Planning to renovate your home is a monumental task, with many hidden steps and problems that you may not have tho8ght of. Whether it is a complete home do-over, or just one room design change, you should always make a timed plan of your renovation and prepare yourself with these 4 tips!

Here are our 4 Things You Should Know Before Renovating Your Home:

1. Determine your budget and stick to it

Sounds obvious, right? But many individuals start design and home maintenance projects within having a set budget in mind which can create problems down the line. Before buying the first can of paint even, set yourself a strict budget and plan how much of that budget you will designate to building, decorating, appliances etc.

2. Know where to focus your time and money

Once you have a budget in mind, you need to figure out which areas of your house you are reworking and if more than one, in what order. Think about what makes the most sense practically. For example, think about ways you can renovate your kitchen whilst still having access to basic appliances such as your fridge and oven during this time.

3. Get expert opinions when necessary

DIY projects can be an amazing way to save money on home designs and maintenance, but often will double the renovation time. Trickier building work and installations, especially in kitchens and bathrooms should always be consulted with by a professional to ensure you haven’t missed anything vital.

4. Be realistic

There are other considerations that must be thought of before starting any realistic project. Does your renovation require planning permission? Do you have the space in your home to create the vision you have in mind? Ultimately, you must stay realistic throughout the process, to ensure the practicality of your home improvements and to avoid any disappointments.
