Home Remodeling Do’s and Don’ts

Thinking a home renovation or remodel is in your future? Here are some important things to remember.

DO set a home remodeling budget.

And stick to it. Whether it’s installing a paver patio or adding a home addition, our budget- and style-conscious design professionals will help create the look and feel you’ve always wanted within your budget.

DON’T get too trendy when renovating your home.

What’s in and popular now often times means short-term popularity. Think about your room five years from now, will you still be happy? We are here to help make wise design choices while creating the serene bathroom, mouthwatering kitchen, comfy master suite or man-tastic man cave of your dreams.

DO create a decorating file.

Our project planner is just the thing to help you get started on your remodel or renovation. From paint swatches and cabinets to flooring options and fixtures, the project planner keeps samples of items you like all in one place. You can also check out our Pinterest and Houzz accounts for more design inspiration.

DON’T underestimate the time and money you’ll spend.

Sure, you could try to do it yourself, but there are many things to take into consideration that can get lost in translation such as moving and/or adding electrical outlets or plumbing, permitting and making sure you have all the correct pieces and tools to do the job right. The biggest thing many DIY-ers tend to underestimate is time and unforeseen costs. If you have no experience at home renovation projects, many circumstances lead to hiring a professional to fix mistakes in turn leading to longer remodels. Doing it right the first time can save time and your bottom line.
