kitchen renovation Glasgow

Property remodelling is practically a rite of passage for anybody who wants to get on or move up the housing ladder but has desires that
are beyond their current resources when it comes to buying a fully-finished new property. Run-down homes may be a wonderful deal, and
they can be a great way to stretch a budget and obtain more house for your money.

Renovation is not without danger for the unwary, however, and a newbie renovator may quickly get himself into trouble, particularly if they
jump into beginning work without first assessing the property’s structural condition and legal requirements.

1. Examine the structure’s condition.

The first step in any remodelling project is to obtain a thorough evaluation of the property’s present state. Those buying to renovate
should always commission a building report from a chartered surveyor, who will identify any necessary repairs and recommend further
investigation by specialist surveyors into any other issues that raise suspicion, such as infestation, subsidence or heaving, damp, or
drainage issues.

2. Submit a consent application (if required).

You should determine whether elements of your planned remodelling project need legislative approval as soon as feasible. You must
determine if the job necessitates:

Planning permission may be required, as well as approval under building regulations and a listed building permit (if applicable).

Applications may take many months to process, which may affect your choice of which projects to pursue. If you want to get started right
away, look for projects that don’t need planning permission, such as converting an existing garage or roof space or adding on to a home
that falls under Permitted Development Rights’ limits. Even work that requires building standards permission may begin after giving the
local authority’s building control department a 24-hour notice of intent to comply.

Most kitchen replacements within an existing kitchen structure will probably not require planning permission, but you should always check
with your local authority’s planning department before commencing any work. The relevant approval will be required for structural
alterations or the installation of a kitchen as part of an extension.

3. Examine the drains and service connections.

It’s a good idea to double-check that the current drains are in excellent functioning condition at this point before adding new demands.
Find the inspection chambers (manholes) and have someone pour various colours of food dye down the toilets and sinks to see what’s
linked to what and if any drains have collapsed and need to be dug up. You may need to move the drains anyhow if you’re expanding,
and now is the time to find out before building begins. It’s also a good idea to check the status of any existing septic tanks (where
present) and soakaways if there’s no mains drainage connection.

Take your time with your design.

You’re now ready to start working on your kitchen installation. Although kitchen design is a personal choice, we will walk you through the
elements to consider when designing your kitchen. The type of kitchen cabinet you select is a personal decision as well, although
extremely contemporary kitchens may look wonderful in new flats and houses as well as in old historical residences. Older homes benefit
from more conventional and cottage-style kitchens. Choose kitchen tiles and paint colours that contrast or compliment the colour of the
cabinets.

For a continuous aesthetic impact, use flooring and floor tiles that match the colours of the kitchen worktops.

Kitchen sinks come in a variety of forms and styles, so think about whether you need a single or double sink, as well as the various effects
that choosing between ceramic, stainless steel, or moulded sinks would have.

Small adjustments to design aspects may help you personalise your space. Kitchen taps and knobs for your kitchen cabinets should be
chosen with care, as they may make or break your entire design.

In the kitchen, lighting is crucial. The work areas should have enough light, but if you plan to dine or entertain in the kitchen, you may
want to be able to adjust the lighting. We can provide you with any design choice to fit your budget, taste, and living needs at Luke Lloyd
Builders.
