What’s The Best Order For Renovating A House?

If you are planning a house remodel, you might be wondering what the best way is to approach this. In particular, what order should you renovate a house?

Rest assured that Outlast Builders has got you covered! In this blog, we will explore the best order for remodelling a house.

Let’s get started!

What to Renovate First in a House?

When renovating a house, the first thing to tackle is any potential structural issues that need fixing. This can include recladding to improve the home’s insulation and weather-tightness. With the leaky home epidemic in New Zealand still in full swing, it’s not surprising to find that many homes in the country require recladding. Other structural issues that should be addressed include replacing/repairing ceilings and walls.

Best Order for Remodelling

Once structural issues have been fixed, you can proceed with the renovations. A recommended order of work for home renovations is:

  1. Walls – if you plan on painting your walls or replacing wallpaper, this should be one of the first things to do. If you plan on creating an open-living space, knocking down walls is probably one of the first things you will need to do as well. 
  2. Flooring – revamping your flooring, no matter the room, should also be another top priority when remodelling your home. This means that you can update your floors before the addition of furniture and appliances that will likely get in the way.
  3. Kitchen, followed by other rooms – once the walls and floors have been renovated, you can then move onto remodelling each room. The kitchen should ideally be the first full room to be renovated; after all, it is one of the busiest areas of the house. As a result, renovating it first means that you can enjoy your remodelled kitchen sooner rather than later.
