Full Home Renovation Completed In Matakatia

Full Home Renovation Completed In Matakatia
Here is a recently completed full home renovation in Matakatia, Whangaparaoa that we are very proud of. Everything from the home exterior to the bathroom, kitchen and bedrooms was redone. This is what you call a full home makeover. Let’s start with the exterior. For this home the owner wanted something a little different, so we decided to open up the whole side of the house to create an open living area that was one with the outdoors. Imagine having dinner there on a warm summer evening with a cool breeze whisping through!   Next is the interior, with a crisp white chosen as the base to give the home a light, summery feel. Each room then had it’s color theme hand-picked, to give each one a unique feel and experience when you go from one to the next. The kitchen also got a complete overhaul, sticking to the white theme.    Each bedroom got it’s own color scheme, that, while fitting with the rest of the house, gives each room it’s own individual flare.     The bathroom also got a complete do-over, with new tiling and all new bathroomware. The owners were extremely happy with their new home and we are proud of the work our Rodney Renovations Team did. Are you looking to renovate your Rodney home?

Keeping Up With Renovation Costs

Keeping Up With Renovation Costs
Let us start by stating a fact: Your home renovation will cost more than you think. Renovations are typically variable, so if you don’t plan your steps carefully, the costs can easily add up. And next thing you know you’re faced with a bill you’re not ready to handle. It could become a major financial setback that could put your family and relationship into peril. In extreme cases, it could lead to marriage break-ups or even bankruptcy. Whether your renovation project is grand in scale or modest, success lies in smart planning. How to plan You usually take on a renovating project with a vision in mind. But when you start thinking of all the work involved, it’s hard to know exactly where to start. For this reason, it’s recommended to enlist the help of a renovation specialist early on in the process. A professional can help guide you through a project that is realistic for your budget, whilst taking into account your needs and priorities. If you plan to take on the project by yourself, make sure to spend as much time as needed to figure out the exact costs of the materials you need. Consider things like shipping fees and the time it takes to finish each part of the renovation. Take note that paint needs drying, cement needs curing, etc. Find out how much renovation costs in your area Materials and labour costs vary widely depending on location. As a rough guide, the cost to renovate per square meter in Auckland ranges from $1,800 to $2,500. Anything over $3,000 is a prohibitive cost, which means you...

Home Renovations With Highest Return At Resale

Home Renovations With Highest Return At Resale
With the increasing property values, many Kiwis prefer to put their money into improving their existing homes rather than buying a new property and relocating, which is costly in itself. As well as enhancing the aesthetics of a house and adapting its use to changing lifestyles, renovations add value when it’s time to sell. While all renovations boost a property’s value, some give higher returns than others do. So which projects exactly add the most value? Kitchens The biggest value-add in will come from the kitchen, which could rake in about $50,000-$60,000 in return. Understandably, kitchens have become the social spot of many homes in New Zealand. It’s become more than just a place for cooking and eating, but a focal point for gathering and family bonding. However, looking at the 2018 figures from Refresh Renovations, homeowners actually prioritise bathrooms (19.2 per cent) more than kitchens (14.9 per cent). This may be due to the fact that kitchens are expensive to renovate. In fact, a basic kitchen remodelling project can set you back by $10,000 to $30,000. If you don’t plan it thoroughly beforehand, the figure climbs rather easily and can get out of hand. Too often, the biggest cost there is manpower. If you think about DIY-ing to cut your expenses, think carefully. Going the DIY route may extend the duration of the job, and you may even pay more in buying or renting equipment for certain parts of the project. A lot of people don’t realise that time they spend on DIY renovations is time they could be spending in other money-generating pursuits. If you want to...
