Renovations list - things to fix

Updated: Sep 26, 2019

After spending the morning sanding the floor with a palm sander trying to get the tough glue residue off the floors that seemed to have been accumulated over at least 50 years which is an incredibly tedious task and then I have to go and knock down all of the nails so that when go over with I decided it would be best to write a list of all the things that need to be fixed or replaced around our house.

I took a note from an old art class where we took with drawing up house plans and I went and measured the entire flat and found that our flat is under 40 sqm of living space, it's in fact 38.53 sqm, not a lot but it's our home.


Here is how it works out:

  • Living room - 7.48sqm

  • Bathroom - 6.62sqm

  • Kitchen - 9.24 sqm

  • Bedroom - 6.5sqm

  • Hallway - 5.89sqm

  • Lobby - 2.8 sqm


Living room list

  • New lighting

  • Need new desks, ours are wobbly as all hell and old.

  • New cat tower, taller and space saving preferably.

  • Finish painting the walls, only did the first coat and some of the old paint is still showing through.

  • Need more storage, nowhere near enough storage for this tiny room.

  • New curtains and resealing all the windows to prevent drafts.

  • New rugs and the floors need to be refurbished and either carpeted or painted.


Bathroom list

  • New lighting

  • Need new Bathroom suite as ours is old and outdated.

  • Need to sort out the damp, possible solution a dehumidifier or installation of a a ventilation fan.

  • Finish painting the walls here too, only did the first coat could definitely use a second coat.

  • Need more storage, nowhere near enough storage for this tiny room.

  • Would love a shower if at all possible.

  • Carpet needs to be removed, floors need sealing and tiling

  • Need all new accessories, towel rails, holders etc.

Kitchen list

  • New lighting (Ours are rusted around the connections and rarely come one when turned on)

  • Need new KITCHEN

  • Need a decent washer dryer

  • Finish painting the walls here too, only did the first coat could definitely use a second coat.

  • Need more storage, nowhere near enough storage for this tiny room.

  • Would love a decent stove not a cheapo one that is already rusting after only a few months.

  • New rugs and the floors need to be refurbished and either carpeted or painted.

  • Floors need refurbishing.

  • Need new taps and a new sink (sink is bowed massively and doesn't drain off properly, taps are rusted shut and can't get water from them)


Bedroom list

  • Need new bed frame, possibly with storage

  • Finish painting the walls here too, only did the first coat could definitely use a second coat.

  • Need more storage, nowhere near enough storage for this tiny room, we dont even have any real clothes storage.

  • New rugs and the floors need to be refurbished and either carpeted or painted.


Hallway/Lobby list

  • Need a shoe rack so people stop bring their shoes into the living room

  • Finish painting the walls here too, only did the first coat could definitely use a second coat.

  • Need more storage, nowhere near enough storage for these tiny rooms.

  • New rugs and the floors need to be refurbished and either carpeted, tiled or painted

  • New lighting as the lighting is less than adequate

  • Doorbell/Security system so we can actually know when people are at our door

  • Replace old stair treads/ new handrail

That my friends is the list so far.
