6 Home Renovation Mistakes to Avoid

by Shruti Sharma Content Curator

The greatest advantage of owning a residential property is that you have the liberty to do whatever you may feel like in order to improve the quality of your living. Home renovations are an effective way to dust away the dull look of your house and give it a new life. So whether you are looking forward to renovating your 2bhk apartment in Goregaon or the best property in Mumbai which you proudly own, try planning in advance so as to avoid the following home renovation mistakes –

1.     Renovating on impulse

If you are renovating on impulse, you are going to end up in a tricky situation later on. For instance, if you did not plan ahead in time and impulsively removed the wall or the washbasin in your bathroom, you shall have to face the consequence of your split decision by being without them for days.

2.     No clear intent

Before you start your home renovation projects, make sure that you set a clear agenda in your mind. Whether you are renovating your house to increase its sale value or you simply want to improve its functionality, it is important to think through all this beforehand. For example, you should not invest much in the décor of your bedroom if you are planning to sell your house in the upcoming months.

3.     No proper planning

Whether you want to hire a contractor to renovate your house or you want to do it all by yourself, you need to plan everything in advance. Be it deciding on the budget to finish the project or estimating the man- hours, you need to be extra careful and calculative while planning it all. If you are not well aware of your requirements or your purpose, you will end up doing things with no fruitful outcomes both to your house and pockets. To avoid this, be sure you make a renovation checklist so as to remain focused throughout.

4.     Not abiding by the rules

If you don’t want any complications in the future regarding the renovation of your house, do check in advance with your local council before you begin. Also, check if you require any license. Very often, people disregard the rules and regulations of this kind and suffer the aftermaths.

5.     Not considering alternatives

If the renovation is being done on your current living space and you did not decide the alternative space before you began, you might find yourself in a messy situation. So it is extremely crucial to have a far-sighted approach before you go big on the renovation projects.

6.     Blowing the budget

This is perhaps the most common mistake people make during the house renovation. To avoid this from happening, you must have a detailed discussion on each and every thing, be it with professionals or peers who have done it in the past. Moreover, you can run a thorough research online by yourself and be sure about the things you would want to include.
