23 Jun Guide to Planning a Home Renovation Project
With most big projects that people pursue in life if someone fails to plan, they plan to fail. This extends to home renovation as well. Now while a home remodels project may not feel as big as say a start-up business project or a commercial construction project, it can be just as complicated and stressful if not approached correctly. Because of this, adequate preparation is an absolute must.
Planning out your home renovation will allow you to set a direction for your project, which is vital if you’d both like the work to be finished in a timely fashion, and if you’d like the results to reflect what you’d envisioned entering the project. In addition to this, you’ll also find that if you enter your property renovation with a bulletproof plan of action, you’ll be less likely to come across complications when the work is being done.
However, creating a proper project plan for your home renovation and repair isn’t always easy to do, especially if you’re a newbie who’s never done it before. This is actually one of the main reasons why most people forgo this vital step and opt to just jump into their home renovation blind. But fear not; we are going to help you today. If you’d like to plan out your renovation project but aren’t quite sure how to, read our guide below.
1. Outline All Your Renovation Goals
When developing a project plan for your home renovation, the very first thing that you’ll want to do is to clearly outline your goals and define what it is you’d like the remodel to turn your home into with example designs that your team can draw inspiration from.
For this, you should include:
- Blueprints of the completed house after the project
- A list of desires and goals for your projects (e.g. the installation of a swimming pool)
- Project steps and realistic deadlines (which you’ll probably need to consult a professional for).
2. Set Your Project Budget
Next up, you’ll want to get your budget sorted. Everything that will unfold when your project begins, from construction to interior design and furnishing, will rely on your financial backing. As such, it’s very important to make sure that you’ve set enough money aside at the very beginning of the project.
To build a realistic budget for your project, you should:
- Ask for cost estimates from your home renovation experts or professionals that you intend to hire.
- Contact suppliers and set estimate prices for all the materials that your project will need.
- Set aside 10% of your total budget for any unexpected expenses that may come up.
