Planning for a home remodel can be overwhelming. While it’s exciting to jump right into picking out the design elements of your home remodel – paint colors, fixtures, etc. – it’s important to have a full plan in place to ensure a smooth remodeling experience from start to finish.
Here are our top tips for planning a successful home remodel:
Understand Your Budget: The budget is going to dictate everything in your home remodel, from the building materials to the finishes and more. It is important to keep in mind, if you are remodeling your kitchen, you’ll need to factor in budgeting for eating out/takeout or if your bedrooms will be affected, budget in temporary sleep situations. Lastly, if you’ll need to store your belongings elsewhere, don’t forget to price that out as well.
Do Your Research: Choosing who will do your home remodel is no easy task. Ask around the neighborhood and look to friends and family for referrals. Be sure to research each contractor online to see what previous clients have to say and to ensure you are working with a reliable and trustworthy contractor.
Communicate with Your Contractor: Hammering out all of the day-to-day details will help ease your stresses. Discuss daily start and end times, understand the overall timeline of the project (including if the weather can affect your timeline), and be clear on your overall home remodel goals. Communication is also key if there are any issues or items you are unhappy with along the way.
Think Big Picture: While the remodeling process may be exhausting and disrupt your family’s typical schedule, think long-term! The remodel is only temporary and will be worth it once complete. Expect some disruptions and delays to occur and accept the inconveniences.
