5 Remodel Organization Tips
It doesn’t matter if you are remodeling your entire home or just one room, remodeling can be stressful. And that doesn’t even include how much it can cost. The best way to keep some of that stress at bay is to stay organized. It helps you stay accountable and operate on deadlines. Knowing when things get done and where everything is can be a huge life saver. Here we go over 5 remodel organization tips.
1. Make A Board Of Inspiration
There are so many different places you can go for ideas now. All of the social media platforms from Instagram to Pinterest are full of creative ideas. Also, you can create your own boards online or print them off and make them at home. You can make a board for each room or one board for your whole home. But no matter how you do it, knowing what you want to do and are going to do definitely helps. So we recommend having a board.
2. Hire The Right Contractor
It goes without saying that you get what you pay for. Home contractors seem like a dime a dozen. Research before you choose one. Check with the Better Business Bureau and other accrediting agencies. Check Google reviews. Make sure that it is someone you can trust. Go over the entire plan with them. Know when work will start and when to expect completion. The right contractor will be completely transparent and communicate with you throughout the entire project.
3. Put Away Expensive Items
Remodeling can get messy. Things can get broken. It’s just the ugly truth. Things like jewelry and furniture can go into storage. Anything that isn’t daily use should be put away. Expensive rugs and floor items also need stored out of any work areas. Not only will this keep them safe, but also opens up the work area.
4. Clear Out Old Things
Now is the perfect time to get rid of some of those things you no longer use. Some things can be thrown away while others might make it to a garage sale or donated. Either way, there is no time like the present to do a little inventory and organization of your belongings.
5. Plan For The Unexpected
Sometimes things don’t always go as planned. It is not uncommon to run into issues during a remodel, or completely change your mind about what you thought you wanted. Budget a little extra for this. We suggest about 20% more. Just in case.
