Renovation is a huge project which needs accurate and careful planning for a successful and satisfying outcome. If you decide to bring your kitchen to the next level, widen your bathroom remodel, or add a room, maybe to accommodate a new family member, always take time to make a plan.
A good plan will keep you guided on what to do next and other lacking aspects in the project, shortly – it makes things organized. It can be overwhelming, yes, but with the help of an expert remodeling partner, the job could be a lot easier. During the initial consultation, they can give advice and then help you all throughout the project.
Ready to start making your plan? Here are some tips to help you get started with your renovation plan:
Make a list of the things you want.
You’ll surely have fun doing this because it’s like making a wish list. Get a piece of paper, sit down, think of a general idea of what look you want for your living space, and start writing down the details. You may include in your list the theme you want, whether it’s classic or modern, the design, palette, etc. Feel free to daydream, but don’t forget to go back to reality after.
Draw a rough sketch.
After making a list, you can make a basic sketch. This way, the consultant will immediately have a basic idea of what concept you aim for your renovation. It would be convenient for him/her to make a plan on how to achieve your goal, then give you an estimate of how much the project would cost.
Determine your budget
Since renovation is a huge change, it surely involves money. Therefore, money is the lifeline of this all. So, how much did you allocate to the project? Such a question needs to be asked to determine what you can do and how you can do it because budget determines everything. Moreover, make sure to have an established budget before you meet with a remodeling contractor.
Decide on your renovation timeline
When would you like to start and finish the renovation? This point is significant because renovation can disrupt your household, daily house activities and even important occasion. Say for example, you can’t have a renovation in the later part of November because you have to celebrate Thanksgiving in your home with the whole family. Yet, you still have to coordinate with your contractor for any conflicting schedules.
Household arrangements during the renovation.
Make sure to plan on how you will live during the whole renovation process. If you renovate your kitchen, don’t store kitchen stuff for daily use in a place where it’ll be hard for you to get. Or maybe book a hotel room for the time that your water supply needs to be turned off. Think carefully of other things you should prepare before the renovation.
Remodeling or renovation is one of the most exciting and refreshing event in your life, so take time to enjoy and cherish the experience. And the way to achieve this, is to have an intensive planning with an experienced and compassionate remodeling contractor.
