4 Expert Tips to Consider Before Renovating Your Home

Remodeled Kitchen

Whether you’re doing a quick bathroom makeover or a full kitchen remodel, there are several important things to consider before renovating your home. We’ve compiled our top tips for remodeling and renovation based on years of experience, so you can make the best choice on how to remodel your home.

  1. Have a Picture in Mind

No matter the project, if you don’t have an idea in mind, the project will quickly fall flat. You need some direction to get you going. Start by browsing the internet, magazines, or Pinterest for ideas of how you want your kitchen to look or how you want your bathroom to be remodeled. Keep your needs for the future in mind, as they may dictate whether you turn that spare bedroom into a home gym or a new nursery.

  1. Have a Budget in Mind

Review your finances to see how much you can feasibly spend. Be realistic in planning your budget. This will definitely affect the outcome of your project, and it will also help you understand what you can and can’t do. You may have to do the renovations in stages rather than all at once.

Also, don’t go over your budget! You don’t want to end up without the money to pay the contractor because you thought you could make it work, and then have a half-finished bathroom. You won’t be happy!

  1. Research, Research, Research

While we already mentioned this above, we can’t say it enough. Do your homework. Read as much as you can on the type of renovation you are doing. Research the best contractors for the type of work you are doing. Talk to your friends and neighbors to find out what worked and didn’t work in their home renovation projects. Perhaps most importantly, talk to the experts! You may learn that you only need to do a quick renovation rather than a full remodel.

  1. Plan it All Out

Whether you’re working with a contractor or doing it yourself, you need to have a plan in place to execute your project. You need to stick with this plan to ensure a smooth finish.

If you’re working with a contractor, it’s your responsibility to discuss the schedule with them ahead of time and to keep an eye on things throughout the project. You should check in regularly to make sure everything is going according to plan.

If you are undertaking the renovation on your own, you need to consider the best order of operations to complete the job. Think about things like whether it makes sense to put cabinets in before the flooring or tile before the tub. Identifying these tasks and the schedule you should follow will help you in the long run.
