Home Renovation Budgeting Guide – Under Construction

Whether you’re just adding a coat of paint to a room or embarking on a complete makeover, renovating your home can be exciting and rewarding. We all have dream home projects that we would love to make, but it’s important to understand the costs involved before we begin. You don’t want to end up with a half-finished piece because you’re way over budget.

Tiles can create amazing spaces in your home. HomeTiles has tiles for every project, from bathrooms and kitchens to floors and exteriors.

We have developed a cost guide that you should consider for any renovation project. Use our tips to simplify pricing and planning for your next renovation.

What kind of renovation are you planning?

Of course, depending on the size of your project, the costs can quickly add up. Therefore, it is important that you stick to a plan of what you want to do. Whether it’s one room, the whole house, or just the flooring, decide what you want to do and stick with it to keep costs affordable.

If you’re considering a larger order, speak to a member of the team as you may be eligible for certain discounts to help manage your costs.

Once you’ve decided what you want to achieve, it’s time to price your renovation. We recommend getting a quote from a retailer first and comparing some prices. You can then create a budget that suits you.

Tile and material costs

There are many things to consider when estimating your project: decorative materials, tools, lighting and fixtures, carpets and flooring. HomeTiles meets all your tiling needs with quality ceramic, porcelain and natural stone tiles.

When considering tile costs, it pays to carefully weigh the cost of each tile type. If you buy in bulk, you can probably cut costs. We calculate the price per square meter of our tiles. This makes it easier to price and plan for exactly the quantity you need.

We have a mix of commercial essentials to ensure you have everything you need to start tiling your home. From sealants and adhesives to tile coatings and spacers. If you are laying the tiles yourself, we will be happy to advise you on the tools required. However, if you want the utmost satisfaction from HomeTile, you must hire a professional to install the tiles for you.

Important price points to consider.

Besides tiles, there are other costs to consider when renovating your home. Below is a list of costs to consider.

  • labour costs

  • This can be one of the biggest expense items, especially if you hire professionals to do the work. Labor costs may include plumbing, electrical work, carpentry work and possibly a tiler!

    We work with craftsmen every day and of course you should consult your dealer before hiring them for any project. We recommend checkatrade.com for reliable trade reviews and testimonials.

  • allow

  • Depending on the size of your project, you may need to obtain permits from local authorities. For example, if you want to build an annex or outbuilding, you will likely need a building permit as well as any other necessary permits.

  • design fee

  • It may be in your interest to hire a professional designer for your project. Not everyone has the time or the creative eye to plan and carry out a home renovation. Based on the choice of colors, tiles and design features, a professional designer can create a complete mockup for your renovation.

    Hiring a designer comes with an additional cost that you need to factor into your spending. Whether you’re planning on renovating your kitchen, bathroom, or your entire home, costs can vary based on the level of service expected.

    Services that keep your costs down.
