Thanks to the projects we have carried out over the years, we know that carrying out a comprehensive reform is a complex process and that most of the time it is unexpected.

What do you need to know before renovating your apartment or house?

1. Make a list of your needs

Decide on all the changes you want to make and above all determine what improvements you want to achieve; for example, gain more space, make a brighter room, manage to transform unusable spaces into functional ones.

This list will help you when your head is full of ideas and doubts are not good companions in the decision making process.

2. Get a quote

It is important to put on an economic swath to know how far we are prepared to invest in reform. It will help you when the time comes to choose the materials and decorative elements because beyond your preferences in style, textures and colors the price will always be a variable to take into account.

3. Look for sources of inspiration

This is the most creative part and the one that surely everyone enjoys during the process of making reforms at home. Look for images, examples of other kitchens, bathrooms or cupboards to file ideas and proposals that you like and discard those that do not fit what you are looking for.

Social networks such as Instagram and Pintarest are two sources of inspiration where you can find many ideas. But also decoration and architecture magazines can help you.

4. Trust professionals to design your project

Once you have put all the above advice into practice, it is time to put yourself in the hands of professionals so that they can design your ideas and help you choose the best options in terms of both materials and space optimization. Thanks to your collected ideas they will be able to understand more quickly and concisely what you are looking for. The same with the numbers, since they will try to design a reform proposal adjusted to your initial budget.

5. Compare budgets and ideas

It is always advisable to compare budgets and ideas to be able to decide with greater certainty the most favourable option before starting to reform your home. Beyond the numbers, you should also evaluate the methodology of work and how all the people on the team are organized.
