For those that know me, you know I’ve been in the middle of a renovation for the last 4 years and we are about to finish the last room. Hooray!!!!
Many of our BGA customers are starting to do some remodeling and may not be sure where to start. Well, I’ve learned a lot of things and I’m going to start to share some of them with you. This will include helpful hints as well as places I’ve found where you can get some great deals. Some of it will seem like common sense but sometimes these things bear repeating.
Let’s get the big one out of the way: Budget
Set a budget you can live with and try to stick to it. You know what you can afford and what you feel comfortable spending. That is your number!
One general rule of thumb – your budget should be about 15 % of your home’s market value for your kitchen project and 5 to 10% on a master bathroom project. A realistic budget helps you put together a rational materials list that not only fits your needs, but also your budget. For those clients who have champagne tastes and beer budgets, find ways to economize on one material and splurge on others but keep the style/look of the project congruous.E-mail this post
