How to Make Your House Remodel Go Smoother

 ***This is a featured post***

House remodels are truly a chaotic time for you and your family; some rooms might be off-limits, and you might be wondering if you are doing the right thing. You might also need to work on dates around other people’s schedules, which is annoying if you constantly stop-starting. So, you should be finding ways to help the whole process go a lot more smoothly for you and everyone involved. 

#1 Moving Your Things

This can be one of the bigger stresses of renovating your house. You might have nowhere to put the piles and piles of stuff you have accumulated over the years, or even the means to get it off-site safely. 

You might find that it is beneficial to look for man + van services in your area. You might find that a man with a van service is great for moving little pieces backwards and forwards securely, so none of your stuff gets broken and you don't have to borrow your friend's trailer or your mom’s bigger car. 

You might find that this sort of thing takes a lot of stress away from your general day-to-day, especially if you are in a position where you are waiting for weeks to be able to get your next load of materials or your friend who is supposed to be helping with the heavy lifting keeps on canceling last minute. 

#2 The Order of the Renovation

The order in which you renovate your property is very important to how your renovation goes and how much money you are spending overall. Here is a list of the order you should renovate in:

Upstairs bathrooms

Downstairs bathrooms 

The kitchen

Living areas 

This is simply due to the positioning of pipes. You don't want to spend a lot on your living room only to have to tear up the ceiling above it because you have a bathroom directly above with a leak. 

#3 Getting the Right Materials

This is an important part of making sure that your renovation goes smoothly. Using the right high-quality materials for the job means that you are working with the best that is available, and consequently that the result will not only be high quality but also long-lasting. This is desirable as you want it to be a long time before you go through all this disruption again.

#4 Investing in Professional Help

You are going to need professional help for some things, such as the plumbing, the electronics, and maybe some other installations that you know you wouldn’t be able to do on your own. You should make sure that these things are done by a professional to lower the risk of a hazard such as a fire, leak, or getting shocks from your efforts with the electrics. This is also important when you come to sell the property, as you can hand over the right certification to show it has all been done correctly and safely, as well as to a high standard.
