You might have been pondering for quite some time about the repairs and home renovations…
Tips For A Less Stressful Remodel
- Be realistic about time frame
Of course in a perfect world, a remodel would be accomplished exactly on time or even early. In the real world, however, there are factors that are beyond the control of you or your contractor. In an older home, there can be surprises lurking once walls are opened up. Newer homes are not always without surprises either. Don’t plan your party for the day after a remodel is scheduled for completion.
- Make Careful Decisions
Changing your mind before construction or demolition starts is one thing, however after a remodel starts it can cost you time and money if you decide to change your mind. Talking with an experienced contractor like Alliance Home Design can help you be sure of your decisions and make sure you are satisfied with you remodel job.
- Where To Stay?
It is important to budget for accommodations and extras during a remodel that is extensive enough for you to have to leave your home for awhile. Air BnB or other booking services can help you find good accommodations if you need them during a remodel. Some people take vacations or trips to stay with family during kitchen remodels and similar.
- Consider How Much Value You Are Adding
If you are having sticker shock at how much remodels cost it is important to realize that you are adding a lot more in equity to your home. A $10,000 remodel could add many times that to the value of your home. If you are considering selling your home in the future, you could be making a very good investment in your future.
- Have Some Fun With It
Not all aspects of home renovations have to be serious. Plan some fun touches that are solely for your enjoyment and comfort regardless of the practicality of the larger project. A wall safe or some other touch you have always wanted might not cost a lot but add a lot to the level of your satisfaction with your entire remodel.
