Design First Then Renovate Your Home

I know plenty of homeowners who have a pretty good idea about what they want and often call me, to provide them with a decent design for their renovation project. This is okay for the remodeling contractor, but most of the time the homeowner doesn't get exactly what they want. They haven't gathered enough information and often end up disappointed in the future.

The first thing you need to do is design and plan your remodeling project. This could require you to check out books from your local library, purchase books from your local bookstores or look through pictures on the Internet, until you have found the perfect design for your new remodeling project.

One of the biggest problems I find with homeowners, as a contractor after the project is complete or even many years later, is the fact that they're not 100% happy with the design. Most of these people, never took the time to do any research to find the perfect remodeling project plan.

I'm not writing this article out of the goodness of my heart, I'm not writing this article to complain about contractors or homeowners, I'm writing this article to inform people working in the construction business and homeowners about the problems with designing and planning their future renovation projects.

It's very important to design first and build next. Everyone wants to start the project immediately and as soon as possible. This will often eliminate a nice plan and could lead to problems later. I can't stress this enough, make sure that you plan and design your project, before starting. This is very important and could save you a lot of frustration and even a lot of money in the future.
