Embarking on a home renovation project can be daunting, but if you’re up for the challenge, you can create a forever home you’ll love living in. In the latest blog post from Williams Windows, we discuss our top home renovation tips to help see you through your impending project.
1) Hire Professionals
When changing your home in any way, it is important that you get it right first time to avoid the extra expense and time of rectifying the mistakes. Hire professionals, before you begin taking a hammer to the walls, not only will this save you time, it will also give you the peace of mind that your home is in good hands.
When looking for tradespeople, get three quotes for each job and references from previous clients. You’ll also want to draw up a written agreement of cost and the time the job will take.
2) Think Before You Convert
Loft conversions are often the easiest way to add extra space to your home. However, if you decide to extend upwards, you will also need to consider how you will reach the space (steep ladders are not ideal and will almost certainly put many potential buyers off).
Another thing to consider will be standing height; if floor joists have to be inserted they will reduce the ceiling height which could restrict what the room is used for.
3) Buyers Want Your Home, Not Your Style
If you are renovating a property with a view to selling it on, it is vital to remember that potential buyers want your home, not your decor taste. In this way, it is important to keep the decor of a property fairly neutral, allowing potential buyers to consider what they may do with it to make it their own. Neutral decor also allows viewers of your home to better imagine where their own belongings would go.
