Justine - Real Life Reno

Courtney Cole

The young, innovative design and build company - Future Flip, worked with Justine to create a beautiful modern duplex home in the Sutherland Shire, NSW. She booked a design appointment with our head creative Floss and came up with breathtaking concepts for her bathrooms. Using our Byron ivory in all of the bathrooms for a sense of continuity in the home and a variation of our Newport subways, get inspired by the Irrubel project for your next renovation. 



What did you renovate?
New build.

What motivated you to renovate?
Moved house as it was old and wanted to build a new duplex.

Why did you pick Future Flip to do your renovations?
We had seen many duplex's in the area that Futureflip had built and liked their finishes.

How would you describe your style?
Classic/ Natural.

For your duplex renovation did you decide to go with the same design on both sides? Why or why not?
Yes we went with the same as we didn't want it to look any cheaper but the same quality.

Talk us through the process you took in the planning stages of the renovation?
Instagram and Pinterest gave me lots of ideas.

Did you and your partner or family butt heads over the design at all?
Not really we were on the same page for the majority.

Were there any delays? How long did the renovation take?
No delays, build went very smoothly.

What was the most challenging part of the renovation? Did anything go wrong?
Hoping your decisions on colour and finishes all works together in the end.

Did you come into the TileCloud showroom to look around at tiles? Did you order samples?
Yes went to showroom, Floss was very helpful in working with my style and offering advice. Yes I took samples which were helpful to take home and think on.

Why did you choose TileCloud / What did you enjoy best about the TileCloud experience?
TileCloud was recommend to us by our builder, Futureflip. Probably out of all the trades this experience was one of the easiest. It can get confusing having too many options and TileCloud had a simple but classic selection of tiles that I was looking for that made our decisions a lot easier.

Any advice for first time renovators?
Always take in the advice from the experts of the trade and then work in your own design thoughts with it, that way hopefully you wont make any mistakes!
