Home Remodeling Checklist

Have you been dreaming of renovating your house? Home remodeling is an exciting experience, and it’s easy to get carried away with visions of the result. However, home renovations require planning to ensure the project goes smoothly.

Here’s a home remodeling checklist to help you get started.

1. Determine Your Objective

Before you dive into a remodeling project, determine how extensively you want to renovate. Are you planning on staying in your home for many years, or are you renovating to increase the resale value of your home? Also, consider the condition of other homes in your neighborhood and decide what renovations will give you a good return on investment versus what may be considered going overboard.

2. Create a Budget

Setting a budget is one of the most crucial parts of any home renovation because it will dictate what is and isn’t possible. Start by looking at your finances and determine how much you’re willing to spend. Make sure to account for incidental costs such as dining out during a kitchen renovation.

Once you’ve determined your amount, go back to things that inspired you and note the costs. It’s important that you and your contractor both have a good understanding of your budget and how much flexibility you have, so you can decide what features you absolutely want and which you may decide to do without.

3. Discover Your Design Style

One of the most exciting aspects of planning a home renovation is determining what you want the final design to look like. There are countless types of design styles, such as traditional, modern, contemporary, minimalist, farmhouse, coastal, and more. Choosing the one that suits you best can seem overwhelming.

Spend some time searching various styles online and imagine how they’ll look in your home and fit into your lifestyle. Also, consider how well different styles may look years later, and note how any design may fit within the square footage of space you’re working with.

4. Check the Calendar

Plan as early as possible for your home remodeling project and discuss a realistic time frame with your contractor. Include time to obtain any requisite building permits. Planning and choosing materials right away will help ensure materials will be ready when construction begins and avoid delays.

5. Pack Up/Declutter

Make your home renovation process easier by decluttering the area. Get rid of items you no longer use and pack other items so they’re out of the way, and there is a clear construction area in which to work.
