Updated: Feb 9

What Do You Want From Your Renovation

Of course renovations are a good idea but, you have to decide what are you looking to get from it. Depending on what is being renovated in your home, your property could see up to a 15-20% value increase. Some go through the remodel process to improve energy efficiency throughout their home. Others, want to improve the functionality of their space and enhance their lifestyle. Renovations without a goal or reason behind it, can be the cause for unnecessary stress and wasted money. No matter what the reason may be, it is your reason and you have to find it.

Properly Assess Your Budget


Renovations, for the most part, can be very expensive. Once you have figured out what it is you will be renovating and why, you can then start planning your budget. Most people don't have an idea of what the work is going to cost. Step one should be, researching your project and the average costs in your area. This will help build an idea of what the ball park will be. Secondly, assess your current financial situation to see if the project will be achievable. When planning your budget, it is important to note that construction projects can change in an instant. Planning for unexpected costs should be a must when budgeting for renovations.

Consider The Time


It is important to remember, that construction processes can take longer than expected. You are not only budgeting your money, you must also budget your time. Do you work from home? Are you renovating the only bathroom in the house? Do you have pets that can get in the way or get hurt? These are things to consider when renovating. Making arrangements for work, pets, or living in general should be accounted for. You must budget how long these arrangements must be made for. Just like planning for unexpected cost, you should also plan for unexpected delays. The process will be less stressful when you have a plan.

Know Your Design

A complete plan should also include, knowing what you want the finished product to look like. Go through the area or room you are renovating. What does it look like now? What are the little details? What colour scheme would you like to be present? The more in depth you review the design, the better the outcome will be. This also makes it easier for your contractor. He will now have an exact idea of what your vision is. If you need help with this process, looking into an interior designer service would be beneficial.
