Remodeling your home is a big undertaking, even if the project itself seems fairly small at first, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the process. Here at Artisan Building & Design, we want to make remodeling your home easy and convenient, so we’ve put together this list of the top 5 tips we have to ensure your next remodeling project is a smooth operation from start to finish.
- Do Your Research – One of the first steps of successful remodeling is sitting down to consider your goals for the project, so you have a clear idea of what you want the final result to look like. Consider your budget and how this remodel will fit in with the rest of your home, and use that information to help you decide on the materials you want to use, colors, sizes, finishes, and other design elements.
- Set Your Priorities – This is important no matter what, but if you have big plans for your remodel or anticipate having to do things in stages, knowing what needs to get done first is extremely important. Decide what you need, what you want, and what would be nice to have, and plan your remodel from there. This is an important step for budgeting purposes, as well as scheduling.
- Communicate Clearly – All that planning from steps 1 & 2 will come into play when it’s time to communicate with your contractors. Make sure you clearly outline your desires and budget so that everyone is on the same page about the remodel. Maintain that clear communication throughout the remodeling process, and always speak up if you have any questions or concerns.
- Account for Disruptions – Remodeling is likely going to disrupt your daily life, so try to plan for adapting your schedule or living arrangements as much as you can before things even get started. For example, if you work from home, it might be a good idea to plan to head to a quieter environment like a public library, coffee shop, or a friend’s home so that you’re able to work while the remodeling is going on.
- Stay Involved – While you certainly don’t want to hover around the remodeling crew, it’s a good idea to visit the work site and check in regularly to stay updated on progress, provide feedback, and express any questions or concerns that may arise.
