Careful planning of works, security concerns, good craftsmen, and realistic understanding of the budget are just some of the steps we need to pay attention when deciding to start a renovation project. It is equally valid in case you go into the adaptation of the whole apartment or house, or you just wish to renovate one room. What mistakes are most commonly occurring and how to overcome those problems we bring in the text below.
Ignoring design of the project
A detailed elaborate concept, that is, the interior design is crucial for renovation. It’s irrelevant whether it’s about one room or the entire house. Take the time to plan. Take the paper and pencil and write down your desires and needs. Do not hurry. Take a look at magazines and websites that deal with renovation and editing to get the necessary ideas, see their realization in space, notice what you like and what not. Then, determine, according to your preferences, style and atmosphere, materials and colors you want to have in your home.
Yes, we know, preparations are exhausting and time-consuming, but that’s why they save money later and bring the project to an end within a reasonable time.
Laws specify which permits you to need to obtain in order to do the renovations. The sentences are rigorous, and if you have all the necessary papers, you will sleep peacefully. So it would be best to contact a contractor for your renovation because the professionals should know which permits you are going to need.
Shop in a hurry
Nice and functional materials are in almost every shop. They’ll be waiting for you! So before you try to buy something that you liked at first glance, whether you saw it at a store or with friends, on television or elsewhere, we recommend that you finish your project of renovating space in a functional and aesthetic sense.
Impulsive purchasing often leads us to realize later that we have made a mistake because we have purchased oversized furniture or inadequate color, a lamp that does not stylishly fit into the interior, poorly constructed chairs…
Exaggerating in details and sizes
Too large pieces of furniture or too many of them, as well as a multitude of different elements and details, will stall the space, reduce it and make it visually overcrowded. Therefore, plan everything in advance, and even small items like the paintings on the walls. Make sure that you do not place them too low or too high. The average person’s eye level is the best. Larger formats are much better to separate, but you can group images of smaller dimensions.
A lot of different figurines, vases, photographs, in each space will act inconsistently and even messy. And not to talk about how much dust they will be collecting… You’d better choose a few attractive pieces that you love and with which beautiful memories bind you, and place them and highlight them so that they act as a real artwork.
