Renovating the house by yourself is really “painful and happy.” Finding materials, running the market, comparing prices, finding construction, etc., must be done by yourself. Compared with half-inclusive and all-inclusive, it is really time-consuming and laborious. But some friends like to do everything by themselves and feel very fulfilled. So what should I do to renovate my own house? What is the process?
How to decorate your own house
In the pre-design, one more thing we must do is to carry out a detailed measurement of our own room. This will not only allow you to be accurate when buying building materials, but also avoid being hacked during settlement.
The main content of the measurement includes:
1. Clarify the area involved in the decoration process. Especially the tile area, wall paint area, wallpaper area, and floor area.
2. Clarify the main wall dimensions. Especially in the future, it is necessary to design the wall size of the furniture.
Second, the main body demolition and modification
When decorating at home, the main body must be dismantled and modified first, including dismantling walls, laying walls, shoveling walls, dismantling heating, replacing plastic steel windows, and so on. However, during demolition, the load-bearing wall cannot be demolished or modified at will, so as not to damage the stability of the house and cause potential safety hazards.
3. Hydropower transformation
Between the two links of hydropower transformation and main body demolition, some friends may know that the first measurement of the cabinet should also be carried out. In fact, the so-called first measurement of the cabinet has no actual content, because the wall and floor are not processed, the cabinet designer cannot give specific design dimensions, but only the water inlet and range hood socket reserved by the developer. Location, make some relevant suggestions. mainly includes:
1. Check whether the position of the range hood socket affects the installation of the range hood in the future.
2. Check whether the location of the water meter is appropriate.
3. Check if the location of the water inlet is convenient for installing the sink later.
For the first measurement of the cabinet, a slightly experienced owner can complete it by himself. After the waterway renovation is completed, it is best to waterproof the bathroom immediately. Kitchens generally do not need to be waterproofed.
Four, carpenters, bricklayers, and oilers debut
Carpenter, mason, and painter are the “three brothers” in the construction process. The basic order of appearance is: carpenter, mason (bricklayer), and painter. The basic principle of appearance is whoever gets dirty first.
If the worker is very busy, the foreman will usually let the bricklayer come in and put the tiles before the carpentry is over. This is normal because there is no conflict between the two.
The operation process of “Mason’s second child” also involves the installation of the following three links:
1. Installation of door stone and marble window sill. The installation of the door stone can be done together with the floor tiles, or after the floor tiles. The marble window sill is usually installed after the window cover is completed. The marble installation worker will prepare glass glue and seal the marble and window cover with glass glue. Up.
2. Installation of floor drain. The floor drain is the first one among the home improvement hardware, because it needs to be installed together with the floor tiles. Therefore, when the owners start to visit the building materials market, they should buy the floor drain as soon as possible.
3. Installation of range hood. The range hood is the first home appliance to appear on the scene. After the kitchen tiles are laid, you can consider installing the range hood.
“Mason’s second child” leaves the scene. At this time, you can make an appointment for the second measurement of the cabinet. To be precise, after the kitchen wall and floor tiles are pasted and the range hood is installed, you can make an appointment for the second measurement of the cabinet.
Six, paint the wall
The painter enters the site to complete the basic treatment of the wall surface, paint the surface paint, and paint the furniture. For those who are going to paste wallpaper, they only need to do basic treatment on the wall.
Seven, kitchen and bathroom ceiling
At the same time as the ceiling of the kitchen and bathroom, the moisture-proof ceiling lamp and exhaust fan (yuba) of the cabinet should have been bought. It is best for the owner to install the cabinet and bathroom ceiling lamp and exhaust fan (bath heater) at the same time, or leave the thread and the opening.
Eight, cabinet installation
After the ceiling is finished, the cabinet can be installed on the door. If it goes well, it can be done in one day. At the same time, the sink (which may not include the water and water fittings) and the gas stove are installed. It is best to coordinate the property to vent the gas before the cabinet is installed, because the gas stove needs to be tested after it is installed.
Nine, wooden door installation
On the second day of cabinet installation, the wooden door should have been measured more than a month ago, and it is now ready for installation. If it goes well, it will be one day. The owner should prepare the relevant hardware in advance for the hinges, door locks, and floor suctions to be installed at the same time as the door is installed.
[Remarks] The production cycle of wooden doors is generally one month. Therefore, in order to make the construction period tightly connected, the wooden door manufacturers should come to the door to measure the size of the door as soon as possible after the main body is dismantled and modified. Regarding the handling of the doorway, everyone needs to pay attention to it. If the height of the doorway in the house is inconsistent, workers need to treat it to the same height to make it look good.
10. Floor installation
The floor can be installed the next day after the wooden door is installed. If it goes well, it will be a day. Floor installation needs to pay attention to the following issues:
1. Before installing the floor, it is best to ask the manufacturer to come to investigate whether the ground needs to be leveled or partially leveled.
2. Before installing the floor, the floor of the paved floor at home should be cleaned and the floor should be dry, so do not use water during the cleaning process.
11. Shop and paste wallpaper
On the second day of floor installation, the house is cleaned up, and the wallpaper can be laid. If it goes well, it will also be a day. If possible, the floor should be protected on the day the wallpaper is laid; it doesn’t matter if there is no condition, it’s okay to clean up the wallpaper glue left on the floor to Pioneer Cleaning. Before paving the wallpaper, try to do “don’t have anything” on the wall.
12. Switch socket installation
The socket is connected to 3 wires. According to the left neutral wire and the right live wire, the ground wire is inserted in the middle. The general socket has the indication, the live wire is L and the neutral wire is N, and the ground wire is a symbol. Connect one end of the switch to the live wire, and connect the other end to the electrical appliances or lights, and that’s it.
13. Lamp installation
After installing the lights, the home is bright. Say goodbye to the glare of the 100-watt incandescent bulb during the renovation period. Does it feel good?
14. Hardware installation
Install the plumbing fittings, bathroom accessories, toilets, drying racks, etc. that you bought before. After the “big pieces” are installed, the house is still very “cold”. After the lamps and hardware are installed, the house will be “live”.
15. Installation of curtain rod
The installation of curtain rods marks the basic end of home improvement.
16. Pioneer cleaning
Do not install curtains before opening up and cleaning. When pioneering and cleaning, do not have furniture and unnecessary household appliances in the house, and try to maintain more “flat surfaces” so that the pioneer and cleaning can clean up thoroughly.
17. Furniture enters the market
The purchase time of furniture will be after the completion of the water and electricity transformation at the earliest, so we can roughly know the basic size range of the furniture in this way. But when entering the arena, be prepared to have disposable shoe covers to avoid soiling the floor.
18. Home appliances enter the market
At this time, the home appliances should enter the market, the installation should be installed, and it is ready to move in.
Nineteen, home furnishings
Home accessories is the last step of home improvement, and the decoration has been turned into decoration, including the installation of curtains, which belong to the furniture accessories link. As for buying curtains, it is best to order the furniture to avoid style conflicts.
