The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), “The Voice of the Remodeling Industry”, offers these steps to keep in mind when you plan a remodeling project.
The first step to take is pre-planning, which can be started by making two lists about the room that you want to remodel: things that you like and things you dislike. Then write out:
- Features you wish you could have
- Features that you want
- Features that you need for the new room
- Possible color swatches
- Who will be using the room
- What the room will be used for when the project is complete
NARI suggests that if you want to start a project by July, then start your process in January. “Finding the right design, choosing a professional remodeler and securing the necessary financing for a home improvement project can sometimes take months,” says Julius Lowenberg, a past President of NARI. Also, your remodeler may not be able to begin work immediately if they are currently working on another project. Most quality remodelers book out months ahead and often up to a year.
