Your renovation specialist will work with you to develop a feasible design that falls within your budget. If you have a limited budget, your specialist will be able to advise you design considerations, materials and fittings that will help to keep costs down, while still improving the presentation and quality of your home. The Refresh AU team has carried out a variety of projects within hugely ranging price ranges: home office conversion for as little as $13,450, through to complete home renovations exceeding $355,000. Whatever your budget, we’ll work with you to come up with innovative home improvement solutions.
Projects which only require minor updates, which will not interfere with the original structure of your home, generally won’t require council consent - although it’s always best to check this with a renovation specialist. If your project includes structural changes or additions, changes to electrical work, plumbing, gas works or drainage; council consent probably will be required. Your renovation specialist will advise you if this is the case, and can take care of the planning and application process for you. Keep in mind that, if you live in an apartment, you will likely need the permission of your body corporate to carry out renovation works.
There are a few things that we recommend considering as you begin the renovation planning process. Firstly, it’s important to figure out your priorities. While we can relate to anyone wanting to include hardwood flooring, chandeliers, skylights, a home gym and spa room in their design - it’s best to start with the basics and work your way up from there - particularly if you have a budget to stick to. From there, do some research, and put together a collection of inspirational projects that you would be interested in imitating within your own home.
Working with a company who can take care of the design and build will help to make the renovation process smooth and efficient. They will be able to advise you on choosing materials suitable for your location (e.g. fire-rated materials/materials that won’t corrode in coastal locations etc.), ensure your design is in-line local regulations and maintain consistency across the design and build.
