How to Organize Your Home Remodeling Plans, Hamden, Connecticut

If you’re brainstorming a home remodel to revamp your house, it can be easy to get lost in all the planning. Tackling multiple rooms and systems requires careful organization so you create the most efficient workflow. While every space has unique needs, there are general rules of thumb you can follow to create a stress-free and seamless project. To guide you through this process, here are some tips for planning your timeline.

Your Guide to Planning a Home Remodel

Work From the Outside In

Exterior projects may generate a lot of debris and require space to work, so contractors should start there first. For example, replacing your roof before you remodel your bathroom or kitchen prevents leaks from damaging your new space. First have a service install windows, lay foundation for home additions, and add necessary support beams to build the groundwork for your aesthetic projects. Once you move to the interior work, you won’t have to worry about exterior projects causing a mess.

Start With In-Wall Work

Extensive bathroom remodels often require re-routed plumbing for new tubs and toilets, and kitchens may need wiring to extend to an island or to new sockets. If you’re building a home addition or finishing a basement, you’ll also need to extend ductwork, plumbing, and electrical wiring. Contractors will have an easier time handling all of this in bare spaces than with micro-level interior redesigning happening.

With all the bones of your home remodel in place, contractors can begin adding in the fixtures and features that define spaces. This can include granite countertops or walnut cabinetry for the kitchen. New living room flooring, lighting fixtures, or bathroom features can also be installed once inner-wall renovations are completed. This lets contractors focus on attention to detail, boosting the efficiency of the work and ensuring a high-quality finish.
