After a time of careful consideration and planning, you have decided to give your home a new look. Even though renovating your home is a big expense, it is something that would last for years. Before you begin renovations, Meqasa.com would like for you to keep in mind five things to avoid. Here they are:
Expectations: Manage your expectations so you do not stress when you feel things are not going your way. With anything renovation or remodeling comes to an amount of stress, work with the home you have and be patient
Custom Work: This applies to the kitchen. Before you go ahead to change the kitchen layout be sure to think through what your new layout would be and if you would need some new custom cabinets. Make sure the cabinets you choose fit well into your new layout. There is nothing worse than misaligned kitchen cabinets
Appliances: Again with the kitchen, you do not want your fridge or stove sticking out a good two inches or more from the cabinets. Appliances are a part of the design so, consider carefully where you would place them.
Timeline: It is tempting to try and rush things. Assume that renovations would take twice the estimated time given. On paper, everything seems thought out but in real life, unexpected things happen that interfere with the timeline. It’s just the way life is. If everything completes in the estimated time then woo-hoo!
Have Fun: It’s easy to get sucked into the stress of renovations, and over think things while planning and executing. Orlando Soria of Homepolish says “ home renovation is an investment in future happiness”. Look to the future home that would come out of this remodeling to keep your excitement going
