What better time to take on a new remodeling project than Spring? The weather is nice and mild, and it represents a time for renewal and change. Spring is the perfect time to get ready for the summer, and a remodel can help make the warm months even better. How do you go about taking on the Spring remodel project? Depending on the scale of the project, it may not be as simple a task. There needs to be a level of planning and organization when planning your remodel if you want things to go smoothly. Here’s a step-by-step look at how to plan your Spring remodel. 

Start Off with a Vision for Your RemodelNewton Design-Build Remodel

It’s crucial to know what you want from the get-go. What are your goals and expectations for your remodel project? Create a list of things that you want to include in your remodel, like “must haves” and “want”. Think of it as a wish list and be as detailed as possible. Do you want your new space to be cozy and intimate or open and airy? Think about color and fixtures and anything else that you’d like to include in remodeling your space. 

Prioritize Important Features of Your Remodel

Draw on your list of wants and needs prioritize to keep things on track. Like with many projects, you cannot accomplish all that you have in mind to do. Think of your budget and the amount of time that you have to complete it. Prioritize getting the features that are most important to you and work on those first. The less important features can be tackled further down the line. Is this a DIY project, or do you need a licensed contractor for the job? Prioritize, prioritize, and prioritize!

Set a Budget and Determine a Timeline

You have to think about your budget and timeline when planning your remodel project. If you are limited to a budget, you have to be careful about spending. You don’t want to put yourself in trouble by running out of money before your project is completed. How much time do you have to complete the project?

You may find that time and money are both limited and that you have to work a bit harder to stay within the boundary of what’s possible. If you find that you have to budget, accept that reality. You may have to be a bit creative in your approach to your project if you want it to be a success. 

Shop Around for Contractors and Compare

Rather than go with the first contractor you come across, it’s smart to check out a few different contractors to find the right fit for your project. Keep your goals and budget in mind at this stage in the process. A low bid from a contractor shouldn’t quickly appeal to you since you may end up getting exactly what you pay for. If a contractor underbids, you may find that the contractor doesn’t have much experience or that the quality of the materials may be subpar. Do your homework when looking for a contract for your home remodel project by checking out online reviews and testimonials, finding out how many years of experience the contractor has working on similar projects, and confirming that the contractor has the proper license and certifications.
