The beginning of the new year is a great time to hit the refresh button on your goals! It’s a time to sit back and reassess what needs to be accomplished, but also what is realistic in your busy lifestyle. Is a remodel part of your 2019 “to do list”? How does one even begin the typical renovation process?
A great digital tool we always encourage our clients to use is Houzz. This is a fantastic site for inspiration that really helps to get your ideas flowing! They recently published an article titled “10 Things to Do for a Smooth Renovation.” Click here to view the article for their take on a successful remodel.
In our opinion the article provided useful tips but also real and relevant downfalls. An excellent way to avoid some of the pitfalls mentioned is to hire a Design-Build company instead of separate architect, designer and contractor. They’ll develop the best design for you, keep you on schedule for choosing selections, watch the budget for you and let you know all costs involved before work begins. Another fantastic “plus” to Design-Build is the entire construction process will be coordinated for you. With many Design-Build firms, you can determine how involved you want to be in making selections. Sometimes you might have an allowance and be able to shop around, other times a designer will accompany you to showroom visits. Alternatively, they can narrow down options for you and make recommendations. For most of us with busy schedules who want to be able to rely on professional guidance, Design-Build is the way to go!
