5 Things You Need to Know Before Renovating Your Home in Ibiza

Updated: Jun 7, 2022

Renovation work, although exciting and hugely rewarding, is also incredibly stressful, expensive, and time-consuming. That is why you need to be fully prepared before the work begins to reduce the number of issues that are likely to arise. To help you carry out your renovation work successfully, in this post we are going to look at 5 things you need to know before any work begins.

You Need to Hire a Professional Architect Ibiza

Although you may want to fly solo on as much of the work as you possibly can to save as much money as you possibly can, it is not a good idea. In addition to trained and experienced tradespeople, you need to have a fully trained and experienced architect working on your renovation project from the very beginning, to make sure you make the right decisions and take the correct approach for the best and most desirable results.

Effective Planning and Preparation

Before any work begins on your renovation project in Ibiza, you need to make sure that you have the bigger picture and long-term vision mapped out. Putting the time and effort into creating a comprehensive plan with the help of a professional architect Ibiza team, will ensure that the costs of the work are calculated accurately. This will also stop you from making rushed or worse still, bad decisions.

Developing an Efficient Renovation Timeline

You must have an effectively planned out timeline for your renovation project. The details of this and what it consists of will develop on the extensiveness and type of renovation work you need to carry out, as well as the location of the property. There are three things you need to consider when developing this timeline –

  • The relevant licences and permits you need and overseeing securing them

  • Time the Design Takes to Be Created by Architect Ibiza - When going ahead with your property renovation plans you need to supply Town Hall with a detailed architect technical plan for the project to secure the relevant licences. The length of time the architect needs to create this will develop how complex your work is going to be.

  • Time the Project Will Take to be Completed - The overall timeline of your work will also depend on how complex it is.

Cost of Property Renovation Work - It is often the case that renovation work costs more than is first expected. If the property is second-hand, it is not uncommon for installations, facades, and the general structure to need work. These costs are often not taken into consideration during the planning as more effort is spent in calculating the costs of the aesthetics and additions side of the renovation work.

Local Regulations and Laws Related to Renovations in Ibiza

Obviously, like most places, you need to make sure you have the relevant building permits and that your renovation work is not going to go against any standing regulations and local laws. Even the smallest of works in Ibiza need to be declared and permitted by the town hall. That is why, referring back to our first point, that you need a professional architect with experience of carrying out work in Ibiza. They will be able to discuss any limitations and restrictions you may come across with your initial plans and help you come up with new ones, if necessary, to make sure you can carry on with the project.
