At Integrity Homes & Construction Inc., we have over 20 years of experience working on a wide range of home renovations. As you’d expect, during our years in the industry, we’ve learned a thing or two about how to make a renovation project successful. Our team wants to help you get the best results from your home renovation project, so in this article we’ll be going over three tips for how to do just that.
- Choose a Reasonable Scope. One of the most common reasons for home renovations to fail to live up to expectations is that the homeowners didn’t keep their project to a reasonable scope. While it’s fun to dream about extravagant luxuries, for a successful project you’ll need to prioritize the things you really need. You’ll get more out of your renovations in the long run if you focus on getting a smaller project exactly right rather than stretch your resources trying to do everything.
- Make a Realistic Budget. Going hand in hand with the tip above, our next piece of advice is to make a realistic budget for your home renovations. The best way to do this is to talk to a renovation expert such as one of our team members here at Integrity Homes & Construction Inc. to get a true understanding of the cost of the materials and labor that go into a renovation project. This will help you set realistic expectations and take an honest look at your finances in order to make the most of the resources you have.
- Decide What You Want to Splurge On Ahead of Time. Building on the previous tip, when you’re making your budget, it’s a good idea to decide what items are most important to you and what you’re willing to splurge on. Do this before you begin shopping for appliances or materials, as this will make it easier to stick to your plan in the moment. In addition, focusing on the items that are most important to you will make it easier to let smaller things go–for example, you may not get the exact trim that you wanted but will that really bother you when you have your new gas range to play with?
