Thinking About Renovating ?

Realtors and design experts expect that among the residential interior design trends that could emerge from the pandemic are more minimalist interior design and easy to clean decor and surfaces, a preference for multi-purpose spaces and more closed-concept floor plans to provide more privacy.

I have been seeing the change in demands for closed and multi-purpose spaces during the pandemic. I can not emphasize enough the importance of early planning. Not just we all are experiencing supply shortage , designing a new layout takes time.

Let's read the reasoning down below and see if you will agree.

If you are aware that your home or your commercial space is not working for you as it is, you should start talking about what is it not working.

  • Planning & Budgeting

The budget is one of the most important things to plan at the start of a renovation. This is always tricky to determine for a couple of reasons:

Renovations can open up some unexpected costs that weren’t budgeted for. Some of the things homeowners tend to forget when planning their budget are

  1. demo & dumpage fees,

  2. permits,

  3. possible asbestos removal,

  4. required upgrades,

  5. added % by contractors, and

  6. unforeseen incidents.

Things that are also not taken into consideration that don’t involve the actual work are accommodations if you have to stay somewhere else during the project, or if you’re doing a kitchen renovation planning for lots of take out meals.

  • Finishes

Selecting your finishes before the renovation starts gives you time to shop around for ideas, find alternative suppliers and keep an eye out for sales. Consulting a designer about finishes and colors before you start renovation would help you to make sure you will achieve the look you want which will save you time and money at the end. Designers know the latest trends, what will be out of style before your renovation is complete, and can create spaces you didn’t even know you could have or wanted!
