3 Tips to Prioritize Remodeling Projects
So many remodeling projects…where do you start?
It’s easy when you only need a kitchen or a bathroom remodel. But what if you need to remodel several rooms in your home, and you’re not sure where to start? You have to consider the order of importance — which project do you need finished the soonest, and which can wait until the end? However, that can sometimes be difficult to sort out. Here are a few tips to help give you a clear picture of where to start on your home remodeling projects.
This may not be the most intuitive choice, but decluttering your home will give you a chance to see it a little more clearly. Clutter can not only make the home look busy but it can also fog your mind, so that assessing your home and remodeling projects that need to be done feels overwhelming. Get rid of anything you no longer need and put everything you do need in its proper place. You may need to rearrange certain rooms to get a clearer picture of them. Cleaning may also make you more familiar with certain flaws in your home, so that you can see what most urgently needs to change.
Once everything’s been cleaned, decluttered, and tidied, you can take an honest look at your home. This is where you want to consider your priorities. What remodeling projects need real repairs that will make an impactful difference on the function of your home? What remodeling projects are more about updating the cosmetics. As with anything else, you want to tackle the deeper issues first and then work your way out to those easier, cosmetic remodeling projects.
Let’s say you want to do a bathroom remodel and a room addition, but the bathroom remodel is needed to fix water damage in the space and the room addition is something you want to add value to your home. Both projects are important and valid, but one is more urgent than the other. The safety of everyone in your home and the safety of the structure of your home should come first. It also doesn’t make sense to invest in an addition that will add value to your home if you still have glaring issues that will lessen that home value and drive potential buyers away.When it comes to your remodeling projects, what’s first on your list?
