Before and after: Morningside makeover

Neale Whitaker certainly made some clever changes to this house, with some fantastic results.

With a budget of $90,000, Neale definitely worked his magic on this Morningside home. While homeowners Rebecca and Nick had already had a crack at renovating their home, the results weren't ideal.

"When we bought this place we thought we’d become these awesome renovators, but it’s a lot harder than you think. But I think we’ve done a pretty good job so far," Rebecca says.

Luckily, Neale knew just what to do to make their little Queenslander a haven for their growing family.

Neale started by making some clever changes to the floorplan. The small kitchen, bathroom and living space were all a problem.

Starting in the kitchen, Neale knocked down the adjoining wall and moved the appliances to create space for an island bench. He extended the bathroom to be bigger and made the third bedroom into a multifunctioning space.

Check out the full renovation in the pictures below.
