Thinking About Some Home Renovations? Consider These Top Renovation Tips!
Renovation Tip #1 – Make a Plan
One of the most important aspects of your renovation is having a plan ahead of time. Know exactly what it is that you want to do in your home, and relay that information to contractors that you get estimates from. Once you hire a contractor, stick to that plan. Adding things after the fact adds costs, and it also increases the chances that your renovation will take longer or that mistakes will be made.
If you know that you want to make some design changes in your home and aren’t sure which direction you want to go, the interior designers at B&G Interior Design are here to help. Maybe you want more space in your kitchen or perhaps give your living room a makeover, but just don’t know where to start? We can help. Our consultants will talk through ideas with you and figure out what fits your lifestyle, taking into account your design budget and timeline. So if you don’t already have a plan, let us help you make one.
Renovation Tip #2 – Determining The Renovation Value
Some projects that add significant value include replacing doors, adding or replacing a deck and doing minor kitchen and bath remodels. Other “vanity” projects like swimming pools and the addition of a deck do not provide the best return on your remodeling investment.

Renovation Tip #3 – Avoiding Renovation Mistakes
There are some common mistakes that people make when doing a home-renovation project. One of those is over-customizing. While you do want to be able to enjoy your home, putting too much of your personality into it can reduce its value. For example, a significant mistake you could make is even if you aren’t using a bedroom, you shouldn’t remove it to try to increase or improve a living room or other area. You never know if you might sell your home one day, and if you do, you want it to be as valuable as it can be. Another mistake is going too big with the project. For example, there rarely is a need to completely rearrange your kitchen or bathroom in a way that requires the costly moving of water, electric and gas lines.
Renovation Tip #4 – Do Some of the Work Yourself
Unless you are a contractor or serious handyman, you are probably going to want to hire someone to do your remodel for you. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do some of the work yourself to save money. Determine which projects you can do, and which ones you can’t. Since a big part of your renovation cost is labor, you can save some serious cash by doing tasks like demolition or cleanup yourself.
