Tips to Make Your Winter Renovation Easier

If you’re planning a renovation this winter, then you might be worried about how you’re going to approach the task at hand. Performing a home renovation can be a stressful time, especially if it renders an essential room out of use for a short while. Luckily, there are some ways in which you can make your life much easier.


Plan everything to the last detail

This means exactly what it sounds like. Here are some great ways of planning:
  • Make a floor plan of the room you’re renovating, and make sure that everything has it’s own place and that you know where everything is going to go before starting any work.
  • If the room you’re renovating is an important room like your kitchen or bathroom, make sure to make other arrangements for these needs. If you don’t have another bathroom in your home, you will need to figure out how you’re going to keep that bathroom in use.
  • Test out paints and wallpapers before beginning any work to make sure that you’re truly happy with them.
  • Try and plan out how much work you expect to be achieved each day of the renovation.

Hire help

To make your renovation as easy as possible, you should consider hiring help from professionals so you know that the work is done to a high standard. It’s likely that you will need some sort of professional help, even if it’s simply changing a light switch cover or light fixture, installing a garbage disposal, or removing items from your home. Companies like Shiply offer a ‘man with a van’ service for all of your removal needs. Make sure that this is all arranged in advance so that you can stay on schedule.

Keep it clean

One of the biggest mistakes that people make when renovating their homes is leaving the cleaning to the last minute. However, if you clean as you go you will be able to keep the work space much nicer to work in due to the fact that there will be less lingering dust and dirt. Cleaning up also ensures that you’re not making more work for yourself at the end of the renovation. While you might not be able to make it immaculate, keeping dirt at bay will help you work faster and more efficiently.

Be prepared for things to go wrong

Even though you have planned everything to the last ‘t’, there’s a chance that something will go wrong in the process. For example, you’ve planned for your sink in the kitchen to be moved, meaning you need a plumber to come and do the piping for you, yet they don’t show up. You will be left at a standstill. Make sure that you’ve got other things that you could be getting on with so that you don’t fall behind schedule. Having a backup plan will help massively.

Take these four pieces of advice into consideration when renovating your home and you will notice that the job is less intimidating. Remember, organization is key and don't be afraid to hire help when you need it!
