Do you have plans for a home remodeling/renovation this summer? Don’t jump in empty-handed. Planning for a home remodel is an exhilarating experience! Going in unprepared, however, can make it a stressful one. Let us help!
How to Organize for a Home Remodeling
With a large-scale project like a remodel, it is very important to set goals. This way, we can determine the areas of the home that will be most affected by the remodel and how long the process will take. For example, if you are remodeling your kitchen, it’s also good to be aware of how the surrounding rooms can likewise be affected. Does this open or close the space? Is there enough natural light? Make sure you are realistic: the overnight remodels made famous by reality TV are not quite the reality of life. Your remodeled rooms may not be completed for many weeks, depending on the project.
Next, you should also declutter and clean the area. The rooms being remodeled will need to be completely emptied, so be sure to place the items somewhere safe and out of the way of any workers - and yourself. For large scale projects, it may be worthwhile to find storage in a garage or storage unit.
How to Schedule a Remodel
In 2022, many of us find ourselves at home more than ever. From working in the dining room to family zoom calls in the kitchen, our homes have become the center of our lives. This makes scheduling even more important. Plan your remodel around external schedules. Since we know remodels can take many weeks to complete, scheduling the long process ahead of time is key to adjusting your life to the project. The noise volume and crowd may make online meetings rough to plan, so work with your contractor to find the best timeframe so you can keep your life moving during the remodel.
What to Prepare for During a Home Remodel in 2022
Safety is a top priority of any project! Prior to the remodel, reach out to your contractor or remodel company to set up a safety plan. Let them know any special situations they may need to be aware of before beginning. You should also be prepared for dust and noise.
Your house will be going through a big change! Give yourself patience and remind yourself the discomfort is only temporary and that the new, beautiful remodel will be well worth it. With proper preparation and a top quality contractor, your home remodel process can be made simpler, getting you past the stress and into your newly-transformed home.
