A new living space is on its way!

How to prepare for a remodel

Remodeling is an adventure full of challenges. Between the excitement of starting a project and the exultation of completing a project there lies challenge and dust—lots of dust. The tips below are designed to help you get through a project with a minimum of angst. The best thing to do is remain flexible and maintain your sense of humor. After all, with a Waypoint designer, you will get exactly what you had in mind.

Your remodel is an investment

One of the first and most important things you can do before you remodel is to be sure of what you want to accomplish and what you are willing to spend to achieve your goals.

If you’re remodeling to increase the value of your home, be sure to look at the price/value relationship. For example, homeowners in the market for reselling their home recoup on average 81% of every dollar spent on a remodeled kitchen. That’s an excellent return on your investment.

Before you even start calculating your return, you need to take a realistic look at your budget. Before you start to plan, discuss what you are willing to spend with your designer. An authorized Waypoint designer can work with you to make the most of your budget and create a living space that you can be proud of.

Ironically, not hiring a designer to save money often ends up costing homeowners more in the end. An expert will help make sure all is done correctly the first time to avoid costly mistakes.

Nothing comes easily

Remodeling is disruptive under the best of circumstances, to ease the process it really helps to be well prepared. That’s why the first step is communication—not tarps and runners.

Get the family ready

Before anything else, discuss the process with your family so they understand the process and approximate duration of the remodel.

Advise the neighbors

Making neighbors aware of your remodel and getting their support goes a long way.

Communicate with contractors

When it comes to managing contractors, you can count on your authorized Waypoint dealer to guide you. They’ll help you set a schedule, determine hours of work and assist with many project-related details that will maintain your sanity in your home throughout the remodel.

Get exactly what you had in mind

In the end, with a Waypoint designer, you’ll get exactly what you had in mind!
