Knowing how to face at the best a renovation, small or large, is really important to prevent the dream from becoming a nightmare!
We have said it several times, restructuring is not a picnic, and it can be very stressful, but some tricks can “facilitate” this path!
THREE TRICKS TO FACILITATE THE PATH
Let’s see them together, in order:
– CHOOSE AN ARCHITECT OR SURVEYOR:
If you need to renovate, unless you just have to redo the floors and/or whitewash, you MUST turn to a professional for the project, for the bureaucratic part, for safety on-site and, indeed, follow the work!
Be careful that not all professionals do everything I have just mentioned, so I recommend making sure that it can follow every part, not to risk any kind of sanctions!
– MAKE A DETAILED PROJECT:
I know, it’s not the first time you’ve heard me say it, but that’s because it’s really the cornerstone of the whole process!
Where to start?
If you don’t build from scratch you must surely start from the current state map!
From there, if you rule out any load-bearing walls, you can really go wild!
But I suggest you start with the furniture!
I know it sounds counterintuitive, but if you study the rooms from the furniture you’ll be able to create really functional settings!
Once you have identified the furniture, you can decide on the appropriate size for each room.
Once this is done, or at the same time, you can choose the materials and finishes, so that they will match the chosen furniture!
Then you can study the various systems, the electrical one, in particular, will be studied ad hoc for the position of the various elements present, making the environment even more comfortable!
– CHOOSE THE CONSTRUCTORS OR THE VARIOUS CRAFTSMEN:
having clear the work to be done and the materials you want to use will make it easier for you to search and find the right professionals!
I know that often we start from the choice of the constructor, but it is unthinkable that everyone can do everything!
Laying a resin, for example, is certainly not the same as laying tiles and requires different skills!
If you have a clear idea of what you want to do you can choose a constructor or craftsmen SPECIALISED who will surely know how to do a good job!
Better a single constructor or individual craftsmen?
It always depends on the works you want to do, there are the pros and cons in both cases:
– with a single constructor, you have only one contact person and the professionals working inside already know each other, this could save time,
– if turn on individual craftsmen you may get lower prices, because, easily the company will add a more or less large percentage on the quote of the individual professional!
In any case, if you choose a constructor, make sure that it does the work directly and not subcontract to another company, in this case, you can be sure that the prices will be much higher!
OTHER ADVANTAGES OF FOLLOWING THESE THREE TRICKS
Doing this will allow you to have a clear understanding of the costs you are about to face, and the picture is total!
So, not having yet “lifted a finger” you can always fix things!
Once you’ve done these three things, you can start work!
Will everything go smoothly?!
Well, it’s really hard because a few hitches and a few unexpected are easy to happen, it’s part of it!
If you invest some time in the research for the right professionals, but especially in the project, you will surely reduce the problems!
And the stress that follows and you will surely be able to face your renovation in the best way!
Even at an economic level, the possible cost increases are reduced, because the quotes for the works are based on a well-detailed project, and therefore, unless there is a change in the race on your part or something unexpected, the prices will remain the same!
TO DEAL AT THE BEST A RENOVATION IT’S POSSIBLE!
To face at the best a renovation is possible, the important thing is not to be in a hurry to start the work without having clear ideas!
Among other things, when everything is well planned, it allows you to speed up the whole process and not just a little bit because everyone will have clear what to do and so there will be no waste of time!
The investment made in the project and research will pay off!
