Planning on remodeling your bathroom, your kitchen, or your entire home? It’s important to make sure that it’s done right the first time. Here are some tips on how to avoid some common remodeling mistakes so you don’t have to waste money trying to increase the value of your home!

Measure, Measure, Measure

The last thing you want is for your cabinets to be installed and then realize that there isn’t any room left for your fridge! Measure everything multiple times to confirm (get the measurements of your appliances too) write it down, and show your cabinet installer to compare plans.

Set a Realistic Budget

When remodeling, it’s inevitable that something unexpected might come up. Whether it be problems with the drywall, electrical problems, etc. it’s important to add a little bit of extra wiggle room into your budget for issues that might be found as the project goes on.

Managing Expectations 

HGTV makes remodeling look like a fairytale: easy and done in a week. However, remodeling is actually a longer process. You have to pull permits, get drawings, and then begin the project which could be delayed due to things like weather or scheduling. Although we love our HGTV shows as much as everyone else, it’s good to always remember that remodeling isn’t always as easy as production makes it seem.

Choose the Right Contractor

When choosing a remodeling company, the cheapest option might not always be the best one. The cheapest ones might end up cutting corners and in the end cost you MORE money!
