Before you start designing or renovating your home it is important to identify and map out the purpose of the renovation. Is the house intended for improvement before sale, for design before it becomes an income-producing property where tenants will live for rent or in order to upgrade the home space in which you live? Each of these options will determine the quality of materials you will use: Renovation of rental apartments will usually be done with cheaper raw materials at a loyour standard than pre-sale improvement. If you are upgrading the apartment you need to look at your personal taste and if any other work needs doing. Perhaps you need an electrician to help you, such as Smillie Electrical Services.
Select the properties of the house you want to change
Once you have defined the purpose of the renovation and upgrade of the house, even before you decide on a high budget upgrade you should choose the properties of the house that require change. You can renovate the kitchen and bathroom, replace flooring or settle for a cosmetic change and repaint the house. Nowadays, you do not have to replace the kitchen cabinets or replace the bathroom in order for them to look good. You can renew them with sanding and repainting and make them look brand new. The floor can be upgraded in a variety of ways: you can replace carpet with parquet, add ceramic or marble flooring or expose the concrete and create an impressive and colorful epoxy layer, the sky’s the limit.
How do you choose your professionals?
Once you have chosen what characteristics you would like to change in the home, you can begin to select the professionals who will perform the work. Note that some can also help you choose the raw materials you will use. Sometimes, professionals can get significant discounts on sanitary ware for the kitchen and bath, better prices on flooring, tiles and bricks and more affordable prices on home furniture like armchairs and cabinets. It is advisable to choose several companies that provide general renovation services and find one foreman. Some families are interested in managing the renovation themselves and choose each of the professionals individually – electrician, sequencer, plumber and the like. If you do not have experience in major renovations it is advisable to leave these coordination actions to the professionals.
Home design with the help of an interior designer
If you are interested in selling the house or living in it for years, you may want to choose a slightly different design statement or enlist the help of a professional to choose the design style of the house. You can tell your designer what your overall vision is for home design – would you like a simple Provencal design? Classic design or modern and polished design? Your interior designer will be able to help choose the location of the various objects in the house, choose the lighting fixtures taking into account the natural and artificial lighting that currently exists in the house and assist in making additional design decisions.
