So you’re considering a renovation? Regardless of what you’re renovating, there are a few dos and don’t you need to follow for the process to be a seamless experience. Remodelling can be a disrupting, exciting and significant process, so don’t get caught out not knowing these vital reno tips!
Ultimately, it’s your choice how you want this renovation to go. You have a say in all aspects of the process, from budget right to the finishing touches, but here’s a piece of professional advice that you may want to take on board if you’re a bit lost on the design end of things. Neutral tones don’t age. Do stick with those neutral colours for the crux of the surfaces. Don’t get us wrong, we love a pop of colour but if you want a timeless non confronting home, keep it simple when it comes to the colour scheme.
Our first tip of the day is don’t let yourself go too far over budget. It is ok if you do (it happens, and that’s totally fine); sometimes, the odd added expenses here and there just pop up, and that’s ok! We understand that it can be very easy to slip into the excitement that comes with renovating; trust us, we have been there before. Sticking to a budget will make things a lot better for you in the long run, so try to keep that one in mind as you head along your renovating journey.
Do invest in high-quality appliances. Do your research look around for appliances that fit your budget but also have that high-quality factor. Warranty, online reviews, and feedback will help on your journey to choosing that perfect appliance for your home. A good choice in this area will not only impact your lifestyle and your bills but will help with that resell too.
A very “New Zealand” trait is to channel that age-old mentality of “she’ll be right, just do it yourself” I’m here telling you now if you’re not qualified, don’t do it yourself. Huge props for having the confidence to give it a go, but if you’re looking to execute a professional and high-quality renovation, leave it to the professionals, aye?
