The home improvement projects most in demand by my clients are:
- Kitchen renovations
- Bathroom renovations
- Basement renovations
I suppose it must be because they are such central spaces to family life,
and are high traffic as well.
Kitchen, bathroom and basement renovations are a smart investment
Real estate agents agree that a seller should concentrate on these three rooms to sell their homes. So even if you intend on living there for many more years, you know that the eventual market value will be considerably higher than it is now!
The 3 phases structuring a home renovation project
Phase 1: Dream
Phase 2: Recruit and plan
Get help from an Interior designer
Interior designers are specialists in planning great interiors. They also provide technical plans, and supervise renovations but they have the added bonus of being creators of environments, personalizing spaces from a functional and practical point of view .
With the help of your designer, establish your priorities as well as short, medium and long term goals with a logical sequence to avoid back-tracking and undoing previously done work. This professional can also help you when comparing various price quotes and ensure the entrepreneur is conforming his work to the plans!
Choosing the right trades-people
The right timing
During the hottest summer weeks they take their vacations, however, it is often too quiet in this sector of activity in the colder winter months after the holidays. From January through March these trades are often looking for work, so it’s a good time to book them and perhaps negotiate a better price. They want to work, they are passionate and they are excellent!
