Renovating or remodelling your home may seem costly, inconvenient and overwhelming, but then again if you are already bored with the current appearance of your home, some home improvements can renew your interest as well as increase the value and enjoyment of your home.
If you have decided to tweak your home space, here are some tips to give your home a fresh feel, just in time for Chinese New Year!
Evaluate Your Lifestyle
This is basically the first thing you need to do before working on the designs and layout of your home. By asking yourself the question “how do you like to live”, gives you a better idea of your preferred layout, colours and styles.
Engage A Trusted Renovator
Spend time to research on renovators who possess great aesthetic and technical skills. Do a review of their work, and get as many referrals as you can from trusted sources. This way, you will not need to worry about the person who will be in and out of your home for days.
Work With A Design
Always start a renovation or remodelling project with a detailed floor plan. To come up with a good plan, seek for the help of professionals, be it architects or interior designers as they can lend a hand in building a functional and aesthetic space.
The process of decision-making when it comes to selecting paint, trim, faucet etc. is usually the cause of delays, hence do not delay decisions. A small delay may balloon into a week’s delay on a one month’s schedule.
Be An Effective Communicator
Meeting with your renovator at least once a day allows you to keep track of the progress reports as well the scheduled work over the coming days. You can also take this opportunity to ask questions and confirm all details with him progressively.
