So you have spent weeks debating over color palettes for the living room, and you are tired of your partner shooting down all your design ideas. A home renovation project can wreak havoc on a family by bringing everyone to the brink of insanity. While it is definitely exciting imagining how beautiful your home will look once the improvements are complete, it can be stressful getting there.
If you are in the process of remodeling your home, it is important to try and remain level headed. Often, stress can be contributed to the issues that arrive between professionals and homeowners. So what are some common stressors, and how can you best prepare yourself? Today, we are going to focus on how you can have an organized remodeling experience. Let’s take a look!
Where Do I Start?
Whether you are set on launching a major home renovation project or simply gutting out your landscape, most homeowners do not know where to begin. You may be overwhelmed with questions such as:
- Do you need to hire professionals?
- Will your permit require permits?
- Will my property be able to support a new structure?
If you have never done a remodeling project, the lack of knowledge can be even more overwhelming. At the onset, develop a general scope of the project. Write down in details exactly what improvements you seek to make.
You will need to have a clear vision of what you want before you start your project. If you have not already, it is time to start looking through magazines and websites to see what colors, textures, furnishing, and flooring that you like. Websites like Pinterest can be helpful in developing design schemes.
Once you have made the final decision on what type of design scheme you want, you should piece it together and create a vision board. You can purchase a large bulletin board to place your color swatches, pictures of room ideas, flooring samples, and other items that lend to the design process.
When developing your vision board, ponder over these questions:
- Do you desire the space to feel warm and inviting or cool and relaxing?
- Are you going for a more sophisticated feel or a casual feel?
- What will be the primary function of this room?
- Who will be spending time in this room?
The answers to these questions can be rather helpful during the planning process.
After you have collected your answers to all of the questions, curated your vision board, and done your research, you should be able to begin your remodeling process with ease.
