Are you on the fence about getting your kitchen remodelled? Kitchen and bathroom renovations Perth can get expensive. Sometimes, it might not be worth it. The trouble is, how exactly do you tell when this is the case?
An unscrupulous renovation firm would push you to get a remodel done, no matter what. Here, we’re different. Today, we’re going to give the general guidelines of when kitchen and bathroom renovations Perth aren’t worth the price.
One reason is if you have no clue why you’re remodelling the home, or if it’s not a good reason.
Kitchen and bathroom renovations Perth shouldn’t be done just because you watched a remodelling show and want to do the same. Your neighbours getting one isn’t a good reason, either. If you can’t give a logical answer for why the remodel is happening, it is best to reconsider it.
If you think you can do it because you saw it done on TV, step away. This mindset will only cause you a long list of grievances with no one to blame but yourself.
If you’re thinking of doing it because there’s a good deal on, walk away.
Renovation companies might offer discounts during the low seasons, but it’s never a big one. It’s also rarely, if ever, all-inclusive. At the most, you might get a discount on the labour and materials – and the latter only if they have a supplier that sells it to them in bulk, or if you provide it yourself.
In general, bargain bin prices for renovations don’t exist. There’s always going to be this significant number at the end of the day, especially if utilities need to be rerouted.
Money spent is not always money gained. If you think you can recoup the cost, whether in utility, convenience or on a resale, why not?
If, on the other hand, the remodel doesn’t promise any of the above, reconsider it. If you don’t gain anything by the rebuild, why bother? It’s just money spent that you’re not getting back, especially if you renovated to match a trend that will fade away by the time you sell the house.
If you’re environmentally conscious, consider the amount of waste generated. A remodel creates a lot of waste material.
Finally, can you and your life take it? There’s a reason there are horror stories about the damage that a remodel can do, especially if it’s always happening.
