25 Sep PROPERTY STYLING PREPARATION GUIDE FOR HOMEOWNERS
If you’re intending to renovate your home this spring or this summer, you have a lot of homework to do. That’s because a makeover project will have vital consequences when it comes to your lifestyle, your happiness, and your finances. Here are tips about the things you need to consider when you makeover to sell or when you makeover to stay.
Plan ahead of time; it’s your saving grace
Did you know that it takes about 30 to 60 days on average to renovate a kitchen or a bathroom? Did you also know that depending on the nature and scope of work to be done, renovation can take months? Establish timelines by planning the specifics of a renovation job. Contact a property stylist when you plan so that you can get professional opinion, a realistic estimate of the timeline, and organise tasks in the right order.
Create a design; it’s your framework
There needs to be utility in the design you create. First, what is the renovation for? Is it to add market value to your home, or is it for you to live more comfortably? The design you create should reflect your purpose. If you can’t decide on how your renovated home should look like, reach out to the BG Property Styling team for initial appraisal of your property.
Set a budget; be prepared to add to it
There are two ways you can do this. First, you can set a reasonable amount at the onset and make the makeover project work around with it. Second, you can contact BG Property Styling and schedule an initial appraisal. Keep in mind that value-added work, while it makes you spend money, increases the value of your home. In effect, your returns are maximised.
Be involved; it’s your project, too
Because you already have planned about how the renovation job will proceed, you should be prepared to make a series of decisions based on that plan. In addition, depending on the nature of the job, it may be necessary for you to arrange to live outside of your home throughout the duration of the project. If the latter happens, do not hesitate to visit the renovation site.
By now, you realise that there’s much more to home styling than meets the eye. There’s that need for you to be alert when it comes to decision-making, and on the property stylist’s part, there’s there’s a shoulder to lean on and someone on your side. All of these are integral for a property makeover project’s success.
