Is The “Partial Renovation” Trend Right For You?
As a trusted construction company in Farnham, NBC Construction are often first to know about housing design trends and which types of projects are popular among residents. We’re no stranger to renovations, but we’re seeing an uptick in what’s been dubbed “partial renovations” where certain original elements are left untouched during the renovation process to enhance certain design motifs and create a brand new aesthetic.
Of course, the stunning results that can be achieved are not the sole reason for partial renovations, as taking this path can also shorten the time frame for work to be completed in as well as lower the budget the the project.
Carefully selecting which areas to leave well alone can really enhance a room and add to its charm – just ensure you choose wisely, so that the final result looks harmonious and aesthetically pleasing, rather than mismatched or simply unfinished.
If planned correctly, these projects can complement what you already have whilst refreshing areas that not longer suit your purposes, as well as leave you with an open-ended option; partial renovations can become over time renovations, where you fully complete things at a later date. This is especially useful for those on a budget, but who don’t want to live with a room that looks only half finished in the meantime!
Of course, whether partial renovations are right for you and your property depends on what the desire for a renovation stems from: design or functionality. Wanting a fresh new look for a room can be easier to achieve with clever decorating and minimal renovation, but the same results can be hard to achieve with functionality in mind, as such needs usually necessitate the movement of key elements and structures, such as sinks, fireplaces, doors, and more. Remember that looking to rearrange layouts of a room or change the floorplan will usually come with a price tag and time frame of a “deeper” renovation.
