Remodeling homes

• Planning –not a question but this is always the first thing to be done before doing any activity. Make a list of all the things you want to get rid at your house and the things you want to keep and improvised. TIP: for you to know what you really want, visualize and see for yourself how you want you house to look after all the remodeling. Choose and decide if you want to go from traditional to contemporary setting. Browse through the internet or see magazines that manifest different home styles.
• After visualizing, make another list of the things you want to accentuate your home. (This is optional, you can always retain the stuffs and decorations you have). Also not to forget open the unopened boxes and cabinets at your home you might find their things that can still be of use.
• Next is to have a draft of the arrangement of the different rooms and areas of the house. Style and design -decide for these. The color of the curtains and arrangement of the furniture around and the things you want to move and remove (including wall’s photos).
• After all the planning and the long list you’ve made, purchase the materials you need. Be sure to bring the list with you so that you will miss nothing. Be wise and practical with the buying; choose items that are not too expensive but of good quality.
• After everything you need is ready, now make a choice to where to start. If you have a two-story house it’s always good to start from the upper part to the lower area of the house.
