Renovations should be made to have your house have a complementary flair and not to make it as an overhaul. o Have a detailed budget for your project. – Calculate EVERYTHING from the nuts and bolts to the silks and light plates. o Research the best contractor for you. – Find the best contractor that suits your project, your personality and shares your design vision. Make sure to meet with at least 3 Designers or Contractors prior to making a decision. During the process do not get stressed over small issues, if someone failed to do something or maybe it delayed, don’t stress it out. One should be able to really define what style they desire and who they really are. Which styles are you really passionate about? One should be able to fully define their goals that should be achieved ultimately and even their style. As we all know, the biggest, most expensive and most detailed project in renovating your home is your Kitchen. When planning the design for your new kitchen, determine what suits your lifestyle; you’re growing needs and your aesthetics. Always keep in mind as well that your kitchen is critical to the resale of your home, so plan wisely. When designing it, it is good to take in details regarding storage, lighting as well as the hardware’s such as flooring and the cabinet. It is only you who can determine which space is enough for your family and so you should not take the designers word for it. It is therefore good to go through your plan once again and determine whether that space is really enough for you. No one knows your needs and the needs of your family as well as you do. The bathroom is the next complicated room to be renovated, as it has endless styles, choices and selections to choose from. When planning to renovate the bathroom, the door should never impede the use of any fixture.
