Plan in advance
Are you ripping out an old kitchen, are you going to be short a bathroom for the foreseeable future or are you planning to turn a spare room into an office? If you’ve got work going on, you need to make sure that you can carry on with day to day life. If you’re just painting a bedroom, it’s easy to find a solution. You could move the kids in with you for a night or even stay with a friend or a family member for a day or two. If you’ve got no kitchen, or there’s extensive building work going on to extend the house or convert the attic, you may need to give your living arrangements more thought. You could consider options like living in a travel trailer or a motorhome for a couple of weeks, you could ask your parents if you could move in with them or you may think about finding a short-term rental. Think about the scale of the work, and whether it’s viable to stay at home or not. If you’re prepared, you can make plans long before the builders arrive.

Stick to your budget
If you’ve ever watched home makeover shows on TV, you’ll know all too well that it’s easy to go over budget. When you’re planning a remodel of any type, it’s so important to have a budget in mind and to stick to it. Work out exactly where your money is going, and try and to set aside a small contingency fund. Every aspect of the project should be planned out in advance. If you don’t have a bottomless bank account available, take a look at this page for advice about remodeling on a budget https://kitchensacramento.com/ultimate-home-remodeling-renovation-guide/. If you’re searching for building firms, kitchen fitters or interior designers, get several quotes before you make a decision. If you’re shopping for furniture, accessories or soft furnishings, shop around for the best deals. Update your budget as you go, so that you know exactly how much you’ve already spent, and how much is left in the kitty. Keep track of payments you have made, file invoices and keep receipts.

Get involved
As a homeowner, you want the remodel to run as smoothly as possible, so it pays to get involved. You don’t have to become a site manager or devote all your spare time to overseeing the project, but it’s wise to keep in touch with contractors, pop in and see how things are going, and don’t be afraid to ask questions if the remodel is delayed or you’re unsure about the quality or speed of work. If you’re not sure what kinds of red flags or mistakes you should be looking out for, it’s worth reading this article https://www.hgtv.com/design/decorating/clean-and-organize/top-25-biggest-renovating-mistakes-pictures.
