Is it any wonder that so many people living and working in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are looking to their homes at the moment?
At a time when many of the ways we might have ordinarily expected to spend the autumn and winter are compromised or even just not feasible as measures are adopted to help minimise the spread of COVID-19, a lot of us are spending considerable time in our Dubai homes.
Indeed, your thoughts might have even turned to making the most of this strange and – presumably – temporary time of suspension in our usual lifestyles, by having your Dubai property extensively renovated.
A few things to consider before you get started
You might order such work so that you enjoy your own Dubai apartment or villa so much more. Alternatively, you may be looking to boost the value of the property for resale, or even to make a rental property of yours a more attractive prospect for potential tenants.
If you’re interested in renovating your Dubai property for reasons like the above, it’s well worth first getting in touch with Renovo, not least so that you can request the property health report that will enable you to pinpoint any unnoticed issues with the building before you start.
And speaking of starting points, finding ways to maximise space at your Dubai property might understandably be one of your highest priorities. So, what are some of the best ways to do that?
- Change the layout of the property. This is something that you’ll need to think carefully about long before you get in touch with Dubai property renovation professionals. You may realise that entire rooms – for example, second or third bedrooms – are redundant and could be repurposed, or that walls could be eliminated between certain rooms.
- Knock down a wall or several. Doubtless, this will have to be done in a manner that respects the structural integrity of your Dubai apartment. Nonetheless, with many people in the market for residential properties in the UAE in 2020 especially valuing more open interior spaces, you may find that eliminating the wall separating the kitchen from the living room, for instance, could fire imaginations and open up new possibilities.
- Literally add further space. You might be lucky enough from a practical and financial perspective for the construction of an extension of your property to be an option for you. Alternatively, there may be a forgotten-about or underused attic space, garage or another part of the home that could be transformed into a hospitable and usable new room.
- Remove bulky and unnecessary items. Even when the amount of space the villa or apartment already takes up really is the limit of how much space can be enjoyed, it’s still possible to effectively “create” space by ridding rooms of cumbersome and unneeded features you might have thus far taken for granted. There may be TV cabinets, bookcases or kitchen islands, for example, that have long outlived their usefulness.
Naturally, freeing up space is far from the only aspiration that you may have for a property renovation. However, this is precisely why it makes so much sense to converse with the Renovo team about what you would like to achieve with such sensitive and important work at your Dubai apartment or villa.
