Tip 1: Focus on a Single Goal for the Remodel
Decide exactly what you are going to get for the remodel. Are you looking for extra space? Improve health/safety reasons? Whatever they might be, you will want to keep them in mind during the entire process so you don’t deviate it into a disaster.
Tip 2: Determine What Works
Assess your floor plan by paying attention to how accessible the various parts of your home are. This will give you a sense of what works well and what doesn’t.
Tip 3: Start Gathering Ideas
Collect pictures of rooms, fixtures and layouts that you like. Make sure to include fabrics, wall coverings and other samples so that you can start developing a clear idea of what you would like your room to look like.
Tip 4: Create a Budget
Take a note of the number of changes you want to make and assign a specific cost to each change. You should start thinking about how much you are willing to invest in a remodeling and prioritizing the changes you want most.
Tip 5: Consult a Contractor
A contractor will be able to give you insights on common mistakes, as well as help you choose and decide on certain aspects of the remodeling you aren’t sure about. A good contractor will help you save lots of money by helping you avoid pitfalls that can end up costing a lot to fix.
