Renovations vs Refurbishments, what’s the difference?

If you want to update the look of your home, you may be considering getting it refurbished or renovated. But what is the difference between the two? We have created a guide explaining each option and helping you to decide which is best for you. To help you out, read this blog post!


A renovation includes converting something that already exists, for example making a change to the structure or adding an extension. They mainly aim to improve what already exists by adding to it. A renovation is usually longer and more expensive than a refurbishment, as it can include more complex steps.


A refurbishment involves fixing something or redecorating. It is usually based on appearance and aims to improve the way the property looks. As a result, it is much more limiting than a renovation and requires the structure of your property to be secure before you begin.

Which should you choose?

Making this decision depends on what it is you are looking for. If you want to spruce up the way your home looks, refurbishment will be a good way to get the job done quickly. This can be done to just one room or to the whole house- depending on what you need.If you require more space or want to change the layout of your home, a renovation will be more suitable. This is because you will have more freedom when it comes to the design, and you can do as much as you need to change the property.Both options are good for different reasons, so it depends what you want the end result to look like. For a small change, go for a refurbishment. For a big change, go for a renovation.

If you still aren't sure, get in touch with our team today.

I cannot rate Burton's Property Services highly enough. Lisa and James are a delight to deal with - friendly, efficient and professional. Work was executed to a very high standard ahead of expected completion date. Additional tasks were accommodated without fuss or excessive extra cost. One very minor issue was resolved extremely quickly and efficiently. I would not hesitate to recommend Burton's to anyone undertaking building/decorating work and have already had the pleasure of doing so. Top notch!
