It’s worth getting your ideas in place early and contacting the building, home and property refurbishment companies you’re interested in as soon as possible. It helps if you can be flexible about time frames.
As many owners are choosing to change their property rather than move, demand is increasing. Although this is happening across the country as more people search for a reputable refurbishment company, London in particular is seeing a rise in such work. Your first choice firm might be able to fit you in soon, but the earlier you contact them, the better.
Your chosen company should liaise with you throughout for a stress-free experience. Stages typically include:
Draw up proposed plans
Plan around disruption
A schedule of works is vital to the process, and could encompass:
Removal/recycling: old units/structures/appliances
Gas/electrical safety certification
Decide if you’ll move out temporarily while the most disruptive tasks are carried out, or stay put and work around the out-of-bounds areas. Kitchens and bathrooms are constantly used hubs, so make sure you have sufficient alternatives in place.
Popular refurbishment options
Which rooms do house renovation companies most often get asked to change? The answer is simple: kitchens and bathrooms. So much goes into these areas, besides the usual floors, walls, windows and doors, such as:

The work that Fittra did for me was a full house renovation – this did not include any new build or extension work but it did include moving a number of internal load bearing walls and extending external openings to install large sliding doors. The work was reasonably complex structurally as the upper floor is steel beam and concrete block construction. Externally all windows and doors were changed, guttering and fascias were changed and a new tiled deck constructed to give an outside/inside feel. Internally, walls were moved, new door openings created or widened to give a modern open plan look and feel.Read More
“Fittra completed a rear extension, loft conversion and full refurbishment of our house in Ealing late last year. This included new bathrooms, heating system (including underfloor heating), electrics and plumbing. When obtaining quotes, Fittra’s prices were in the middle of the three companies who came back to us with costs, but the fact that it was fully itemised (unlike the other costs we received) gave us piece of mind that we knew exactly what we were getting for our money. “Read More
“Can’t speak highly enough of Fittra and the job they did. They completed a rear extension, side return and loft extension and pretty much a full refurbishment of our house and garden in SW London. They not only did an incredible job, but they were also great to work with too. Vadym and Ivan’s team were incredibly efficient and hardworking and really amenable and collaborative. I have recommended them to a few friends subsequently, and will continue to do so.”
Team at Fittra possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent contractor: they know their market extremely well; they are diligent, responsive, and yet very understanding with their clients. They are very professional and offer cost saving alternatives when possible. The thing that has impressed me the most is the professionalism, knowledge and helpfulness of all the workers.
“We did our house fully renovation last year July 2019 – December 2019 with Fittra. We are very pleased with the results – our new kitchen (rear extension with lantern roof light), loft conversion, hardwood flooring, underfloor heating, tiling and etc.. Ivan and his team are truly professional. They finished the job with timely manner and customer satisfaction. Their breakdown quotes are easy to understand and easy to work with. We are highly recommended for Ivan, Igor and the team. Great job!!!”

This refurbishment project was absolutely thrilling to accomplish, with a solid team of interior designers and a delightful, intelligible client.

Renovation is perfect for minor fixes such as repainting walls and replacing broken windows. If the business needs more aesthetics and functional elements to the building without changing the structure, then renovation is the way to go. But if the current design is undesirable, then remodeling would work best.
Choosing to remodel your kitchen or bathroom first is traditionally the smartest move. And while kitchens typically cost more to remodel than bathrooms, they tend to yield a better return on investment, so they end up paying for themselves over the long run.
It may involve, the removal of walls or the expansion of your home through a loft conversion, house extension or the construction of a new basement level or cellar.
