Renovating a Queenslander: The Most Common Mistakes


Create your perfect home design when renovating a Queenslander by considering the work from every angle. Queenslander properties are an Australian favourite, known for their character, style and functionality. If done right, renovating these beautiful homes will increase the value of your property and provide setting for your ideal lifestyle. Novice renovators are prone to making a few common mistakes, but these can be easily avoided by considering the property’s structural integrity, your budget, the local climate, your intended lifestyle and the applicable building regulations.

Mistake #1: Not Maximising The Space

First time renovators can fall into the trap of not using the ample space in a Queenslander effectively. All Queenslanders are raised off the ground, which provides an opportunity to build underneath the main house and create a multi-level design.

Solution: Build Underneath

Check the ceiling height of the lower floor and see if a conversion will be possible under the state’s building regulations. The Building Code of Australia mandates that habitable rooms such as bedrooms and living rooms need to have a ceiling height of 2.4m or taller. The height for a kitchen or laundry needs to be at least 2.1m. If your Queenslander doesn’t meet this requirement you may be able to restump the home and lift the height of the whole structure.

Mistake #2: Neglecting Indoor/Outdoor Opportunities

Building underneath your Queenslander is a great way to combat problems with a disjointed indoor and outdoor home design. If you need to grab something from the garden or spend time outdoors, usually in a Queenslander you would need to head downstairs every time.

Solution: Living Areas Downstairs

If you were to renovate a new dining area, living room or kitchen on the lower floor you immediately maximise the flow of the design, have easier access to the backyard and a more connected feel within your home. Some Queenslanders will not have high enough ceilings in the lower level. If it’s not within budget to restump the structure for extra height, another way to improve indoor/outdoor cohesion is by adding a pavilion extension to use as an outdoor entertaining space.

Mistake #3: Ignoring The Local Climate

First time renovators can fall into the trap of planning their home makeover with disregard to the local climate. The traditionally Queensland home can be found throughout Australia, but its lightweight, raised design is optimised for the warm northern climate. The home design releases heat quickly and needs to be well-insulated when built in other parts of Australia. However, for renovating your Noosaville home, you will need to consider the coastal climate and humidity aspects.

Solution: Great Home Insulation

Even if your home already has insulation it might need replacing or rehabilitating. Otherwise, you can end up spending a fortune on heating every year as the warmth escapes and your heater works overtime. In winter you don’t want cold air coming in through the leaks of your home.Consult a home energy professional, consider your climate and build accordingly.

Mistake #4: Working Against Good Lighting

Older Queenslanders are sometimes built without consideration of how the sunlight falls on and within the home. The traditional design also includes ‘stacked’ rooms, resulting in central areas with poor lighting compared to the rooms on the sides of the house.

Solution: Design For The Best Lighting

Avoid gloomy lighting by opening up the interior spaces and allowing for more natural light to get in. Install skylights where possible and restructure the room layout to get the most out of the natural light. Professional renovators recommend positioning the living room, dining room, kitchen, and the backyard in the north or north-eastern part of the house because this is where the sun will shine most brightly in summer. Adding a veranda will reduce the amount of heat coming into your home in the hot summer months.

What To Remember

Avoid the most common mistakes first-time renovators make in their Queenslanders. Make sure you weigh up the benefits of converting the area underneath the house, think about the cohesion between indoor and outdoor spaces, design for the climate you live in and use natural lighting effectively. Take care of all the above-mentioned aspects and enhance the décor of your Noosaville home.
