Cost Considerations for Your Sydney Home Renovation Project

25 October 2021

There are multiple important cost considerations to review before you begin your Sydney home renovation project. Whether you are planning major updates to your kitchen and bathroom, living room and entertainment area or outdoor deck and grilling space, there are specific costs associated with each project. The most expensive mistake that many first-time home renovators make when updating their homes is not calculating the cost of every stage of their renovating project.

Some homeowners also forget to accurately compute the daily and overall cost of labour. The prices of different building materials may also fluctuate before and during a renovating job. Other home renovators may attempt to complete extensive remodelling projects without a carefully planned budget.

They may also forget that miscalculations in spatial measurements and when cutting materials can lead to significant increases in home renovations costs. Not taking advantage of high-quality discount building suppliers can also cause home updating expenses to increase rapidly.

Important Cost Considerations for Your Sydney Home Renovating Project

Major costs to consider before beginning your home renovation project in Sydney include the following:

  • Kitchen and Bathroom Renovations. When renovating your kitchen and bathroom interiors, you may want to replace older fixtures, appliances and furnishings. If your plans include relocating sinks, bathtubs, toilets or dishwashers, have a reliable licensed plumber evaluate your needs for running new water lines and drainage pipes.

This aspect of a home renovating project can be quite expensive, and once the plumbing work begins, it is difficult and costly to change plans again. If you are adding a new bathroom to your home’s upper floors, the floor and wall structure must be strong enough to support heavy fixtures and tiling.

  • Living Room and Entertainment Area Updates. If you have plans to update your living room and home entertainment area, have your builder or contractor evaluate the condition of all outside walls. Even if your updating plans only involve renovations to the indoor sides of these walls, it is essential to have the exterior wall sides checked for any signs of cracks, crumbling or water leakage.

If any of these signs are present, the exterior stone, brick, wood or siding must be repaired before any work inside your rooms can begin. New insulation may also need to be installed in your walls, especially if you are replacing older windows and frames.

  • Improving Your Outdoor Deck and Grilling Space. When considering an update to your outdoor deck and grilling area, one major issue to resolve is the extent of new electrical lines that may need to be installed. Especially if you plan to add more kitchen appliances, audio-visual equipment and digital screens to this exterior home leisure space, more electrical lines and outlets will most likely be needed. You may also need more additional outdoor lighting for evening parties, family gatherings and other events.
