Renovating your home is a huge job and it can cause a lot of upheaval. Our warehouse Enfield will help alliviate the stress.
In 2021, 53% of homeowners renovated their homes and 77% invested in their homes in some way. These renovations and home improvements led to UK homeowners spending a whooping £21 billion in 2021 alone.
The pandemic played a large part in many people deciding to improve their homes. This is unsurprising as we were all confined within our homes for months, allowing people to truly figure out what they liked and did not like about their homes. Many people chose to work on their gardens as the pandemic really brought home how important outside space is and how lucky we are if we have our own gardens.
Many people also buy houses which are in need of renovating as it is a challenging yet rewarding way to truly put your stamp on a home. It does come with some challenges which can cause a lot of stress so it is important that you go into your renovations with a plan.
Here we will chat about how to navigate these challenges and how our warehouse Enfield will help to overcome them.
Make a checklist
This may seem quite obvious but it is so important that we are going to tell you anyway – make a renovation checklist.
In order to do this, you need to think about what you want to do with your new home and what is possible.
Is there space to do an extension?
What have other people done in the neighbourhood?
This will give you a good grasp of what type of things receive planning permission.
Is the work you want to do more structural or decorative?
Once you have answered these types of questions you can begin to make a checklist of what you want and then begin seeking professional advice.
Speak to professionals
This would definitely be a great time to speak with professionals such as architects and builders as they will be able to tell you what is possible with your new property.
We are certain you will have many wonderful ideas of your own it is really important that you bring in an architect or a designer as they will have the skills and training to make your renovations work with your house and look amazing. It is very easy to get swooped up in trends but not all trends will work with every house.
Speak with a variety of professionals and find the person who you feel will bring your renovation dreams to life.
Have your budget planned
Before you begin renovating you have to have a budget planned which takes into account all the additional fees that come with a renovation. These include things like reconnection fees for connecting or reconnecting the water supply, valuation fees, professional fees for planning permission and building regulation approval and legal fees.
You have to have all of these types of fees in mind when deciding on your budget. Renovating is not just about paying for the builders’ work and the supplies.
