In our previous blog, our team took a look at a few common home remodeling or redesign myths that serve as a barrier to beginning a new project. Though we agree that not everyone enjoys the art of remodeling, we believe it is important to express your character and personality in your spaces, as they are daily representations of you that you enjoy day in and day out. In today’s blog, your Houston, TX interior designer wanted to continue the theme of identifying barriers to an effective design, and offers major remodeling pitfalls that you want to avoid at all costs.
Not Ordering Enough Supplies
It goes without saying that, when it comes to redesign or remodel, the first thing that always comes to mind is appearance. After all, everyone wants to be able to host guests and show off their amazing eye for design, but bear in mind that you run into potential issues if you lose sight of your overall goals.
A major example of the above-mentioned phenomenon includes failing to stick to or even set a realistic budget to accompany your project. At the end of the day, the endeavor is not going to fund itself, and losing sight of your goals, budget, and more can create significantly more headaches than the process is worth.
As a solution, we recommend taking the time to plan and organize your project. This includes working with a professional to detail a timeline, setting reasonable goals and expectations, and ordering enough supplies such as flooring to account for error, just in case. To learn more about this process and how our team can help, give us a call today.
Updating the Wrong Things and Ignoring Details
In addition to ordering insufficient supplies a quick way to get in over your head is to hyperfocus on the wrong things and ignoring the details that truly matter. For example, have you started a project and became distracted with a minor element that, in hindsight, really didn’t matter all that much?
This same phenomenon can happen when shopping for flooring, fixtures, and more, and the last thing you want is to accidentally blow the funds allotted for other, more pertinent elements of your project. Further, some details that may seem minor to you may actually prove to be major obstacles if left unaddressed.
Failing to Compliment Original Architecture Style
Finally, original architecture style in your home is an important feature you should not ignore. While additions do not have to be the same exact style as your original structure, they do need to complement original architecture in order to create a more-involved finish.
