Remodelling a home is most often an exciting project that will breathe life into your household. It does however come with a number of logistical challenges as the disruption takes hold. As with all projects, the key is in the planning.
In this blog post we share a few tips on how to effectively plan your home renovation to make it as stress-free as possible.
Tips to planning a home renovation
Section the project
To begin, divide the project up into parts so that it does not become one daunting project. Start with one area at a time, prioritising those that are most in use. That way, you can tick those off the list first so that you can start to use them if you chose to remain in your home during the renovation.
Work inside out
If you are hiring professionals to do structural or more technical changes, you’ll note that they usually start to work from the inside out. If you are doing a lot of it yourself, start inside the walls with plumbing and electrical and then move outward until you get to the more cosmetic changes, like paint and wallpaper.
Leave it to the professionals when needed
If the changes you are planning to make are more technical or advanced, just remember you have to live in this space until it is completed. If you are choosing to stay at home while renovating, this means that you will need to live in a space of disruption. Hiring a professional team could mean that the renovation is done quicker and you can get your home back to normal.
Make space for the renovation
During a renovation there is a lot of dust and materials that end up lying around as the project goes through the various phases. To avoid damage to your household items, store them self storage while the work is completed. Not only will it keep those items protected, but it will also allow for a faster project as the contractors will have an empty space to work with.
