Our team at Artisan Building & Design knows your home is important to you, and we want to help you make it the best it can be. We have extensive experience in the home improvement industry, and you can count on us to make your renovations a success. In our experience, the key to a successful home improvement project is the planning stage, so we have put together this article to go over a few key things to consider before you get started.
- Priorities – When planning a home improvement project, we encourage you to think about what changes you would like to make, then consider which of these changes will improve your day-to-day life the most. We encourage you to prioritize improvements to your home’s functionality over purely cosmetic issues.
- Budget – Another key thing to think about before starting a home improvement project is financing—you need to know how you will pay for the project and how much you have to spend before committing to anything. We encourage you to secure funding and make a budget for the project as early as possible in order to allow you to move forward with the right knowledge to make informed choices.
- Return on Investment – If you plan to continue living in your home indefinitely, this last point is less important, but if you plan to sell your home within the next five to ten years, it’s worth considering which changes will get you the biggest return on your investment. Things like kitchen and bathroom renovations tend to result in the highest boost to your home’s resale value, while cosmetic changes tend to have low return on investment.
