So, you have made up your mind to begin the redesign process for one or more rooms in your home. Perhaps you have a major vision you wish to bring to life, or maybe you are at the stage where you have a minor concept, design, or feeling you are wishing to convey. You recognize that there are a number of considerations to make when it comes to starting this process, but what exactly is the correct order to do everything in, and how do you get started? In today’s blog, your Houston, TX interior designer provides a few important steps to consider when initiating the redesign process, as well as how our team can help.
Determine Your Budget
It goes without saying that plans, especially ones where money is involved, are the bread and butter of the home renovation process. Indeed, creating a plan helps you to set your priorities as well as detail where to begin. Further, it helps you develop an understanding of the time the process will require and the budget needed to complete the project.
When setting your design budget, it is best to “work backward” in the sense that you want to first identify a total amount that you are comfortable with spending. Drawing a hard-set line on your project budget will help you in the long run, in terms of savings, prioritizing components, and understanding where your funds can be allocated.
A major component to consider when establishing your budget is cost versus value. It is no surprise that the market is permeable and fluctuates to accommodate the times, and as such, home value can fluctuate as well. With that in mind, you do not want to pour funds into a renovation that will end up costing more than it is worth.
Acquiring Permits and Materials
Another important step to consider during your renovation is the need for specific permits and materials. Permits are often required in a variety of areas and municipalities, and these items help you avoid complications that can arise without them. Further, an understanding of the regulations surrounding the permits is crucial to ensure everything is being followed as it should be. For more information about this process, reach out to our team today.
Create A Timeline
Just as your budget is necessary to define, so is your timeline. Beginning a project with no end in sight will inevitably end up costing you more and will result in a higher chance of failure to complete. When you contact our team, we will set up an initial consultation to go over all of your expectations, wants, desires, budget, timeline, and more so that we can ensure the best services for the most reasonable price.
