How to Prepare For a Full Home Renovation

How to Prepare For a Full Home Renovation

In order to launch a major home renovation successfully, a significant amount of time and effort must be put into each step of the project, no matter how small it is. Today our team from iRemodel Home Renovations is going to cover with you some of the best ways to get your home and family ready for your home renovation project so that your renovation can be a success. Let’s get into preparation tips.

Declutter Your Home

When you are clearing your space so the renovation can take place, it’s important to get rid of any unnecessary furniture pieces and either throw them away or put them into storage. You can also think about organizing a garage sale or donating items you no longer need.

Have a Budget & Plan

Having a detailed idea of the budget and plan will be critical to the success of the project. Guidelines for budgeting, allocating emergency funds, estimated timelines, defining the project’s stages, and listing the essential materials are all important.

Update Your Security System

When you start a renovation, there will be contractors, delivery people, and others all working on your property. This means adding security features like video doorbells or smart locks is great to keep your home safe and protected at this time.

Inform Your Neighbours

A lot of noise can come from a home renovation, this means informing those around you can help get them prepared. It’s also important that you don’t majorly disturb those around you with your renovation. 

Get Your Family Renovation Ready

If you have small children, arranging childcare services during big renovation days can save you and them from stress as well as finding an alternative living space during this time might be an option to look into.

Make a Plan for Your Appliances

When you have a home renovation, sometimes it’s best to buy smaller appliances that you can move to the basement to use. This could include a toaster oven, a mini-fridge, or an air fryer. Whichever suits your needs.

Arrange Your Meals

If your renovation takes place in the kitchen, you may need to plan accordingly. This means setting you a temporary kitchen or getting takeout to avoid any last-minute hassles.

Organize Your Receipts and Contracts

You should always keep track of your expenses whether this is through a physical folder you keep, or by having a cloud storage system to keep track of digital receipts. Creating calendars or spreadsheets can also be handy to ensure critical information is kept track of.
