We’ve established a 5-step procedure over the years to ensure that every project works well and is completed on time and within budget.
We start by asking our clients to envisage their lives in the finished house and describe how they want to interact with it.
This 5-step procedure is applicable to any large-scale property renovation project, including:
- Converting a house into apartments
- Loft conversions and extensions Converting two units into one
- Renovating all or most of a property’s rooms
The first step is to Each space/room should be defined.
Knowing what each room in the house will be used for and who will use it is critical to create a design that works for everyone while still appearing lovely. For all of our projects, we produce 3D designs, and space delineation is always the first step.
Step 2: Approval and planning
Once the design is complete, the client approves all components of the project to ensure that everyone understands what has to be done and when. Preparation is essential, and we always make certain that the legwork required to prepare each room for renovation work is completed before we begin.
Step 3: remodelling
At this point, all remodelling work is completed on the old space to accommodate the new design. Depending on the scope of the project (whether it is a loft conversion or an extension), we will also ensure that the home is watertight again by installing new roofs, walls, windows, and doors.
Step 4: Finishing
Depending on the project (whether it is a loft conversion or an extension), the initial element of this stage is to ensure that the home is water tight again – this includes installing new roofs, walls, windows, and doors. Once the property is watertight, we plan to complete all interior work such as plastering, doors, electrics, and plumbing.
Fixtures, fittings, and finishing
This is the final step, which involves everything from wallpaper and painting to kitchen and bathroom installation. The property is then clothed with all of the furniture and furnishings before being returned to the client.

PAPHOS HIGH-END HOUSE RENOVATION & INTERIOR DESIGN
We believe that renovating your home is unquestionably exciting. From locating a suitable home to renovate to the finer nuances of increasing the thermal efficiency of the ‘new’ house, here is all you need to know before you begin your house renovation project.
The first decision you must make is whether you want to totally restore a building to its prior state, albeit with a’makeover,’ or whether you want to significantly change its overall size or internal structure. Of course, it is possible that your proposed project will have elements of both types of renewal, such as making changes to a property while restoring it to its original character and appearance.
It is extremely typical for a property to be purchased with the explicit intent of profiting from its subsequent sale following renovation, however this potential is usually included in the property’s price. This means that whether a property is purchased at auction, through a sealed bid process, or by another method, prudence should be maintained.
RENOVATING YOUR NEW OR EXISTING PAPHOS HOME
At the very least, you should devote sufficient time to being acquainted with the home improvements in question, so that you can build a thorough awareness of topics such as how light enters the property.
If you are planning a large project, it is best to consult with a trained architect, architectural designer, or, if necessary, a structural engineer in order to avoid certain frequent pitfalls. Such professional assistance is especially important if the building you seek to change is a Listed Building.
One critical early decision, for example, is whether you will need to seek for planning clearance for your project. It is also critical to create a project plan at the start of the process to guarantee that all tasks are completed in a logical order.

FAQs on House Renovation
We’ve compiled a list of useful renovation FAQs to ensure you’re well-informed when it comes time to make decisions about your renovation.
When making changes to plumbing, drainage, or electrics, you may need permission or, at the very least, an inspection by the competent authority. Consent is not required for the immediate replacement of old and worn out fixtures. All structural alterations require approval. Laws differ from state to state, so verify with your renovation builder.
Waterproofing is required in areas where there is a water outlet, such as the shower recess, bath, taps, and drains. You must waterproof your shower recess to a height of at least 1800mm. The extent to which you extend the waterproofing on the floor is determined by whether you use a pre-moulded foundation, whether the shower recess is enclosed, and the material of your floor.
You certainly can. You must examine the condition of the existing tiles, the added weight of the new tile, and the appropriate adhesive. If the previous tiles and grouting are not thoroughly cleaned, the adhesive will not bind. For better adhesion, use a sander or grinder to remove the glaze off the old tiles.
On the ceilings, use a low-sheen paint (also known as eggshell or satin) and on the walls, a semi-gloss. These are washable and moisture resistant, preventing the growth of mould and mildew.
Bathroom resurfacing is a quick and simple way to make your bathroom seem brand new. Use a trustworthy company that employs skilled and qualified tradespeople. The ultimate effect is contingent on rigorous preparation work, such as chip and scratch removal and grout restoration.
Freestanding baths are a great way to make your bathroom stand out. The bath itself may be more expensive, and additional plumbing may be required to conceal the pipework. Freestanding baths typically take up more space, and if the bath is constructed of stone, your bathroom floor must be solid enough to support the extra weight.
A drop-in or hob-mounted bath is typically installed in a frame against a wall or as an island. It must be level in order to drain effectively and strong enough to handle the weight of the water as well as a person.
There are many different designs of baths on the market, so test for comfort by sitting in it to check the size and depth are appropriate for you.
A mixer tap blends hot and cold water before it reaches the spout and allows you to change the temperature of the water as it flows, rather than after it has already entered the basin.
Heat pumps are widely used. They normally come with an extractor fan built in, and as long as your ceiling is of standard height, you will experience the most warmth from the lamps. Radiant floor heating is a more opulent choice. Under your bathroom flooring, electrically heated coils or tubing give heat from the ground up. Another reasonably priced option is a plug-in heated towel rail.
An extractor fan quickly eliminates steam, moisture, and odours while also preventing mould formation. Make certain that the air is vented to the outside of the house rather than into the attic, where moisture will harm the woodwork.
Yes, there are rules and regulations in Australia that govern the placement of switches and outlets in respect to water outlets. To comply with the Australian/New Zealand Wiring Rules (AS/NZS 3000:2007), you must hire a professional electrician. Consult with your renovation builder about how they can help you with these recommendations.
These systems heat the water just when it is needed. When compared to certain storage systems, it can take a few seconds for the hot water to start flowing, and they tend to supply water at a lower pressure. The size of the heater is determined by the flow rate in litres per minute, which is determined by the number of hot water outlets served by the heater rather than the number of persons in the household. A home with two bathrooms, on average, will require a flow rate of 22-24 litres per minute.
Using a water-efficient dual flush toilet saves an average household 30,000 to 40,000 gallons of water per year.
The WELS (Water Efficiency Labels and Standards) star-rating system is used in Australia to identify a product’s water efficiency, and all WELS-rated products will bear the star-rating label. The maximum rating for taps is six stars, three stars for showerheads, and four stars for toilets. The more stars a product has, the more efficient it is with water.

Whether you need an architect to assist you renovate your home depends on the project you’re planning, the potential obstacles, and, in many cases, the property’s period style.
If you’re planning a simple extension on a normal 1930s home, you’ll need plans drawn out for the builder but won’t need complete architectural services. Some designs are available ‘off the shelf.’
If you are planning a significant project, such as a two-story extension on a period property in a conservation area, you may need to hire an architect to check that the plans and materials are appropriate for the property.
You must apply for planning authorization with your local government. Visit their online page or phone them to request any flyers or books that describe the process. Once you’ve completed your preparations, you’ll need to fill out their forms and pay them the appropriate amount of money to apply.
Certain home improvements require planning clearance to ensure that one neighbour does not change their home at the expense of another. Some regions are designated as conservation areas to build that, while all properties are now built in magnificent Cotswold stone, no one builds an orange brick eyesore next door!
Building codes and limitations on home improvements are becoming increasingly stringent. They are enforced by the local authorities primarily to guarantee that home improvements are carried out in accordance with agreed-upon health and safety standards, as well as to safeguard both the owner and the property. Building laws are more challenging in regions where people will actually be living since the local government must ensure that people can escape safely in the case of a fire and do not dwell in a building that does not have adequate insulation or drainage.
You can only budget for different renovation and construction expenditures because they will alter throughout your renovation project. Ideally, get three quotations from different businesses, builders, and/or tradesmen. Make sure the bids break out the cost of supplies and labour, as well as the amount of time the project will take and a description of what will be done. Obtain a definite price for the work to be done and never give the company, builder, or tradesman more than 5-10% of the money up front. Pay in arrears if possible.
Property renovation project managers can assist in obtaining cost-effective quotations, coordinating the renovation project (people, materials, etc.), and ensuring that any difficulties are resolved swiftly and efficiently. However, because you will likely need to pay them on a daily/weekly basis, you must ensure that they will add the equal value.
Renovation projects can be located by browsing specialist websites on the internet, your local newspaper, and driving about your neighbourhood for projects that may be worth pursuing. For additional information, see our Finding a plot or Renovation Project page.
This is determined by your level of experience as well as what you are legally permitted to do or not permitted to do. Many renovation projects are within your ability level if you are skilled at measuring, have an eye for a straight line, and can understand directions. However, jobs such as gas, electrics, and windows are legally required to be performed by qualified tradespeople, therefore you should hire professionals. Other jobs, such as plastering, take time to complete and may be better left to a professional. If you’re genuinely interested, there are courses available at your local institution as well as privately managed training centres.
The most time-consuming aspect of renovation is often organising the money, locating and screening tradespeople or home maintenance firms, and obtaining/comparing quotations. Small DIY projects, such as kitchens and bathrooms, can be completed in a week or so, while larger projects, such as extensions, can take four to twelve weeks and comprehensive property renovations can take six months from start to finish.
Look for a renovation project that you have time for and know people with whom you can collaborate. It’s pointless to embark on a significant renovation if you have full-time jobs, young children to care for, and little spare cash – unless you’re willing to undertake it in stages and perhaps live in a jumble and mess for years. Make sure you thoroughly investigate what needs to be done, get quotes evaluated independently, and maintain regular contact with tradespeople.
There is no such thing as the “best property” to renovate. Pre-1930s properties were built without restrictions and are therefore more expensive and take longer to renovate. Because construction is comparable from property to property, properties built in the 1930s, 1950s, and since 1980 are easy to renovate. 1970s houses might be more difficult to renovate because they were not necessarily built with high-quality materials, and many renovation works may necessitate the removal of existing work before proceeding with the renovation.
Whatever the condition of a property in need of renovation, no matter how complex or easy it appears, a structural survey is required to provide cost estimates for the work required. You wouldn’t buy a car without a MOT, so don’t buy a house without one.
Renovation projects can be funded in a variety of ways. You can save money, take out an unsecured loan, a loan secured against your house, extend your mortgage, or apply for specialist renovation mortgages. It is critical to seek independent financial counsel in order to determine the best strategy to fund your project.
If the renovation project is large and you cannot live in it while it is being worked on, you can either sell your property and rent for a while, or you can take out specialist renovation finance that allows you to stay in your own home until enough work has been completed for you to sell and move into your renovation home.
Depending on what you want to pursue, there are certain grants available. Sometimes you may acquire insulation at a discount, and it may be less expensive to go through a firm rather than buy the insulation and do it yourself. Other grants are available depending on your age and the type of tenant you are.
Buying at auction is great as long as you have inspected the property several times, had a survey done, established you can arrange a mortgage against it, checked the legal paperwork, had a deposit ready for auction day, and have a firm limit in mind.
You may either put it back on the market through an auction or an estate agency, fix it up to a fair standard so that you can sell it, or see if you can turn it into a buy to let until you can sell it for a profit or at break even.
Absolutely! You should only purchase a renovation project after you have seen it several times, had a comprehensive survey done, checked the legals, done precise costings for the renovations required, and ensured that you have the necessary renovation in place.
It’s a good idea to get specialised insurance that covers materials and pricey equipment on-site, difficulties with tradespeople, weather damage, and so on.
You can sell your primary home tax-free if you reside in it for a reasonable period of time. If you acquire, renovate, and sell real estate on a regular basis, the taxman may infer you are running a company. If you intend to acquire and sell property for profit, you should always seek experienced property tax counsel.
You certainly do. If a property (or land) is zoned for commercial use, it must be rezoned for residential use. Any questions about change of use should be answered by your local planning authority and a legal firm.
This is a specialised engineer that investigates big structural difficulties such as renovations that may impact terraced property foundations or problems with property subsidence.
Renovations to listed properties are subject to numerous limitations, such as the materials used and what must be retained. Before renovating for planning permission to renovate a Listed house, you must first discuss your intentions with your local planning office.
