If you are thinking about the renovation of your house, plan the project well and arm yourself with patience. With this practical guide, you will know where to start.
When spring arrives, the season of home renovation begins and the good weather allows us to have the windows open, which is so important when doing work at home if we do not want to suffocate ourselves with the smells of paints, varnishes, dyes, etc. So if you have thought this year to reform the kitchen, and the bathroom, or even getting involved in major works in your house, here are the best tips so that it is not a complex path.
Before getting into flour, you have to know in advance what budget you have. It will be of great help to you to use a free reform calculator with which to know the final price. Many renovation websites include it. Once you have it, contact professionals and ask for several quotes. The OCU recommends requesting at least three to compare.
Before asking for budgets you have to know what finishes you want. An interior designer can help in the quality-price tandem. It is advisable to sign a construction contract that specifies the budget for the reform and the deadlines.
Floor And Wall Tiles
The ideal when choosing floor and wall tiles is to have time to search for materials on offer or liquidation (if they are from other seasons). You have to avoid getting carried away by the most radical options, which tend to be more ephemeral and you can get tired of them beforehand.
Dare To Say No
If when they start working on the reform you don’t like something, it is preferable to say so before repenting later. Of course, you will have to assume the economic and technical consequences that these changes cause.
A Single Company For The Reform
Electricians, plumbers, painters… It is advisable to choose a single comprehensive company that brings them all together. The coordination between them will be better and the price, more adjusted.
Painting Firm Websites
If you are going to paint the walls and you don’t know what tone to choose, the websites of painting firms offer color simulators that allow you to experiment until you find the right one.
Lighting planning is essential. If the electrical installation is going to be changed, several factors will have to be taken into account: the surface of each room, the location of windows and doors, and determining the use that is going to be given to it.
If you are going to change doors, windows, boilers, or appliances… find out about the renewal plans of your autonomous community. Depending on where you live, there are different aids and subsidies, especially if you focus the reform of the house on energy saving, security, or rehabilitation of the building.
General Plan For The Reform
If to extend the room or make a dressing room you have to knock down partitions, you should ask the president of the community or the administrator for a real plan of the building. This way you will know if the house has undergone important modifications after the initial project. Another option is to ask an architect to do a home plan survey. In this way, you will know which pillars or walls can be removed, as well as the layout of the pipes and whether or not the redistribution can be carried out without problems.
Real Needs Of Residents
Renew the facilities, knock down partitions, change doors and windows… Before undertaking any work, it is convenient to think about the real needs of the residents. Write them down and let the professional know so that they can offer you specific solutions.
Permits For Reform
Most home renovation requires a permit from the town hall. Find out before. If you are going to install awnings, air conditioning, or do work that affects the façade of the building, in addition to requesting the proper license, you must notify the community of residents.
