Dear readers, hope you all are staying home and keeping safe. The current situation has worsened due to the second wave of the pandemic and we are trying to keep ourselves safe by following all the necessary hygiene guidelines. Amidst all that is happening, there are few decisions and tasks that cannot be postponed.
For example, moving to a new place due to retirement or remodeling your home due to a new member joining the family. For us, both of these checked the list, as my father retired from his government job and moved to his own property while we are preparing to welcome a new member of our family this year. I will be sharing my experience and some tips that worked for us and also helped us in saving some money. Feel free to share more tips in the comment section below and
Planning and writing it down. Yes, as simple as this sounds it is absolutely imperative that planning should be properly done before spending money. From what changes do you need to how much will you be okay spending, everything should be decided. Be sure to write down and prioritize all of your remodeling goals. Make sure to keep your goals in focus and avoid getting side-tracked with smaller projects that can wait for later.
Figuring out how exactly you’re going to finance this renovation is the next big step. Take a look at your current finances and decide if more money is needed in the form of a credit card or loan unless you have a fairy godmother this step needs maximum planning as it would affect your future financial planning. Get hold of different brochures and research well, before you finalize any product or change during remodeling. We wanted to remodel our washrooms and bedrooms only, which is why we looked for different kinds of bathroom settings at many shops as well as online. Setting down with even shower replacement took a lot of discussion and research.
Look for decoration material in the local markets and experiment with some DIY projects if your pocket doesn’t allow heavy expenses to hire an Interior designer. Wallpapers instead of paint or plants instead of heavy decor, replace expensive items with products with more value and less on the pocket. When budgeting for a home renovation it is absolutely important that one must have some idea about how much everything costs. If you are hiring a contractor then make sure to find bids from at least three more to compare the prices.
If you are an experienced person with a knack for DIY projects then you are likely to be good at working around the changes and distractions of a house remodel. However, if you have decided to hire a contractor then be sure to be clear about your daily routine, make sure to discuss the timeline for the project and your everyday schedule. To ensure your home remodel goes smoothly and without much chaos, establish a detailed and thorough timeline and max budget for the project. Be patient because renovations take time and energy.
