Renovating Your Home? Here Are the 11 Most Common Mistakes to Avoid

Save yourself time and money with these insightful tips.

Even with all the money in the world, or months and months of planning, it's virtually impossible for a home renovation to go 100 per cent smoothly without at least a few hiccups along the way. Beyond the things we can control, there's everything we can't. Like the weather, for one. But what is life if not one surprise after another?

"I think those hiccups can sometimes be what make renovations so special!" says Prudence Oliveri, one half of Oliveri Design & Construction –and the artist also known as Prudence Caroline (who you may remember from her The Makers home tour). "There's a uniqueness that comes from having to work with what you've got and not starting from scratch," she says. "And you're always learning along the way, so you always come out the other side with knowledge you didn't have before."

Together with her husband, Damien, Prudence works on home renovation projects specialising in concrete design and construction. One of their most recent projects was a concrete home in regional Victoria overlooking the Great Ocean Road. Right now they're working towards building a space of their own, and have set up shop for the time being in a light-filled home in the coastal suburb of Torquay.

We reached out to find out what some of the most common mistakes people make when it comes to renovating their homes. From failing to budget, failing to plan and neglecting outside spaces, here's what she had to say.
