Things You Should Know Before Renovating
CategoriesHome Renovation

Fed up with insufficient space? How about storage space, cramped rooms, uncomfortable living situations, or worn-out fixtures and fittings? Or maybe you think your house just needs a makeover to be more stylish, elegant, and lovely? 

Whatever it is, home renovations and extensions can be the perfect solution to spruce up your home. At Bayside Extensions, you have come to the right place. We have decades of experience with delivering exemplary home renovations and extensions. Before you renovate, though, there are a couple of things you need to know. 

1). Design Ideas

While it’s easy to crowdsource design ideas from different Instagram posts, this could have you triple-guessing everything. Sure, most renovation inspirations will come from somewhere on the internet or a magazine, but try and narrow down the overarching theme that you wish to achieve.

Typically, you may be drawn to traditional, modern, classical, industrial, art deco, or any other theme. Whichever one you’re leaning towards, narrow your design references down and then talk to an expert who can revolutionise your current space with your dream in mind. 

2). Achieve Optimum Natural Light

Natural light is so important to consider when renovating or extending your home. Will this be obtained by installing additional windows, or skylights? The configuration of the space is also important to consider. For example, if you are hoping to create an open-plan living and kitchen area, how can you maximise the amount of natural light for each zone?  This is where the experts come in. Bayside Extensions are experienced in creating innovative design solutions that can help you achieve your goal.

3). Permits

Depending on the extent of your project, permits may be required to be obtained prior to building works commencing. Luckily, Bayside Extensions have years of experience dealing with Councils and Building Surveyors and, therefore, can handle this process for you on your behalf. 

4). Avoid DIY 

To achieve the best results possible for your dream home, it is always recommended that you avoid going down the DIY route. Home renovations and extensions can be very comprehensive and engaging with professionals is your best option.
