The 5 Initial Stages Of The Renovation Process You Must Go Through

Renovation is a lengthy process, but you can definitely make the most of it by adhering to these 5 initial stages to the best of your abilities:

1. Full-length appraisal

The first feature-length appraisal of your existing property must be done in the presence of an expert. You may read up and educate yourself on the intricacies of renovation, but unless you’ve got an expert eye, you won’t be able to detect any unforeseen structural damages that can pop up during the actual renovation process. This can ultimately save you a lot of hassle afterwards.

 

2. Waiting for the approvals

Contrary to popular belief, renovation does not start as soon as you lock down the final renders with your designers. There’s a waiting period here where your professionals get approval from the local authorities on the proposed designs. These take especially long if you’ve gone beyond the guidelines – maybe a wider window than standards or different floor finishes than the basic requirement – and need approval for these accessories.

 

3. Prioritize all the spaces

Planning your renovation in stages is an absolute must. You cannot start the project simultaneously on every room in the house. You must prioritize certain areas. For example, start and finish off the living room to get the main area of the home ready and done with. Or you can do the opposite and prioritize your master bedroom and other private areas over the public zones.

 

4. Break down your budget

Everyone knows the standard budgeting method, but did you know that your estimate can be much more accurate if you break it down according to each zone of your home. For example, if you draw a detailed analysis of every expense that’s going to go in either the kitchen or the bathroom (including small fixtures, accessories, etc.) then your overall estimate can be much better.

 

5. Set realistic goals

Finally, it’s always best to set reachable renovation goals. You may get impressed with elaborate magazine spreads all you like, but at the end of the day you’ll just be setting yourself up for failure. Instead, focus on furniture, accessories, and aesthetics that better suit your home style and space the best.
