The Do’s And Don’ts Of Renovating Your Property
Interior Design Singapore: So you want to renovate your home, but you have no idea where to start or what entails a successful hassle-free renovation. Not to worry, we are here to help you get started, and what better way than to go through the do’s and don’ts of what it means to have a good successful renovation with a great interior design Singapore firm such as yours truly (wink wink), so let’s jump into it:
Do find out more about your home beforehand
This will save you a lot of time and money, not to mention easing the planning process before you approach any interior design Singapore company to aid in the renovation process. Knowing about your home’s every nook and cranny, such as the plumbing and which parts of the house are best insulated in cold weather or best left cooler in a hot climate for instance, can help you come up with a more cohesive design. However, while it can be hard as the homeowner to be as objective as possible especially if you’ve lived there for an inordinate amount of time, planning for a renovation helps one to see their home with fresh eyes and break them out of their shell, so take note.
Don’t stick to your checklist and think about the details early on
One of the biggest problems as an homeowner is coming up with little refurbishments that you may want but might not be possible to pull off for a myriad of reasons, on top of having a checklist of things you wish to implement during renovation that may not even be viable or could prove damaging to your home in the long run. So before you run to your interior design Singapore firm, remember that not everything on your checklist can be executed properly so talk to your interior design Singapore contractor about what can be implemented safely and what can’t be done or can be amended on the spot.
Do think about ‘light-touch’ refurbishment design
Avoiding major building work has in-built cost savings, so instead of tearing down walls to make more space, light-touch design might point you to a ‘broken-plan’ solution instead. This means your interior design Singapore contractor can develop connected spaces that can be partly opened up for summer and parties or closed off for privacy. Clever, efficient planning also reduces the chances of unforeseen elements showing up the more work you do, thus avoiding any delays, stress and draining your emergency money.
Don’t let constraints bring you down
Any home can be transformed by any thoroughly capable interior design Singapore contractor through renovation, and it is something many people who can’t afford to move have to do, which is why it can be very rewarding. This is especially true for period buildings in urban settings, where there are often space limitations and restrictions in the planning process, therefore it takes real skill to get the best out of them. Don’t let it get the best of you though, talk to your interior design Singapore contractor about what can be done within the given constraints.
