How to plan for a smooth renovation

The process of renovating a new custom kitchen, bedroom or bathroom can seem stressful, with normal life upended temporarily and a construction zone in your home. However, with the right designers and careful planning, it can go smoothly and doesn’t need to feel overwhelming.

Here are some of our tips for planning for a smooth kitchen, bedroom, or bathroom renovation:

Decide on your materials and appliances early

The last thing you want is for your project to be stalled because an appliance you have your heart set on is out of stock.

That’s why it’s best to work with an interior specialist who can advise on the best materials for your project and who is aware of lead times and availability to properly schedule your renovation.

Choose a reputable design team

By carefully selecting a well-known, highly rated interior design company, you can avoid headaches like low quality work or delays.

Use your budget wisely

Build your home right the first time: choose high quality materials for a long-term fix and don’t skimp on the fundamental elements of your home.

Assess your budget and make a contingency plan – expect the unexpected, but also work with an expert design team who can help manage your budget and ensure your expectations are managed throughout the project.

Sort out your essentials

Before a kitchen redesign, it can be very helpful to plan ahead by gathering essential items that will allow you to cook, eat and clean as normally as possible. Figure out a space for your kettle, utensils, plates, etc where you can store and use them while your kitchen is being renovated.

The rest of the items will be boxed up and labelled to ensure its easy to restock your kitchen, bedroom or bathroom following the completion of the project.

Some of our clients use alternatives like a camping gas stove during their kitchen renovation – but it’s also a great excuse for getting a takeaway!
