How to renovate a house
If you are one of those who have decided to buy an old house, inherit a property or need to renovate your home for many years, do not worry: no matter how bad some spaces look, everything can be improved.
The best we can do when planning a reform is to evaluate what we want to do with time, ask for estimates and ask what type of work is required and how many weeks or months of work each replacement involves. There are three key issues that, when analyzed, prevent mistakes and unnecessary expenses.

If we are thinking about economic and simple reforms, the budgets are more limited and, the times of work, more reduced. But more than once, especially in the case of kitchen renovations, we underestimated the deadlines and the costs and then we found ourselves with a difficult problem to travel.
You must assume from the outset that a “radical change” in your home will not be economic, because a major remodeling is often expensive. There are ways to spend less if you plan things well and learn which arrangements are more expensive and which require less investment. From there, according to your desires and possibilities, order your priorities and move forward.

House reforms: what you should know
Reforming a house is not something that can be faced from one day to the next. There are several issues to evaluate in detail:
The fundamental thing when planning a remodeling is to have clear your priorities: think about what you want to achieve. It is not the same to reform only one bathroom that to make a comprehensive reform. Nor is it the same to make a traditional reform (raising walls, etc) that opting for the dry work and cut execution times and budget. If we are going to modify the distribution of the house we should consult with an architect and also define what materials and coatings we want to put in each place.
If the renovation is a simple change of face, without throwing walls, lifting floors or making structural changes, the thing is simpler. But, even so, bear in mind that, inevitably, a reform -especially if in bathrooms, kitchens or laundries- usually demands changes in water inlets and drains, in pipes, in plugs and points of light and in coatings.
One of the main excuses or factors that discourage us when starting work at home is time. As fast as it may be, a remodeling always alters the routine and order of the home, making it difficult to find the ideal moment. But doing a “refresh” at home renews energy and totally changes a space.

If your house is small and you want to enlarge it, there are small tricks that help us create much wider spaces: take advantage of the outside space (like a small patio or terrace to enjoy with the family) or I grew up, adding a second level.
Keep in mind that the extensions are not all external. If the house has many environments and partitions, it is advisable to eliminate some to have large spaces, which will make the sense of spaciousness within the house multiply considerably, creating a much more welcoming and social.
If the height allows it, it is important to raise the ceilings to expand the space, but having analyzed well where the facilities will be passed.
The small environments can be reset with good decorating tricks, which give the feeling of a much wider space. We share some keys to decorate a small kitchen or a small bathroom.
