How Are House Renovation Plans Beneficial to Homeowners?

Because full home renovations can cover such a wide scope of work, they come with a lot of potential benefits. One key reason to renovate is that it can help to increase the value of your home. Whether you’re planning to sell in the near future or not, having a home that is worth more money is always a good thing.

Even if you’re not looking to sell, though, renovated homes also tend to be more comfortable and enjoyable to live in. With updated features and improved design, a renovation can make your home feel like brand new – and that’s something that’s definitely worth the investment. Finally, renovating can also help you to save money in the long run.

By making updates like increasing energy efficiency or fixing structural issues, you can end up saving a lot of money over time. So, when you weigh all of the potential benefits, it’s easy to see why renovating your home can be such a smart decision.

DIY Renovation VS Hiring a Renovation Planner

There are a lot of reasons to do a DIY renovation: you can save money, you get to choose the design, and it’s a great way to learn new skills. But there are also some downsides that you should be aware of before you start your project.

On the other hand, a full home renovation planner will have a team of architects, engineers, and interior designers who can help you with your project from start to finish. In addition, a full home renovation planner will be able to provide you with a warranty on their work. This means that if something goes wrong with your renovation, they will be able to come back and fix it for free.

DIY Renovation

  • Fun and creative: if you love doing things yourself then why not?
  • Taking full charge of your renovation can be a good learning experience.
  • You might not have the same level of expertise as a professional.
  • Stress levels are up for the whole duration of the project and you will have no additional input from an expert to make sure you’re on track.
  • If something goes wrong, you’re on your own.
  • You could easily make some mistakes that’ll cost you more money in the long run.
  • The process can be more time-consuming than you thought it would be.
  • You’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you did it all yourself.

Home Renovation Planner

  • Get the best value for your money by hiring a professional renovator
  • Avoid mistakes during renovations, and paying a steep price for them
  • Planning a renovation is a load off your shoulders since the project manager takes on that mantle
  • Renovations are done according to your set budget and completed on time
  • Professional renovators have experience and expertise you can rely on, especially when you need advice on functionality and aesthetics.
  • Reduce stress and anxiety associated with home renovations, thanks to your planner who keeps everything under control
  • Ensure your project runs smoothly and efficiently.

Steps in Renovating a House

Full Home Renovation

Set Your Goals

Sit down and make a list of all the changes you’d like to make to your home. Why are you renovating your home? What do you hope to accomplish? What style do you prefer? What’s your budget?

Ask for any development approvals you may need from your local council, state planning authority, or a consultant town planner to make sure you are legally compliant.

Invest In Quality

House renos require some level of investment. Investing in quality materials and labour ensures that your house can withstand the wear and tear of daily life, as well as natural disasters.


Today’s technology makes it possible for anyone to be more involved in the renovation process. If you want to renovate your house, you can start by looking to online resources for inspiration and ideas. Once you have an idea of what you want, gather estimates from contractors. Once you have chosen a contractor, be sure to read the contract carefully and make sure that all details are agreed upon before work begins.

Yes, we do! Book a consultation with us and we can do a home visit so we can get a picture on the scope and extent of the project. We will also provide you with free measure and quote.

You can do some or all of the work yourself, use recycled or repurposed materials, and get creative with your design. But if you are not confident with your knowledge, skills, and level of expertise, hiring a professional to do your house renovation might prove to be more cost-efficient.

Most definitely. Feel free to visit our showroom located at 3 Monique Ct Raceview. Appointment hours are from 8:00am – 3:00pm on Mondays through Thursdays, and 8:00am – 12:00pm on Fridays. Click the button below to book a consultation.

Geoff and I would like to thank you so much for our beautiful new kitchen and laundry. We truly are over the moon! Installing a new kitchen is always daunting with so many things to decide on and we really just put our trust in you to manage it all.  The project ran so smoothly and the constant communication ensured that we were aware of what was happening at all stages.  Even a trade running slightly late ensured we received a text direct with an update. None of my last-minute changes (love my waterfall) were a problem and each of your contractors were polite, professional and most importantly respectful of the new social distancing requirements and hygiene measures. We will be looking forward to 'showing off' our new kitchen when we are allowed visitors again. Please pass on our thanks to each of your team.

Geoff & Sandra

Could not have asked for anything more with my new kitchen. Corey and the team made the whole process from start to finish so easy. All trades used throughout the renovation were friendly and professional. I would highly recommend McColl Cabinets to anyone wanting professional and prompt service and an outstanding result.

Tony and Gai, Beenleigh

We have used McColl Cabinetmakers on many of our projects now and have found them to be very easy to deal with. Corey is very knowledgeable and very helpful in designing the right kitchen layouts to suit our needs. We have also used McColl Cabinetmakers to build kitchens, wardrobes and vanities, they are always willing to help. The products are always of good quality and the installers are always happy to help adjust their schedules in case we run behind. Nothing is too much for these guys!! Price is fantastic, quality is awesome and communication is over and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend them!

Jodie Lamborne

Quite undoubtedly the best service we have ever received. Our new Kitchen and WIP looks amazing and is a dream to be in and has received many jaw dropping "WOWs" from friends and family. Corey was absolutely fantastic from initial consultations to project managing the entire job. Communication was exceptional. We loved that McColls took care of all the required tradies and found them all to be professional, friendly, polite and exceptionally tidy. We were provided with a timeline for all works to be completed and it was spot on! We are still in awe that our renovation has been completely stress free and couldn't be happier with the end result. We highly recommend McColl Cabinets to anyone needing a kitchen, bathroom or cabinetry. Great team, great work, it's a big thumbs up from us. Sincere thanks to you all.
