Are you looking for a way to spice up your home and make it more livable? A renovation is the answer. Making changes to your house can be overwhelming, but there are plenty of things that need to be done before beginning any remodeling project. We have put together an easy-to-follow guide that will take you through all the steps necessary to organize a successful home renovation.
1. Create a plan for the renovation to make sure you know what needs to be done
Laying out a plan for your renovation will ensure that you are prepared for the changes ahead. Make sure to include information about appliances, furniture pieces, flooring, and paint colors in your renovation plan, so nothing gets overlooked.
If you already know what needs to be done but do not know how everything fits together, look through magazines or online resources for inspiration on color schemes or house layouts until you find what you are looking for.
Additionally, if your renovation is going to include some construction or electrical components, make sure you have a plan of action in place, so nothing falls through the cracks!
2. Find reliable contractors that are qualified and affordable
Once you have a plan for your renovation, it is time to find contractors that will get the job done. Make sure to work with professionals only; do not cut costs by hiring unqualified people or doing some of the renovations yourself.
It would be best if you started looking for reliable home improvement companies at least six months before your planned completion date. This will give them enough time to book their appointments and plan for your renovation.
3. Hire an interior designer or decorator to help with color schemes, flooring, furniture placement, etc.
An interior designer or decorator will help with all the small details that you do not have time for. They can assist with color schemes, furniture placement, and even flooring if necessary!
If your budget does not allow for a professional design team, look through magazines and online resources to find inspiration on colors or styles before beginning your renovation.
Remember, do not buy any new furniture pieces or paint colors before the contractor comes to take measurements! You will want to be sure that all of your renovations are completed in one go so you can ensure everything fits properly and looks its best.
4. Set up an appointment with your utility company so they can come out and assess your home’s energy usage before the renovation begins
Since you will likely be making changes to your home’s insulation, windows, and heating system during the renovation process, you must set up a meeting with your utility company beforehand. This way, they can assess whether or not your house needs new equipment for all of the renovations to go smoothly!
The last thing you want is to finish your renovation only to find out that you need new appliances for the heating system to work correctly.
Additionally, suppose there are parts of your home’s insulation or windows that will be exposed during renovations (such as when removing old flooring). In that case, this is an excellent time to get rid of any drafts caused by missing insulation!
5. Make sure you have enough storage space in your new house by renting a storage unit or buying more shelving units
A big renovation project will likely result in plenty of debris. Make sure you have enough storage space for all the excess materials before beginning your renovations!
If you do not think that even a rented unit or an extra set of shelves can hold everything, consider donating old furniture pieces and clothes to charity, so they are out of the way without cluttering up your home.
An extra set of shelves is also a great way to make the most out of small spaces! So if you want more storage space without losing too much floor room, this might be an excellent option for you.
Remember that renovations can take several weeks or even months in some cases, so it will likely be best if all old furniture is removed before construction begins. This way, you will know that your storage space is adequate and clutter-free!
If this step is skipped, the renovation process may take even longer than expected since contractors need to run back and forth from a rented unit or an offsite location to store all materials safely.
6. Get rid of clutter around the house, including old clothes, shoes, and books
Spare yourself some time and stress by getting rid of any clutter around the house before renovations begin.
This includes old clothes, shoes, books, or even knick-knacks that are cluttering up your shelves! The last thing you want is for contractors to move all kinds of things to get through their job efficiently.
