As the economic uncertainty rumbles on in the Eurozone, you may be considering moving some investment capital into a renovation project for your home in West London. If you want a high quality finish and look, then it’s best to work with local expert residential architects who project manage your renovation. Here are just four reasons why you should always work with a local project manager and residential architect:
1. Experience In Styles
Whether it’s interior design, renovation and building work or project management, West London residential architects have a wealth of experience and are essential to any smooth running renovation project. You should harness their design skills, regardless of whether you are trying to create a modern kitchen, a vintage lounge, a retro living space or something entirely unique. Experience teaches all of us to handle specific situations in a certain way.
So if you are met with any issues during the construction or planning phases, quality residential architects offer solutions that allow your renovation to progress as intended and on schedule. Their expertise on how to combine styles will also be invaluable, as you don’t want to end up with a new layout or reconfigured space that doesn’t look like it belongs to your period property.
2. Professional Finish
If you’re not very experienced in carrying out renovations in West London iconic neighbourhoods such as Mayfair, Chelsea, Kensington or Holland Park, carrying out any work yourself usually leads to inferior results. Appointing a professional architect means you end up with a professional finish, and gives you an come back option if there are any issues to address – which could add enormous value long after your project has finished as well as reducing stress. Once the building work is complete, the quality of finish is the most enduring element of any renovation project and is what makes the difference between a home you are happy with and a home that you’re truly proud of.
It might be quite a challenge to arrange and coordinate all the different experts involved in a renovation project – your architect, interior designer, your local builder and specific trades such as carpenters, plasterers, plumbers and AV specialists to schedule works on your home and make sure dates work in sequence with each another. Residential architects project manage renovations all the time, schedule design stages and should project manage all elements related to the design of your new property. You won’t have to worry about any of this as a result. Design + build companies (such as TylerMandic) all have the plumber, builder, property planner, interior designer etc. under one roof. This saves you valuable time, money and stress over the course of the project and in the long run. You are also a lot more likely to complete your renovation on schedule without any major setbacks. Combining project management with design experience ensures you have the best professionals to work on every element of your property renovation.
4. Achievable Time Frame
If you’ve long been craving for your home renovation to be completed, you won’t want to waste any more time once the work finally gets under way. Professional residential architects give you achievable time scales, estimates of how long the renovation work should take and which elements need to be completed and when to coincide with all the trades on site. Usually, all this is achieved in a much shorter time frame than what you would be able to achieve alone. With larger projects, this precise knowledge of time creates substantial savings and can improve rental yields. You’ll also be able to plan when your renovation will be ready to enjoy – and for you to entertain friends and family. This certainty makes the process of moving in much more straight forward, often a lot more cost effective and certainly more enjoyable.
