3 Reasons to Start Planning A Renovation Now
Why should you start planning your renovation now? Planning ahead for all of the details, decisions, and resources needed for a smooth, well done renovation requires time. The more time you give yourself to iron out the planning stage's issues, the less stress there will be during the actual renovation! The only thing better than a great renovation is a painless one. Read our top 3 reasons to start planning a renovation below!
1. Your Finances Are On Your Mind
It's the start of a new year. Your resolutions are still on your mind, you're about to get a nice tax refund, and your home is starting to show its age. Don't put it off anymore and let another year crawl by. It's finally time for a renovation!
You have a nice refund check coming in the mail soon and you still have your finances on your mind. Ask yourself if a renovation is smart financially, and if so how much do you need to go about it. What are the costs? What are the benefits? What can you afford? Most importantly, what will this give back to you? A new renovation can pump new life and value into a declining home. The return on value outweighs the cost whether it's for a simple, small renovation or a whole new kitchen. The more you put into your home, the more it earns back for you.
2. You Can Pick The Perfect Time
Deciding when you'll start a renovation is almost as important as what you're renovating. You've probably got a calendar full of children's sporting events, grandchildren's visits, friendly get togethers, work trips, holidays and so much more. Plan early enough and you'll easily find the perfect time for your renovation without interfering with any other plans. After all, the last thing you want is a half finished kitchen during a big family gathering.
3. You Have Time To Find What You Like And What You Don't
After deciding on the budget and time, there's only one thing left to decide on. What do you want? Take your time to really sit down and find what inspires you, what you want to see in your home after the renovation, and what you like about it now. By starting early you give yourself plenty of time to decide and settle on your perfect renovation. A renovation can change 10 times if you rush through choosing the styles, decor, furniture, colors and more. This will cost you money, time and a fair deal of stress.
While you're searching for that perfect design, remember to keep an open mind. You have the time to adjust your design plans, so if they change multiple times you'll have plenty of time to adapt!
