Whether you’re looking to update your home’s design or upgrade your features, when it’s time for a home remodel, taking the first steps can be intimidating. Between design, contracting, and budgeting, home renovations are a tall task for anyone. Make sure you’re prepared for a home remodel by planning thoroughly. But where to start? Here are some tips to help you plan for a spring home remodel.
Evaluate Your Needs
First, you’ll want to make sure you inspect your home for any of needed upgrades, redesigns, and replacements. Whether you need to fix an aging roof, make your kitchen more functional, or replace your windows, these will constitute your list of “needs” for your remodel. Look for areas of your home that will need work or that could have fallen into disrepair. Common areas for damage that may need replacing or work during a remodel include the basement, outdoor stonework, siding, roofing, and plumbing. You’ll also want to make sure your windows and doors are properly sealed before taking on a remodel in the spring.
Create a Wish List
After sorting out your home’s needs, you should also make a list of “wants” for your remodel. These wish list items don’t have to be necessary upgrades or repairs, but can be redesigning, new features, or other additions that may increase your home’s value and make it more functional. Whether you want to build a deck or pergola, add landscaping to your outdoor space, remodel your kitchen, or upgrade your bath fixtures, adding these things to your wish list will help you figure out what fits into your budget for a spring home remodel.
Once you have your wants and needs in order, you can prioritize and properly plan your home remodel. Figure out what is most essential in your remodel to help you schedule the project and budget appropriately. This is where a professional can make a huge difference–contractors will be able to advise you on scheduling and budgeting to ensure your home remodel goes off without a hitch.
