Planning a refurbishment is an exciting time. It is your chance to create the space you have always wanted.
Refurbishments in Oxford need careful planning, based on our extensive experience please find key things you will need to think about before you get started.
Knowing what you want
Having a clear idea about what you want before the work starts will save yourself a lot of time, money and stress. We are not so much talking about wall colours but more so the stages within a project where decisions can’t be easily reversed or altered, for example; the exact layout of your new bathroom. Some of us know exactly what we want and others require more inspiration, Lynch Brother Homes are always happy to provide options and expertise when assisting within your new project.
It is very important to make sure your plans are possible and that you seek the necessary permission at the earliest stage to avoid delays. Lynch Brother Homes will be able to advise you on this and often will find clever solutions to something you thought may be impossible. We can also let you know if your project falls under permitted development or guide you through planning permission and building regulations approval.
Know your budget
You should know from the outset how much money you have available and so the question should be more about where these funds are allocated. We would always work with our clients to have a clear idea of what they want, advise on what is possible and then adjust these plans to suit the budget if necessary.
References and recommendations
A good builder always has good reviews, asking your nominated builder to enable you to speak to past clients should never be to much to ask. This is why here at Lynch Brother Homes we are always happy to provide our reviews and even put you in contact with our past clients who have carried out similar projects in Oxford.
The final details come first
We are used to thinking about lighting and connectivity as the final finishing flourishes, here at Lynch brother Homes we always ask the exact requirements and use of your new space. Where do you want sockets, lights, BT points, TV points, AV controls? We will help you think carefully about how the room will be used creating the end result you desire.
We hope this has helped organise your thoughts, enabling you to start planning your refurbishment. If you would like to find out more about how Lynch Brother Homes can make your refurbishment plans in Oxford a reality, please do get in touch.
