A renovation of this nature will without a doubt be one of the most expensive renovation projects you undertake in your home.  It’s very easy to get it wrong and blow out your budget, so follow these five tips to ensure your success:

The 5P’s of Kitchen and Bath remodelling

Prior planning prevents poor performance

That saying is an old favourite, a lot of people get excited after watching the latest TV renovation program that’s on.  Then they start tearing their kitchen or bathroom out, before giving any consideration to what they want to achieve.

We’ve even heard of people taking out their kitchens and bathrooms, and taking several years to finish the project.  So they have to cook on a camper gas top or use the next-door neighbour’s bath.

Spend as much time as you need planning what you want to do with your kitchen and bath remodelling project before you start.  That way you ensure you get the best result.

DIY or kitchen and bathroom subcontractors

With the TV Reality renovation craze, it’s very easy to get sucked into thinking it’s easy and you can Do It You Self.

Think it through, first, do you have the skills necessary to remove a bath or kitchen and replace them with a new one.  Are you capable of redesigning one of those rooms? If you don’t feel comfortable removing a bath, and replacing plumbing, levelling the floor, and installing a new bath, then use a subcontract plumber.

Using a subcontract might cost a little bit more upfront.  They will save you a lot of money, particularly if you have to call them in halfway through the project.

What’s the budget

This is one area that most people fail in, they don’t have a plan, and haven’t priced the project.  They think they have enough money. Research and PLANNING is the way to go.  This means you need to decide on what you want to do and how the budget for the project. It is often an idea to add 10% on top for the little things that often go wrong.

What style do you want

Renovating can be fun and really rewarding, but you need to consider the style, just because you like bright pink, doesn’t mean the next person that buys that home will.

So if you are looking to sell the property quickly, then think about style and colours. Using neutral colours is always a safe bet. Adding coloured accessories will enhance any room with a neutral colour palate.

What about the accessories

Great so you’re knee-deep in your renovation project, and you forgot to consider the accessories you need. Make sure this forms part of the first point.  There is no point making room for your fridge in your new kitchen cabinet.  If the fridge doesn’t fit into it. So measure twice cut once.

These are five really simple things to consider if you are going to do a kitchen and bath remodelling project.  Just remember prior planning prevents poor performance.
