People often renovate a house to make it feel more like a home. Through renovations you can create a stunning home and add value to it. In this blog we are going to discuss our tips for renovating a house.
Effective planning is key to any renovation or build phase. You need to focus on the bigger picture and overall goals as well as the smaller parts. Assessing your requirements and knowing everything you need to do allows the process to be a lot smoother. Create a list of ‘must haves’ and ‘nice to haves’ as this will allow you to see what your budget allows for.
Work out your timeline and work towards a date. We know that deadlines can’t always be met due to suppliers and other elements of the build being delayed. However, having a date for you and your builders to work towards will help you to visualise the process.
It is so important to look at furnishings you can buy during the renovation stage. When you are on-site you may think that a certain piece of furniture wouldn’t work well where it was originally going to be placed. By researching in advance, you know you can shop online for items throughout the whole renovation stage and you may even be able to buy some items in the sale.
Think Carefully About Painting
Did you know that the colour you paint a room can affect the lighting? Dark colours can often make a room too dark and no lighting solution would be able to make the room lighter again. It is important to think about colours and what is going to help enhance the room before you actually paint it.
