Ready for your home remodel in Tampa? Jumping into the remodeling world can start with a strong feeling of excitement and quickly fall to panic. Don’t be scared—with these tips, you’ll be able to redecorate and remodel the home of your dreams without a headache.
1. Have a Budget
After watching various home improvement shows you’ve likely fallen in love with unique furniture, beautiful kitchens and bathrooms, and one of a kind designed rooms. While it may seem out of reach, there are ways to achieve your dreams within your budget. Finding the balance between your imagination and staying within your financial plan is a must. When you work with a knowledgeable contractor, they can walk you through design and materials options so that you can understand pricing and set a realistic budget for your project.
2. Have a Vision
The hardest part about remodeling your home is sticking to one vision. Beginning a home renovation can run quicker when you have pre-planned. Having your thoughts predetermined will help move along the process. You will have to make many decisions during construction, and having a clear vision will help the project run smoother and more efficiently. Using online apps such as Pinterest, showroom visits, or googling pictures can help spark your imagination and creativity. Don’t be afraid to get the ball rolling by purchasing items and accessories for your rooms!
3. Understand the Pre-existing Conditions
It’s important to consider the pre-existing conditions of your home before beginning any remodeling project. For example, if you know that you tend to have issues with electrical breakers this may be a hint your electrical system needs to be upgraded and unfortunately, this typically won’t be understood until the project has begun. Be sure to review the scope of your home with your contractor so that you can plan ahead and try to avoid abrupt, costly issues.
4. Prepare to Live in An Unrecognizable Home
Living through a messy remodeling process can be stressful. Understand that this work is going to pay off in the end. Prepare yourself for lots of take-out, not being the host for a while, and dealing with dust!It’s hard to keep your home as clean as you typically would in time of building, try not to let it bother you too much. If this process is more than you can take, maybe it’s best to take a vacation or stay at a friend’s house. Whatever it takes, remember –it’s temporary!
5. Know Who’s Working for You
It’s important to be working with the right team on your construction project. It’s imperative that you take a deeper look into the contractor you are hiring. Do a few Google searches, talk to friends, and scope out past jobs they completed. Ask for their certificate of insurance, history, their license, and certification to ensure you are working with a trustworthy and reliable contractor.
