06/06/2022

If you want to renovate your home, you should always get expert help. Apart from getting excellent results and outcomes, getting expert help can also save you from a lot of hassle and activity.

In this post, we are going to be looking at different types of renovation projects and why having a renovation designer in each of them is absolutely necessary. Let’s start.

Does Your Project Need a Renovation Designer?

1.Bathroom renovations

Bathrooms are one of the easiest places to renovate, and they can add a lot of value to your home as well.

But, just like with other renovation projects, you also need to get expert help with remodelling your bathroom. Here’s why.

  • Acquiring Fixtures and Appliances

Instead of going through the hassle of acquiring all the fixtures and appliances yourself, you can simply get the help of a renovation designer and let them handle all the procurement.

In this way, there will be a lot less chance for you to get your hands on some third-class and defective products.

The designer will be able to scan the market and acquire quality products that will be able to last longer and get you the most out of your money.

  • Contacting Builders and Contractors

While some light bathroom renovations may not require a contractor or builder, there may arise a need for them if the remodelling involves moving fixtures around, and installing additional fitments and appliances.

  • Conducting and Supervising the Renovation

Similarly, when the time comes for the actual renovation, you don’t have to be physically present to supervise and watch the contractors, builders, plumbers etc., get on with their job. Your renovation designer can take care of this part as well, and make sure that everything goes according to the planned design.

2.Kitchen Renovations

Kitchen renovations are, like bathrooms, a great way to add value to your home. For these types of remodelling projects, having a renovation designer can be great for the following reasons:

  • Contacting and Handling Suppliers

When it comes to renovating kitchens, there can be a lot of items and objects that may have to be brought in directly from factories or manufacturers.

To handle these types of long-drawn and hassle-some transactions, your renovation designer can lend you a hand. You won’t have to specifically take out the time to go and personally buy the required supplies.

  • Planning the Layout

Your renovation designer can also help you come up with the planned layout of your kitchen. They can coordinate with you to create a setting that is ideally suited for you and your family. This can involve planning the positioning of the counters, cabinets, island and so on.

  • Acquiring Professional Plumbers

With kitchen renovations, especially if the sink or island has to be moved to a different position, it is necessary to hire professional plumbers. Your designer can get in touch with plumbing service firms and get professional experts for your remodelling job.

3.Laundry Renovations

Renovating laundry rooms usually does not involve as much extensive activity as kitchens and bathrooms. However, there is still a lot that your designer can help you with.

  • Procuring Laundry Equipment

If you want to upgrade your whole laundry set up along with the remodelling job, your renovation designer can help you find equipment such as recessed washing machines or dryers etc.

  • Purchasing Fitment and Fixtures

Similarly, if you need to install some additional cabinets, hooks, rails or other sorts of storage units in your laundry room, you can leave it to your renovation designer. Apart from acquiring all these, your designer will also get in touch with a contractor for you to get them installed.

  • Contacting Electricians

Since laundry rooms usually have a lot of electrical equipment in them, the need for an electrician can arise at one point or the other. Your designer will also be able to help you out here by contacting electric service agencies and firms and hiring a reliable electrician for your job.

4. Full House

Full house renovations are big-scale projects, and you should definitely get the help of a renovation designer to coordinate and conduct them properly. In summation, the designer can help you with these types of tasks:

  • Creating the Architectural Layout using CAD Software

To help you visualise the changes and alterations that you want to make in your house, your renovation designer can create detailed drawings and graphs using CAD. You can discuss the different changes with them in order to fully tailor the design to your need and requirement.

  • Liaison with Suppliers

As we mentioned, full house renovations are large-scale projects. You need to acquire all sorts of building materials from suppliers. Dealing with this procurement can be an unnecessary hassle for you. Depending on your experience in remodelling projects, you may even lack the proper know-how to through with these dealings properly.

Luckily, you can hand all of this over to your renovation designer and sit back in peace.

  • Acquiring Permits from the Council

Depending on how large or extensive your home remodelling project is, you may need to acquire permits for it. This type of paperwork can be time-taking and arduous…but not if you have a renovation designer.

5. Home Extensions

Extensions are similar to full-house renovations, albeit on a slightly smaller scale. Here is how a renovation designer can help with them.

  • Planning the Design

Your renovation designer can create detailed plans for your extension project, and work on them with your coordination. This will help you stay up-to-date and informed about the details of the project while also avoiding the hassle of creating the plans yourself.

  • Contacting Construction Firms

Depending on your location, there can be a lot of different construction firms around you. Based on their experience, your renovation designer will be able to contact and negotiate with a reliable construction firm for your project’s building needs.

Getting through with a renovation project without a renovation designer can be difficult and arduous. Your designer can help you with a lot of jobs and tasks during your project, and they can save you from the hassle and trouble of dealing with contractors, suppliers, builders and constructions firms.
