Home Renovations require hours or planning, budgeting, patience, designing and communication. Here are the Do’s and Don’ts you need to consider when completing your next home renovation!

 

Do:

Invest in quality appliances. You will be using your appliances on a regular basis, so purchase wisely. Do your research and find appliances to fit your lifestyle and look of your kitchen. Make a smart decision once for your fridge, stove or washing machine and never think about it again!

Don’t:

Do it Yourself. Home renos aren’t a weekend DIY project. They should be taken seriously and with your best interests in mind. When it comes to home renovations, leave it to a team of professionals. They will happily guide you through the process and address any concerns along the way. When working with professionals, the desire to save money is outweighed by potential complications, damages, and financial loss that can result from DIY renovations.

Do:

Plan for a profitable return! Do this by spending wisely in areas of your home that will lead to increased resale value. This includes new windows, roof, hardwood flooring, updated heating & cooling systems, and finishing touches to kitchens and bathrooms. These are all things buyers look for and will prompt you for quick sell!

Don’t:

Use multiple different finishes. This creates confusion and is stylistically unappealing. Especially when renovating your kitchen and bathroom, as these are the spaces most used by guests, limit your finishing choices to one or two colours. Chrome and gold are timeless looks and will persuade prospective buyers to close.
