If you are planning a remodeling, stop what you are doing and review this rulebook. We want to help save you time and money with these six remodeling rules.
The Remodeling Guidebook:
Rule 1: Keep up with the decades. If you are not planning on remodeling again, try to keep your home’s remodel timeless. Think about if the design will go out of style quickly or if it is just too trendy. Your best bet is to stick with the classics when remodeling.
Rule 2: Incorporate more storage. We are pretty sure that no homeowner says that they have “too much” storage in their home. That is because we can always use more storage. If you are planning a remodel, make sure to add more space for your belongings. From furniture to closets, always keep storage in mind.
Rule 3: Focus on what you love. Now is the time to incorporate what you love into your home’s design. If you love golf, add a putting green in your backyard. If you love to cook, add more counter space and high-tech appliances to the kitchen. The remodel is about your needs, do not forget that.
Rule 4: Emphasize the home’s charm. A lot of times, we purchase homes because of their character and charm. If you loved the ceiling’s arches, emphasize them in the design. Take what you loved about the home and draw attention to those factors.
Rule 5: Paint colors set the mood of a room. Have you ever noticed you feel more peaceful in a certain color room? It is because paint really can set the mood of your room. Decide what mood you are going for then choose paint based off of that. If you want to create a den feel, try using a dark gray. If you want to create a cheerful feel, try using a light blue.
Rule 6: Comfort is key. You are living in the home that you remodel, aren’t you? Make sure that you choose items that are cozy. Odds are you will have to live with it for awhile and comfortable always wins.
