Here's the ultimate guide for home renovation

22 comments :



It's pretty satisfying to receive the keys to your new house because you’re halfway there for your dream house. So, what’s the other half to fulfill the dream house? 
It’s the renovation to transform your ‘raw’ unit into your liveable dream house. 
Whether your house is a HDB unit in Rochor or landed house in Bukit Timah, renovation is still needed to transform your house. 

Here’s some guides to home renovation.

Check your new house defects
Before renovation begins, be sure to check your unit like the window panes, if they are able to properly close. Check the paint on the walls as well to see if they are painted evenly. Also, do inspect the water pipes if there are any potential leakages, you can trace it by looking at the wall and paint with water streaks. 


Locate your cable, wiring and water works
It is vital to locate and plan all your points for your conveniences. Be sure to point and mark those points before discussing with your contractors on your renovation. It would be rather frustrating when the nearest point in your bedroom is far away from your bed. As for water works, identify how many faucets you want to install because it would be troublesome if you realized there’s shortage of water supply to your washing machine or fridge.

Keep your budget in check
Often the renovation costs exceeded our affordability could be frustrating and worried if we don’t keep track the spending. This is why setting a budget is really important, during planning your budget, increase your budget by 20% to 30% for any unexpected charges. Survey and research before engaging your contractors or interior designers. Share and discuss your concerns or priorities with them to ensure they don’t overcharge you. Plan ahead to avoid last minute changes especially when taking measurements or choosing the right material for your renovations and furniture. Lastly, always do research and reviews before making your decision.

Schedule your delivery items to arrive on time
The delivery items that we are referring to is your home furniture and electrical appliances. Be sure to set your delivery to arrive before your move in date. It would be awkward and inconvenient when your items arrive one by one after you have moved in. But arriving way early before your move in date is also a risk. Whilst the contractors are transforming your homes, your furniture may be at risk being ‘transformed’ or get stolen. 

Engaging the right ID or contractor for yourself
There are times you would curse and swear your interior designer or contractor when they screw things up, regardless front or back. This often happens when the briefing or communication is not clear or focus enough. There are times proposals from them tends to set unrealistic budgets or ridiculous timeline, like way overdue kind. To prevent these from happening, you will need to often communicate with your engaged interior designer.

It would be better to research and review few ID firms before engaging the right one. Make sure your ID is someone who you can talk comfortably with, transparent and reliable. Be sure to be present during the materials selection process as this will make sure you do not overspend your budget or get short change for what you have paid. Be as detailed as possible when you brief your ID or contractor, so they will know your direction and ideas of your dream house.

Car park permit application
If you are driving, be sure to apply for car park permit before moving in to your new HDB unit. This will make your move in process smoother rather than fumbling for car parks in the car park lots. There are different seasonal car park charges for you to choose from based on your monthly affordability.

Friendly neighbours, harmony neighbourhood
Although contractors start their renovating works during the day time where everyone is mostly out to work or school but do be considerate and understanding your neighbours. Before renovation works start, talk to your neighbours about your renovation works and let them know the duration of the works. They will appreciate for the information received so they can plan their schedule to stay away from noise (if it’s big renovation) or helping you to keep an eye around the neighbourhood or home while you were not around. This will form a comfortable bond between you and your neighbours even before moving in.

I was planning to redesign my home, so I was enthusiastic to know house extension costs London beforehand, so I consulted the local remodel architect to prepare a layout of new design immediately.

Having your own mobile phone is now very essential not only for those who have businesses but also even for those who are at home and at school. Your mobile phone is not only for taking pictures and checking the internet but most important for contacting someone in case of emergency cell phone store near me. Hence, it is really recommended for a person to have his own mobile phone always with him. However, there can be cases when your mobile phone gets damaged and whatever the reason may be, you now have a broken, unusable phone.
