Starting to plan your home renovation in Sydney? Updating your home to reflect your current lifestyle, or are you adding more space or improving the functionality of your home? Whatever your reasons, a home renovation can be a great way to improve the quality of your home and your life.

Are you ready for that home renovation project you’ve been dreaming about? You could be living in your dream home sooner than you think! Hiring a professional home renovation service provider will be worth the investment.

When planning a house renovation in Sydney, it is important to consider the following:

What are your specific goals for the renovation?

Reasons for renovating are always personal and individual. No two homes nor two family’s needs ever end up exactly the same so it’s essential to know exactly what you’re going for.

Your renovation will be designed to solve the problem your current home presents. Do you have a clear understanding of the problem you need solved, or is your problem more nebulous and vague? Would you like your renovation designer to help in identifying your problem?

Answering these questions will help you set your goals for your renovation. It’s important to know what your endgame is when undertaking a project as consuming as a renovation so you always have something to aim for.

How much can you afford to spend?

It is a small fraction of renovators who can afford to pay for their renovations entirely out of pocket. Most people take up loans or receive financial advice from businesses such as Sandcastle Finance. Your specific circumstances will be determined by the renovation you’re after and your flexibility.

Renovations are by nature growing and evolving processes influenced by material logistics, local restrictions, and human labour availability. There are delays, mitigating circumstances, and unforecasted problems. These suggest a level of flexibility in your budget is required to absorb changes to your plans. As these changes can also come with time delays, it’s important to consider the price of ongoing expenses and external influences like the Reserve Bank’s interest rates.

While it is impossible to know the future, planning in advance for these possible eventualities means you’ll never be unprepared for the price. You’ll have either got it right or you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

What kind of design do you want?

There’s always keeping with your home’s current look and feel – but if you’re going to renovate, why not choose a style that reflects you and your family? There are always restrictions, whether from your local council, heritage listing, or by your budget, but your options are often far from limited. Take a look at the styles we use in Our Projects.

What kind of timeline do you have?

There’s no denying it: renovations are timely processes. They require extensive planning, allowances for unforeseen setbacks, and operate at the whims of the weather. With this in mind, it’s easy to see how a renovation project can take days or weeks longer than initially estimated, and to bear that in mind when making any decisions.

There is a bright side. Every bit of progress is literally built in front of you while you wait, so you can always see how your renovation is going.
