Steps you can take today to start planning your future home renovation
Ready to start planning for a future home renovation? It’s important to get your project off on the right foot by planning properly and anticipating future costs and complications. In this guide from All Canadian Renovations, we will go through a few renovation planning steps you should definitely think about before you get started.
Research Winnipeg home renovation contractors to find the right home renovation company for your project
First, you should make sure that you find experienced Winnipeg contractors like All Canadian Renovations to handle your job. When searching for a renovation company, leave no stone unturned. Check online reviews, ask for interviews with past customers, get referrals from friends, set up interviews, and do your homework to make sure you’re working with a reliable, reputable team of professionals that will make your dream a reality.
Get inspired by searching through top renovation websites
There are a lot of places where you can get inspiration and guidance for your future home renovations. A few top websites for this include:
Know your interior design and décor style (but be open to options)
Are you interested in a modern home with a sleek and streamlined interior? A rustic, charming farmhouse style? Something in between? It’s important to take some time to learn more about your personal interior design style.
But it’s also a good idea to stay open to options! Your home renovation team may have some great ideas that may seem “outside the lines” or different at first but will end up being an excellent investment in your home.
Come up with a budget for your future home renovation (and budget for the unexpected)
It’s important to have a realistic budget for your home renovation. Renovation costs will ultimately depend on a variety of factors. Some of the most common factors are the room(s) you are renovating, the construction of your home, the types of materials you want to finish with that will dictate the cost. Knowing your budget and clearly relaying your budget to our team can go a long way and help with the overall satisfaction of the renovation.
So, think about what renovations you want to be done to your home, and consider the cost of each individual aspect of the renovation. Make sure you have enough money to accomplish your goals – and be sure to build in a cushion of about 15-20% of your budget to cover unexpected costs or to add “nice-to-have” additions during your project!
Think about a realistic project timeline
Renovating an entire house will usually take about 5-10 months, depending on the extent of the project. Individual rooms are much faster – kitchen renovations tend to take about 6-12 weeks, and bathroom renovations usually take about 4-6 weeks. Renovating living spaces, bedrooms, and other areas that require no changes in plumbing, utilities, appliances, etc. may only take 1-2 weeks. However, this is dependent on the scope of work requested.
The best way to get a realistic estimate of your project timeline is to work with an experienced renovation contractor. With a bit more information about what you want to be done to your home in Winnipeg, your contractor can provide you with an informed estimate on how long the job will take.
