Why are you remodeling? Do you want to improve the function of your kitchen? Update the style? Or are you planning to sell soon? The answer to this question will help you determine the scope of your project and your budget.
How long do you plan to live in your home? If you think you’ll be house shopping within 5 years, try to focus on a renovation that will give you the highest return on investment. If you plan to stay in your home for a decade or longer, consider making long-term functional improvements that will fit your style and your budget.
Do you have or plan to have children? If the answer is yes, it’s a good idea to consider choosing durable, easy-to-clean materials for your renovation.
Are you planning to live in the home during the project? If you’re planning a major renovation, consider arranging accommodation off-site so you won’t be inconvenienced.
