You're happy. You've just chosen to renovate your home. Before you can even decide which room to accomplish first, you pull out your Pinterest boards and start seeking for the latest trends and designs.

Before choosing your dream plan, make sure you're realistic. A simple kitchen renovation can cost an estimate of $22,000, and a basic bathroom renovation can cost $10,000. Make sure you start by setting a budget to know what you can and cannot afford.

Now that you have your budget, here are the next mistakes to avoid.

Racing to Finish

Make sure you are giving yourself enough time to complete the renovation. Trying to rush things will only cause accidents to happen. Adding 2-3 weeks extra to your estimated time provides a nice cushion for any mistakes made. Take time to plan your project, get what you need and build a team for optimal success.


Ensuring everyone is heard is the key to a satisfying renovation. Leave your team happier than ever by hearing out all ideas. One of the biggest mistakes during a renovation is ignoring opinions and other general miscommunications.

Knowing What's Best

Starting a renovation project gives you a blank canvas on your home. While it can be fun, it is easy to go overboard with ideas. Every home is different and knowing what's best for yours is crucial. There is a difference between deciding on an item you like and one that makes more sense. Think about how your room flows and what you do in that area. Renovating is about making things easier to fit with your lifestyle.

Changing Your Plan

Some things happen that make it impossible to stick to the plan. More times than not, this is due to poor budgeting. Make sure you come up with a layout that includes possible problems that could arise. By calculating ahead of time, it will be easier to stay on track.

Hiring a contractor is one of the easiest ways to avoid these problems. Sit down with a contractor today to discuss your plan and turn your designs into a reality.
