As unit 15 underwent renovation, high contrast dark flooring was installed along with the bricks and walls painted white. Fresh, modern white kitchen cabinets contrasted with a new dark stone bench top with white splash back. The renovation also included stylish black and white, high contrast powerpoints.
Rounding out the overhaul, a new stove top and oven were fitted complete with knobs which can be felt for ease of operation. For increased safety there are no longer any handles on the doors and drawers opting for shadow line fitouts instead. All cupboards are soft-closing.
The old bathroom was completely gutted. Dark floor tiles and contrasting white walls, white cabinet and dark stone cabinet top was installed. The bathroom has been
modified to be wheelchair friendly. Cabinet has self-closing drawers with no handles, which are often a hazard to those with No or Low Vision.
This unit had asbestos in the kitchen and bathroom which was safely removed. The outdated lino in the kitchen and dining area was removed. Ceiling fans and all standard lighting were removed as was the carpet removed from living area.
Flooring is now dark hard wearing rubber tiles, guaranteed for 15 years. Tiles can be replaced individually as required for ease of maintenance and will extend longevity. All walls, including the brick wall have been painted off-white to provide contrast with dark floor.
New ceiling fans were installed and lighting throughout the unit is now LED and set to offer high brightness and an even spread of light.
Carpet was removed from the bedroom and replaced with hard wearing dark floor tiles. The bedroom wall was painted white. Note also the high
brightness and even spread of LED lighting.
