Being prepared for your villa renovation consultation

To make the most of Characterise Renovations’ valuable service we suggest you come to the meeting prepared. Being realistic and honest will serve you and your villa renovation in the long term!

  1. Prioritise your villa renovation – list and separate your ‘must haves’ versus ‘nice to haves’
  2. Decide on the greatest impact – which single change about your villa renovation will have the biggest impact in your life? Is it a separate living room for your teenagers or creating a spacious open plan area everyone can enjoy?
  3. Set a realistic villa renovation budget – go over your numbers and set a range you are comfortable spending. Having some parameters at the outset avoids spending money drawing plans that end up outside your budget
  4. Timeframe – do you have a strict deadline you require your villa renovation to be completed by? Could you live in the house during renovation?

At the conclusion you can expect to leave with a clearer idea of what is possible for your villa renovation and what will work well for you. From here Characterise Renovations is happy to recommend architects to commence concept sketches to begin the exciting process of renovating your dream villa.
