When Is The Best Time To Renovate Your House?


And here we are again at Sweet Blog, the sweetest blog online.

The place to be for all fans of the 'Home Concept.'


Today, we're diving into a topic that's probably crossed your mind more than once: When is the best time to renovate our house? It's a question that's more important than you might think.

It's a question that most of us find ourselves pondering at some point in life: Is now the right time to conduct a renovation or redesign our home?

It's a decision that carries significant weight for any household.

Besides the immediate (and technical) change, which is significant in itself, it also involves a considerable financial outlay. Therefore, the decision should be made after profoundly considering the many variables.

This article will review this question and offer some answers that hopefully make the most sense.

As always, later in the article, there will be a refreshing infographic presentation and a video summarizing its content.


'The Most Suitable Time To Start A Home Renovation Project - When Is The Best Time To Renovate Your House?'

Hop on.



1. When It Cries For Help.


The English philosopher Richard Whately once said:


"It is the neglect of timely repair that makes rebuilding necessary."


The most trivial scenario in which the need for immediate renovation pops out is when one sees it.

It's quite intuitive. There is no need for further elaboration to explain why.

We can all see when our wall's color began to peel off significantly and when the bath's ceramic started to crack.

Your role as a homeowner is crucial. All that is required from you is to keep your eyes open and pay attention to what is happening within your home. By doing so, you are taking the first step towards maintaining the comfort and safety of your living space.

It's a common human tendency to pay selective attention to what we are used to. This habituation of our home environment can make it challenging to notice visual anomalies that indicate the need for renovation. Being aware of this can help you overcome it and take necessary measures.

Therefore, our recommendation in this regard is that from time to time, you should zoom out a bit and examine your home design-wise with a deeper look. A look that will make you feel like a guest for a moment.

If you find it difficult to evaluate your home objectively, consider asking a friend to drop by. Their honest and independent opinion, free from the habituation you may have, can provide a fresh perspective on your home's condition.

His comments can help you grasp your home's actual condition and whether there is an immediate need for renovation. Remember, home renovation not only improves the aesthetics of your living space but also enhances its functionality and safety, making it a more enjoyable place to live.

pay attention!


Try to think on your own of other ways to help you pay better attention to your home's condition. The examples above are only intended to stimulate your imagination and thus help you answer the question: 'When is the best time to renovate my house?'

By the way, Let us be clear - when discussing parts of your house that need repairing or painting, we are not referring to small/insignificant areas. Our recommendations only concern at least 25 percent of your house's overall space that requires renovation. This is what we mean by saying - "When it cries for help" - as this title's paragraph.



2. Every Ten Years (Estimated).


Although the average time frame will obviously be determined based on your property's condition, it can still be roughly estimated that your home will require some renovation every ten years (Approximately).

True, it's impossible to set a precise time frame. After all, it depends on a wide variety of unknown variables. However, with that being said, Generally speaking, every ten years (as long as your house is indeed in daily use) is quite a reasonable time frame.

By the way, make no mistake. Suppose you decide not to follow this recommendation; it's perfectly fine. Just please be aware that it's impossible to maintain a high-standard home without renovating once 'every ten years.'

Let us emphasize again that the recommendation above is nothing more than our personal assessment. There may be a minor change here or there. The sole purpose of the "ten years concept" is to clarify a point.


The clock is ticking. Pay attention to the condition of your home



Like any other material asset in the world, your home is also degradable as time goes by; there is no way around it, no matter how hard you try. Therefore, in order to maintain a certain level of home quality, a significant renovation every few years is quite a must.

So, if you ever wonder when the best time to renovate your house is, the paragraph above should give you something to work with.





3. Accompanying A Unexpected Repair.


It's pretty unfortunate, but it happens to all of us:

No one likes it when an immediate need for a significant home repair pops out of nowhere. 

Imagine waking up to a flooded basement due to a burst pipe, or discovering a termite infestation that has weakened your home's structure. These are just a few examples of the many immediate home repair needs that can unexpectedly arise.

And more. Much more.


Now, consider the scenario of an immediate need for ceiling replacement. Despite the understandable frustration involved, you and your family will, in most cases, have to endure for a certain period of time and maybe even sleep somewhere else until these repairs are completed. Moreover,  repairers will run around within your home - which will likely look like a dusty and messy war zone - Causing you a headache. This is where the idea of a more proper home renovation comes in. If you can afford it, why not take advantage of this situation and consider a more comprehensive solution that not only addresses the immediate repair but also enhances your home's overall condition and value?


Take advantage of the repair momentum


If, in any case, you're heading to face some challenging times due to this much-needed/Unexpected renovation, wouldn't it be better to finish all the necessary repairs at once and be done with it?! 




4. Changes.


John F. Kennedy once said:


"The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining."


Our lives are full of change and exciting events. For some, we are prepared in advance, while others can catch us by surprise.

Some are even considered to be significant landmarks in our everyday family lifeline.

Of those we arrive at prepared, the most common one is Birth.

Naturally, birth makes any family expand, and as a result, the need for more home space increases due to the addition of another human being.

In such a case - or in a similar life-changing event bringing with it the need for additional free space - you may consider expanding your home. An expansion that will probably include a considerable renovation.

Such circumstances in need of additional free space are pretty varied. We're sure you can think of some on your own. The guiding principle is whenever such a need arises, you can deal with it with the help of renovation, as stated.

Moreover, you may be surprised to hear that not all changes take place in the real physical world. There are also mental circumstances that will make you want to create a new home environment and will require you to start a renovation process. Read more here about the emotional cycle associated with renovation.

Many of life's events can lead you to believe that significant change is indeed the right move for a particular moment. As mentioned, this 'Change' can be reflected in your home's renovation.

But, and it's a big 'But,' like everything else in life, it's all about the correct dose. So do yourself a favor and think things through before taking action so you don't get carried away, turning your house upside down every time you go through something. Your walls are not to blame that your girlfriend dumped you.


It turns out then that 'Along with life changes' Is quite a good answer to the question: 'When is the best time to win over at your home?'
