How Melbourne’s Current Lockdown Restrictions Affect Your Renovation

This week’s extended lockdown restrictions have left many Melbournian’s with a number of questions, no less around what is and what isn’t allowed when it comes to their home renovations. Fortunately, the construction industry remains operational in a reduced capacity, and this includes specialty home renovations, but what does that really mean?

We have outlined everything you need to know about planning your renovation throughout Melbourne’s lockdown.

Can I start planning my renovation?

While you’re confined to your home, lockdown proves to be the perfect time to start planning your home renovation, whether that be your bathroom, kitchen or your whole home. Renovators remain open and are available to provide advice as well as quote and design your home renovation.

The current lockdown restrictions mean that you can’t meet with your interior designer face-to-face in your home, or within a showroom but don’t let that stop you. Virtual consultations can be conducted to ensure you can start your renovation journey from the comfort of your own home.

The process of confirming your design, selecting materials and products takes time so by the time you and your interior designer have collaborated on all of the finer details we will be out the other side of this lockdown and ready to come into your home to start renovating! (our fingers are crossed so tightly that we will all be back out and about soon!)

There really is no better way to improve your family’s home life than with a home renovation!

Can renovations continue throughout lockdown?

The good news is that during Melbournes lockdown renovation works can continue onsite, residential bathroom and kitchen renovations can proceed providing the correct COVID safe plan and restrictions are in place and that the home is vacant.

So if you have a vacant investment property that is in need of a little TLC or you have loving in-laws you can call on to move in with to vacate your home, then your renovator can get started on building the bathroom, kitchen or home of your dreams.

And the best news is that we have availabilities in our calendar throughout lockdown, so if you want to jump the queue and renovate your vacant property ASAP we want to hear from you!
