Investing in a home improvement project can be a great way to add value to your property, so could this be one of your resolutions this year? If so, here are a few tips on how you can get started with your renovations...
Make a schedule
Before you begin your renovation, take a step back and create a plan you can stick to. This will ensure you don’t commit yourself to too many tasks, allowing you to remain stress-free and organised.
Allow for extra-spending
Everyone loves to save money where possible. However, a stringent budget may cause your goals to fall short. When renovating, include an extra allowance in your budget in case you need to over spend. Take the time to carefully save so you don't find yourself struggling unnecessarily and focus on the little tasks which won’t demand too much expense.
Have goals that are measurable
When starting a project, it is natural to want to see immediate results.Depending on just how much work is required, you might want to consider planning out key milestones that will signal when the next phase of development has been reached. That way, you won't lose heart from any potential setbacks or delays.
Ensure you can’t forget your resolutions
Plaster reminders of tasks you need to complete all over your home, meaning you can’t miss or avoid them. Whether it’s a big A3 poster or a post-it note on the computer, this will keep your goals fresh in your mind.
