5 Common Home Remodeling Mistakes to Avoid


You've partnered with your contractor, and you're ready to begin your next home remodeling project. Whether it's a kitchen or bathroom remodel, there are a few common mistakes you should avoid.

1. Vague Vision

Make sure to research online, look at pictures, and consider all aspects of your project before discussing your ideas in-depth with your contractor. When you provide them with a clear vision, they can give you the best possible design.

2. Complex Changes

Mid-construction adjustments can waste time and money. Your contractor can work with you to adjust according to your vision, but try to refrain from things like changing your mind after the drywall is installed or deciding against a particular material when the project is near completion.

3. Being Too Quiet

If you never speak up, you'll never be heard. Get the answers you need by asking your contractor questions and informing them of your concerns. Their job is to cater to your specific needs and provide you with a space you love; take advantage of their expertise.

4. Less-Than-Timeless Designs

You may be remodeling to modernize your style, but make sure to select more subtle designs that will stand the test of time. Although trendy designs may be considered stylish now, they are often short-lived and can also impact your home's selling potential.

5. Overlooking the Lights

Lighting is often a forgotten feature that can significantly influence the look and feel of any room.Assess both your current and future lighting requirements to ensure that you will be illuminating the proper areas of your bathroom or kitchen remodel.
