  • 10 Ways to Save during a Renovation - Renovation Blog - Renonation.sg
    unnecessary debts Thus having a realistic budget helps to ensure that you spend within the scope of renovation work In fact it is the first step in creating a simple spending plan for your renovation needs For instance I know that I should be spending around 40 grand after determining my renovation scope Based on my savings of 20 grand I will need to get a home renovation loan of another 20 grand Hence I will be mindful that once I spend beyond 40 grand I will have to scramble to find money from else where However the budgeting doesn t stop there Once the renovation project has started I will be keeping a close watch on the amount spent and also look out for unprepared expenses I will also be forecasting whether I have enough money for the renovation in the following months too 2 Be clear on needs and wants Once you have a budget to adhere to you will have to make choices and prioritize between your needs and wants during the renovation A need is something that your renovation project must have in order for a home to be functional A want is something that you would like to have in order to enhance your home and it may not necessary be functional To cite an example getting a door is a need for any home renovation project However installing a designer door made of the finest material and finishing is a want By distinguishing between your needs and wants you will be able to rein in your spending during the renovation and strike a good balance between them 3 Do It Yourself D I Y You should carefully scrutinize your scope of renovation works and determine the areas which you can D I Y A general rule of thumb is that you should leave the more specialized tasks which involves gas electrical structural and plumbing works to the qualified renovation professionals For instance you can save money by taking on simple tasks such as painting or putting up simple shelves However beware that you might end up spending more money to recover from your mistakes if you are someone who is not good at D I Y Therefore always do your homework and look up the internet for instructions 4 Compare quotations prior engaging the renovation professionals I have reiterated this point a couple of times in my previous posts Don t be lazy and make sure that you compare the quotations from different renovation professionals By comparing prices chances are you will be able to save quite a significant amount 5 Purchase own materials or supplies If possible get your own materials such as paint switch covers lights and bathroom fixtures for your home renovation This allows you to control the cost of your materials and ensure that you will be spending on only what will be used 6 Refurbish and reuse Rather than demolishing structural elements or trashing stuffs which are still in
