Got some spare time on your hands, or finally getting around to that project you’ve been thinking about for a while? It can be tempting to want to start demolition and dive right in, but developing a proper plan for your home project is key to success. Stay on track with your budget, timeline, and end up with a final product you love with these tips. Read more of our blog for more tips to help your project come to life. 

  1. Choose a design professional. You’ll want someone to help you create the plan for your project, whether you’re planning an exterior renovation or a new kitchen design. They can help get your vision from inside your head to concrete plans on paper. They’ll also help with budgeting and can purchase materials later on. 
  2. Create the plans. Your designer may bring you several options, or you could ask for revisions as well. This process could take weeks or a few months, depending on the project.
  3. Pick a contractor. If you don’t already have a favorite, your designer will often have a recommendation. Choose someone you find trustworthy, and ask about their qualifications and certifications. Contractors should have portfolios available for your review as well.

  4. Go shopping. Pick your materials! Others involved in the construction process can be as involved as you want them to be. Often, designers are happy to take this over, and might be better at sticking to a specific budget. If shopping for backsplashes is your passion, have at it. 
  5. Get your permits. This might be handled by your contractor, but be sure to know whose responsibility it is. Permits are an important part of the construction process that should be handled correctly to avoid headaches later on.
  6. Sign the contract! Discuss final options with your contractor, and let the experts get to work.
