In Bathroom, Design, Home, Kitchen, Renovating Tips Posted

The renovation process can be a tricky one to navigate – Our experienced and knowledgeable team at Perini Kitchens & Bathrooms can guide you through the entire process, from design straight through to the completion of your home renovation, making sure it is as fuss-free and enjoyable as possible!

To help get you started, here’s what you can expect through each step of your kitchen, bathroom or whole home renovation:

Inspiration & Research

Get started on your renovation journey by creating a list of your needs, wants and inspirations. Are you planning a bathroom renovation? Take a close look at your existing bathroom and take notes of what works for you right now in terms of the room’s layout or existing fixtures. Also make a note of the items that are NOT suitable for you and your lifestyle: Do you not use your bathtub anymore? Could that space be better used in another way? The same applies when you are planning a kitchen renovation; taking notes of the elements of your existing design that both are and are not performing is the very best way to create your design brief. Include your own ideas, preferences and design inspirations in your notes to create the perfect design brief to discuss with your Builder.

Book your in-home Consultation

The next step in your home renovation is to contact us at Perini Kitchens & Bathrooms to schedule an in-home consultation. Our friendly team will arrange a visit with you in your own home where we will discuss your project brief as well as measure and inspect the areas in need of improvement. 

Deciding on a Budget

During your in-home consultation, we will also assist you in setting a realistic and comfortable budget that is in proportion with your desired outcome. This can be further explored with recommendations from our Building team as to which options will best suit your needs as well as tie in with your project’s budget.

Design Documentation and Quotation

After your in-home consultation, we will create complete design documentation for your project, inclusive of all drawings required to accurately depict and communicate your new design as well as a written quotation. Your quotation will detail each and every element that has been included in your bathroom or kitchen renovation for a simple and straight forward approach. We will also include a copy of our insurance documentation for your peace of mind, together with an HIA Construction Contract. The HIA (Housing Industry Association) is a residential building, renovation and development industry association that has developed standard contracts to ensure the safety and security of all parties involved, so you can rest assured that your project is in the best of hands!

Fixtures & Finishes Selection

The project included a new kitchen, bathroom and laundry, as well as a show stopping open plan living and dining area, pictured above. The owner’s incredible collection of indigenous artwork is used as a feature throughout the home to create a truly unique interior that has been completely custom designed in accordance with the family’s lifestyle. 

Our detailed written quotation will also specify all finishes and fixtures included in your design, giving you a complete and fixed price to work with. Here, we can make any adjustments you require, from changing elements of the design to mixing and matching your selected fixtures and finishes.
