The Ultimate Guide To A DIY Room Renovation


When you complete a room renovation, there’s a probably a lot more to think about than you realise. If you’re changing the flooring or the light fixtures, you need to get a supplier. If you’re not completing all the jobs yourself, you may also have to think about hiring a designer or builder. There is certainly a cost involved and you’ll have to take into account how long it’s going to take. If you’re renovating the kitchen, this can be stressful because at least for some of the time, it will be out of use. Here are some simple steps to follow that will make the renovation easier.

Step 1: Choose A Budget

Most people spend between one and five thousand on a room renovation. However, some spend as much as ten. This usually means that, not only are they taking on a complete overhaul but they are also expanding the room. You’ll have to decide what type of budget is right for you to work with. If you want to lessen the cost, you should aim to complete most of the jobs yourself. For instance, there is no need to hire a painter when this is an easy DIY Job. On the other hand, there are some things we certainly do recommend you hire help for. If you are fidgeting with the electric, gas, or water lines, you will need the expertise and aid of a professional.

Step 2: Lay Out A Plan

The next step is to decide what you want the room to look like when it’s finished. You should also think about what you want from the space. For instance, you might be thinking about improving the quality of your life. In which case, you could be considering buying new tech. Of course, you may be more interested in style and decor. In that’s the case you should be focusing on buying new accessories for the room. If you like, you can converse with an interior designer. They might be able to help you get the effect you are after. Or, you could instead just look at a few design blogs. On these, you will find ideas other people have used for their own room renovations.

Step 3: Clear Out The Room

The next stage is to clear out the room that you are renovating. If you have a lot of furniture that you will no longer be needing due to replacements, you might want to get rid of it. You should look to use a furniture disposal service offered by a reputable company. These services are usually a lot cheaper than hiring a tip.

Or, you could take the furniture down to the local charity shop. But, you will probably have to arrange transportation of this yourself.

Step 4: Complete The Big Tasks First

The first couple of weeks will be spent laying down the new flooring and inputting new light fixtures. Again, you will probably need help with at least some of these jobs. They are not your typical DIY tasks.

Step 5: Adding The New Furniture

Finally, you can add the new furniture to your room. When buying new furniture shop around online for some great deals. Currently, we are at the end of summer so you will find some fantastic deals on furniture for a renovated conservatory. For other rooms, you might want to wait for the upcoming Black Friday sale.  

Once you’re finished, your new room is sure to look and feel wonderful.
