Planning a big home renovation can be both exciting and daunting. In addition to organizing the contractors, supplies, and permits that will be needed, start thinking about how to keep life as normal as possible. Although a renovation generally creates upheaval for a time, the end result will be worth it. Here are some tips for staying comfortable during a home renovation.
Organize the Living Space
During construction, the living areas of your home may be temporarily constricted or reduced. Remove unneeded furniture and belongings to open up those areas for comfort and convenience. You may want to pack up some things you won’t need for a while, like holiday dishes and seasonal children’s toys. If you’ve been planning to get rid of unused furniture or anything that would be in the way of remodeling, do it before the project gets started. Keep access to and within the work area free of clutter.
