When you’re prepping for a home renovation, there are a lot of things to think about. Figuring out your main goals for the space overall will help you tailor your plans as you go. Be sure to enlist the help and advice of experts to ensure you’re going to make positive changes to your home.
Figuring out your color scheme in your new space is always fun. One of the best places to start when determining your color scheme is with the overall feel of the room—are you wanting calming colors? Or bright cheery colors? Mainly wood tones and an industrial feel?
Asking yourself these questions will help you determine the foundational colors of the space. Then as you think about all the details, you might find yourself adding pops of color that don’t initially seem to fit with the color scheme but actually add depth to the room.
Picking your materials for your specific renovation project is often one of the most important but also most fun parts of the renovation process. As you think about your renovations do your research to figure out what kind of look you are going for overall. Depending on that desire, you’ll be able to get a rough idea of the types of materials you may be looking at.
This is especially important for kitchen renovations where the materials are not only important for their looks but also for their function. When redoing countertops, quartz and granite both offer great features.
Another fun aspect of any renovation project is the end layout of the space you are changing up. Sometimes the decision of where everything will be in the finished room is pretty easy—maybe your original room had good bones but was simply outdated. Other times, your renovation might involve making two rooms out of one or adding a new built-in desk space to your kitchen area.
As you think about your layout, make sure you think carefully about functionality. You might initially be set on kitchen cabinets with glass windows—but will you need that space as storage rather than as decoration?
As you figure out where you want to take your renovation, make sure you think through your non-negotiables. If you know the things you have to have in your new bathroom or kitchen, you can center the renovation around those things. Then, even if you have to change the plan a bit as the renovation progresses, you’ll still be satisfied with the finished product.
