Renovation Guide: Where to Start

Often the hardest part about renovating is working out where to start. There are so many different aspects to completing a renovation that it can be a bit overwhelming. We find that collecting inspiration images can help to ease some of those renovation jitters. Having a collection of images helps us understand your vision, which helps us to design your dream space. Even if it’s the smallest part of an image, every little bit of information helps. By narrowing down your vision, it makes it easier for us to quote for your renovation.

Inspiration to Look For

If you’re not sure where to start, here are our main things to look for:

  • Cabinetry – Style & Colour
  • Tiles – Shape & Layout
  • Benchtops
  • Room Layout
  • Paint Colours
  • Cabinetry Handles
  • Fixtures – Style & Colour
  • Overall Style

Pinterest

One of our go to places for finding inspiration is Pinterest. Its vast array of posts makes it the perfect location for finding images to help narrow down your style. We often turn to Pinterest to find inspiration for new ideas and styles to make your renovation stand out.

Start by having a look through our Pinterest page – Champagne Finish. We have saved boards of different rooms and features that we have found and love!

Instagram

Another online solution for trying to find inspiration is Instagram. The use of tags means you can search through posts of specific ideas. We also find that a lot of suppliers we use share some great projects that people have completed. Finding inspiration from suppliers can make it easier to replicate a certain look, as we are able to order the same items to complete your renovation.

Some helpful tags to look through are: #kitchenrenovation #bathroomrenovation #kitchendesign #bathroomdesign #interiordesign

Some accounts we love: @abiinteriors @tilecloud @threebirdsrenovations @beaumont.tiles @loandcointeriors

Books & Magazines

There are plenty of books and magazines that you can draw inspiration from, and can help to narrow down your vision. Sometimes searching online sends you down the endless bunny hole of options. Finding inspiration in magazines can often keep the research a bit more contained, and can avoid you getting more overwhelmed.

Some magazines we love: Adore Magazine, Kitchens and Bathrooms Quarterly
