Read over our list of top home renovation mistakes to avoid before starting your home renovation project!

When renovating your home, there are numerous things that you should take into account. How can you make sure the project is done on time? What about the budget? At Rainbow Construction, we help homeowners complete wonderful home renovations every day. Here are some of the most common home renovation mistakes that homeowners make, so that you can avoid them!

Top Home Renovation Mistakes

  • Cabinets that are not measured properly in relation to everything else going in their kitchen. Many people purchase kitchen cabinets to be installed, proceed with the installation, and then realize once their new refrigerator shows up that things won’t quite fit as intended!
  • Selecting the least expensive contractor instead of the contractor that can provide competitive prices and great customer service. Many times, contractors that give low-ball estimates are desperate for business and cut corners during the remodeling process to make ends meet and stay under budget.
  • Underestimating on your budget. You should always save more than you plan on spending during your renovation, as 9 times out of 10, there is a surprise expense along the way that will need to be paid for.
  • Choose granite countertops over everything else. While granite is the right choice for some homeowners, there are so many other types of kitchen countertops to choose from. Make sure that you investigate all of your options and their pros and cons before you commit to granite.
  • Insisting on hardwood floors. Just like granite countertops, many homeowners insist on hardwood flooring because they assume that it is the best that money can buy. While hardwood flooring is a great investment in your home, it is not the be all end all! Take time to see what flooring might be the best fit for you before purchasing hundreds of square feet worth of exotic hardwoods.
