Change is an inevitable part of any renovation, but with some up-front work it is possible to stay within your budget limits. Give yourself the best shot at sticking to your plan by following these budgeting tips from our design team:
Find a renovation pro with a proven track record and established process who is willing to provide a fixed quote.
Work with an experienced design professional to help you create a realistic, detailed budget breakdown. The more detailed you are the more likely you’ll be to establish an accurate budget that will set your expectations accordingly. If the quotes you’re getting are vague and seem too good to be true, they probably are.
You’ll probably have exciting new ideas as you see your renovation project unfold. Sometimes it’s appropriate to make additions or upgrades, but you’ll have a better shot at staying within your limits if you identify up-front which items are need-to-have vs. want-to-have. Just remember that every little change adds up and will impact your project requirements for materials, labor and schedule.
