Here at Metro Building and Remodeling Group (MBRG) we understand how stressful renovations can be and our goal is to minimize stress and increase client happiness through communication and collaboration during the entire process. Keep reading for tips on how to minimize disruption during the renovation process and create a smooth journey.
Prioritize Self Care
An important consideration during the renovation process is to try and stick to your normal routine whenever it’s possible to maintain a sense of normalcy. Organization can help you feel calm and in control, so you can add structure back into your day by making a specific schedule and sticking to it as much as the renovation allows. But it’s also important to be purposeful about taking breaks or getting away from the house and project. This can be visiting friends, going for a walk, or anything else you enjoy.
Prepare Your Temporary Living Situation
Before your renovation begins you should have a living arrangement, whether that’s living at home or living elsewhere. If possible, being able to live elsewhere either by renting a place or staying with family or friends can make a big difference in the level of disruption you feel. Before the renovation begins make sure to remove or relocate any furniture, personal items, or appliances and protect anything that has to stay behind. But if you do choose to live at home, making sure that any relocated items are separate from your living situation can help separate the renovation from your home life.
Expect the Unexpected
As with many renovations, things don’t always go according to plan. While it is incredibly important to plan and set clear expectations on the timeline and other elements throughout the renovation process such as materials or budget, it is equally as important to understand that you may have to be flexible. Be prepared with backup plans and make sure to communicate clearly with your contractors to help solve any issues efficiently.
Work With A Team of Professionals
There is no reason to make your renovation process more stressful than it needs to be. Working with a team of professionals who are experienced in the process and can communicate issues and work through solutions with you is a game changer. Hiring a professional group can also help you save both time and money in the long run due to the established connections with vendors and subcontractors they have as well as the experience that allows for efficiency.
