Renovation Extras Not To Forget

Renovation Extras Not To Forget
  • Opening Intro -

    Whether you're ripping out the old and laying in the new or tinkering with what you've already got, your grand renovation plans likely involve a great deal of excitement and energy.


That’s great, as restyling your home is a wonderful and creative journey. However, leaving the glamor to one side for a moment, there are some small yet incredibly worthwhile little adjustments to make as you’re architecting the far larger project of changing your home interior.

Listing these below, here are the unsexy yet useful renovation extras that you ought to remember when setting out on a restyling mission.

Efficient, Clever Design

New designs should focus at least as much on ergonomics as on style. Take the kitchen, for example.

You may never pay particular attention

  • to an ungainly gap between your dishwasher and the sink,
  • the limiting appliance placement through bad plug socket installations or
  • the marathon in steps you often make between your food preparation platform and the trash can

But, believe us, building your kitchen with corner-cutting ideas at the core will save you untold hassle.

Cost-cutting Features

From solar panels to water-saving toilets, low-carbon lightbulbs to double-glazing and valuable insulation, if you’re getting anywhere near the foundations of your house, you should take a long think about measures you can take to reduce your long-term costs or to make your house more economically attractive to future buyers. It might add to your workload, but saving precious money while saving the world is a pretty decent incentive to go the extra mile.

Renew Aged Objects

Again, if you’re taking up the floor, moving the boiler, digging into skirting boards or smashing through walls, you’re going to be uncovering the network of veins and arteries that have likely been lurking beneath the surface since your house was first constructed. Oft-forgotten items such as sump pump switches can benefit from switching and upgrading, as detailed at, which costs you very little cash when compared to the damage of flooding caused by a faulty old model.

Even if you’re just renovating a room, the work you have planned is probably forcing you to vacate that room of all furniture and belongings stored there. It is a golden opportunity to declutter your home, taking stock of the items that have languished under the bed or at the back of cupboards for far too long.

It might be time to think about a yard sale, give items to the needy, or simply make a run to the dump. A new attitude should always accompany your new style: you should keep what you need, and let the past go.

You may be thrilled at the prospect of taking a sledgehammer to a wall you’ve always despised, or the captivated by visions of sophisticated loveliness you expect to achieve post-renovation. While all this is well and good, don’t allow this excitement blind you from the other real yet often overlooked benefits to redesigning your home.
