Whole-house remodels require careful planning and meticulous budgeting, but all the time and effort you put into them will be worth it in the end. To help you manage your whole-house remodel, the interior remodelers at Highland Design and Build shared some planning tips in this guide.
Set Clear Goals for Your Project
It’s important that you visualize what your dream home looks like and set concrete goals for them. Without a clear vision for your project, you’ll most likely end up disappointed with the end result, no matter what it is.
Having trouble visualizing your dream home? You can consult one of your local home remodelers. They can show you pictures of homes they renovated or give recommendations to help you form a vision for your renovation project.
Look for Temporary Accommodation
Some homeowners prefer to stay in their home while renovations are ongoing. However, most contractors don’t recommend this. Whole-house remodels generate lots of construction waste and a lot of noise, so you might not be able to get any work done or get any rest if you stay in your home. And there’s also the issue of pets being easily stressed by construction noise. That’s why it would be more practical to find temporary accommodation. If you want to keep a closer eye on the progress of renovations, you could contact the contractor overseeing the project or visit the work site from time to time.
Make Sure to Vet a Remodeler Before Hiring Them
A whole-house remodel, or any home improvement project for that matter is essentially a collaboration between you and your contractor. That’s why you need to make sure the home or kitchen designer you hire is qualified for the job and someone you get along with.
Looking for remodelers in your area? Here’s a vetting tip: The number of years a remodeler has been working in the industry should give you a good idea of their level of expertise.
