5 Steps to a Simple Home Renovation Project

Making your home into a pleasant, practical space that you love to use can be a big project. As a premier granite supplier in the south-east, Surrey Marble and Granite had a hand in home renovation projects of all sizes, from sprucing up a kitchen with new countertops to completely gutting a house and starting from scratch. We’ve learned a few tricks along the way, and we’re happy to share our expertise with our customers.

Step 1: Plan, research, plan, discuss, plan

Preparation is key as mistakes can be costly to fix. For most families, a home renovation project is a big decision, as you’ll have to live with the outcome every day, probably for years to come. We strongly recommend doing your homework. As a premium marble and granite supplier, we’re experts on the use of stone in the home, and our team can talk you through the options, helping you make the right decision.

Step 2: Create a model

This tip comes from the architects we’ve worked with. A model can help you see the problems and potential in your space. You can create a model the old fashioned way, by cutting pieces out of cardboard, or one of the many free online tools that give you a 3D image of your home. The important thing is to make sure the model is as accurate and detailed as possible.

Step 3: Measure twice, cut once

Granite is a very hard material. It’s what makes it ideal for hard-working surfaces, like floors and worktops, but it means that you can’t squeeze or stretch it to fit. It’s critical the measurements are accurate, so never guess and always double, triple or quadruple check your measurements. As a granite supplier, we can provide the perfect stone floor, worktop or create something unique, just for you, but it will only fit if the numbers are right!

Step 4: Choose reliable partners

Whether you’re doing most of the work yourself or hiring experts to bring your dream to life, you need to make sure the people you work with are reliable. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we’ve been providing natural and processed stone products for homes and businesses for many years. We’re proud to be part of so many Surrey success stories.

Step 5: Have a backup plan

Unless you’ve found a money tree in your back garden, you’ll probably have to compromise somewhere along the way. By considering the second-best options when you start your planning, you’ll be able to make smart decisions when the time comes. As a granite supplier, we take our business practices from our materials. We don’t believe in the hard sell and urgent special offers. Instead, we’ll be here to help when you need us, whether it’s this week, next month or next year.
