What to Do When You Don’t Know How to Start Your Home Renovation

So, you’re ready to embark on a home renovation project but feel overwhelmed and need help figuring out where to start. Don’t worry—you’re not alone! Home renovations can be exciting yet daunting, especially if you’re unsure of the first steps. 

But fear not—we’ve got you covered with some helpful tips to get you started on the right track. And if you ever find yourself stuck along the way, remember that the experts at Glickman Design Build are here to help you navigate the process and turn your renovation dreams into reality.

Start Your Home Renovation project

Assess Your Needs and Priorities

The first step in any home renovation project is to assess your needs and priorities. Take some time to evaluate your space and identify areas that require attention. Are you looking to update your kitchen for better functionality? Do you need additional space for a growing family? Are you considering adding an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) for rental income or multi-generational living? Once you’ve pinpointed your goals and priorities, you’ll have a clearer vision of what you want to achieve with your renovation.

Glickman has a renovation team who can help you get started with the best foot forward. 

Set a Realistic Budget

Before diving headfirst into your renovation project, it’s essential to establish a realistic budget. Determine how much you will spend on your renovation and allocate funds accordingly. Be sure to account for unexpected expenses and factor in a contingency fund for any unforeseen challenges that may arise along the way. Setting a budget upfront will help you make informed decisions and prevent overspending as your project progresses.

Glickman has strengthened and refined this aspect of home remodeling over the 40-plus years we have been operating. It is a vital part of the process that is beneficial to have a professional on hand. 

Gather Inspiration and Ideas

Once you clearly understand your needs and budget, it’s time to gather inspiration and ideas for your renovation. Browse home improvement magazines, websites, and social media platforms like Pinterest and Instagram for design inspiration and creative ideas. Note styles, colors, and features that resonate with you and incorporate them into your renovation plans. Creating a vision board or digital mood board can help you visualize your desired aesthetic and guide you throughout the renovation process.

Consider DIY vs. Professional Help

While DIY projects can be rewarding and cost-effective, particular home renovations may require the expertise of a professional. Assess your skills, time constraints, and project complexity to determine whether DIY or professional help is the best option for you. Remember that professional contractors like Glickman Design Build bring years of experience, industry knowledge, and resources to ensure your renovation is completed to the highest standards and meets local building codes and regulations. All without you having to do any of the work!
