Home Improvement Process
It is mainly designed according to your own living habits, and a detailed measurement of your own room. Don't be lazy, it is best to measure it yourself. The content of the measurement mainly includes:
Clarify the area involved in the renovation process. Especially tile area, wall paint area, wallpaper area, floor area;
Identify the main wall dimensions. Especially in the future, it is necessary to design the wall size of the furniture.
2. Subject Demolition
Entering the construction stage, the main body demolition and modification is the first project, which mainly includes demolition of walls, wall laying, shoveling of walls, demolition of heating, replacement of plastic steel windows and so on. To put it bluntly, the main body dismantling and reforming is to put up the frame of the construction site first.
3. Hydropower Transformation
Before the water circuit transformation, the main structure dismantling and modification should be basically completed. Between the two links of hydropower transformation and main body demolition, some students 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:
Check whether the position of the range hood socket affects the installation of the range hood in the future;
See if the location of the water meter is appropriate;
See if the location of the upper nozzle is convenient for installing the sink later.
For the first measurement of the cabinet, students with a little experience can complete it by themselves. After the waterway renovation is completed, it is best to waterproof the bathroom immediately. Kitchens generally do not need to be waterproofed.
Woodworkers, bricklayers, and oilers are the "three brothers" in the construction process. The basic order of appearance is: wood-tile-oil. The basic principle of appearance is-whoever gets dirty will go first. "Whoever gets dirty first" is also one of the basic principles that determine the order of home improvement, which I will mention later.
In fact, carpentry work such as covering vertical pipes, making decorative ceilings, and plastering lines can also be considered as a detailed link of the main body's dismantling and modification in a sense. It does not conflict with the water circuit modification, and sometimes it needs some Cooperate.
In the process of the "bricklayer's" operation, the installation of the following three links is also involved:
Installation of stone and marble window sills. 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 worker who installs the marble will prepare glass glue and seal the marble and window cover with glass glue. Up.
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 students start to visit building materials, they should buy a floor drain as soon as possible.
Installation of range hood. The range hood was the first home appliance to appear on the market. After the kitchen tiles have been laid, you can consider installing a range hood.
When the "bricklayer" leaves the scene, it is time to 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, the second measurement can be made for the cabinet.
6. Wall Painting
The "oil worker" enters the site and mainly completes the basic treatment of the wall surface, painting the surface paint, and painting the furniture made by the "woodworker boss". Students who are going to paste wallpapers only need to let the "little oiler" do the basic treatment on the wall where they plan to paste the wallpaper. As for whether to leave the top coat for the last time, I personally feel that this question does not need to be too real. From my experience in decoration, it does not make much sense to leave the top coat, because the subsequent operations are no more dirty than painting. .
7. Kitchen and Bathroom Ceiling
As the beginning of the installation process, the cabinet ceiling is still continuing the "packaging" of the home. At the same time as the kitchen and bathroom ceiling, the moisture-proof ceiling lamp and exhaust fan (yuba) of the kitchen and bathroom should have been bought. It is best for students to install the ceiling lamp and exhaust fan (bathroom) at the same time, or leave the thread and opening.
8. 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.
9. Wooden Door Installation
On the second day of the cabinet installation, after measuring the wooden door more than a month ago, it is now ready for installation. If it goes well, it is also a day's time to install the hinges, door locks, and floor suction at the same time as the door is installed. Students should prepare relevant hardware in advance.
If you want the wooden door manufacturer to install window covers and passways, you should also measure them when the wooden door manufacturers measure them, and install them on the same day as the wooden door is installed. At the same time, consider shifting the installation time of the marble window sills backwards and arrange them in the window covers. After installation.
Remarks: The production cycle of wooden doors is generally one month. Therefore, in order to make the construction period close, it is necessary to let the wooden door manufacturers 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-it looks good.
10. Floor Installation
The floor can be installed on the second day of the installation of the wooden door. 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 investigate whether the ground needs to be leveled or partially leveled. Some decoration companies or refurbishment teams will advise students to level or partially level the ground. The actual survey of the floor manufacturer shall prevail;
2. Before installing the floor, the floor of the paved floor at home must be cleaned, and the floor must be dry, so do not use water during the cleaning process.
3. When installing the floor, if possible, the cutting of the floor must be in the corridor. This issue has been discussed in the forum before, and some students think that cutting the floor in the corridor to pollute the public area is unethical. My idea is to clean up after finishing the work, it doesn't matter. Cutting the floor indoors has serious pollution to the walls. Similar to the cutting of the artificial stone countertops of the cabinets, I believe that the students who have renovated have some experience.
On the second day of floor installation, the house is cleaned up, and the wallpaper can be arranged. 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, and it’s okay to clean up the wallpaper glue left on the floor to Pioneer Cleaning. Before paving the wallpaper, try to do "nothing" on the wall.
12. Radiator Installation
On the second day after the wallpaper is laid, the students who replaced the radiator or dismantled the radiator can steadily hang the radiator on the wall. The same is the time of one day.
Wooden door-floor-wallpaper-radiator, this is a generally recognized correct installation sequence, the first installation of the wooden door is to ensure that the skirting line of the floor can be tightly connected with the door cover of the wooden door; the wallpaper is mainly installed after the floor The installation is dirty and dusty, which seriously pollutes the wallpaper. Here again I use the principle of "who gets dirty first". Finally, the radiator is installed because the radiator can only be installed when the wall wallpaper is spread.
13. Switch Socket Installation
Students should have a detailed understanding or record of the number and location of switch sockets in each natural room in the home, especially for students who put up wallpaper, sometimes the wallpaper worker is irresponsible, and the wallpaper is spread all at once, and he does not need it. The wallpaper knife is marked with a hole in your switch socket. Therefore, it is still necessary for the students to know what they are doing.
14. Lamp Installation
Install the lights, nothing to say. After installing the lights, the home is lit up. Say goodbye to the glare of the 100-watt incandescent bulb during the renovation-it feels good.
15. Hardware Sanitary Ware Installation
Install the plumbing fittings, bathroom accessories, toilets, drying racks, etc. that you bought before. After the "big items" are installed, the house is still very "cold". After the lamps and hardware and sanitary ware are installed, the house is "alive", really "alive". It’s not an exaggeration to say that the first time you turn on the dragon water and watch the water flow out, you will feel beautiful in your heart;
16. Curtain Rod Installation
The installation of curtain rods marks the basic end of home improvement.
17. Pioneer Cleaning
Before opening up the land and cleaning, do not install curtains. Remember to remind everyone in the post "Explain the curtains". When pioneering and cleaning, do not have furniture and unnecessary household appliances in the house, and try to keep more "flat surfaces" so that the pioneer and cleaning can thoroughly clean.
18. Move in Furniture
Regarding the purchase time of the furniture, my suggestion is that at the earliest after the renovation of the water circuit is completed, we can only know the basic size range of the furniture. Therefore, some students are eager to order all the furniture before the decoration has started, personally feel that there is no need.
19. Appliance Installation
At this time, the home appliances should come in, the installation should be installed, ready to move in!
20. Home Accessories
Home accessories, the last step of home improvement, and has changed from decoration to decoration, including the installation of curtains are all part of home accessories. As for buying curtains, it is best to order the furniture to avoid style conflicts. Home accessories also include you can consider buying some green plants, wall paintings, handicrafts, etc.... In short, after moving in, you can play freely.
