Renovation quick facts

Location: Paddington, Sydney

The client: Interstate investor looking to maximise Paddington rental return on investment.

The budget: $8000

The timeframe: 2 weeks

The solution: A range of repairs and upgrades to improve the condition and appearance of the rental property.

North Shore Interiors recommended a number of property repairs and renovations including:

  • repainting all internal walls
  • updating kitchen, wardrobe and bathroom architectural hardware
  • updating window treatments from tired curtains to contemporary blinds
  • replacing shower heads and tap fittings
  • re-grouting bathrooms
  • updating ceiling lights and light switches
  • replacing clothing hanging rails
  • thoroughly cleaning the patio areas.

Rental return maximised!

Following the repairs and upgrades the owners now receive and additional $240 in rent per week.

Thanks for the recommendation

“I would like to commend Linda for her recent outstanding efforts assisting my husband and I securing an extra $240/week rent on our investment property.


We thought with a coat of paint we may get an extra $100/week rent. With her eye for detail we were able to change some light fittings, bathroom accessories and kitchen handles to compliment what we already had to give an ultra modern look.


I would have no hesitation recommending Linda to maximise your return on investment.”
