Renovating a home can be a long, expensive process. Many times, since you purchased the home yourself, you are forced to live in a construction zone for months at a time while the work is being done. But, that can sometimes be a good thing as becoming more acclimated with your space helps you to prioritize the renovation process. It always helps to have the support of friends and family during this time, especially if you are redoing the bathroom and have no running water!
- If you want to renovate your house one room at a time, consider living there a bit first so you get a good feel for the place.
- Decide first what rooms you want to renovate straight away and what can wait.
- Keep things like spare paint, because you never know when you can use them to renovate another room.
