From the initial face to face meeting, Lifestyle help our client’s answer the questions that everybody should ask before undertaking a renovation or home extension. You will need to identify what you want to achieve and what you are prepared to go through to achieve it. Write down a list of all the things you like about your house including the physical features as well as the intangibles such as memories, the location and neighbours. Then make a list of the things you would like changed in your current situation. These lists will help you to clarify exactly what you are looking to achieve through your extension or renovation.
Some questions you might like to ask yourself…
- 1. What are the features you like or dislike about your existing home?
- 2. What parts of your current home work well….and what parts just don’t work well at all?
- 3. What are your family’s needs now and what will they be in the future?
- 4. Is there a particular style or look do you want after your home extension or renovation is complete?
- 5. How do you live as a family unit?
- 6. Do you like open plan living….or more separate spaces that can be closed off from each other?
- 7. Do you entertain a lot or like outdoor living…If so, you will probably want a natural flow from the internal living spaces to the outdoor living areas.
- 8. Do you want a single storey or 2 storey home?
- 9. Do I really want to endure the dirt, dust and sometimes stress of a renovation (although it is a short time in the overall scheme of things)?
- 10.Am I confident in running the renovation process myself or do I need the help of an expert?
Lifestyle can help you no matter what you want to achieve with your extension or renovations so give us a call and let us help you to improve your lifestyle.
