Things To Consider Before Renovating Your Resale Flat

Before starting any renovation project, it’s important to assess the condition of each room and think about what kind of look you want for your home – this is especially so for resale properties. There is no doubt that small renovations can add value to your resale flat merely due to its improved appearance. But think about the wonders a large-scale renovation can do. However, if you’re thinking of undertaking larger renovation projects, it would probably be worth engaging in the services of a professional interior design and renovation expert or a resale flat surveyor who can ensure that everything goes smoothly. But if you are planning to take matters into your own hands, here are a few factors to consider and look into so that your renovation project is a success.

1. Budget

Before embarking on any renovation project, it is pivotal to decide on a practical budget. When it comes to resale flats, oftentimes, there may be several elements in the old apartment that require extensive changes. Add to that your personal interior design ideas and lifestyle needs, and the renovation cost is bound to increase. Also be sure to factor in the possibility of any mishaps and come up with a realistic budget. To help you, interior design companies like 96 Interior offer affordable renovation packages. From a 3 room resale renovation package to a 4 room resale flat renovation package, there are cost-efficient options out there to ensure that you do not break your bank while trying to bring your interior visions to life.

2. Damp Proofing

Damp proofing is a must when it comes to preventing moisture from seeping into your walls and foundations. If not rectified properly, it can be a real problem as it can cause moulding and eventually damage to your property. In resale flats, this can appear as ceiling leaks or external wall leakage, especially in areas like the bathrooms. Survey your flat for any cracks, pipe defects, and damp spots, and be sure to inform your interior contractor so that they can take the necessary steps in solving the problem.

3. Painting

We all want our home to look sharp and make a lasting impression. One of the best ways to do this is with a quality paint job that blends perfectly with the theme of the property. Since renovations can cost homeowners a sum, try to determine how much a simple paint job can do in elevating your home interior. Since it can help fix small cracks in walls and ceilings, and does wonders in making any space look brand new, you just might be able to cut back on renovation costs with a quick paint job.

4. General Repairs & Miscellaneous Works

Is the plumbing system in the kitchen not working optimally due to a rusty water pipe? Perhaps you plan on keeping the previous owner’s kitchen cabinets but the doors aren’t childproof as they tend to slam shut? Depending on the scale of renovation and budget, determine which aspects of your home need to be repaired or reworked to have it cater to your needs. After all, you’d want the renovation to be finished to perfection without leaving out even the smallest of issues unchecked. Our 5 room resale renovation packages include carpentry, plumbing, and other miscellaneous works along with masonry and professional interior design services. Since our renovation packages cover everything, you don’t have to source for services offered by carpenters or plumbers for general repairs – our team of contractors will get them done for you.

5. Reconstruction

Take some time to assess the condition of your home. Are there areas that require reconstruction of old built-ins or damaged walls? If so, plan accordingly so that you can complete the job efficiently. In case you’re not able to figure out the necessary repairs and reconstructions, it’s a good idea to seek help from professional interior designers like 96 Interior for your home renovation.
