What should be renovated first in an old house?

You may be tempted to break out the paint brushes and lay new carpet, but tackling structural issues first makes the most sense. Replacing outdated piping and wiring, addressing foundation issues, and ensuring water tightness should be top priorities. These tasks can be aligned with plans to reconfigure spaces. Once structural issues are resolved, focus on kitchens and bathrooms, as renovations in these hard working areas can dramatically transform the home.

-        Removing walls to create a modern, open plan layout.

-        Modernising bathrooms.

-        Renovating kitchens and increasing kitchen storage.

-        Rewiring electrical and installing modern lighting.

-        Upgrading plumbing systems.

-        Creating indoor/outdoor flow to deck and patio spaces.

-        Creating a cosy environment by addressing old joinery issues and installing heat pumps.

Your Style,
Your Budget,
Our Expertise

Refresh®’s process supports a bespoke design and build: a renovation tailored to your lifestyle requirements and taste. Your local Old Home & Villa Renovations renovation consultant will manage every aspect for you - working to keep everything on track.

Step 1

Briefing / Initial Consultation

The first thing your Old Home & Villa Renovations renovation consultant will want to know is what it is that you want to achieve through your home renovation. In this initial consultation, you can throw all of your ideas on the table - your consultant will then tailor them to your property and budget.

Step 2

Concept and Feasibility

With a clear understanding of your renovation goals, your Old Home & Villa Renovations consultant can arrange for an architectural concept to be drawn up. This allows your Old Home & Villa Renovations consultant to assess whether or not your ideas are feasible, and allows you to point out any changes you would like in the design - before any work begins.

Step 3

Working Drawings and Costing

Next, working drawings will be developed. These will take into account the engineering, structural, design and aesthetic decisions you have made. If you would like to make any further changes, now is the time to do so. From there, your Old Home & Villa Renovations consultant will present you with a fixed-quote as well as a contract.

Step 4

Build / Construction Stage

Finally, you get to witness your project transition from the page to your property! Every aspect of the build will be managed for you, allowing you to carry on with your everyday life. Your Old Home & Villa Renovations consultant will do everything in their power to keep your project on schedule so that it can be completed within a set timeframe and budget.

Step 5

Your Finished Renovation

The final stage is for your local Old Home & Villa Renovations consultant to ensure that all Council documentation is completed and you have the necessary Code of Compliance documentation. Congratulations – your renovation is complete!
