Tips for Making Your Remodel as Smooth as Possible

If you're going to start a remodeling project, you'll want to make that experience as easy as possible. From basement or kitchen remodeling to room additions, there are a lot of considerations that go into any project.

Just getting started on a remodel? Here are some tips inspired by The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI):

Tip #1: Plan Ahead. Planning is the number one way to make everything a little bit better. The more you plan, and the more detailed your plans are, the less likely you are to encounter unpleasant surprises and big roadblocks. Look at every aspect of the remodeling, from how it will change your home to how much it will cost to how much of a time investment it will be.

The more you think ahead, the better off you will be in the long run!

Tip #2: Hire a Professional. It can be tempting to try to take on a major home remodel by yourself, but that could easily end up being more work, more time, and more cost than hiring a professional to help you right from the beginning.

Professional contractors not only bring unique skills for planning, designing, and building your remodeling project, they also have insight from experience. They know building codes and creative ways to stretch your budget. A quality, customer-focused professional is going to help you see what you want every step of the way.

Tip #3: Make a Realistic Budget. One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make when planning their remodeling is guessing at the budget. Often that guess will be far too low to come close to the cost of what they actually want, or alternatively, will include many more features that drive the price up unnecessarily.

Start with a bottom line: how much can you spend? How much are you willing to spend? What's the cut off? Knowing that number will help you as you prioritize design elements, products, and materials.

Choosing your materials and products wisely is important. Don't always go for the least expensive item, but don't necessarily jump to the most costly, either. There are often high quality alternatives that will work great in your space without ruining your budget. Talk to your contractor and keep an open mind to suggestions that will help you enjoy your space for less.
