Planning Your Remodeling Wish List

You’re at the point where you know you want to remodel. You’re tired of the dated look and you need your home to be brought into this century. Now what? Once you know you want to start a remodeling project, there’s a few things you can do to make the entire process easier.


Know Your Style

Know what you want. If you haven’t yet, create a pinterest or houzz account. Save every idea you come across that catches your eye. Start looking for patterns on what it is that you liked. Is it a bright and white kitchen? The farmers look? A rustic feel? Maybe eclectic? Whatever it is, take note of what draws you in. Go back and delete things you no longer like while taking a second look.



Don’t forget to include amenities and features you want to add too! Hate running to the sink every 5 seconds while you’re cooking? Put a pot filler on your wish list. Want a wide open bar area to casually gather friends while you entertain? Add that to the list! Hate cold floors? Don’t forget to ask for heated flooring!
