The extensive use of media and information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the household is building a new normality, where the use of technology is imperceptible to its users. Within this context, home renovation can be examined as a mediatised practice, which suggests the interactive transformation of practices which takes place with and through media. Our chapter is based on an interdisciplinary Australian study of 13 home renovations and their media practices. In this chapter, we argue that home renovation activities have moved into the digital realm. Furthermore, we emphasise that these mediatised home renovation practices contribute to the development of new mediatised domains that could assist in the transition and domestication of low-carbon practices and technologies.
