As you’ve probably noticed, Christmas is now only a few short weeks away so most major manufacturers and retailers have closed off for pre-Christmas building and installation work. But that means now is the ideal time to plan your renovation for 2016 and ensure your project is one of the first to be started in the New Year.
Because you’ve been clever and not rushed into your renovation, and the stress associated with a Christmas deadline, you’re in the best position to get the most from your designer and project management team come January when work will recommence. Interior, kitchen and bathroom designers are already creating projects that will come to life in 2016 and we know from our own experience that jobs are already being booked in for January and February starts.
Here’s the best way to begin the process: book an appointment with your kitchen, bathroom or interior designer pre-Christmas and begin to sketch out the “big picture” view of your project. Will it be one room or two? Or will you extend and renovate? Will you move the bathroom or kitchen from its current position? What possibilities exist for moving or removing walls to create larger or better-suited spaces? Do you have long-term plans for your home which need to be considered?
These are all questions your designer can start to consider now and use their expertise to find solutions to your unique challenges. It’s also a great opportunity to discuss budget and how this fits with your plans.
Get started on an ideas scrapbook – hard copy or online – and share this with your designer. Fill it with your ideal wish list of products, looks, designs, ideas, colours and more. The more information you can provide to the designer, the better the end result will be.
