Renovating Your Home: Is Now the Right Time During COVID-19?

With the restrictions put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there seems to be a blurred line between what is and isn’t prohibited. Many homeowners who are either working from home or idle from their job at the moment will want to take this newfound time to do things around the house that they never had the opportunity to do before, and are probably wondering “can I renovate my home?”. The answer? Yes; with builders, tradespeople, and hardware stores still available and open, people are more than welcome and even encouraged to be renovating your home during this time.

It’s Business As Usual (From A Safe Distance)

It’s not a rare sight to see individuals on social media posting about their home improvement ventures, and it’s almost impossible to not be influenced or inspired by what you see online. So, with all this free time, renovating your home seems to be a time consuming and productive task to be doing during this period.

That being said, renovating your home can be a daunting task, especially during the COVID-19 outbreak, where it is illicit to do anything that isn’t deemed essential. With online resources readily available, it is now encouraged that if you don’t need to leave the house, you can seek consultation online for various renovation projects. Many professionals will now have more time on their hands than they normally would – and they would be more than happy to set up a virtual consultation with potential clients. Discuss your renovation project with them, ask questions, and if you have any concerns about social distancing and how they will be maintaining it on site, share it with them.

Not Ready Just Yet?

If you are not ready to renovate your home quite yet, the idea does not have to be put on the back burner! Instead, this time can be used to plan out potential ideas for future projects. Starting Pinterest boards, gathering images, commissioning architects or designers to further discuss plans, and putting in place a budget are all necessary steps in renovating your home before delving into a big project. 

With many options within reach, renovating your home during this time can be simple and rewarding.
