Transforming Your Space: How to Prepare Your Home for Remodelling.

Are you ready to breathe new life into your home? Planning a home remodelling project is an exciting venture that requires careful preparation to ensure a successful outcome. In this blog we will guide you through the key steps to prepare your home for remodelling. 

Define Your Vision

The first step in any home remodelling project is to clearly define your vision and inspiration for your project. This is a great time to make a list of what you want to achieve from your renovation and what your key goals are for the space. Do you want to increase your home's functionality, create an open plan space, or just refresh? Your vision will serve as the foundation for all your decisions moving forward with the project and also provide a structure for the companies you choose to support you through this journey. 


Perhaps the most important part of the process is setting a realistic budget. Googling the costs associated with a project of your size is often a good starting point to see whether it is doable and also ensures you can account for unexpected expenses. It is very important to establish a budget that achieves all your hopes and dreams but that also provides a safety net for unforeseen circumstances. 

Find the Right Professionals 

Hiring the right professionals with the right experience can make all the difference in your remodelling project. It is essential that you choose a reputable design team like ARC Design Services. Make sure you check reviews and references, view previous projects, accreditations and awards and communicate your expectations clearly. 

Create a Timeline 

Once you have gathered your team to successfully deliver all parts of your remodelling process, work together to create a project timeline. A well-structured timeline will ensure that everyone is on the same page and can help prevent delays. At this point, it is also worth including extension periods in case everything doesn’t quite go to plan, additional work is required, or the weather doesn’t go your way! 

Planning Permission 

The next step is securing any planning permission that may be required, as this can often be a timely process. Make sure you allocate an adequate amount of time for this and be prepared to potentially have to make amends to your initial plans.

Space/Temporary Living Arrangements 

In any remodelling work, you will need to clear the area of furniture, belongings, and personal items. Depending on the size of your remodelling project, you may need to make temporary living arrangements. This could involve staying with friends or family, temporarily renting or living in portable accommodation on the grounds of your property, or setting up a temporary kitchen and living space within areas of your home that are not involved in the remodelling.
