Upgrade your family home with modern luxury


Create a new, modern atmosphere in the home where you already hold your family memories with a new extension, a refitted kitchen or bathroom, or a tastefully aesthetically-consistent open space. We work with clients for any degree of renovation, from a full, ground up rebuild, to a small fit out, and we treat every project respectfully and professionally.

Find modern comfort with your familiar design

Get started

We know just how deep the roots go in our local communities, so when we perform the exciting renovations that our clients desire, we’re aware of how important it is to create a familiar space.

We work custom to your needs and are more than happy to consult with you on your options long before you’re ready to proceed. Local suppliers, designers and trades are all at hand for you to find the very best in modern comfort, yet our all-local team are also there to find and match the aesthetic you desire and reveal the intent of your original home.

Working with Drinkrow as your renovators, you’ll be kept in close contact and always updated and in the loop on any decision, problem, and solution. As we progress through your renovation, we stick to a carefully planned timeline, and aim to have the least disruption on your family life - so you can get back to the day-to-day, and upgrade your lifestyle.

Frequently asked questions

How long does it take to renovate my house?

Renovations can take anywhere from a few weeks of planning, building, inspection, and finishing, to several months of the same process. It all depends on the size of your scope. Is it just a kitchen refit? We can manage that quite quickly, but the larger the project, the longer the time we need to allow.

What we can promise, is that we take great pride in our previous project management work, and that we always aim to have a minimal impact on your life during your exciting renovation.

Will the new elements of our home feel “out of place”?

Not at all, we’re professionals at renovating homes in the Hawkes Bay region, and we work with designers and sub-contractors who all live in the area, and are equally familiar with the range of aesthetic styles here.

Who will be working in my home?

We understand that your investment into your family home is incredibly important to you, and so you very much care about who is involved in your renovation. We work with trusted local contractors, suppliers, and sub-trades whom we personally vet and keep a good relationship with, so you’ll feel confident that your renovation will be successfully completed, and your valuables will be safe.

I’m not sure if we need a renovation, can you consult with us?

Absolutely. We’re more than happy to sit down and talk through your options for a new renovation, with newer, modern lifestyle comforts and tasteful, aesthetically matching design. We always offer no-obligation consultations, and we’re happy to answer any questions you may have.
