Tips To Assist With Home Renovations

February 22, 2023

The reality of the renovation process can often be challenging, such as budgetary limitations, concerns regarding resale value, and unforeseen obstacles that only become apparent during demolition. Although the design concept may be the easier aspect for an architect who opts to renovate their own home, the renovation process itself can prove to be quite demanding. Here are a few tips to assist with home renovations.

Consider the Trade-Offs

Although there may seem to be an infinite supply of creative ideas for a remodel, the budget is often limited. The key is to discern which aspects to splurge on and which ones to save on.

Balance Compromise With Curiosity

When renovating a home that a family has lived in for an extended period, why not explore options with the original structure that could result in an interesting design solution? 

Incorporate Your Personality

When undertaking a home renovation, many homeowners wonder about the potential effect of personalised design changes on their property’s resale value, and how they may impact it. However, rather than being hesitant to include features that you adore to create a living space that you will enjoy, it’s worth noting that there’s a high likelihood that future buyers will also value and appreciate them.

Remain Flexible and Expect Changes

Flexibility is a key trait to have when renovating an older home. As the true conditions of the home are often revealed only during the demolition process, it may become necessary to modify the renovation plans from their original form. This can even present opportunities to incorporate the existing building’s features and enhance the project’s character in ways that were not initially envisioned during the design phase. Being receptive to such developments is vital.
