Kitchens and bathrooms are the most overlooked places and people try to ignore amending them as they feel that nobody is going to peep in there. However, one should not forget that people compare your living room with your kitchen or bathroom designs and if it is not up to the mark they think you are just a show off or a bragger.
Renovation is important because like every other aspect of our lives, interior designs are too evolving with time. If you wish to live in the same vintage house that your grandfather left for you then it is definitely your choice but it will also wear away one day and all it will do is spoil your impression and reputation in front of your friends, loved ones and colleagues.
To prevent cost escalation one must be able to understand the fine line between reasonable and unreasonable prices. Many-a-times low quality material or fixtures are purchased at a costlier rate just because they look fancy. Same is the case with bathroom and kitchen renovations.
You should not buy a shower or kitchen faucets just because they look cool; what if they do not function properly? All these features should be carefully evaluated before finalizing the renovation costs or you will end up losing a fair amount of money on unnecessary things.
Types of renovations
Renovations are basically of two types; a total transformation by changing the entire layout and designs or a partial renovation by improvising the layout and designs which already exist. It depends completely upon your choice and renovation budget.
Kitchen renovations can be executed with smart planning and renovation cost estimation. Many times it happens that the storage cabinetry or pantry is not sufficient to accommodate your growing kitchen requirements and needs.
Therefore, you can demolish the entire cabinetry and install new cabinets and drawers with larger sizes. However, if one wished to simply change the look he can just change the finishing, decorations, etc. on the exterior part or can change the cabinet doors, handles, etc. which will definitely cost a lot less as compared to total change.
Bathrooms are easier to renovate as their layouts are mostly defined by lightweight fixtures and installations. Also, one can transform the total look of their bathrooms just by changing the wall tiles and smaller fixtures such as taps, faucets, showers, etc. Just fixing a well-framed large mirror can add a lot of life and charm to your bathrooms.
