If your home is looking tired and dated, or the rooms no longer suit your family’s needs, or you simply crave a more modern, contemporary decor, it’s probably time to think about some renovation work. Not only will this bring renewed vibrancy to your home, but it will make better use of your space, introduce more energy and water-saving fixtures, and make it more comfortable.
And, if you’re considering selling in a few years, it will add value and visual appeal to your property.
Rather than concentrating and directing all efforts into one area of the house, consider the bigger picture and look at a multi-room renovation package (for example, the bathroom, kitchen and laundry undertaken altogether). It saves time, reduces costs and inconvenience and, because everything is done at the same time, it’s less stressful for you and your family. In the short term, you will have a more beautiful and enjoyable home. Longer term, you’ll reap dividends and it’ll prove a great return on your investment.
Here at Lavare, our expert team have the technical knowledge and creative flair to complete your multi-room renovation. By refurbishing your rooms together, we’ll link both the colour scheme and design to deliver a consistent aesthetic in line with your vision. We can provide and install quality European and Australian-made bathroom and kitchen products to bring your dream renovation to life. Our showroom is designed to not only showcase these products, but also has model display rooms to give a realistic indication of room sizes and the finishing touches you can expect from one of our renovations.
How to approach your multi-room renovation
From our ‘one-stop-shop’ showroom in Claremont, we can guide you through the planning and process of a multi-room renovation and offer recommendations on everything from colour palettes and materials to tapware. If you are going to be putting your house on the market, it’s important to keep colour schemes neutral. While bright or trendy colours may be enticing and vibrant to some, they won’t suit everyone’s taste. Likewise, it is generally better to steer away from overly fussy or intricate designs and details, unless of course this is part of your home’s overall style.
A multi-room renovation does not need to be a complete overhaul for all areas. For example, hard-wearing kitchen tiles may not need to be replaced, or a powder room may only need a ‘refresh’ without any major changes to the layout or tiling. Consider repainting walls or re-grouting tiles as these are cost-effective ways to brighten a room at minimal cost. Similarly, minimising the need to move plumbing will save you money. However, if you are going to the effort of renovating your home, it is better to get exactly what you want rather than compromising and regretting it later.
What products to use
Even though you may not be looking to sell your property for a few years, here at Lavare we suggest that you use quality products from the outset. It does not pay to cut corners or scrimp on finishes, materials and products — you will see a much better return on investment by installing quality from the start. Use household brand names (such as Villeroy & Boch, Duravit, Hansgrohe and Astra Walker), that are respected and trusted. These will add value when it does come time to sell, and these brands (and others we sell) generally have product ranges at various price points to suit most budgets.
