How to save money on large-scale renovations

There’s no avoiding the fact that large-scale remodels will have a financial impact. But with the right planning and a few tips and tricks, you can control costs more easily. Today, we’re looking at how to reduce the costs of your project.

First, where not to save money

When faced with a large project, it’s tempting to cut back on labour costs by taking on renovation work yourself. Unless you are experienced and qualified, it’s best to leave this to the professionals who can create high-quality, long-lasting finishes

After all, imagine spending a significant amount of time, that could’ve been used elsewhere, and money, just a step back and realise things don’t look quite right. Or worse, getting stuck in and realising you’re out of your depth.

Low quality materials don’t just look worse, they might be less hard-wearing and less suitable for your space. You may be able to find a happy medium or use higher quality materials but save money elsewhere.

How to control your renovation costs

Create a (realistic) budget and stick to it

It’s important to research the work and materials needed for your project and create a budget with some wiggle room. Otherwise, you might find yourself with some unexpected expenses along the way. If you have a good team to help, they can advise about potential costs.

When it comes to reading quotes, always check exactly what materials are going to be used and make sure you understand where the numbers are coming from.

Ask for several quotes

You might be surprised by how much quotes from different companies vary… or you might find they’re very similar. Either way, don’t choose the cheapest for the sake of it; make sure to research the company, find examples of their work, read reviews, and think about the quality to price ratio.

Work with local, recommended companies

Having the right team in place to execute and manage your renovation project is key. From the architect who creates the drawings to the construction team that brings them to life, working with people you trust to do a good job saves time and stress, as well as money.

Local project managers, construction companies, interior designers, and more might also have connections to preferred suppliers who offer discounts or the best value for money.

Think about when to carry out your renovation

If you’re remodelling a house you currently live in, consider when the best time for the renovation might be. If you need to move out, even for a few nights, it will be more expensive to find somewhere else to stay in peak season.

There are also work commitments to think about; renovating when you’re busy in other areas of your life can be stressful and mean you don’t stay as on top of everything as you’d like. Alternatively, consider hiring an experienced project manager to oversee the work for you.

Work out your priorities

If you find yourself needing to cut costs as the planning stage progresses, consider what the most important areas and features are for you. It might be that the most costly spaces aren’t the best areas to save money on. For example, expanding a certain room might be more beneficial for quality of living than including expensive finishes in other areas. Knowing your priorities will help you make the right calls.
