Home renovation is a puzzle, it looks easy to do but it is complicated.
If you are planning to do the complete end to end home renovation, then decide time to start the renovation and prepare a budget for it.
Time is very important because you will have to vacate the home for the renovation, temporarily you will have to find a rented house near by area where you can easily shift with your belongings and come to your site whenever required.
Finding the rented house near by or next to your site is very important, because during the renovation,
Contractor call you for material selection,
To see the work quality,
Waits for your approval on particular things you need,
If the contractor has any doubt,
Any society related issues etc.
So, if you are nearby then it is more convenient for you to visit and make decisions. But if you are far away from your site then you can not visit regularly and track the progress of your site, and if contractors need your help, you won’t be able to reach on time and indirectly work gets delayed.
It is recommended to stay nearby to your site during renovation.
Second is Budget
Don’t just assume the budget roughly and do not start renovation work. At Least take quotations from two contractors and then arrange funds for it. If it is out of your budget then you can skip some work items, if possible, or you can opt for EMI or loan.
Remember, arrange funds 10% extra of the total budget quoted. Because during the renovation, we realize change in work or add up extra work required. So to not let the work get delayed due to funds, pre plan for it because you may be living in a rented house and may have to stay one more month.
Keeping in mind all the scenarios, the budget requires planning.
