This part of house interior design, may not make your house look more beautiful but, is necessary to make your home more comfortable and have a greater resale value. Here are a few things about interior finishing that you should remember.

  • Even though you may not install an alarm system right away, ensure that the wiring is in place, so that you have the option of installing the system later on. This will add to the resale value of the house as well.
  • Rough in for the built-in Vacuum System should be installed when the house is being built, as it is less expensive at this stage.
  • All insulation other than blown insulation can be installed at this point. Drywall should be installed once insulation is done. Ploy Vapor is inserted between the drywall and insulation and sealed around outlets like doors and windows. Once insulation is installed, the Insulation Inspector from City Hall will inspect it. Blown insulation is installed when the ceiling in placed and will be inspected during Final Inspection. Using insulation can do soundproofing. This can be used in baths, bedroom and between floors.
  • After the insulation has been inspected the drywall can be installed. Drywalls can be used for extra soundproofing.
  • Before doing the cabinet, laying the flooring the house should be cleaned thoroughly.
  • The painter should finish painting the room in which the linoleum and cabinets have to be installed. The can paint the moldings and doors as well.
  • The linoleum should be installed before the molding and cabinets are installed. When this is done there are fewer chances of damage to the linoleum.
  • The carpenter will install the molding and cabinets in the rooms that have been painted and where the linoleum has been laid. Molding can be used to highlight or hide windows, doors or walls. For cabinets get several quotations and don't compromise on quality while trying to buy something less expensive.
  • Ceramic tiles can be installed while the rest of the finishing is being done.
  • Sinks, taps, toilets in both the bathroom and kitchen can be installed now and connected to the tank.
  • Shelves and rods for the closet should be installed after the painting has been done.
  • Get the electrician to fix your light fixtures at this time.
  • Curtains and Binds can be installed after the painting is done.
  • The hardwood floor should be installed at the very end, as it is likely to get damaged with all the work going on. This type of flooring lasts long, is easy to clean and comes in a variety of beautiful colors and this can be used in just one room or the whole house.
  • Finally, after all the interior finishing is done install the carpet so that there is no damage done to it.
  • Allow the painter to touch up any spots on the wall and floor.
  • Request the City Hall to conduct final inspection once everything is complete. Once inspected and passed you will receive the Occupancy Permit.
