5 Tips for Remodeling
Thinking about remodeling your home soon?
Not quite sure where to start in the remodel process or how to go about it the right way?
Worried about sinking money into a home without seeing a future ROI?
Remodeling doesn’t have to be stressful, messy or put you over budget. It can be a simple, straight-forward and easy to complete process when you have the right pieces and plan in place.
When it comes to remodeling your home, there are a few insider secrets that will help you make it a successful project:
- Know Your Vision (and expectations)
Having a plan when you start the remodel process is CRUCIAL. Having a solid vision and measurable expectations of what your space will look like following the completion is the number one way to be satisfied with your remodel. A great way to do that? Create a future 3D Design of what the remodel will look like.
- Be PRACTICAL
Too often, practicality and functionality are overlooked and the different assets chosen for a remodel are not practical and take away from the value instead of adding to it. When choosing anything from fixtures to countertops make sure they can not only withstand the test of time and practical use, but also that they are cohesive with the value and style of your home. Whether you plan to sell in the future or not, a remodel project that is overzealous can end up being a hard sell and a huge loss.
- Know Your Style
Does your current home have a distinct style? Maybe you’re starting from scratch with the style of your home or want to upgrade or change the current style?Here are a few tips for establishing a style during your remodel:a. Ask yourself, “What do I want to live with for another 5-10 years?”
b. What is in line with current design trends?
c. What will match the current style of my home?Not only do you have to live with the design if you stay in your home, if you DO decide to sell it has to be a design that makes a statement, while also amplifying the best assets of your home, without distracting from them.
