Home remodeling projects are daunting. There’s no other way to say it. Even so, it doesn’t need to overwhelm you completely and dampen your enthusiasm. Sometimes, the easiest way to streamline your decision-making process is to set priorities. What are the biggest hurdles to overcome? And what changes can wait until later once those larger and more complex tasks are done? We’ll walk you through putting it all together!
Conquer the Master Plan Phase
Every home remodeling project begins with a well-defined master plan. From here, you can see the bigger picture even before you race towards the finish line. Phasing makes it all happen! Consider the convenience and inconvenience of certain rooms being inaccessible for the time being. Until the renovation is completed, it’s probably not a good idea to use them; this means bathrooms could become a bottleneck for everyone! Staggering out the transformations for each bathroom pays off in the end. Likewise, repairing or replacing the roof takes precedence over giving the kitchen a glamorous new look.
Adjust Budgets Based on ROI
Think back to when you first bought your home. You had to budget extremely carefully, and not just for closing costs! You probably had to shift some money around. And in the case of home remodeling, it’s perfectly fine to change your budget. Concentrate your calculations on which outcomes will bring you the most return on your investment. For example, choose energy-efficient windows over a sparkling new bathroom. You can then pour the money you saved from upgraded windows into your remodeled bathroom!
Imagine What Comes Next
Having a vision is going to tie the entire remodeling enterprise together. That’s why you have to, in no uncertain terms, keep your eyes on the prize. In other words, imagine what comes next! Add-on amenities such as outdoor kitchens, fire pits, and swimming pools are huge attractions, but they might not be feasible right now. Instead, think about reassigning that portion of the budget towards moving septic, water, and electrical lines. You can also focus on building the patio from the ground up or removing unwanted outdoor structures (such as tool sheds) if they no longer make sense for your new design!
Leave the Smallest Alterations for Last
This phase is where you can fit in some DIY objectives and repainting, getting rid of wallpaper, and manicuring the lawn!
