Renovation will be a cleansing and beautifying experience for your self and space. Renovation will also be stressful, overwhelming and confusing. What will I fix, keep or exchange are the common questions when wanting to change up your home. For instance, when you have a beautiful glass window or table and it has some scratches on it, one will believe they would want to replace that window, but there are always solutions for damaged glass, wood, doors, ceilings, floors etc.... One window scratch remedy is http://ezinearticles.com/?Glass-Scratch-Remover&id=6551520. There are many remedies that you can find for almost any damaged part of your home on the internet. Before you start spending big dollars to replace everything that has a little scratch or dent see if it can be repaired to your satisfaction.
When you decide to actually get a new kitchen, bathroom, floor, windows, doors etc... finding the best quality for the best price is the next step. Relying on services such as Angie's list or Service Magic, and or great references from family or friends would be the way to go. Set aside two Saturdays or a weekend to interview contractors, in depth. In depth means face to face interview asking at least 20-30 questions which you have thought of beforehand, calling their current and past references, searching on-line for any complaints against their license, making sure they have a license and a good score with the better business bureau, and visiting some of their clients homes that they completed. You want to take as much time finding someone to work on your home, as you do when someone were to do surgery on a loved one.
Renovation also does not have to involve a great deal of cost or effort, it would be just as great replacing the doors to your kitchen cabinets, new flooring, paint and some posh. Call Marla for a free 30 minute phone consultation for changing the stain of your kitchen, bathroom cabinets or wood furniture within a few days. Adding some new furniture pieces and buying some new curtains, pillows and rugs will also be considered a renovation.
Talk to your CPA, CFA or accountant about a budget that will not put you in jeapordy financially. Also talk to your realtor or a realtor in the area who knows if values are going up or down, in your neighborhood, to help you decide how much money, realistically, should be put into your home.
Any way you go about a home remodeling or renovation get your self and your home organized first, then beautified and comfy, so you can enjoy your time there more and more! Remember the outer is a reflection of the inner you, and home is where the heart, mind, body and soul rest regularly.
