A kitchen renovation Adelaide project can creep up on you when least expected, one day you are eating your breakfast innocently and notice some broken tiles in the kitchen and the next thing you know you are having a brand new kitchen fitted!
Surrounded by debris, workmen, a stressed partner, and dust is not something you wanted to do, but now it’s begun you are going to have to see it through. You could always take a couple of week’s holiday and leave everything up to the professionals; then when you get back all calm and sun-tanned, you can walk into a beautifully finished house.
If you are confident they can do the job and it is a trustworthy company then this is a good idea, a reputable work crew has the skills and training to get the job done well, and you are likely to just get in the way if you stay at home. Before you go, however, you will need to sort out a few things to ensure there are no nasty surprises when you return. Here are some handy tips to enable the home project goes well even without your supervision.
In every work crew, there is a foreman, manager, or boss, whatever he is called this is the person you want to give any instructions or requests too. Let him know you know he is in charge and if anything happens he is the one responsible. You don’t have to be rude about it, but you have to be firm. The first thing to do before you leave is to put some floor covering down to prevent the workmen leaving dirty shoe prints all over your living room and hall carpet, and cover furniture for protection against dust or damage.
Store all your valuables away, although the company might be well-established and you have a lot of faith in them, all the workers won’t be full-time members of staff and you can never guarantee who is coming in and out of your home looking for an opportunity. It’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your home and personal belongings.
Breakages are possible too if fragile items are left out, mishaps happen all too easily. If you have a home that has lots of unique and valuable items on display teamed with a gang of big hefty guys carrying heavy objects, then it makes a lot of sense to wrap those valuables up and store them away somewhere safe during the renovation.
A garage or shed might be suitable as long as they are waterproof and can be secured, otherwise look into renting a storage unit for your belongings until all the heavy work is completed. Rent a storage unit until the kitchen renovation Adelaide project is completed and ensure your possessions are safe and sound.
