Redoing Your House: Where to Start

Many of us are turning our minds to do up our homes for 2022. Whether you want to focus on one room or work your way through the whole property, this is going to take a lot of planning, organization and work to benefit from the final results. Here are just a few ideas that could get the ball rolling.


If you’re considering renovating your home, now is the best time to get started. Renovations take a lot of time to bring to life, so the sooner you get started, the sooner you’ll see the results. First, you need to consider what types of renovations you’re interested in. Extensions, en suites, skylights and more are all popular options. Once you know what you’re interested in, you then need to request planning permission. Planning permission is required to gain permission to actually go ahead with your renovations. 

Failing to get some could result in you having to revert your work later down the line, which is a waste of money, time and effort. If you gain planning permission, it’s time to start considering your budget. You may need to save to be able to afford larger scale renovations. 

During this time, also start looking up potential architects and contractors who will carry out the work for you. It’s a good idea to check reviews to make sure you choose someone reliable!


You don’t necessarily have to create new spaces in your home to make it more practical and enjoyable. Instead, you can consider refurbishing what you already have. Whether that’s refurbished kitchens, refurbished bathrooms or anything else. Consider the spaces in your home that are looking a little dated or worn down. 

Then, search for inspiration on how you’d like them to look. Places like Pinterest, interior design magazines, interior design programmes and websites are all a good place to start.


You don’t have to invest a lot of money, time and effort to really make your home look good as new. As long as your living space is in good condition, you can see things look great through a little decoration. Something as simple as giving your rooms a fresh lick of paint, repainting doors, repainting door frames or repainting skirting boards can really add a breath of fresh air to your rooms. 

Of course, painting with bolder, darker or brighter colours can be more difficult to get right. An even coat and clean corners take practice. You can always make things easier for yourself by hiring a professional to take the work off your hands. Remember, cover anything in any room you’re painting that you’d rather didn’t get covered in paint. Small flecks fly off the roller while you’re painting, so it’s best to use covers where possible.

These are just a few areas that you might want to consider when it comes to redoing your house throughout 2022. Hopefully, some will serve as a good inspiration and can help to get the ball rolling on your interior design ventures.
