Mistakes to Avoid During Your Home Renovation
For many people, remodeling a home can be a vexing experience, rife with potential blunders. However, it’s important to recognize that you can keep needless stress to a minimum by steering clear of the most frequent errors that most homeowners make during the renovation process. The surest way to avoid the following common home renovation mistakes is to be aware of them.
Not setting a budget. No matter how extensive—or minor—your renovation project is, you should set some financial boundaries for yourself before you get started. To prevent being blindsided by unexpected developments during the project, you should also be sure to set aside some money for any unanticipated costs—to be on the safe side, reserve at least 15 percent of what you expect the project to cost.
Not considering all your options. Before you embark on your home remodeling project, you should take the time to go through as many of your options as possible. When you’re choosing a new countertop, for example, don’t just automatically opt for marble—instead, consider what material works best for your home and your needs.
Taking the wrong measurements. Make sure that you know the limits of the space you are working with. Mismeasuring—or failing to measure—the space where your new cabinets are set to go, or where you want to place your new bathroom sink, can lead to frustrating and expensive delays in your project. Working with an experienced home renovation professional can reduce your chances of making costly mistakes.
