If you’re thinking about renovating your Colorado Springs residence, there are a few things you need to consider before starting a project. Here are a few questions to ask yourself before remodeling your home.
What is My Overall Goal?
Before starting a project, you need to define your overall goal. Is it to have a bigger master bathroom with a larger tub to soak in at the end of a long day? Or do you want a kitchen that is open, airy, and accommodates a large number of people for big family gatherings? Getting clear on your desires is the first step in making the decision to remodel a space in your home.
What is My Budget?
You also need to determine how much money you have to spend. Kitchen and bathroom renovations can range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands. And costs can easily get out of control if you don’t have an idea of how much you have available to spend. Spend the time to crunch the numbers before you decide to start demo day. Then be sure to add an extra twenty to thirty percent to that figure for surprises.
Do I Understand the Time Requirements for This Type of Project?
Many online blogs and home renovations television shows make these types of bathroom and kitchen projects look like they only take a few days. In reality, a quality renovation can take up to several weeks or months. If you’re doing a big project like your kitchen or bathroom, this can mean having that part of your home out of commission for use during an extended period of time. Make sure to take this timeframe into account before fully committing to the overall project.
