While home renovations can provide a thrilling, yet terrifying experience, they provide a great opportunity for homeowners to spruce up their homes, giving it that luxurious feel they truly deserve.
That said, as soon as most homeowners consider undertaking such renovations to improve the look and overall feel of their home, they realize that not all renovation projects are equal. There are high-end renovations that cost more upfront but allow you to enjoy the benefits longer, whereas others just allow you to recoup your initial investment.
Although a high-end renovation can be an expensive affair, it provides the highest return on investment over time.
Why are high-end renovations costly?
A high-end renovation, whether you are renovating a single room or the entire house is an expensive affair. There is no cheap way to go about it. For starters, you will need to hire a builder who is experienced in the type of work you need to be done.
A renovation firm that is experienced in high-end projects will combine detail oriented contracting services with innovative designs that breathe new life into your property. The builder will need to invest in craftsmanship to ensure customers are happy with the quality of work delivered. They will also need to invest in quality material, and put in a lot of their time and other overhead expenses to ensure the end result is met and goes beyond your expectations.
What is the difference between a high-end renovation and a basic one?
A high-end renovation is usually carried out by homeowners who intend on staying in their homes indefinitely. Therefore, their goal in renovating is to make their home look more appealing and feel more comfortable. As a result, they usually opt for high-quality items and services and usually end up putting a significantly high amount of money into the project. A high-end renovation means your home will require minimal repairs and maintenance, and it will last you longer.
A basic renovation, on the other hand, is mostly carried out by investors whose main mantra is; buy low, sell high. Therefore, their goal while undertaking a renovation is to save as much money on repairs to make their investment as profitable as possible.
What sets a high-end renovation apart from other types of renovations?
Beauty in details
No corners are cut or details left out when dealing with a professional high-end renovation. Both the workmanship and hardware used are of top quality. With a high-end renovation, it is the details, no matter how small, that matter.
A high-end project should use only the best materials available for a project.
Tips to consider when undertaking a high-end renovation project
Making your space flow
An important design trick to employ when undertaking a high-end renovation is to have a sense of flow throughout the home. Preferably, adopt an open space home design that flows from room to room. For instance, when designing your kitchen, dining area, and living room, consider using a similar palette and common materials.
Give a multipurpose room a purpose
Transform a multipurpose room into a play or hobby room. If, for instance, you are a wine aficionado, a wine cellar provides an excellent addition to your household. You should consider bespoke renovation services to suit your exact taste and requirements.
Use quality finishes
Another tip for achieving a magazine-worthy renovation is using quality finishes. If you can't afford to use exotic woods, you can always install wood finishes. Laminate wood flooring or porcelain tiles that look like wood provide an eco-friendly alternative to achieve a modern and upscale look.
Light is the foundation of a successful renovation. If you miss it, no amount of cushions or rugs will right it. That is why it's important to maximize natural lighting and airflow when making a good renovation. If, however, your home's orientation is less than ideal, you can still achieve a visually appealing aspect with professional design and landscaping.
Renovate with the future in mind
If you are renovating a home that you plan on living in for a long time, it is imperative that you create a floor plan that will work for 10 to 20 years from now. Remember that families grow up. Therefore, in the early years, you may want the nursery or kid's playroom under your nose, but as the kids grow, they may prefer some space that is within the home but somewhere they can escape to. In such a case, we highly recommend planning for multifunctional rooms that can adapt.
