Whether you have owned your home for a while and want to start a home remodel, or maybe you have recently bought a fixer-upper and need to start somewhere. No matter the case: the big question is where should you start? The thought of a home remodel can be overwhelming and stressful, you are probably imagining yourself living out of boxes, on unfinished floors for years. This doesn’t have to be the case if you plan correctly. Millions of homeowners update and remodel their home every year, you can create your dream home too!
The best place to start when remodeling your home
First you have to write down and know what is important to you. This depends entirely up to you, some people are more considered with living rooms and dining rooms, where a lot of people spend time. Others are more considered with bedrooms and bathrooms. You have to know what you don’t like about your home and why you want to remodel it. If you have multiple areas and rooms you want to remodel, we recommend starting in one place/room and then go from there. This will prevent your whole home being in chaos.
Creating a stylebook and knowing your goal will help your remodel run smoothly. This will give you a plan and something to always go back to if you’re feeling overwhelmed. This can also be a place where you can write down your thoughts as they occur so that when you start your home remodelling projects – everything is all in one place.
It’s also important to think about your return on investment, any home remodel or upgrades you do will increase your home’s value – but what about money out of your pocket right away? For example, new siding or new windows can help your energy bills lower which is a great return on investment.
Understand you don’t need to remodel your home to make everything new. Sometimes a “new” feeling can be done with a paint job, new siding, or other smaller projects but will give your home a brand new feeling. This can save your pocket lots of money in the long run.
