1. Budget, plan and layout

‘Set your budget and plan your products, layouts and fittings early on – and don’t change your mind!” says Josh. “Changes made mid-project will often blow the cost out significantly and can often de-rail even the best laid plan.”

2. Leave the pipes alone

“Don’t move existing plumbing or electrical fittings. Often it is changes to plumbing and electrical work behind walls that add complexity and cost to your renovation. On the flip side, a perfect layout adds value to your home, so if it needs to move, move it!”

3. Find your perfect fit

“Order all of your products and fittings early on. Do this before you book in your tradies. It doesn’t cost anything for products to sit in your home waiting to be installed, but tradesmen sitting around your home waiting for products to arrive will!”

4. Get what you deserve

“Invest in quality fittings, not just the cheapest available, as you want all your hard work to last the test of time. Repairs and trade call backs can get expensive.”

5. Be enlightened

“Never underestimate the impact fresh and well positioned lighting will have on your finished renovation. In the bathroom, you want to focus your lighting on areas around the basin and mirror. In the kitchen, the stove, sink and entertaining spaces should be the focus. Don’t forget to look for energy efficient LED options as this will save you money long term.”
