Go Design Solutions residential drafting services in the Sutherland Shire explain how to avoid overcapitalising on your home renovation
When it comes to home renovations, our experts in residential drafting design services in the Sutherland Shire know that it’s vital to set an obtainable budget for this major expense.
So here our residential drafting services in the Sutherland Shire share tips to help you avoid overspending on your home renovation:
Cosmetic renovation: When it comes to cosmetic renovations, ie. painting, replacing carpet or minor kitchen/bathroom works, the rule of thumb is not to spend more than 10% of the property value.
Structural renovation: For a structural renovation you should be spending up to 40% of your property value in terms of structural costs. On top of this, you may need to include architectural costings and residential drafting services.
Bathroom and kitchen: When it comes to your bathrooms and kitchen, you shouldn’t spend more than 2% of your property’s value on a brand new kitchen or bathroom fit-out. Managing the kitchen or bathroom renovation yourself is the best way to go, avoiding big kitchen and bathroom companies who charge from $30,000 upwards. Save money by being smart about the layout of these rooms and look for professional drafting advice.
Avoid expensive fixtures and fittings: If you don't have a high priced property, it's important not to invest in expensive, designer fixtures and fittings as this doesn't relate to the property's value.
Our residential drafting designers in the Sutherland Shire explain that it’s crucial to set your renovation budget so that you don't break the bank on unnecessary renovations that will not see any return.
