Home Renovations Brisbane is a rewarding but overwhelming process. It is important to go into renovations with a clear plan and understanding of what is involved, without this it can be very stressful. Expand Renovate has many years worth of experience, so here are our house renovating tips and questions to ask yourself for home renovations that you should not forget.

Timing your Renovations

It’s imperative that you don’t rush into home renovations too quickly, for it to be as stress-free and easy as possible, it’s important to get the timing right. 

Factor in your lifestyle, family and engagements. Do you have children who need to be supervised while you’re with the builders? Or older children who have end of year exams that will be impacted by renovations? Or is it around the holiday season? 

Also, working within a very tight schedule is never a good plan, you have to allow time for unavoidable and unforeseen challenges along the way.

Do I need to relocate during my Home Renovations Brisbane? 

It’s important that you find out if you can live at your house through the renovations as soon as you can so as to not impact the plan. This can have major implications to the viability of your Home Renovations Brisbane because if you can’t live in your house while renovating, you will have to source another space to relocate you and your family. So, talk to your builder about the living situation to find out as soon as possible.


Don’t get carried away with the excitement that comes with renovations. It’s important to keep your vision realistic and feasible. Take the space you are working with and incorporate that into your plans. For example, say you want to extend your one storey home, yet you do not have the space to do so, maybe think about extending vertically and add a second floor? This is where talking to a Builder will be very helpful, as they can use their knowledge and experience to help you come to a realistic decision.

Can I make changes mid – project?

 As with every home renovation, you make a huge number of decisions while the project continues. But what if you want to change your mind about something? Variations in the plan can happen but it’s best to talk with your builder about any changes as early as you can. Most Builders will allow changes in the plan, but depending on the variation it may not be possible.
