// Renovating Your Home Can Be A Challenging Affair


If you have any experience with renovating, extending or designing a renewed home space, you know just how challenging this process can be. Not only do you have to manage all of the logistical tensions to make any progress at all, but financial and scheduling difficulties can lead this process to a dead-end if you’re not careful.

However, even if you have everything correctly monitored and prepared on your end, it’s true to say that unpredictable obstacles can line your path. From here, deft management is all about figuring out how to jump over those obstacles, or use them to achieve a more relevant and suitable result. Now, it’s true that despite only being six months into 2020, this year has certainly made its impact. As such, planning a complex operation to this degree can seem somewhat intense.

For this reason, we have decided to accumulate some important advice, helping you manage your first or upcoming home renovation project with care, allowing you to avoid some of those difficulties and otherwise work towards a competent result.

Practical Legal Codes

Practical legal codes can prevent you from gaining the planning permission necessary to move forward. You may be in a heavily urbanized area, or an area of outstanding beauty that your local council is responsible for protecting. However, other options may exist. From single story extension options (a lighter alternative) to knocking through your inner wall for an open-plan space, the best architect and home design services can help consult with you from the first step to the last, helping you find what is feasible for your current legal situation.

Neighbor Management

Of course, it’s not always easy managing neighbors when renovating the space. You have to show your intent to extend via a public notice, the duration of its placement gives your neighbors time to dispute. However, it can be worth speaking to each of your neighbors in advance to ensure they know your plans, the exact timelines, and the work you hope to have done. Furthermore, being on good, honest terms with them in this way will help them accept this, and from there you may be expected to return the favor. It’s a small measure, but it can either aid or limit your approach from here on out.

Understanding Your Space

It’s important to understand your space before you begin to renovate it. How might the dimensions of your blueprints help you design your bathroom arrangement, for example? How may the natural light levels from the main window also help you construct an open space for your dining environment? Can you limit the space your staircase is taking up by removing said installation and opting for a spiral alternative? These questions are worth asking, because properties are much more flexible than you may consider. With a solid designer at your side, you’ll notice this truth every day.

With this advice, we hope you can renovate your home well, sidestepping the usual challenges you may begin to face.
