Things That Will Go Through Your Head When Renovating
1. “HOW EXCITING, WE’RE FINALLY DOING IT!”
For the majority of our customers, a renovation is not something they decided overnight. Taking the first step to practically ripping your house apart and starting again is not an easy step so when the plans are finally in place and the work starts, expect to be overwhelmed with excitement!
2. “WOULD IT HAVE BEEN BETTER TO START WITH THE KITCHEN OR THE BATHROOM?”
Be prepared to go without cooking and showering facilities for a little while! Whilst renovating you’ll be first in line at the ATM or escaping the newly created atmosphere in your home. As part of your renovation, UrbServ can provide project management services to ensure the least disruption to your life as possible.
3.”SHOULD WE JUST HAVE MOVED OUT AND RENTED A HOUSE?”
After a month without a kitchen or a bathroom, it becomes slightly more difficult not to wonder why you didn’t just move out! Just keep telling yourself that camping inside your own home is a nice little adventure and try to keep the mood lighthearted as much as you can.
4. “WTF WERE WE THINKING?”
Our house wasn’t that bad in the first place right? Wrong! There will be many WTF moments throughout the works, like ‘how could there possibly be this much dust’ but you’ve got to keep thinking of the light at the end of the tunnel.
5. “THE BATHROOM’S FINISHED, REALLY? THE BATHROOM’S FINISHED!”
Do a little dance, you’ve got your first room back! As soon as you hit the first milestone with a room finished, everything will start to get easier. Just look at how great it looks!
6. “WAIT, WILL OUR FURNITURE STILL LOOK GOOD?”
It’s worth thinking about this before you start the project. Will you still want to keep your furniture once everything’s finished? If not – get rid of everything before you start.
7. “THE END IS NEAR!”
As the project wraps up, you’ll definitely be more aware that the end is in sight. You go back to the level of excitement you had in the first stage of the reno.
8. “THIS WAS SO WORTH IT.”
Take a walk around your beautiful new home – all of the negativity, drama and second-guessing now becomes redundant because you’re now living in your dream house. All your hard work has paid off and we couldn’t be prouder to see the transformation complete.
