We have gathered all the information you need to kick-start your stress free home renovations Auckland:
What do you want to change?
The best way to start planning your home renovations is by making a list of all the things you’d like to change. This is a crucial step in your planning process as it will help you to finalise your wish list. The list might include anything from “must-do” repairs to re-modelling and refurbishment. It’s also worthwhile to note things that you’d like to keep and preserve. For examples, if your current house features beautiful antique windows, you might want to keep them and figure out a way to safeguard them against any re-modelling pitfalls.
The next step is to describe your day to day life and to write down some of the most common problems you’d like to solve. An example is a growing family having to deal with only one bathroom and toilet. Once you identify your pain point, it would be easier to come up with solutions and prioritise your wish list. It will also help you see what “needs to be done” vs what you “would like” to do which can save you money in the long run.
Setting a budget for your house renovations Auckland
No two houses are alike, and the improvement costs differ from project to project. The final renovations cost will depend on your home’s current condition, age and the scope of the work you plan on doing. However, there are a few things you can do to keep yourself within a budget.
Look closely at what you already have. For example, some Auckland homeowners might assume that they need an extra floor space when all they really need is to rearrange their interior walls!
Consider long term investments. Energy efficient lighting means long term savings. Likewise, water conserving features and high-efficiency heating systems will save a considerable amount of money over time.
