Sydney's Award Winning Kitchen Designers & Renovators
MAKING RENOVATIONS EFFORTLESS Improva, formerly Blakes Of Sydney, are the experts you need by your side for your renovation or architecturally designed joinery project. We’re a Sydney-based team of renovation brokers with more than three decades of renovating experience. If you’re an individual who doesn’t know where to start with your renovation or you’re a business experiencing challenges with your existing joinery suppliers and want a one-stop shop, from tendering through to joinery management, Improva can help. From the time we’ve spent working in the industry, we’ve seen first-hand what works well, what doesn’t, and the many daunting challenges clients can face when they decide to renovate. This experience has helped us create a brokering process that works, and has given us the industry connections guaranteed to make your renovation easier. You may never have renovated before and you just don’t have the time, experience or desire to take it on alone. Or, this might be your second or third time renovating, and you’re looking to take a different and easier approach. Our team shares the goal of making renovations easier — no matter the size of the project. We’ll ensure you have the best experience during your renovation because we’ll connect you with the right team —builders, joiners, stone masons, or whatever other suppliers you need to expertly deliver your project. As renovation brokers, our business model is similar to that of a mortgage broker. A mortgage broker saves borrowers time and money by connecting them to the right lenders, then negotiating the rates and terms of the loan on their behalf. In a similar way, we can save you a significant amount of time by sourcing suppliers, analysing quotes and negotiating prices. We’ll also personally recommend a trusted dream team of suppliers to deliver your project. We’ll take the pressure off by sourcing quotes for you from our trusted network, analysing each one, and providing you with a thorough market snapshot via our comparison analysis. We’ll then make in-depth recommendations and detail costs, inclusions and exclusions. Like other types of brokers, we don’t charge you upfront for our service. We get paid by the suppliers you choose because we’ve matched you with the perfect people to work on your renovation. We don’t get paid unless we do our job extremely well by connecting you with amazing suppliers that you are confident to engage.
