Renovation your Home

When you’re thinking about the Renovation of your home, you often think that you should start with the living areas. This is probably one of the biggest rookie mistakes you could possibly make. When it comes to renovating your home, you should always make your bathroom, especially if it’s not on the ground floor, the first thing you renovate.
This is for many reasons, but here are four of the main ones:

1. Damp and Mold

This sounds really gross, but it is so much more common than you could possibly imagine. Damp in the walls can be a major job and can affect more than just your bathroom. Mold can also be a major health risk, especially if it’s black mold, which can be a serious issue that needs to be solved fast. You can easily overcome this by renovating your bathroom first.

2. It’s Going to be the Biggest Job in the House, Hands Down

Your bathroom is going to be the biggest and possibly most expensive of all your jobs, which you might need some financial support for. Getting a personal loan is a popular financing option. With a personal loan, you borrow a set amount at an interest rate that is typically fixed and pay it off with monthly installments over a fixed payment period.

Not only will you be down a bathroom, meaning that you might be without for a couple of weeks or even have to share, but you will also have so many unexpected and large costs.

If your bathroom is upstairs, and you have a problem with moisture, there won’t be much point in doing the rest of the house as you’ll need to have the walls ripped out and replaced, as well as the ceiling and quite possibly the floor. There is no point in spending a lot on a lovely new kitchen or living room if it’s all going to get ripped up anyway.

3. Pests

This can be a big problem. A lot of households have this issue, but not many really understand the problem as much as they should. Not only is this a nasty shock if you find a nest somewhere like your attic, but it also creates a massive hygiene problem.

This is a serious issue and must be solved as soon as possible; otherwise, it can get out of hand very quickly. Discovering this might make or break a large renovation project, as some builders and contractors might refuse to work on the site due to the issue with pests.

4. Lastly, the Plumbing

Plumbing runs all over your home. If there is a problem with this, it can be a massive problem. You might need to get the walls torn out, the plumbing redone, which is a hugely expensive job.

The bathroom and the kitchen are the two biggest uses of the plumbing in your home, and if this goes wrong or there is a problem discovered after the kitchen has been fully renovated, the likelihood is there is going to be a heartbreaking issue that was also a waste of money.
