I have used Nu-Look for three renovations to my house over a period of twelve years. Every time I have been delighted with the end result but more importantly, by the way in which the reno has been handled by Matt and his team. The approach has been unhurried and very personalised with fine attention to every small detail so the end result has been to my complete satisfaction. Matt's personalised approach made me feel like I was the most important person in Canberra renovating and that my decisions were of the utmost significance to him in his planning, drafting and execution of the work. The standard of workmanship has been excellent and once again, the attention to small details has been exemplary. Additionally, Fiona's management of documentation, accounts and queries were timely and appropriate which made my life a lot easier during what can be a very stressful time.
I wanted to pass on my thanks for my new bookcase. I am very happy with the final result and the overall look. I also wanted to let you know how impressed I was with Arthur and Luke. I have no idea about building etc but I felt they really took the time to complete a quality job. They were really friendly and professional and nothing was too much trouble for them. Thanks again and please pass on my appreciation to Arthur & Luke for their hard work!
A work colleague recommended Nu-Look Renovations to us in 2009 and Matt and his team renovated our laundry and ensuite bathroom. Not a day has passed since when we haven't appreciated the quality of design and workmanship that went into those renovations. When our daughter recently bought a flat with a very "tired" bathroom we had no hesitation in again contacting Nu-Look for advice and a quote. Matt has a lot of experience renovating in Canberra and his clever design proposal helped us avoid some seriously expensive and unnecessary steps. For example, re-enameling the bath in-situ saved a lot of time and mess and avoided big potential plumbing dramas in the 30 year old block of flats. The finished bathroom looks fantastic and I will have no hesitation again contacting Nu-Look for our next renovation project.
Matt, Fiona and the team were a pleasure to work with, they did a wonderful job which we were delighted with the end result. They also put down our new bamboo floor – which attracts as many positive comments as the kitchen. The floor and the kitchen both have a “wow” factor when friends see it for the first time after what has been there for nearly 40 years.
We couldn't be happier with our new kitchen. From the start, we were impressed with Matt's vision for our renovation. He and his team took our ideas, and made them reality. His quote was competitive and he was always straight with us, especially when we wanted to make changes during the process. He always gave us good advice, and made sure that we knew what we could expect. Matt and his team were professional, and took great care to understand what we wanted, and to deliver it. They take great pride in their work, and have a lot to be proud of. We recommend them highly.
We are thrilled with our newly renovated ensuite. Matt and his team were fantastic to deal with. Matt took us through the entire process, from planning to clean-up. He organised every detail, with speed and consideration. He listened to our ideas, provided advice and assisted us in sourcing quality materials. Matt was always contactable and communicated with us clearly and frequently. We were very impressed with his team - all of whom were skilled, courteous and punctual. Even when we chose to alter original plans, Matt was able to accommodate the changes and suggest alternatives from which we could choose. We have no hesitation in recommending Nu-Look's services to others and would certainly work with them again for our future renovation projects.
Nu-Look renovated our entrance area, open plan kitchen, family room and dining area and converted the open plan lounge/ formal dining area into separate lounge and media room. Nu-Look guided us through the process end-to-end and provided great advice regarding the design and finish and also provided useful contacts for related renovation work, such as blinds. The acid test for me was how Nu-Look managed the unforeseen problems that occur in many renovation projects and the Team's commitment to a quality finish and a happy customer, coupled with their excellent communication, resulted in prompt and fully satisfactory outcomes. We are delighted with the finished renovation, which has surpassed our expectations, and I would highly recommend Nu-Look Renovations.
Without reservation I would recommend Nu-Look Renovations to anyone contemplating bathroom and kitchen renovations. Highly professional, superb craftsmanship and an ability to translate your "wish list" into a reality which actually exceeds your expectations. All of this is underpinned by excellent design making the most of, in my case, a very small home. I had a new bathroom, kitchen, laundry and toilet delivered on time and on budget - but better than that, during the whole process, the team impressed me with their incredible work ethic, their friendliness and the fact that at the end of each work day, they ensured all work areas were as clean and tidy as possible (noting that I remained in the house during the whole renovation!). A process I was dreading, that is an extensive renovation, turned out to be a very positive experience.
We recently had our laundry, toilet and bathroom renovated by Nu-Look Renovations. Due to the small spaces we had to work with, we were concerned about the feasibility of the whole project! Matt was consistently helpful and friendly and provided sound advice when we were making decisions. We were kept up to date throughout the whole process, and were allowed plenty of scope and input into the design. The end result was not only very affordable, it has changed the tone of the house for the better! We would very much recommend Nu-Look Renovations to anyone looking to get their bathroom renovated.
For us, the biggest obstacle to doing a renovation was time – we both work fulltime in busy jobs, and we have two teenage daughters. The time involved in potentially having to engage and manage a variety of tradespersons was something we just didn’t think we could manage. When we first solicited quotes in October 2013, we didn’t think we stood any chance of having all the work completed in time for Christmas, but Matt and the team at Nu-Look Renovations managed to deliver two new bathrooms and a full facelift to our laundry and kitchen, in less than six working weeks! Talking to Matt the first time set our mind at ease. Matt not only gave us realistic assessments of the costs and time required to achieve our desired renovations (two bathrooms completely stripped and refitted, and a thorough kitchen and laundry facelift), but also gave great advice on what would work best in our existing space and style of home. For us, nothing was more reassuring than working with a local project manager who looked after every aspect of the job and kept us informed every step of the way. The team Nu-Look sends to undertake the work are all professional, cheerful, timely and communicative. We would highly recommend anyone looking at home renovations get a quote from Nu-Look. Nu-Look provide access to exactly the same range of fixtures, fittings and quality finishes as many of the larger franchised companies, but with the advantage of extremely competitive pricing (no hidden costs!), fast turnaround, and personalised service. One call, one point of contact throughout, no fuss, and a great looking renovation which came in well within budget. What more could we have asked for?
I am thrilled with the work done by Nu-Look Renovations. Matt’s quote was done quickly and it showed that he had listened to my needs, giving me a base line quote with priced options that I was considering. The quote was very competitive, but I think it was the time Matt put into coming to my home and speaking to me about my needs prior to putting the quote together that won him the work. The work crew Matt has put together are terrific – a pleasure to have them in my home. They turned up when they said they would, they worked hard and they were incredibly friendly. I was gobsmacked to see them, after a long day’s work, haul in a vacuum cleaner when they cleaned up so that my home did not look like a work-site overnight. The kitchen and laundry renovation was done quickly with minimal disruption to myself and my son – they even made sure that my crazy puppy did not escape during the work! Matt helped me in going about deciding things, steered me away from some awful decisions I nearly made and made wonderful suggestions in terms of the aesthetics and practicalities of my new kitchen and laundry. I would not hesitate in recommending Nu-Look Renovations to anyone.
We had looked at all our options and decided that we wanted to stay in our local area –it seemed renovating was our only solution. After navigating our way through the many "experts" it was a welcome relief to meet Matt and the team at Nu-Look who were always available, knowledgeable and interested to discuss with us our various requirements. I had heard many "horror stories" from family and friends, but can honestly say that dealing with Nu-Look was a rewarding and pleasant experience. We are beyond happy with the results and the workmanship is truly first class. I would not hesitate to recommend Matt and his team - indeed I already have.
We wanted to renovate our main bathroom, ensuite and toilet. After getting 5 quotes we settled on Nu-Look Renovations to do the work. We chose Nu-Look due to the competitive pricing and the ideas that Matt put forward to us. He suggested changing the positioning of the bath in the bathroom and repositioning the toilet in the ensuite to give us more room and practicable use. Matt agreed to meet us one Saturday morning in Fyshwick to give us some ideas and assist choosing fittings, toilets, vanities etc. This was a massive help. It also saved us money. The renovation work was done on time with a minimum of fuss. All tradesman were polite and cleaned everything up after each day’s work. All work was done to an extremely high standard. We would have no hesitation in recommending Nu-Look Renovations to anyone wanting to renovate bathrooms etc. in their house.
Matt and his team made our bathroom renovation an easy experience! Nu-Look ensured that we got the bathroom we wanted, by including us in every decision along the way. They provided us with assistance and advice on every aspect such as design, layout and functionality. Their relaxed approach and high quality workmanship made them a great team to work with. We are thrilled with our new bathrooms and definitely recommend Nu-Look Renovations!
Matt and his team did a wonderful job creating a modern style kitchen, bathroom and laundry. Matt helped us choose the kitchen, bathroom and laundry fittings and gave us some good ideas on the style and layout of these rooms. The quote was well done and easy to understand. The renovation was completed within a short time and all went smoothly. We are very happy with the renovation and would have no hesitation in recommending Nu-Look Renovations in future.
I recently purchased an ageing townhouse, sorely in need of a new kitchen and living area. The task was complex and a DIY renovation had considerable scope for error. I was looking for a builder who would provide quality workmanship, a single point of contact for all trades and a realistic budget. I did not want someone who would keep me hanging, or promise a lot and then did not deliver. Nu-Look Renovations came strongly recommended by friends who had used them previously and were impressed with the results. Matt and his team have been courteous and communicative from my initial approach. Matt has been happy to work with me from conceptualisation to completion, and step me through what is possible and what is not. I found Matt approachable and easy to contact and I was happy that I only needed to go to one point of contact to get an answer and have the job delivered. After meeting Matt and discussing a range of plans, I was confident that he would take responsibility for delivering the renovations to my satisfaction. My confidence was not misplaced. I was very pleased by the way that Matt stepped me through options, costs and timeframes, and discussed my expectations.There were no unexpected costs and Matt was careful to alert me to any changes that I wanted that would alter the cost. I was also impressed by Matt’s attention to detail, his strong oversight of his team and his desire to ensure that his team performed to expectations. I was very happy with Matt’s consultative approach of working with me to realise the vision that I had for my kitchen. I would strongly recommend Nu-Look Renovations
Renovating an investment unit can be a challenge as you want to get a good job done but can’t afford to have the unit vacant for too long. I can highly recommend Nu-Look Renovations for a task like this. Right from the start Matt was very helpful and always did what he said he was going to do at the time he said he would. Even when things go wrong (as they inevitably do) Matt found ways to fix them in a timely manner. He came and quoted when he said he would, he went with us to select the tiles and fittings for the bathrooms and he organised all the contractors to turn up when they needed to. His computer generated diagrams helped us envisage what the new kitchen would look like and how we could maximise the use of the space available. His workmen took great care in the unit, which we had just had painted and they cleaned up after they had finished. The quality of the work done was excellent and our new tenant is very happy with the finished job (as are we).Matt was competitively priced but more importantly for us, he did not mess us around and did a first rate job on the renovation of the kitchen and two bathrooms.
I had no idea where to start when it came to renovating my bathrooms and laundry. Once Matt arrived it all became so easy as he knew what would work and was far better at visualizing it than me. The main bathroom was my headache, it was too small to achieve what I wanted but Matt came up with some great ideas that I am really happy with...I would never have thought of turning my linen cupboard into a shower! I now have a laundry that has heaps of storage, is very functional and looks great instead of the ugly waste of space that had been there and bathrooms that look wonderful with the best shower I have ever had...guests rave about the shower. Nu-Look then went on to replace my 2 balconies and front windows that were all totally rotten and warped. My neighbours couldn’t stop talking about how great they look. Matt listens to what you want, discusses the options and makes his own suggestions until a plan that works has been created. His team then turns up when they say they will, do excellent work and clean everything up afterwards. I highly recommend Nu-Look.
Matt and his team carried out a major renovation for us. The quote was very reasonable and the quality of the work was impeccable. In just a few weeks we got a superb kitchen/ family room, two beautiful bathrooms and a fantastic laundry. We couldn’t be happier and were very grateful for all the assistance Matt gave us in the planning of the renovation. His advice was invaluable and prevented us making some silly, and expensive, mistakes.
