Some Do’s and Don’t’s of Remodeling

If you are thinking about remodeling your home what are some of the do’s and don’ts of taking on this task? It can be a stressful time and quite costly if you don’t understand some of the best ways to start. First let’s decide which room to remodel first. Once you have decided which room you will remodel, you will want to draw up some plans. What do you want the upgrade to look like? And one more question, are you looking to add value to your home or is it something you are deciding to do for your family?

One of the best places to start is the kitchen or the bathroom. For most homes unless the bathroom’s tiles and tub are older you can get away with just updating your grout on the tiles and refinishing your tub which will save you money that you can put to another project. You will want to replace the lighting, do some repainting and re-facing of your cabinets to improve your bathroom and save you money.

Kitchens are usually outdated and could use some updating. Keep in mind that a kitchen can be quite costly to update. One of the ways to improve the look of a kitchen is to re-face your cabinets. This will be the most cost effective. You will want to make sure it is a layout that’s not too outdated. It makes no sense to resurface cabinets that are clearly not worth updating. The kitchen can either make or break a home. You will want to make sure the appliances, flooring, lighting and counters are updated. If you want something simple to upgrade changing the lighting fixtures can be simple. Don’t replace them with dark lights, make sure it’s a fixture that can brighten up the room.

No one said remodeling, updating and improving your home are going to be cheap or easy but it doesn’t have to break the bank either. Any items that can be reused can help save some money. Reusing cabinets and tub can be essential to saving some money. A fresh coat of paint might be all that is needed. Something that is bright and brings light to the space.
