St. Andrews Cronulla

This was a full renovation of a 50s-style one-bedroom apartment, located in Cronulla. We transformed four areas, including the kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom. The location, by the beach, called for a light, bright and airy renovation.

“We found Adesso on Facebook after posting for help with our unit renovation. We were given plenty of recommendations and we chose three that sounded the best. After meeting Giovanni for the first time, we knew we had the builder for us!


Not only did they complete the job in just 4 weeks but they made practical suggestions along the way, which resulted in an even better renovation than we’d originally hoped for. 100% would use Adesso for our next renovation project.”

We started by removing the ageing carpets throughout the apartment. Having previously investigated what was under the carpet, we knew there was classic Cyprus pine timber flooring, so we set about retaining and restoring it to its former glory.


We removed all the kitchen cabinetry and readjusted the pipework to allow for the new kitchen sink. We removed the original fixtures and fittings from the bathroom and removed the wall and floor tiling. Our plumbers adjusted the pipes for the new location of the shower and washing machine. New waterproofing was applied throughout the bathroom, with matte white tiles laid in contrast with feature porcelain tiles.


An all-new frameless shower screen and fittings were installed, as well as a new toilet and basin with durable tapware. Finally, the new washing machine was put in place and a benchtop was built to increase practical usability.


In the main living space, we devised a new L-shaped kitchen, complete with a breakfast bar. This opens up the living area and gives it a much larger feel. We added a white subway-tiled splashback to the kitchen.


New lighting, fans and completely new switches were installed throughout the apartment. Finally, three coats of DULUX interior wash and wear paint was applied to the apartment and we completed the project by sanding and polishing the timber floors.
