Once you move beyond the excitement, pulling off a proper home renovation can be daunting. Projects of this scale demand time, money, and (most importantly) detailed planning. Throughout the process, you must be able to answer the questions: ‘who?’, ‘what?’, ‘where?’, ‘when?’, ‘why?’, and ‘how?’. Sometimes those answers may be difficult to come by – but not if you’ve planned adequately. Whether you’re just installing kitchen units in your Pretoria home or redoing the entire room, you need to cover all the major drivers to get your project on a roll.
To help you reduce the pressure of holding the fort during the renovation process, we decided to focus this blog on the main things to consider from the word ‘go’.
Request quotes from material suppliers in your area so that you have an idea of the cost. This way you can set a budget and secure the funds, then allocate them accordingly.
If you can afford to pay a professional for labour, factor this amount into point one. However, if you’re on the DIY path – whether alone or with help – ensure that you have the necessary support so that your resources aren’t wasted.
It makes no sense to install bright, brand new kitchen units if the rest of the room doesn’t quite meet the standard. We’re not saying revamp immediately, but keep this in mind if you want a complete renewal.
Perhaps most importantly, you have to get cupboards that will go the distance. You don’t get to change them every day, so make it count by buying from a reputable supplier who will protect your interests.
You can have all the money in the world. Without a plan, you could still fail. Even if you’re doing your home renovation on a budget, that’s no reason to neglect planning. In fact, you have even more to lose, so you should be running a tight ship. Taking care of all the aspects discussed in this article will allow you to focus on the important, unpredictable things as they show up.
