Reno Rumble’s Final Reveal; Were the Home Owners Happy?

Reno Rumble has drawn to a close and the obvious question is… will there be a season two? I’m going to get on top of that ASAP and try to find out how you can enter your home for consideration (loads of you have been asking me this). That is, if there’s a season two at all.

The final reveals were pretty dreamy, don’t you think? Both of the Freedom Kitchens were subdued in colour but definitely sported different styles, to cater to each home owner’s individual needs. I really liked both of them and thought that the laundries were equally impressive.

Speaking of the home owners, were they happy with their spaces once the blue and red teams had completed the renos? Let’s talk to them and find out!

Carly and Leighton were put to the test in their final week, doing over Lisa’s retro kitchen. It sported bright orange cupboards before the transformation, with little room to move and very little light entering the space.

“We wanted to open it up more and make it an entertaining area where we could invite our family and friends (more than two people!),” Lisa says. “I wanted it to feel bigger than what it was, and brighter”.

Lisa on her new kitchen’s colour scheme and style…

“Our kitchen now has a bright feel, using light Caeasarstone marble-look benchtops. It is very modern and has high tech appliances, some we are still learning to operate! It has a very classing and hip feel, perfect for entertaining”.

What she loves most about the new space…

“I love the colour scheme; very modern and bright. I [also] love the size of my kitchen, it has plenty of bench space for food preparation, but it also incorporates a versatile dining space with bench chairs at the ends. I love the high tech appliances – already our cooking has improved”.

How the transformation has changed her life…

“I actually feel comfortable spending time in my kitchen, and having guests around to entertain. We can now have a large group over and there is plenty of space for them to sit”.

Home owner Nicole dreamt of a new kitchen that featured an open-plan layout, so that the family could integrate it into their nearby dining room. What Ayden and Jess needed to take into account, too, was that Nicole wanted to keep the heritage vibe that the rest of her home had.

Nicole on the new colour scheme and style…

“We requested that our kitchen was in keeping with the style – contemporary classic with a touch of plantation,” she says. “The kitchen is now open plan and connects with the living area, and complements the Victorian features of our home beautifully”.

What she loves most about the new kitchen…

“I love the finishes, the Caesarstone benchtops are easy to clean and hard wearing. They look elegant all the time. The open plan design… integrates so well with the dining area, and through the servery window to the deck/outdoor room means we can now seat 12 people for dinner across two connected areas with ease”.

How the Freedom Kitchen has changed her life…

“In our old kitchen we had slowly reduced our entertaining due to the limitations of our kitchen and dining areas, but we have already started to invite friends over again and cooking for many is a breeze”.
