Renovating your home, whether it be a one-room refurb or an extensive home remodel, can feel overwhelming at the beginning but with a solid design plan, you’ll be able to navigate the waters much more easily. Follow these essential steps to achieve your dream renovation – minus the stress and mess!
The layout is the foundation — colours, products and fixtures come afterwards. Get the layout wrong and the lack of functionality will undoubtedly over-shadow all your design and decor choices, negatively impacting the overall design.
While you configure your dream layout, it’s worth thinking about how the space will fit with the home as a whole. Do the spaces flow seamlessly together? Is it easy to transition from one area to the next?
A well-designed home needs to ‘flow’. From the physical location of the walls to the location of individual fixtures, fittings and furniture within the space, the placement of every item in a room needs to be carefully considered.
We have greatly emphasized the importance of the layout and product placement, however, there are other essential items to take into consideration when planning a successful bathroom or kitchen renovation:
What’s your why? Is it to enhance your lifestyle, maximise your home’s selling potential or to accommodate a growing family.
What’s your budget? It’s absolutely vital to establish your budget from the beginning so that you can make design decisions without overstretching your finances.
Will you hire professionals? DIY is fine, but if you want quality assurance, you ought to consider employing an experienced and licensed renovation company that will complete your job on time and to budget.
