There will come a time when you feel that your home has outlived its course.
Well, at least the fact that the interior is far too dull, overdone, stale and or even outdated. In will come a torrent of ideas of what your home could look like. Whisked away by the imagination of a completely different look, you begin to daydream and fantasize. That’s the easy part even though it may not seem like it at first. Grabbing a firm hold of the kind of style you want is the first step. The next step is to actually bring that vision you have to life. If you have ever seen what a home looks like while it’s being renovated, you’ll understand that you need room for the old stuff to go out. It will begin to look like the home has been abandoned and no wonder because the amount of things you’ll have to rip out will strip the look of the home being lived in. Before you tear the wallpaper off the walls, you need to prepare your home.
Protect The Floor
Painting the walls, the skirting boards, varnishing the furniture and polishing the decor pieces are just some of the things you’ll find yourself doing. They’re the finishing touches, but they’re still detrimental. You’d hate to grow through all that effort only to find that one thing that sticks out of place is the floor. Damaging or permanently disfiguring the floor while renovating is an all too often common occurrence. Buy some temporary floor protection that will stop any dents and staining from happening. There’s a list of different materials that all differ in price and quality. The 2mm polypropylene plastic sheets are a very popular choice as they’re relatively tough and cover a large part of the floor per placing. For hardwood floors, there are rollers with laminate film that will provide a thin layer of protection from stains such as paint droplets from the ceiling.
What Comes Off Must Go Out
When the renovation really gets into high gear, the home will begin to look like a tip. Running out of room to put the rubbish will become a real concern so much so, that it can halt further work from happening. This is because of the more your shred off and away from the interior, the more space you’ll need to actually carry the rubbish off the premises.

No part of your property should be treated as a rubbish dump as it’s counterproductive and impedes physical movement while renovating. In fact, it’s wise to hire out a skip, just so you have somewhere to put scrapings of the kitchen lino, broken bathroom tiles, old chairs etc.
It’s going to look like a bomb hit it, but your home has to go through the rough to get to the smooth. At the same time you’re trying to spruce up your home, doing permanent damage due to carelessness is going to drive you insane. Therefore prepare the home and protect the relevant parts that aren’t going to be touched by any removal or styling activities.
