Your Ultimate House Renovation Checklist in 2021

February 10, 2021

Home renovations can be seen as challenging and overwhelming but you can confidently move forward by only creating a checklist. In this way, you can ensure that you allocate your expenses where it is needed as misses and mistakes can be truly costly.

Floor Plan and Layout

First, you must assess the condition of your home and start identifying which parts of your home need renovation and decide whether it needs a drastic or cosmetic change only. You might also consider hiring a professional for additional help.

Determine Your Budget

Whatever the reasons for renovating, be sure to determine what it is that you really need versus what you simply want. For instance, an upgraded bathroom ceiling may be at the top priority, whereas a garden makeover may be lower down on your needs. Certainly, cutting unnecessary costs is not a bad idea especially when you’re working on a tight budget. Likewise, if you’re thinking to cut cost on your materials but unwilling to compromise on the quality, try to look for sale items or do some DIY works (i.e. painting your own wall).

Check Your Roof

It is ultimately a well-known fact that if your roof needs serious replacement, it should be done before any renovation. Check your roof for signs of damage such as:

  • Sunlight passing through your ceiling
  • Missing shingles
  • Exposed nail heads
  • Curled shingles
  • Water passing through

Update New Ceilings

It’ll be beneficial to replace your old ceiling system to keep your property up to date especially when a cracked or damaged is already visible.

  • Install new ceiling fixtures
  • Opt for ceiling boards with long-lasting features and termite resistant
  • Hire a contractor to inspect and install new ceilings
  • Consider installing a thermal insulation to reduce your electricity bills

Fix Your Flooring

It is important to look for functional and aesthetically pleasing flooring as this can make a big difference when looking at home renovation.

  • Update your floorings to fiber cement boards
  • Lay ceramic tiles in bathroom or living room
  • Look for floorings that are moisture resistant

Décor and Aesthetics

This is the most exciting part of a home renovation as finishing touches can really make it feel more like home.

  • Decide on a color scheme for each room and select paints or wallpapers
  • Install blinds or shutters for your windows
  • Scale some artwork pieces, lamps and mirrors
  • Choose quality pieces of furniture that match the theme of your home
