A home with character is an excellent thing. But sometimes, when you purchase a home that has a lot of history, it comes with a fair amount of wear and tear over the years as well as some structural themes that might not be aligned with your aesthetic. Luckily, planning a home renovation is a fun and accessible way to upgrade your living space to match your style and improve your house’s health and safety! We’d like to talk about a few common questions to consider when you’re beginning to plan to remodel your home.
First and Foremost
Who should you hire? It’s important to find a renovator that has a wide array of expertise and can provide you with the kind of work you’re looking for. To narrow that down, it’s helpful to first do a lot of research and planning about the kinds of updates you’d like to make to your home. Once you know what you’re looking to change, it’s easier to find the right fit. And just a note, at Brock Builders, we’re so much more than just an Asheville custom home builder! While we love building from the ground up, we’re just as equally enamored by the process of renewing an existing structure and bringing our client’s renovation dreams to reality!
It’s easy to get lost on Architectural Digest, listing off all the many updates you’ll make with your home but when it comes down to it, it’s wise to make choices that fit comfortably into your budget. After you create a realistic budget for your home renovation, prioritize your updates from most important to least and then talk with your remodel team to determine how many you can achieve.
When do you buy that new couch you’d like to put in your updated living room? How soon should you make decisions about room colors and new appliances? The sooner the better! The more information you have before beginning your renovation project, the easier it is for everything to come together cohesively. Knowing what furniture, style elements, and themes you want for each part of the home in advance helps your team of builders give better recommendations for your upgrades.
Taking Your Environment into Consideration
Do you live in a place with high humidity? Do you experience heavy rainfalls? What kind of terrain supports your home’s infrastructure? All of these factors should be at play when you make decisions about your home renovations. Choosing a team of knowledgeable home builders and renovators is key to making sure the updates you put into place are sustainable. Making sure that your home’s long-term health and safety is prioritized is invaluable as you make design choices, so be sure to include that in your questions as you interview potential teams to hire.
