Remodeling your home can be a stressful experience. With so many details to think about, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and lose track of what you should be doing next. Luckily, there are several things that you can do to avoid stress during your remodel. In this blog post, we will discuss 6 ways that will help keep the stress at bay and make sure that you enjoy the process!
6 Tips to avoid stress during a home remodel include:
- Hire a contractor with experience and references – Rossi Construction for example! We have over 20 years in the construction industry, working with homeowners like yourself.
- Establish a budget from the beginning – Get organized so that you can stay on top of the project’s budget.
- Have realistic expectations of the time frame – Be flexible when things take longer than expected or don’t go as planned. Have a plan B in place just in case. Patience is key!
- Get the appliance warranties – Make sure that you don’t miss out on any warranty information for your appliances. This will ease your stress during the renovation to know that you didn’t waste time remodeling something only to have to pay to fix it later because you didn’t get a warranty.
- Set up a temporary kitchen – It will help keep your stress levels down if you can prepare food in a place where there isn’t construction happening. If your kitchen is the room being remodeled, set up a temporary kitchen space away from dust and debris. It’s also a good idea to plan for the expense of eating at restaurants during the construction phase.
- Focus on one project at a time – It’s ideal to remodel one room at a time, if possible. Too many disruptions could get overwhelming! Also, consider your family’s personal schedule. Perhaps there are times of the year where life gets too hectic (work, hobbies, children’s’ extracurricular commitments, etc.) and these are the times you should avoid a home remodel project. This will differ for each family, so evaluate what time of year may be best.
