How to remodel a house: keys to renovating your homeby TM Maria Be a king in your own kingdom
Few times in life can we buy a new house or move to the place we want, but making spare parts is available to everyone if we save some money or take out a loan and plan different stages. We can gradually reform each environment and renovate our home in a process of months or even years. We share some ideas on home renovations Perth without major investments or works that pass us from stress.
Reforming is an art that may surprise us: more than once it is hard for us to believe before and after a bath, a kitchen or a bedroom after a renovation. Whether to modernize a house, to change a style or to fix breaks or deterioration, with a good repair we can completely renovate our home.
How to refurbish a house
If you are one of those who have decided to buy an old house, inherited a property or need to renovate your home for many years, do not worry: no matter how bad some spaces may have, everything can be improved.
The best thing we can do when planning reform is to evaluate with time what we want to do, ask for budgets and ask what kind of work it demands and how many weeks or months of work each part entails. There are three key issues that, well analyzed, prevent errors and unnecessary expenses.
If we are thinking about economic and simple reforms, the budgets are more limited and, the work times are shorter. But more than once, especially in the case of kitchen renovations, we underestimate deadlines and costs and then we find a problem difficult to navigate.
Home renovations: what you should know
Reforming a house is not something that can be faced from one day to the next. There are several issues to evaluate in detail:
The fundamental thing when planning a remodeling is to be clear about your priorities: think about what you want to achieve. It is not the same to reform only one bathroom than to make a comprehensive reform. Nor is it the same to make a traditional reform (lifting walls, etc.) than opting for dry work and cutting execution and budget times. If we are going to modify the distribution of the house we must consult with an architect and also define what materials and coatings we want to put in each place.
If the replacement is a simple change of face, without throwing walls, lifting floors or making changes at the structural level, the thing is simpler. But, even so, I kept in mind that, inevitably, a reform - especially if it is in bathrooms, kitchens or laundry rooms - usually requires changes in water outlets and drains, in pipes, in sockets and points of light and in coatings.
One of the main excuses or factors that discourage us when starting work at home is time. As fast as it is, a remodel always alters the routine and the order of the home, making it difficult to find the ideal moment. But doing a "refresh" at home renews energy and totally changes a space.
If your house is small and you want to enlarge it, there are small tricks that help us create much wider spaces: take advantage of the outdoor space (such as a small patio or terrace to enjoy with the family) or grow up, adding a second level.
Keep in mind that the extensions are not all external. If the house has many environments and partitions, it is advisable to eliminate some to have ample spaces, which will make the feeling of spaciousness inside the house multiply considerably, creating a much more welcoming and social environment.
How to renovate an old house
Remodeling environments have its complexity, but when we want to find out how to reform an old house, things get even more difficult, because more than once we have to touch structures and rethink measures. In general, it involves changes in the facade, in the interior and in the domestic equipment. A refresh is not enough. Ideally, in these cases, an architect or builder will see the plans and advise us.
A good idea is to renovate the exterior with modern color combinations, which completely renew the look of the house.
