1. Choosing a wrong company to handle your renovation
It is highly important to choose a company that understand your needs with designs you prefer. Eventually, it is your home, a place where you live in. Always talk to several designers or companies before deciding on the one to handle the job. While choosing, it is important to consider the quality of their workmanship, their reputation in the market as well as services they provide.

2. Choose everything only based on price
We understand that it is important to stick to your budget. However, do consider this home is a place to stay in for upcoming 10 to 20 years, or even longer. It is important to choose high quality materials and reliable companies to handle your renovation. This will save you time and hassles in the future, looking for someone to repair your built-in cabinets.

3. No timeline planned
Always plan your timeline for renovation work to complete the job. However, bear in mind that a rushed timeline is never good for your dream home. It is important to discuss thoroughly with your consultants to have sufficient time to complete the job. Also remember to set aside some extra time in case of some delays.
4. Having unrealistic budget
We all know that budgeting is a must when it comes to big projects like this. A lot of new homeowners tend to underestimate the cost of renovation, hence setting an unrealistic budget. Always remember that a bigger home equals to more cost needed for renovation. Spare some extra cash as back-up in case you missed out some parts in the planning or decided on something that cost more.
5. Zero research on the designs
Before starting the renovation project or even hiring someone, we highly recommend that you do some research online to understand what you want. As mentioned in previous blog, “What you should Know Before Kitchen Renovation?” you can always get some inspiration through different social media and show it to your interior designer or consultant. We also want to remind you to not go for extremely trendy designs, which will be out of trend in few years’ time. Always go for a timeless, classic and minimalist designs that will still be classic after decades.
