My experience with Lia and her design team has been outstanding. New to renovation, and living overseas, I approached the idea of work on my house with some anxiety. The team at Refresh Renovations talked me through every step - making sure I was comfortable with the process. They spent the time to find out exactly what I envisioned the end result looking like. Their patience, creativity, clarity and genuine personal investment in the process has made the experience wholly enjoyable. Thank you!


The completely non-stressful way to do renovations. Get Refresh! Lia and her team did a great job on our ensuite - just what I wanted. This is the second time I have used Refresh - the first time involved a cost-effective solution to our garage and parking issues. It is fantastic. Refresh listens and comes up with a solution based on the customer's needs and budget. Would highly recommend.

Great communication, always willing to work with you and make time when needed. Our renovations were completed within expected time and very high quality. Steve and team thank you.


Throughout the whole project I felt listened to, supported to and communication was second to none. As this was the first renovation I had ever done I needed a bit of guidance and this was given freely. Lots of options given especially when additional work needed to be done. Very professional team. Thanks Mark and the team for the job well done!

Judith Urry

The service received was great. Steve and the team listening to your needs and work alongside you to ensure quality. Recommend their personal friendly approach.

Conny Huaki

Refresh renovated two of my bathrooms. I highly recommend Jeff and his team for anyone who is looking at renovation and is anxious about project management, communication and work quality. I found Refresh’s process from start to finish transparent and professional.

We recently engaged Dave Georgetti and his team from Refresh Remuera to undertake a total house renovation. Thoroughly professional, yet personable. We are very pleased with the result - enjoying our new home in time for the summer break. The essential value-add that Dave/Refresh provide is to guide you through the myriad of tradespeople, suppliers and decision making. All whilst keeping up the relentless momentum against a detailed project plan and budget. We challenged Dave many times with decision changes mid-project and he handled it with flexible good cheer all the way through to completion. Do not underestimate how tough it is to do by yourself. Highly recommend you reach out to Dave.

Mark and I recently had our very dated and old bathroom renovated by Refresh Renovations and have been rewarded with a brilliant modern new bathroom. This was our first renovation project ever and Refresh made it easy and seamless from step one through to completion. From our consultant Janelle through to our wonderful project manager Megan, it has been a rewarding experience in what can be a very stressful time! We would especially like to thank Megan for her patience, unfailing enthusiasm and smiling face and all her help in dealing with any hiccups that came up (very few of them!) We would highly recommend Refresh Renovations and happily use them in the future.

I worked with Brian and his team to renovate my rental in Palmerston North. We completely renovated the interior of this property including a new Mitre 10 kitchen, paint, carpet, lino, washhouse, lights, curtains, carpet, clothesline, auto garage opener etc. Brian and his wife even helped clean the interior after renovation and ensured all the rubbish was taken away. No job too big or small was a problem they were extremely obliging and helpful as I live in the Hawkes Bay. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for future work.

We recently used Refresh Renovations Waikato and are delighted by the end result! The renovation included a totally new kitchen layout, some alterations to a bathroom, new flooring and having the whole house painted internally. Plus new lighting throughout the house. Steve, very ably assisted by Nadeene & Lee, carried out the renovation in a very professional way providing advice and guidance as well as managing the various tradesmen involved. An unforeseen difficulty was quickly overcome and the very tight timescale that we wanted was adhered to and the project was completed within that timescale and on budget. All tradesmen were excellent, particularly Pops the painter. Well done to all. i would have no hesitation recommending Refresh Renovations Waikato to anyone.

Alan Neville

Thanks to MJ and his team for the installation of our new cooker. We certainly had some hurdles to jump through - as you do with renno's but nothing was too much problem and the team were really great in working through towards a great install with wonderful crafts-people-ship. We love our new cooker installation! Thank you.

When I was undertaking a renovation in my apartment I decided to employ a renovation company, as the thought of independently sourcing and coordinating the number of different trades involved was a little daunting. I engaged Saleem Bhikoo from Refresh Renovations, as his company had done an amazing job renovating the kitchen and 2 bathrooms at my daughter"s place. I am very pleased that I made that decision. Saleem listened very well to everything I wanted and was able to take the project organisation and delivery off my hands. Throughout the renovation, he communicated well with me and everything went according to plan. The project delivered all that I was hoping for. The timeline was strictly adhered to, which kept disruption to a minimum. The work from all tradesmen was of a high standard and they did a great job of cleaning up throughout the process. Saleem was an excellent manager throughout and I would certainly recommend him and Refresh Renovations.

Refresh Renovations Waikato have managed a couple of projects for us now. Steve and Lee are very good to deal with: they are very professional and always responded quickly to our questions or inquiries. The whole team at Refresh Renovations Waikato are really friendly and down-to-earth and they definitely know their business!

Megan Bevan

Although we are ardent about doing our own renovations, this time our ages along with the complexity of a bathroom and civil engineering required for the driveway meant we needed someone to project manage the several skills required. This is new territory for us and we are quite particular about what we want done and perhaps how things should happen. Jim Gleeson has managed consultation, design and specification with depth of technical expertise along with excellent communications. He “listens to his clients” particularly well and offers sage advice when needed. At the end of this first phase of renovation, we are confident that the project is in very capable hands with him and his team at KKG Ltd. 

Gordon Mallinson

I was contemplating purchasing a property with works needing to be done. Refresh met me at the property and gave me excellent advice and rough and realistic costs of the work. I found his time and advice very valuable and I look forward to using them in the future.

Nick Base

I worked with Brian on a tricky situation with my roof. While it took time to work out the best way forward, we got the job done! I was very happy with the service and communication from Refresh. I can highly recommend them.

Jyoteeka Cummings

I've had two renovations done by Refresh. Both by Saleem in Auckland. One renovation was for my home and one for my business. Both went really well. They were well within the expected time frame and budget. Saleem managed everything really closely and was very good at maintaining regular communication. I also really like the app they use so you can see what's happening. Saleem managed any issues we had really quickly and there was minimal stress. Very happy with the quality of both jobs. 

Oliver Reeve

Awesome! We had a problem with our flooring, and Wayne went the extra mile to help out when the job was seen as problematic by other trades. He sought out and brought in an outside expert, and from there the flooring was repaired. A great team, did a great job - thanks.

Steve and Jen

We worked with JJ on a potential renovation and build project. We found JJ extremely helpful, providing advice above and beyond what we expected. Unfortunately, the project didn’t happen but we will definitely plan to work with JJ in the future.

Juliette Richards

Dom and Rebecca from Refresh Renovations did an outstanding job project managing our kitchen replacement. They helped with planning and design, had many great suggestions that added to the final look, organized an efficient team of tradies that actually turned up when they said they would and who all took great pride in their work. Rebecca and Dom were always easy to contact and, no matter how fussy we were, they greeted us with a smile and a “no problem” attitude. Cannot recommend these guys highly enough and will definitely use them again myself for future renovations.
