Last month, we introduced the first in a two-part series of tips for successful renovations. This article outlines the essentials for understanding your needs and thinking about your renovation project . Let’s continue this month with the aspect of planning.
Although planning a renovation project involves many steps, here are the 5 main ones:
1. Meet a designer
To make sure that your project is up to your aspirations, it is important to have a professional designer accompany you in every step. Thanks to the information collected during the reflection stage, you will be able to communicate your expectations in a proper way.

A professional designer will think of every little detail of the project, those little things you might forget. In addition, she will use her creativity to create aesthetic and functional spaces.
Your designer will accompany you in all stages planning and you will benefit from his knowledge and advice.
2. Develop the concept
Using a three-dimensional (3D) drawing software, the designer will model your project. This will give you an excellent overview of the renovations before starting the realization. Visualize the set will allow you to validate the mood and style of the room.
3. Realize the development plans
Realizing a two dimensional (2D) layout plan is important to validate space constraints and ensure that the concept is feasible.
4. Choose the materials
The choice of materials is an important step in the realization of your renovation project. Each element deserves special attention:
