Most people will do everything that is required for a home renovation, such as the prep, the planning, the implementation, and the finalizations. This will include things such as researching different design techniques, hiring the proper company for the job, and setting up a cleaning plan afterward. What are the things that people end up looking over, however? The factors that should be deemed as just as important, but aren’t often thought about?
Here at iRemodel, we want to discuss what some of these things are so you can be sure that all of your bases are covered before you get into the nit and grit of your upcoming remodeling project.
The Big Three
When it comes to maintaining a budget and making sure you save as much money as possible, there are three very important questions you should be asking yourself before starting this type of project. They are as follows:
- How much can you afford to spend?
- How much do you need (not want)?
- How much money will your renovation make value-wise?
Each step is an important consideration in every part of the process. In simplest terms, this big three equation is asking; how will this renovation benefit you money-wise in the present and in the future? When we talk about budget, we don’t just want to talk about its immediate results— we want to talk about how it will affect us long-term. This way, we are making the most out of our experience through a financial lens.
Prioritize Certain Design Choices
So, you have finally done all of the research and you know which company you want to work with. Let’s say at this point, even your design goals are planned out properly. Even with all of this preparation, have you determined which design choices are most important and which ones can end up being left out? If you have a budget, you also need to be sure that the choices you’re making fall within that budget as well. It can be quite easy to get carried away with a dream goal/vision, that you lose sight of how much you have to be spending.
We here at iRemodel recommend that you write a list with all of the things that are most important to your kitchen design. If this means you prioritize functionality and convenience over aesthetics, make sure your renovation choices align to that vision. If your priority is a more open concept space, be sure your design can match your vision while also accommodating that need. It can be easy to get lost in the looks of everything, so be sure that you’re prioritizing what you need and how you will be using the space to renovate it for maximum efficiency.
How Much Space Can You Work With?
As we previously mentioned, design ideas can be so exciting that you lose sight of things that are important such as convenience, utility and space. When you are planning out your design, always be sure to consider how much space you’re working with and prepare around that. This way, your layout can be completed with no bumps in the road. Delays are not just a waste of time, but are also a waste of precious money. Make sure you’re doing everything in your power to be the right balance of idealistic and, most importantly, realistic.
