Designtank understands Queensland homes and households. Our interior design service draws on principles of good design as well as deep knowledge of Brisbane lifestyles.
Designtank are specialists at kitchen and bathroom renovations. Sometimes getting these rooms right is all it takes to refresh a whole house. Utilising intelligent space-planning, you can find space you didn’t know you had, unlock your home’s potential and fit it seamlessly around your family’s needs.
We can work within a larger renovation project to get these oh so important rooms right. Our job is to give you that perfect balance between personal taste and contemporary living whilst preserving the essence of the existing building.
Our home renovation projects elevate your lifestyle. New floorplans can help you find more space than you thought possible; variable lighting hands you control of mood and energy use alike. Interior drafting services mean that you don’t have to find cabinetry that fits your house and family, we build it to your exact space and specs.
We’ve been renovating Queenslanders for years. We understand that floors are never level and ceiling heights vary. We know that multiple rounds of renovations can complicate the floor plan, with old verandas built in and limitations from the existing plumbing and partitions. We love the challenge of working with older homes. In fact, finding ways to create spaces for modern living without compromising a building’s history is a big part of what we do here.
We have projects in urban spaces in South Brisbane and river view apartments in the inner suburbs of New Farm, Teneriffe and Hamilton on up to Brisbane North and increasingly sought-after leafy residential suburbs like Kedron. Designtank can work with you to create a space that sits comfortably in its surroundings. Making the most of views, bringing in light and air and finding more space than you ever thought possible, whilst designing for the complexities of our varied weather and period homes.
Designtank creates a personalised design package, tailored specifically for your project, with a detailed Scope of Work and fee schedule.
It’s never too late to call us. For projects that have already started, we can inject some much-needed momentum and structure.
Some kind words from clients
Feeling our bathroom layout could be better, but not sure what to do, we called in Estelle to give us some expert advice. Estelle listened to our needs and promptly came up with the most sensible solution for our awkwardly shaped family bathroom. Estelle quickly identified our style and presented a selection of tiling, fittings and finishes that we loved. She was consultative throughout the whole process and encouraged us to make choices we would never have had the confidence to make without her. The result is a WOW factor bathroom that reflects our family, is practical and beautiful. Estelle was always organised, professional, good humoured and efficient. Estelle took all the stress out of renovating our bathroom and her advice ensured we dodged making potentially expensive mistakes.

We have just finished renovating the whole of upstairs in our family Queenslander which included the living area, deck, kitchen, study, stairs and landing. My wife and I wanted someone who could help us design the space and manage the project from start to finish. Estelle fit the bill perfectly. She has the technical skills to draw all the kitchen cabinetry and custom built fitted furniture, which included a beautifully made walnut table, chairs and shelving. She has a good eye for colours and soft furnishings and was great at sourcing some lovely pieces for us which included lighting, sofas, curtains and rugs. She also helped choose and source all the new kitchen appliances. Estelle has re-imagined the space for us which included moving a door, moving a window, building wall to wall bookshelves, a built in outdoor barbi and completely reconfiguring the kitchen. We love the result.
A much better use of space that looks beautiful. Very happy. Thankyou Estelle
Estelle was first recommended to me when I urgently needed plans drawn up for my ensuite renovation. She was very obliging and professional and we continued to work together to upgrade my whole apartment. Estelle’s willingness to consider her client’s lifestyle needs whilst providing guiding advice and then excellent, efficient service sets her apart. Thank-you Estelle, I’m delighted with the result.
We recently discovered Estelle Cameron of Designtank when we needed to update our ensuite and power room. Estelle was great to work with and came up with some fantastic suggestions and design concepts but was also very willing to listen to our ideas and incorporate them into the final design. She also project managed the job very well for us and ensured the whole project ran on time and as smoothly as possible. We are extremely happy with the end result and would have no hesitation in recommending Estelle and Designtank.
I hired Designtank to renovate a small Queenslander cottage I own in Brisbane and which I have rented out for some years. As the last tenant had been there for 10 years, it required some major work. I live interstate and was also overseas during much of this project. Estelle from Designtank provided colour recommendations, renovation recommendations, quotes, builder, recommended and supplied updated fittings, oversighted the renovations themselves, and kept me informed at all stages. Her attention to detail was exceptional, her taste excellent and costs reasonable.
I would highly recommend her.
My experience with Designtank was a positive one. Estelle managed to change my new unit from an all white, clinical space to an interesting, warm inviting home while working with the pieces I wanted to keep. She was a pleasure to deal with and her extensive knowledge and access to great tradesmen made everything go smoothly. I would recommend Designtank to anyone looking for a true professional.
