As you officially say goodbye to summer to bring out the cozy throw blankets to snuggle and scroll through the latest TikTok decor trends, you might indulge in the idea of what you want your place to look like. Of course, we know that changing your living space isn’t a walk in the park, but who are we to say no?
Here are a few tips for when you finally decide to remodel your place. Before we get into further detail, let’s clarify one tiny point: renovating and remodeling are two different things. These terms are interchangeable, yet, they are drastically different. The former is integral with restoring and reviving, whether repairing or rebuilding. In contrast, the latter alter a room’s layout, style, structure and purpose. Now that that’s out of the way, here are 4 things to keep in mind when remodeling your home
First and foremost, have a Budget
No matter your home improvement project, it will cost you, but it will be an investment in the long run. One way to keep it under control is to do your research before ever picking up a tool and to have a contingency fund for any unexpected costs. Know your budget and stick to it.
Functionality and Storage Space
If you’re going to do it, you might as well do it right, right? For instance, declutter your space before the remodel so you know what to keep, recycle or donate. As a result, you’ll be more organized and have more room to breathe, knowing everything is in its proper place. In addition, you’ll also want to consider who else besides you will benefit. Who’s coming to dinner? How many guests for your next movie or game night? This will help you figure out the interior ergonomics so that you and your friends move naturally within the room.
Set the dates
It all comes down to breaking down a project into its basic tasks, then planning them. Writing plumber and electrician appointments on a calendar or a timeline in list format can be pretty useful.
Your style, just like you, is ever-changing. It’s never a one-size-fits-all, thankfully. So remodeling is the perfect time to change it up and get creative; browse through a plethora of design styles and color palettes, mix and match them, and play with shapes and textures, too. The possibilities are endless, and the goal is to add a touch of YOU with intention.
