Let’s look at some areas you may choose to renovate
Kitchens and bathrooms
Kitchens are usually the most popular area to renovate as it can make a huge impact on your home. It is where a lot of time is spent so think carefully about what you want here. A solution to keep down cost is to leave the main components example the sink where it is and just replace it with new.
- There is an exemption to the Building Code which allows you to replace kitchen fixtures that are being installed in the same location, provided you are using the same or comparable materials. We have consultants to help with design, scope and cost. It is recommended to protect your house with properly installed and detailed waterproofing. Getting in a plumber to check on your pipes etc while having your kitchen renovated is a good tip and can save you money if he spots a problem starting.
Bathrooms are another favourite place to renovate as it can change a lot about your home. For example, if you have more children or regular visitors having an extra sink installed or adding an extra bathroom or even just an extra toilet can hugely impact, and quieten, your home life. Again keeping sinks and toilets etc. in the same location can keep costs down but replacing them with more modern fixtures can change the whole look of the bathroom. This is another area that while your renovating get your pipes and things checked to avoid future problems.
Why not an Extra room?
Adding an extra lounge or bedroom can easily make a house more liveable. A very popular idea is to turn your garage or half of a large garage into an extra bedroom or office. This is normally the cheapest easiest option to making your house at least seem bigger. Or you could turn it into a playroom or extra lounge.
