Prepping for a Home Renovation

Making improvements to your house can be a long and tenuous process.  The sheer thought of displacing ourselves in our own homes, having strangers walking in and out of our homes and just the overall stress of a remodel can be too much for some people.  When looking to hire interior renovation services for your home, there are some key points that you should look at and consider.

Scale of the Project

Before staring a project make sure that you have a complete understanding of its scale. When entering into a renovation project, homeowners will often bite off more than they can chew or underestimate the amount of work that is actually involved. To help cope with this it is recommended that you understand the scale and scope of the project.

Start Small

When getting into a renovation project you want to start small. A good rule of thumb is to start with one room and then move on to the next. In some cases where you have adjoining rooms or an open floor plan this might not be as feasible as you may think, however if you work it into the scale and scope of the project you can attack it as a single room project.

Main Features

Design your new look and feel of the home can present you with a lot of different options. Before getting too deep into the design project, focus on one single feature – your main feature. This feature can be a fireplace, stained glass window or even some brick work. The focal point doesn’t need to be overpowering or in the direct center of the room, however it should be your inspiration for the rest of the features.

Color Choices

Pick a primary color. For many this will be white or some sort of eggshell. Cream colors are also nice and can add a hint of warmth to the room. Once you have chosen your primary color look for no more than two accent colors. For example if your primary color is beige then you will want to pick a darker color for your secondary color and then perhaps an eggshell as an accent color.


Patterns are also great to play with in your room. Patterns can be found in fabrics or in designs in wall paper. Designing a room is all about balance with a little bit of pop. Creating a room that has one particular color or accent pop out and over take the design will draw the eye towards that point distracting from the overall feel of the room.

Once your room is designed you will want to fill it with stuff. Photos, statues, rugs, paintings, stained glass and more add a bit of lived in personalized touches. When adding these elements to the room, however, try to avoid getting cluttered. The items in the room should be the final touches and serve as functional art.

Put all of these elements together and you can easily have a remodeling project you can be proud of and one that will not stress you emotionally, physically or financially.
