The decision to remodel a condo is an important one, and the project needs to be done right — especially if it’s a luxury renovation project.
For condo remodel ideas, it’s possible to go online and gather information from various websites. But most of them will be impractical for other locations.
Those considering significant condo remodelling projects are well-advised to call a luxury renovations contractor sooner, rather than later, in the project, to get the correct sense of what is possible with the particular location to be remodeled — for the budget the condo owner has in mind.
There’s no point wasting time and having one’s heart set on a particular idea if it simply won’t work, either for the space, the time or the money.
An experienced and professional remodeller does much more than simply perform the carpentry, plumbing, tiling, electrical and other work that needs to be done. Such trade professionals are a wealth of ideas for what would be best in a certain setting and for a certain budget. Using them to draw out their expertise and knowledge when they arrive to give the estimate does not cost any more, either.
A good luxury condo remodeling professional can take the idea clients have, and show them how they can accomplish that same goal for whatever budget they are working with, and the particular space to be renovated. Yes, a particular idea looks wonderful in the magazine, on the website or at a friend’s condo, and yes it may very well work in a different space — but it also may not, and there may be a preferable alternative the owners are unaware of.
Kitchens and bathrooms are usually places which are remodeled frequently in condos, they’re the two places you can find endless ideas for remodelling online and in magazines, and since they require specialized plumbing and electrical renovation work, it is all the more important that professional consultation be sought as soon as possible.
Do not hire a luxury condo remodeler who simply shows up, says yes yes and gives a price for the project. That’s not what he’s really being hired to do. He’s earning his pay by listening to the project idea, interacting with the condo owner to refine and focus the objective in the remodel, and to suggest, based on his experience and knowledge, viable alternatives.
Even if the project ultimately goes ahead as the owners originally envisioned it, the owners now know what the workable alternatives were, and why they finally chose the remodel they did. There is much less chance that halfway through the project major changes will be requested, adding unnecessarily to the time and cost of the remodel.
