This article offers you a simple algorithm of actions in preparation for renovation and a few useful tips on the topic. Experts and seasoned people know that it is extremely important to plan everything in advance and how to prepare properly in order for the renovation to pass as easily and successfully as possible. The main thing is not to panic.
Measurements, plans, drawings
Paper – this is the basis of the basics. Without preliminary plans and drawings it is simply impossible to make good repairs and to make the interior really comfortable. Ideally, many papers will be required: starting with the existing housing plan, ending with the floor covering plan and electrical wiring. To be frank, to make the right measurements and to make good changes in existing plans is not an easy task. Therefore, at this stage, it would be very useful to enlist the support of professionals, that is, a designer, an electrician and / or a plumber.
Working documentation allows you to objectively assess the volume of future work, the approximate time for their implementation, as well as budget estimates.
Choose an interior style
Do you already know which style of interior is best for updating your home? – This is a difficult question, from the answer to which very much depends. So, if you decide where the plugs and switches will be located, what walls you need to demolish and which ones to leave, you can take for the interior design. Choosing this or that style, do not forget that it will in many respects determine the cost of your repair. If, say, the fashionable Scandinavian style today allows you to save money and get a beautiful design of the room, then such trends as classic, Art Deco, Provence, will not tolerate cheap imitations and total economy.
Planning of arrangement of furniture and plumbing
… And to begin, perhaps, follows from the second. Consider how to properly place a toilet and a bath, a wash basin and a kitchen sink. If necessary, consult with a plumber to avoid problems with sewerage in the future.
Planning the purchase and arrangement of furniture, it is important to take into account not only the style of the interior, but also the layout, as well as the dimensions of the room. To make the room comfortable, the furniture should not fill every free meter – there should be enough free space so that the interior does not seem cluttered, and things do not interfere with free movement.
When you know exactly what decoration (building) materials and furniture are needed, you can create a procurement plan. It is advisable to do this in advance so that there is time not only to find the best price, but also that the repair process does not stop waiting for the ordered tiles or, say, sanitary ware. Scheduling purchases, you can protect yourself from downtime, force majeure and lining.
