Remodeling Tips

Renovating any part of your home should be an exciting experience. Follow these suggestions to make the process more enjoyable for everyone.

  • Increase efficiency, not size. You can save a substantial amount of time and money by making the most of the space you already have, rather than expanding the size of a room. You can replace space-wasting shelves with pull outs equipped with racks.
  • You can also save money by donating fixtures to organizations such as Habitat for Humanity. Many items removed during a remodel are still usable, and you can reduce landfill waste and receive a tax credit by donating them.
  • If possible, leave any toilets and sinks in their original locations. You will save yourself the hassle of having new plumbing installed.
  • Don’t forget the space under the stairs. If your remodel involves a staircase, leave the space underneath open. You can install shelves, wine racks, or create a cozy reading nook.
  • The exterior of your home needs love too. Giving the interior a facelift is a great opportunity to accent the outside of your home. Add some statement planters near the front door, purchase a new mailbox, or plant a flower garden.

Mistakes to Avoid

Our professional designers will be with you for every part of the remodeling process, but it’s helpful to know what to avoid ahead of time.

  • Quality materials are worth the price. You truly get what you pay for and spending the money now will save you time and money down the road for quality materials.
  • Always have a plan. Many people believe a remodeling project means gutting entire rooms. This isn’t always the case, and we can often work around existing elements you want to keep in your home.
  • If you’re adding a small half-bath, don’t go for full-size appliances. Opt for a low-profile toilet and a narrow sink to fit the available space.
  • Lighting is an essential element. There are three types of lighting: general, task, and accent, and each has a purpose. You’ll want a nice mixture of the three types to create a welcoming ambiance.
  • Our last tip is to not go too trendy. You want your home to be attractive and stylish, but trends are generally quite short-lived. Unless you want to renovate again in a few years, don’t let trends take over. 

A Few More Tips

  • A good place to start with any project is with establishing goals. These can keep your project and budget on track!
  • Always pencil in a few extra days to anticipate any hiccups in the process.
