Take the stress out of Your ren­o­va­tions

Life & Style Weekend - - HOME TRANSFORMA­TIONS -

Re­mod­elling homes can of­ten in­tro­duce un­nec­es­sary stress, ex­penses and com­pli­ca­tions.

Re­duc­ing the amount of chaos dur­ing the time you are ren­o­vat­ing can be sim­ple and achieved by com­plet­ing some easy tasks.

In kitchens and bath­rooms es­pe­cially, keep­ing the same po­si­tion of the kitchen sink and toi­let can save you money, time and stress.

Avoid chang­ing any major plumb­ing or light­ing, as it adds to the cost of your re­mod­elling and could be­come a has­sle.

Com­plet­ing tasks while ren­o­vat­ing is of­ten dreaded, but it doesn’t need to be. Jobs such as sim­ple de­mo­li­tion can eas­ily save you from hir­ing un­needed tradies, as long as you take care.

Other sim­ple tasks that can be ac­com­plished by your­self in­clude de­sign­ing and as­sem­bling fur­ni­ture.

Help­ing out can eas­ily as­sist in keep­ing your house stress free while re­mod­elling.

You can help out those around you by do­ing lit­tle things here and there such as sand­ing and help­ing at the end of the day with clean­ing up.

A tidy work­ing space can elim­i­nate un­wanted stresses and will re­move risks around the place, which makes clean­ing up at the end of the day one of the most im­por­tant jobs.

Fi­nal­is­ing your de­ci­sions could po­ten­tially be­come a long process so it is im­por­tant to start mak­ing de­ci­sions long be­fore you be­gin the process of restor­ing your home.
