Whether it’s your first time working on a home remodeling project or your tenth, having a process helps manage your expectations and lays out the next steps for every phase. Without a plan and process, it’s easy for scopes of work, timeline, and budgets to quickly go awry. Working with the team at All Renovation and Design ensures your home remodeling process will go smoothly to plan, but whatever your home remodeling plan, we have 4 steps for you to follow to keep things on track.
1. Vet professionals and find a partner you can trust
All Renovation and Design is a wonderful partner to choose for those in the Lancaster, PA area. But if you’re not local, you can still find a partner you can trust to work with. Step one in any remodeling project is to wisely choose the team that will assist you. Vet local professionals and consider the following:
- What is their availability and timeline?
- How much do their services cost?
- Do they understand my vision and goals?
- Does their previous work and reviews speak to the type of work I want done in my home?
2. Schedule your in-home walk through and consultation to translate your ideas and wants
Once you find a partner to work with, communicating what you want done and your goals with the project is important. For professionals like All Renovation and Design, we will schedule an in-home walk through of your space to see what we have to work with and to ensure everything you want done is doable. We encourage you to work with your remodeling partner in your home before approving designs to make sure everything is on track and doable.
3. Get to designing and watch the new remodel begin
Now comes the fun part: the design! Some businesses offer renderings and 3D models of your new space to help you envision the final product. Others will create mood boards or inspiration pieces that pull in the design elements you’re wanting to use. Depending on your vision, your design team can be very involved in the design or more supportive to your ideas.
You will get the chance to approve your design, regardless of who you work with. Once approved, they should also give you an estimated timeline for how long the work will take and what to expect in the following weeks. Keep in mind that timelines do change due to unexpected discoveries along the way, but the timeline is meant to give you an idea of the workload.
4. Watch your space transform!
As the weeks progress, you’ll see your space take on a whole new look! We love the transformation process, showcasing all of the elements that have come into play up to this point: picking products, designing the layout, and more.
We also encourage you to take before and after photos or progress pictures throughout the process. This is a great way to capture the entire project and really appreciate how far along things have come.
