and unparalleled attention to detail.

Every Perth Character Home Has A Story

Character homes have a special place in Perth’s suburban landscape. From California bungalows to federation homes and charming cottages, these unique heritage designs hold stories about Perth’s history.

Character home renovations and restorations are a highly specialised area of building. They don’t make them like they used to – and for that reason we keep a close eye on every detail to preserve the character that attracted you in the first place while integrating the features modern life demands.

Perth Heritage Homes with A Modern Update

Perth heritage homes often have features that need to be protected and hidden secrets that need to be anticipated, which can make a homeowner nervous to renovate. They can also be a trap for the inexperienced, including builders used to working with new construction.

Addstyle has over 30 years of experience bringing these beautiful pieces of Perth’s history up to modern standards, taking care not to damage or disturb heritage elements.

Addstyle has also been awarded multiple accolades for it’s work with character homes including twice winning the City of Stirling Heritage Award for Conservation and Restoration of a Heritage Place where Addstyle was commended for “demonstrating excellence in the restoration and extension of a heritage building”.

Your Home, Your Design

Most character homes were built at least a few decades ago when the technology and comforts we take for granted today were still science fiction.

In some cases, a charmingly eccentric design from yesteryear translates to strange floor plans, dated features and bedrooms that unsuitable for Perth families today.

With carefully considered design, you can still have the character home of your dreams with contemporary additions for modern living.

Working closely with you to bring your vision to life, our character home renovations seamlessly merge the old and new with bespoke designs that extend, or elegantly contrast, the existing home.

Character Home Renovations of Any Scale

Updating Perth character homes to meet the demands of modern life is our specialty, whether you are updating a tired laundry, extending through the old outdoor area or adding a second storey.

Today’s must-haves like spacious living areas, open plan kitchens, outdoor entertaining spaces, and bedrooms for the kids to grow into, are not usually features of Perth character homes. Allow us to work with you to integrate old-world charm into modern living spaces designed to suit your lifestyle.

I was introduced to Addstyle through one of their young architects who bought a guitar from me! I was considering building a small home studio on a spare bit of land I had behind my garage. He recommended Addstyle for the sort of project that i envisaged. The decision was sound. Between Joe, the architect, and myself we concocted the best way to use the available space. The construction team headed by Simon Hill and John Peacock proved to be very helpful and flexible. The workmanship was excellent and the contractors considerate and friendly. The project was completed on time and the site was left tidy. Some areas of the contract were ambiguous, however Addstyle did everything in their power to make me happy with the finished result. The whole team is very professional , including the Dee and the rest of the office staff. Special thanks go to Simon for being always available and personally taking care of any misunderstandings. Good company!!

Teena Dyer

A pleasure to deal with from the very beginning in getting quotes to the final handover and follow up. Great team of Tradies who were always polite and friendly and fantastic guidance and advice from Dee in the office. Would not hesitate to recommend Adstyle!

Absolutely cannot fault this company. From start, with never ending questions to the end this company goes above and beyond what you would expect. Cannot fault in any way.

Lara Skinner

Addstyle did our kitchen renovation earlier this year in our Claremont house! I was blown away with the service from their tradies and the site supervisor. Addstyle understood from the very beginning the image we wanted to create and it was so well delivered. The workmanship was second to none. I highly recommend such a professional company to anyone that is a little hesitant of renovating. Lara and Russell Skinner

Kate Ranson

Best Reno team in Perth! They converted my single garage into an amazing laundry/scullery and the end result is fantastic. The service was next to none from the initial design stage, through the building and construction stage and to handover. All the staff and tradesmen we're exceptionally helpful and went over and above to make this process smooth and efficient. Thankyou for such a great service and probably the best laundry in Perth.

Ted Currie

Extremely happy with the new look. Overall, an enjoyable experience, especially considering the challenges we gave the Construction Team. A pleasure to meet these friendly, flexible & efficient individuals.

Wayne Dwyer

The team at Addstyle were amazing. Very professional with great advice on what options were available to us throughout our renovation.

Addstyle was the last on my list as I searched and got several quotes from other builders to carry out an extension to our very old and treasured home. I walked the streets of Menora and having seen their work I thought they would be far from my budget. After my first consult with Simon I was sold! The experience with Addstyle has been a very positive and the final finish product has surpassed all our expectations. The build has not interfered with our life and we have found ALL Addstyle staff have gone far beyond to create such beautiful extension. Rede has been a huge support to me and his knowledge and expertise has made my life easier. Nothing has been too much for him to do. I would also like to mention Dee and thank her for all her help to get this project on its way. From my initial meeting with Simon Pullen to my daily contact with Rede I hold Addstyle in the highest regard as a builder, workmanship, contractors etc will recommend them to anyone. The feedback from family, friends and strangers to the finished renovation make me very glad I chose Addstyle and I will continue to use them to complete my home.


We are so glad to have chosen Addstyle to design and build our carport and workshop, to our federation style property. From the start, the advice and support has been superb, making the the whole process easy and uncomplicated. The build quality and attention to detail is outstanding, and we are extremely delighted with the result. All stages of the development and build were wonderfully managed. We'd especially like to thank Liam, our site manager, for his exceptional help and support in making this an even more streamlined and easy process. We felt that Liam went above and beyond to assist with our queries, giving us sound advice and guidance as well as liaising with other trades on our behalf. We consider Liam to be an asset to the Addstyle team. We highly recommend Addstyle, for their professionalism, vision and expertise.
