Before Remodeling Your Home
Remodeling your home is a major project and requires a lot of planning before anything begins. Asking yourself these questions ahead of time will prepare you for when your design-build team asks you similar questions. There are a lot of things to consider before a remodel and we couldn’t expect you to know everything beforehand. That is why our team is trained and experienced to ask you specific questions in order to get the most accurate idea of what you are envisioning for your project.
Remodeling your home is an excellent way to add your own personal touch. Trying to find everything you want in one house is pretty challenging but remodeling and adding to your home is easy! During a remodel you get to put your own creativity into every aspect of the process. Remodeling your master bathroom? You work with our designers to pick out tile, paint color, tub style, layout, sinks and everything else that goes into it. Consider the following before you begin your remodeling process, they might help you get a better idea of what you’re looking for.
Why Do You Want This Remodel?
The first thing to consider is your reason for wanting the remodel. This might sound like a rudimentary question but it is is incredibly important to the entire remodel process. If you are wanting to remodel for aesthetic reasons then our team knows that the look and design elements are going to be very important to you. But if you are wanting to remodel your home for better functionality and to improve the way you are living then how we design the layout and other aspects of the project will be vital. Or maybe you’ve just been thinking about getting this remodel for a very long time and you finally decided to make it happen. The reason you want the remodel is what will drive the process and what we will focus on as our main goal. Consider this and also think about your goals for the project. Is the purpose to open up more space? Or to convert a room into something more practical. There is generally a main goal people are trying to achieve when they are wanting to remodel. And establishing your reasoning and your goals is going to be a big help in designing your new space.
What Is Your Realistic Budget?
Creating a budget is the next step in the process and also the next question to ask yourself. Establishing your budget in the very beginning will make things run a lot smoother. Without a budget set into place your design-build team wouldn’t know which materials to get. If you aren’t quite sure what your budget should be based on your vision for your remodel, one of our team members can work with you to help establish something that works for everyone. But having a general idea of what you feel comfortable spending on a your remodel is a great help for everybody. That way you aren’t spending money on things you didn’t plan for and our team has a clear direction of where to start.
By establishing your budget early and being upfront about it you are actually helping yourself and your design team. This allows them to get the best materials for the best value. Pretty much the most bang for your buck. Without a defined budget your designers and contractors won’t know where to start shopping for materials because they don’t want to exceed your budget exponentially and they don’t want to aim low and have you unhappy with the outcome. Budgets are helpful and extremely important for any remodel!
What Are Your Plans For The Future?
Thinking about your plans for the future is a great thing to consider before a remodel because it really allows you to envision the different possibilities and outcomes. Because no one plans on getting multiple remodels throughout the years you should really think about what this is going to be like 10 or 15 years down the road. Are you planning on having kids? Are you planning to retire here? Will those factors change your plans for your project? You should also consider things like the amount of maintenance that this project will require. Especially for things like pools. Are you going to adequately be able to maintain it by yourself or will you need help? That is something to think about before getting a remodel. If you plan for the future now during your current remodel it will save you time and money from having to possibly alter it later on down the road. When we consider things like this our designers and contractors can build in certain features that will help make things easier in the future. There are so many elements that can easily be added during a remodel that will look great and help with accessibility and comfort of everyday life. Our team likes to be as thorough as possible and to ensure you will be happy with your remodel for many, many years.
