Home Renovation Begins with a Good Plan

Home renovations can be greatly improved with a good plan from the onset.

A home remodeling project will greatly benefit from a carefully executed plan.
Home remodeling plans can help you achieve a successful outcome for your project.

Many factors need to be considered when planning a home remodeling project. Your investment of time and money can greatly increase the value of your property well beyond the expense of the renovation when done properly. Many homeowners experience a payback in excess of 100% to their investment with the benefits of working with us, our  wholesale pricing on finish materials and the quality installation of our workmen. 

Planning for a home remodeling project has many considerations for the homeowner/property owner. There is a budget or the expenses for the project, the design and look of the project, quality and installation of finish materials and length of the installation of the project as well as warranties as well as who will be handling the work.

Budgeting for your home remodeling project may not be easy and you are almost guaranteed that the project will cost more than you are planning. The pricing for a home remodeling project can be manipulated and controlled when you are willing to bend the scope for the finished project. The more rigid your expectations the less likely you will be able to make changes that may save you a considerable amount of time and money.

Make a good plan – A good plan starts with the initial interview at your home. We go over the requirements of your job and discuss alternatives and ideas to help make the space the best it can be. Our experience can help you find areas of consideration to help keep your project within the budget you are comfortable with.

Planning a bathroom remodeling project requires some investigation of bathroom remodeling trends and the costs associated with bathroom upgrades.

Bathroom Layout –

Most bathroom remodels will require that each fixture be placed in the same location as the original design dictated. If you are lucky enough to have the space to move items around then now is the time to consider a change of floor plan.

A bathroom layout remodel allows for the relocation of bathroom fixtures.

Walk-In Bathroom Shower –

Changing out a bathtub for a walk-in shower will reduce your Real Estate listing from a “Full Bath” to a “3/4 Bath”. Although this is considered a detriment to listing parties the potential buyer of a property will appreciate the updated look and operation of your bathroom. Consider a full size walk-in shower on your next bathroom remodel.

Bathroom Materials –

Materials change as fashions change in the construction industry. Recently travertine stone has been replaced with ceramic and porcelain tiles once again. The larger tiles of the modern design world have overtaken natural stone finish materials in bathroom remodel trends.
