Why You Need To Renovate Before You Move In

So, you’ve finally found your ideal home and undoubtedly cannot wait to move in. But is it in need of a little work to make the space emulate your family’s lifestyle and needs before it can really feel like home? The good news is there is no better time to renovate and add your own personal touch to your home than before the moving trucks show up. Here’s why… 

Starting a renovation prior to moving in is always a good idea, as you will minimise disruption to you and your family. Don’t get me wrong, renovations are exciting and renewing for everyone involved but to live through a renovation is an adjustment. At the end of the day, you have a job site inside of your home, and we all know job sites can be messy, dusty and noisy at the best of times, and even more so when we are all spending more time at home than ever before. You and your renovator can take advantage of an empty home and get straight to work as soon as you receive the keys. 

Melbourne’s current restrictions surprisingly present a unique window of opportunity for homebuyers to act swiftly on renovating their homes prior to moving in. As it stands for everyone else wanting to start a reno between now and the end of October they can’t do so, but if you haven’t moved in yet your renovation could start tomorrow! You can also cash in on the governments $25,000 HomeBuilder grant towards your renovation. And you thought there were no perks to COVID-19!

When you have an expert design team at your fingertips to make informed design decisions about how your new spaces will best flow, where the groceries will land and how the natural light will fill a room, there is no need to live within the space before renovating. An interior designer takes the guesswork out of creating a functional and stylish space that will suit you and your family’s needs.  

So, if you’ve just bought a house, and you know you want to renovate – you have a huge advantage to get the messy, noisy stuff done before you’ve unpacked, allowing you to start enjoying your newly renovated home sooner.
