Plan, Plan, Plan
So how do you avoid unexpected surprises, ensure your family loves your new renovation, and add value to your house? Successful renovations all have one thing in common, a plan. In order to have a good plan, you need to understand the process and all the steps involved in a quality well managed renovation project.
Understanding your Needs
Take the time to observe how you currently use your home. List the things you like, and the things you like to change or improve. This should be relatively easy if you’ve been living in the same house for a while, and if you really dislike some areas.
Need to Have Vs Nice to Have
There’s no disguising a home in serious need of renovations. Awful tiles, mold damage, terrible use of space, funky laminex and wallpaper that looks like it was chosen by a blind disco freak. All standard fare in homes across the Gold Coast.
Now that you have a good understanding of your needs it’s time to create a list of “need to have” vs. “nice to have”. Creating this list will make budgeting a lot easier. The need to have items should be focused on functional issues. An example could be adding a new ensuite to a one bathroom home, or an open plan kitchen so mum can watch the kids doing their homework. A nice to have could be a double vanity and full height tiles in the bathroom.
Setting your Renovation Budget
We ask you about your budget before we start the design and feasibility process, which ultimately saves you time and disappointment. It’s now time for the million dollar question. How much should you spend and what does a quality renovation actually cost? The simple answer is that it depends a lot on your goals and the choices you make. Now that’s obviously not super helpful. – so click here to see my price guide.
