You love your home. You have created countless memories, enjoyed time with friends and family, and it has been your safe space in times of chaos. But, after spending a lot of time at home during the pandemic, you might have noticed a few changes to your home that could make it even more perfect than it already is. Rather than selling your home, you may decide it’s time to renovate. If you’ve been through a home renovation before, you know that it can be a messy (and sometimes frustrating) experience. To keep the journey smooth, we’ve compiled a few tips to help you.
Remove as many personal items as possible from the space being renovated.
Removing personal items such as photographs on walls, decorations, or even just personal belongings away from the space to be renovated may help to prevent accidental damage or from being covered in dust from the renovation.
Try to plan ahead as much as possible.
You can’t plan for everything, but you may be able to do some planning to help you stay organized and to make life a little bit easier on you during the renovation. For example, if you are going through a kitchen renovation, you might decide to cook and freeze meals that can be microwaved or heated easily. Or you might stock-up on some slow cooker recipes that you can use when kitchen access isn’t ideal.
Cover Furniture, Roll Up Area Rugs to Keep Dust Off.
Renovations can be quite dusty. Using plastic drop cloths or even fitted bed sheets to cover furniture near the renovation can be helpful. Additionally, rolling up area rugs (if possible) can help prevent stains from foot traffic and dust from the construction.
Any small steps that you can take that will help make your life easier during your home upgrade will help to keep you organized and worry-free during the project. To get started on your home renovation, contact us!
