When it comes to the interior design & decor of your home, we at Kitchen Design & Renovations cannot understate the importance of doing your research before hiring contractors to help you execute your dream.
What to Keep in Mind Before You Tackle a Kitchen Renovation
A well-planned and carried out renovation can add value to your home, transforming its ambience and elevating your interior’s visual appeal. To make sure that you get the most bang for your buck, this blog reveals 5 things to keep in mind that will ensure that your renovation is carried out without any unnecessary hassles. Be sure to go over these points with potential contractors before hiring your dream team to be sure that they fit the bill.
1. What are Your Service Offerings & Areas of Expertise?
How specialised or comprehensive are their services? Will you be able to consult with one company for all your needs, or will you need to find several contractors to meet all your needs? Who will act as project manager in order to communicate your needs clearly to all parties concerned and report back on progress? It is vital that you know who will be responsible for what so that you can be on top pf any issues that may arise before they become unmanageable.
2. How Much Importance Do You Place on Quality of Tools, Material & Workmanship?
Avoid contractors who place too much importance on sourcing the cheapest materials and labour, as cutting corners usually comes back to haunt you later on. This is not to say that you should pay exorbitant prices to see your dreams realised, just remember that you tend to get what you pay for.
3. What Kind of Reputation Have You Gained from Previous Clientele Over the Years?
Investigate your potential contractors by checking out their website and social pages to get a sense of how their previous clients feel about the word that they have received. Companies with too many negative reviews are better steered clear of.
4. How Will You Ensure That The Project Meets Its Goals Within Budget?
Your biggest responsibility is clarifying the scope of your project and deciding on a budget. Once this scope has been set in stone, establish a timeline and clear processes for managing changes to the scope and financial needs of the project. The last thing you want to deal with is a pile of unauthorised extras slapped onto your final bill without warning.
5. Remember; If It Seems Too Good To Be True, It Probably Is.
Be wary of fly-by-night providers who offer you the earth and demand huge deposits up front. All that glitters is not gold, so be sure to do your homework before you make your final decision and trust your instincts; if something doesn’t feel right, then don’t commit.
