In recent years, globalization has also reached our homes, and we find similar decorative elements anywhere on the globe: the minimalist style, gray sofas, corners full of plants and white furniture are common in houses around the world,
A successful and personalized renovation should also reflect the style of the owners without neglecting the needs of the home. Houzz, the leading online platform for home design and renovation, highlights the key points to carry out a reform in a simple way, adapted to personal style and without going over budget:
Find the right professional
Renovations can be rewarding and fun, you just have to find the right professional. Hiring a professional is synonymous with a job well done, personalized and adapted to your needs.
Understand the needs of your home (and yours)
From the orientation of the house and the facilities to the lighting and distribution of the spaces, everything influences when planning a reform. Having the help of a professional at this stage will help you save time and energy and understand the viability of your project. A professional will know how to see the full potential of the spaces in your home and how to adapt them to your needs. During this planning stage it will be essential to maintain open and fluid communication with the professional.
Talk openly about the reform budget
It is important to set a budget and share it with the professional from the first visit. Talk about your aspirations and what aspects of your home are most important. Depending on your priorities, the professional will be able to adapt the project, model the layout efficiently and aesthetically pleasing with materials that meet your expectations and budget. Remember to reserve a part of it for any unexpected material or service. As a rule, the professionals at Houzz Pro recommend setting aside 10-15% of the budget for contingencies.
Share your vision of the project
Share your preferences and the style you like. Save your favorite photos and share them with the professional through your idea book. In this way, the professional will be able to analyze what type of elements, accessories and materials you like and see what falls within your budget. In addition, the professional will determine which items could be substituted for those that are overpriced and how superfluous expenses could be reduced.
Once the works begin, having clear lines of communication with the professional will be vital to keep the project on track, avoid delays and, above all, stay within budget.
