I'm having things done by different tradesmen just don't know what the order or renos should be like. Let me know if this is ideal:
1. Bathroom, kitchen, electricals and minor woodwork
3. Carpet and blinds
Is this the proper order of renovations?

what are you doing in the bathroom and kitchen you often need to split the sparkies and plumbers into two stages (or maybe 2.5 on a reno ).
Isolate everything ready to attack disable power points, remove ovens/stoves, sinks/etc... and disable so you can turn the rest of the house on.
Rough In so with no walls/tiles/cupboards in the way they do the messy work of running stuff in the walls/under the house to the positions it needs to be in for your final design to work.
Attached power points/taps/drains/etc... to the positions organised prior.
Now stage 2 can be really simple or a PITA depends on your plasterer correctly pulling cables through, misunderstandings between you and tradies, changes of mind. If possible its best to have it tiled/painted/etc.. before hand beacuse its quicker but if there is a stuff up with a cable and they need to trace it back it may mean nice holes in your new perfect wall.
Our next place i am going to draw up full elevations of every wall with the exact location of power points/plumbing/etc... its amazing how a little variation can be a pita.
