Downsize without compromise!


The Client:

When Ms Samuels decided to downsize, she didn’t want to have to compromise on her style and love for being surrounded by beautiful things. Ms Samuels wanted a home that was low maintenance and wanted to make it her own, virtually putting her stamp on it while making it a haven for herself and her daughters. Ms Samuels loves to entertain and as with any home the kitchen and dining areas are the main hub for hosting dinner parties or even just a place to gather for meals at the bench with family and friends. The newly acquired townhouse in Como needed some work if it was going to tick all the boxes that Ms Samuels wanted for her new home. But Ms Samuels had a vision and saw a timely ad on her facebook page for Kitchen Renovations by Select Solutions Tiles Bathrooms Kitchens. A single enquiry message was sent and 2 days later Ms Samuels was in our Cannington showroom liaising with Mary & Alana getting inspired and excited about all the possibilities and design ideas for her new home. “Select Solution’s advertisement came up on my Facebook and my gut feeling was to make an appointment to see them and get advice – then once I walked into the showroom and saw the selection of stock and how friendly and professional the staff is that was it for me – they all have soooo much patience and not once did I feel that any question or hesitation of choice was an annoyance to them – they all guided me thru step by step – also they are still there for me today in there after sales service – I had so much fun wish I could do it again” quoted by Sharman Samuels.

The Challenge:

The original kitchen was small, dark and cut off from the rest of the home.

Sharman wanted to open it up onto the dining area and because the laundry and guest toilet were set off from the kitchen, Sharman wanted these rooms to all flow and complement each other.

The upstairs bathroom and toilet were dated and dark. The toilet had some unsightly brick work to disguise the toilet plumbing.

The Solution:

Tim scheduled a date to go out and visit with Sharman to further discuss the plans and visions Ms Samuels had for her home and together they came up with some insightful and exciting design options. Liaising with the team, Sharman made all the selections for her new kitchen, laundry, bathroom, toilets and floor tiles from our extensive ranges of tiles, tapware, sinks, surfaces and finishes. The kitchen – the builder knocked out an opening in the wall between the kitchen and the dining room allowing for a full breakfast bar to be installed. We added a bulkhead to the kitchen to give the opulent look.

A ceasarstone benchtop in the kitchen finished off the look – Caesarstone “ocean foam” 40ml. The same colour ceasarstone benchtop was selected for the laundry in the 20ml. Kitchen & Laundry,WC – we custom built white gloss lacquer cabinetry in both rooms.

Sharman chose the Assi D’Alpe Badia 200×905 ‘wood look’ tile for the kitchen, laundry & WC floors and continued the stone look with Downtown Ecru 600×600 for the splashbacks. BATHROOM & WC (upstairs) tiled floor to ceiling in beautiful natural stone looking tile in larger format (Pietra Tiburtina Bianco 300×600 for floor and walls) and a complete feature wall N.S. Pietra Di Lecce Murretto 300×600.

A ceasarstone benchtop in “shimmer” was selected for the bathroom in 20ml custom built vanity and matching mirror cabinets. Sharman continued the square look of tapware and accessories. The Assi D’Alpe Badia 200×905 ‘wood look’ tile was also used in living area and entrance floor to achieve a flow on effect and warm & natural look to her new home.

In Conclusion:

As the before and after photos show, this home renovation was a dream come true for Ms Samuels and delight for The Select Solutions Team. This stunning transformation has resulted in a new home for the Samuels Clan that is modern and spacious and ultimately ‘ticked all the boxes’ that they required for their new family home.


Just wanted to say a big thank you to the team at select solutions, they made it so much fun to renovate my house and were always there for support and a smile, and as for what to select was spoilt for choice in their showroom. Thank you again, Regards Sharman
