Does your bathroom or kitchen need an update? Maybe you’d really like to remodel your living room or one of your bedrooms? Whatever project you have in mind, you’ll need two things: a contractor and a plan. Home remodeling preparation isn’t always easy. But there are a few things you can do ahead of time to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible. Whether you’re planning for a small bathroom upgrade or a complete kitchen renovation, taking the following steps will help.
Make a Plan and Draw It Out
Having an idea in your head is very different from having a plan on paper. Drawing your plan on paper will allow you to ensure that you include everything you want in your home remodeling project. It will also help you track edits as plans change.
Figure Out if You Need a Permit
If your home remodeling project impacts the structure of your home, plumbing, or electric system, you’ll likely need a permit. Find out as early as possible if a permit is necessary for your remodel. If it is, apply for it right away.
This is the fun part! Start make decisions about the items you want to include in your home remodeling project: flooring material, tiles, appliances, paints. Write down everything you want so you can discuss it with your contractor.
