We frequently hear the question “should I renovate my home all at once or in pieces?” There are many variables that go into this answer, including the complexity of the renovation, your available budget and whether you plan to live in the home during the renovation.
A home renovation is a great way to improve your quality of life and make better use of your space, but it does require a lot of time and effort and can lead to some inconvenience, at times. So where should you start and how much should you take on at once? Our suggestion is to start with the full renovation design. Pull design inspiration to provide to your design professional so they can execute your complete vision.
Once the design meets your needs, the designer can finalize the design specs and create a budget estimate for execution of the plan. We’ll work together to prioritize and compare against your available budget.
With a cost outlined for everything, you’ll be able to see if you can afford to renovate your whole home at once. Full-home renovations typically cost less in the long run because they are more efficient, but budget is the most important factor in this decision.
Another factor to consider is whether you can move out during the home renovation. Living with a renovation can be loud, messy, and stressful. If you are working on a full-home renovation, we recommend living elsewhere during the construction.
