Heartiest congratulations to you on buying a new home! Now perhaps you’re thinking of making your home interiors look like a palace, isn’t it? So, get hold of an interior designer to make your interiors look as you dreamt of! But wait, hold on. What if after some days or weeks may be, you realize that your interiors have started taking a bad look once again and some days back only, you spent your hard earned penny into it!
Let’s not think of such circumstances hitting your mind. All you need is to know the health condition of your beautiful nest and its sections before covering it with majestic glances! Yes, you read it right, health of home implies the condition of your home places like the walls, floor, corners, and all. You simply can’t make the interiors look good externally. Rather, get hold of a doctor…I mean your home assessment doctor to assess the health condition of your home.
Home inspector & interior designer – the perfect couple
No, there’s no relationship between the two we’re going to establish. Instead, perceive a home inspector as a doctor who can let you know the issues pertaining to your home. Upon getting a clear idea of the condition of your home, the home inspector can help you save huge money from getting wasted in interior designing.
So, now the question arises, what is a home inspection? On a very light note, home inspection is basically a complete health checkup of your home wherein, almost all of the following areas are inspected – bedroom, bathroom or washroom, living, dining, kitchen, balcony, servant quarters, etc. On the top of that, you also get an overview of the elements of your home like – ceilings, walls, floors, doors, windows, cabinets, countertops, ventilation, exhaust systems, electrical, plumbing, water supply, etc.
You might even get overwhelmed to know that the inspection even covers material types, installation & finishing, operations & functionality, general safety, etc. It’s that holistic. Then you also get 3D inspection of issues, for instance, detection of the issues, description and elaboration of the outcomes, and then finally direct solutions that are plausible to follow. These also help your interior designer to accordingly optimise the resources to be used to transform your home into a palace and simultaneously save great deals.
Have a look at the benefits you get
If precautionary measures are not taken beforehand, we can encounter a lot of unanticipated circumstances. Before decluttering your home and transforming into remarkable interiors, you ought to know what the problems can really be.
To get desired outcomes, put a hold on interior designing and focus primarily on home inspection to identify and resolve issues like dampness, water leakage or seepage, improper finishing, improper joint fillings like gaps, extra cuts, improper slope, termites, issues in doors and windows, cracks, patches, peeling, undulation, plumbing issues, electrical issues like short circuit, damage in wires, conduits which often make life of occupants risky, and finally, safety and functionality issues.
Now imagine you have already called your interior designer to mark a paradigm shift in your home looks and beauty. You couldn’t know whether the resources put at certain places are defective or not. On the other hand, a health inspection for your home and then bringing elegance on resolved surfaces of your home could have ensured proper functionality, beauty, good health, safety & longevity of your property.
Other points to know before you decide
An additional thing you might have to think about is that when your interior design team visits your home and finds out the problems while they’ve already started working, you will have to again resolve these issues first. So, there’s a lot of wastage of time you have to bear with. The problems like damp in a certain place or an electrical defect somewhere else might actually compel your home interior design project to get postponed.
On the top of that, you might have to invest more efforts and endeavors to simultaneously carry on two projects in the very same temporarily messed-up home of yours! Things might become worse if your interior designers have to polish the entire defects. You might think that why not let the interior design team take care of your issues. Well, the interior designers will simply get hold of some home inspection team thus charging a higher budget from you. If you have instead taken care of the home inspection requirements, you could’ve got your projects folded within a shorter time as well as a lesser budget.
But, don’t worry. Nothing is lost so far! You can still first get your home inspection done to wave off wastage and rework. So, cheer up, give your beautiful nest new shape and color so that your neighbors keep their eyes popping!
