A home renovation is an exciting opportunity to reinvent your home in your image with almost endless possibilities. However, before getting started, here are three things you should be aware of that may help inform the design process of your renovation.

1. Nail The Basics

Before you can proceed with your renovation project, it’s essential to complete the following tasks to start on the right foot:

2. Schedule Work and Prepare Your Home

With our home renovations, we know how valuable it is for our Fareham and Swanmore customers to have a schedule of work agreed upon in advance. Renovating your home can be a chaotic period, and no one wants to live with a construction site in their house for longer than necessary. Get a clear idea of how long your renovation project should take to complete so that you can use this information to make contingency living plans. You may need to make temporary arrangements to separate you and your family from the construction site and move items in your home into storage, plus other plans.

3. Avoid Spending on Unnecessary Work

When renovating, it can be tempting to completely change your Fareham or Swanmore property. However, the more you change, the more expensive your home renovation will be and the longer it will take to complete. Although this doesn’t affect everyone, if you have set yourself a restrictive budget, you want to make sure you’re spending it on the aspects of the project that matter most to you. For example, removing period windows, doors, or ground-floor bathrooms can remove your property’s sense of character and practicality, detracting from the final product. 

Our building contractors excel at listed building renovations, specialist brickwork, and structural alterations, ensuring the visual integrity of any historical home.
