The decision to complete home renovations can be exciting and stressful at the same time. While you may have renovations that are necessary to the functional and comfortable features of your home, they can also mean lots of decisions to make and time spent waiting on the work to be done. Here are a few key tips to make your home renovations less stressful and more successful:
- Prepare to Work Around the Chaos– Depending upon the room(s) you are renovating, you may want to take measures to make your home livable while the construction is in progress. For example, creating a temporary “kitchen” stocked with food that doesn’t require cooking may be critical while your current kitchen area is out of commission. You may also want to schedule working hours so that you also have plenty of downtime in between construction crews.
- Set a Budget – One of the easiest pitfalls for home renovations is making lots of changes to the plan that start to eat into the budget. Once you’ve determined your max budget, work with your builder to stick to it by making strategic choices.
- Build a Realistic Timeline – It would be nice if every home renovation could be done in a week or less, but depending on what you need, this may not be the case. Setting a realistic timeline for the work to be done will give you clarity and reduce stress as you see the finished product come together.
