Everyone perceives the repair differently: for someone, chores, for someone, an undesirable change of scenery. The end of the repair for most is a long-awaited holiday, but sometimes the beginning of the completion of the remaining shortcomings.
This will be discussed: what is annoying then and how to avoid imperfections. And no matter how difficult it is sometimes, it is necessary to do it immediately and with high quality.
Of particular difficulty is the deviation in the plastering of the walls, since the angle must be 90 °, otherwise there are inconsistencies with the laying of tiles, even hanging the furniture.
Differences in thickness will also not decorate the wall, especially this will appear on the wallpaper or when painting. There is only one solution - remove the layer of plaster and lay it again.
Laying tiles, laminate
In these works, incorrect actions will lead to the fact that there may remain a flaw even after the completion of the repair work: inconsistency, there was not enough tile and I had to buy more, and they were of the wrong color.
When laying a laminate, the following rules are followed:
- accurately calculate the place of the beginning of work in order to avoid "pieces" and "cliffs" in the most inappropriate places;
- withstand the technology of fastening with lock joints, otherwise there will be an annoying creak or gaps between the dies will appear.
The device sockets, switches and wiring
These are one of the most problematic areas of any repair. Surely, there will not be enough outlets, or they will be located in the wrong place and not (there are especially many complaints about the outlets installed on the floor), so a clear, centimeter-adjusted plan with the arrangement of furniture and another spare outlet will save you from having to redo all the electrics. Take into account that a socket may be needed for a water heater.
To install the switch, it is worth considering the principles of ergonomics:
- from the side of the door handle at a height of 75 to 90 cm .;
- in the bedroom to arrange in two places - at the exit and next to the bed, so as not to sleep when the light is on;
- two switches will help not to make unnecessary movements in a long corridor.
All cabling should be planned in advance, there is nothing more obvious to look at than wires protruding above the TV or from the cabinet, or you will have to install an adapter, you might forget that you will need an input for a router, a musical installation.
And when planning the wiring, provide the entrance to the apartment for all possible cables (wide cable channel).
Joints and bubbles on the wallpaper

- perfectly align the surface of the walls;
- glue from the window into the interior of the room to avoid shadow at the docking points;
- choose relief dense wallpaper or with a large pattern, if the walls in the room have flaws.
And some more details that are important when certifying repairs:
- plan a place for the counter in the hallway in advance so as not to redo it later;
- place refractory materials near hot surfaces;
- install the bath at an angle to the drain so that the water leaves well.
