We bought a house several years ago, and two years ago, we decided to do our renovation. It was always part of the plan, and we finally saved up enough money and picked out what we wanted, and away we went.

I decided to use By Urban for many reasons, actually. But probably most importantly was that a couple of people I know had already used them and got fantastic results, so that was the number one reason. But the other reasons are there; they’re good South Australians just down the road from a business of mine, and I drive past them regularly. I wanted to give them a go because I’d heard so much about them, I’d seen them advertised, and I actually know the owners a little bit, Tammy and David Cox. And although Cox is a bit of a pain in the backside; he barracks for Port, I’ll be honest, Tammy is a really good lady, and she’s the brains behind the business, let me tell you that. So, if you’re going to go with By Urban, get in touch with Tammy.

You hear horror stories about how hard it is to do a renovation with a bathroom or a kitchen, but that wasn’t the case with By Urban. It was absolutely simple, really. It was really enjoyable; a lot of fun. And when you come into the showroom, you get a coffee made for you, or they’re cooking some lunch in their kitchen, so that takes the pain away. Plus, they know everything that’s up-to-date in the world of kitchens and bathrooms.

So, I’d had a bit of experience at the Port Lincoln hotel doing 111 bathrooms, so I knew what I was in for. But one of the great things about By Urban is all their trades are fantastic people. They’re real professionals. They get there on time when they say they’re going to be there, and I can’t say that for a lot of tradies. So, you can ask my wife; she found it a really, really enjoyable process. So, I can really recommend them.

There’s nothing better in life than having a house that you’re proud of and to invite all your family and friends around. And since we’ve done the renovation, we look for opportunities to invite people around for dinner or for drinks or for a coffee or just to catch up. We’re very proud of what we’ve done. It’s come up fantastically.

A lot of the suggestions that we got from the experienced people of By Urban made a real difference, whether you’re sitting at the kitchen bench or whether people are staying overnight and sharing in the beautiful bathrooms. We do get a lot of good comments about it, and we’re very proud of what we’ve achieved. And we’re very happy that we went with By Urban.
