Follow these tips to help keep your remodeling projects on track!
Taking on a remodeling project can be daunting. From living in a construction zone to making sure you stick to your budget, there are many factors to worry about. To help your project run as smoothly as possible, begin with these tips:
1. Work with a qualified designer, architect and builder.
Unless you have a design background and construction expertise, bringing your vision to life can be harder than you think. A designer can help you figure out the right materials, doors, windows, and cabinets that will work best in your space. An architect will meld the design of the project with the building systems. A trusted professional builder will make sure your construction is done correctly and efficiently.
2. Establish your objectives.
Whether you want to open up your home, add more square footage, or upgrade your home’s assets, start by recognizing your goals. If you run into any problems during the project, referring back to your original objectives will help you figure out what route to take to solve the issue.
3. Set a budget, then add 10 percent.
It is not uncommon for remodeling projects to go over budget, especially due to unforeseen requirements or if you need to make design or material changes. Planning ahead and having some cushion will help you stick to your budget.
4. Know how your property will be protected.
Since your personal property will still be in your home, you want to make sure it and non-construction areas will be protected. Talk with your contractor to see what steps will be taken to safeguard your possessions and the parts of your house that are not having work done.
One of the most important parts of taking on a remodel project is choosing quality materials that will match your vision and last for years to come.

Incorporating these design ideas in your home can help update its look.
As 2016 kicks off, it is the perfect time to start thinking about how you can update your home and enjoy the benefits of these renovations by this spring! To help you get started, consider these 2016 home design remodel ideas:
Extend your indoor outdoor living area by adding Bi-Fold patio doors, lift and slide patio doors, or multi-slide patio doors that will open up your home to enjoy the outside and increase your living space.
Create a master bedroom retreat so that you can fully relax and refresh. French patio doors or Bi-Fold patio doors can allow you to wake up and enjoy the outdoors while adding a touch of elegance to your bedroom.
Foster family time with a family room that brings everyone together. Choosing the right patio doors will help increase your space beyond the inside of your house. Extending your family space to the great outdoors will give you the room for activities so everyone can fully enjoy themselves and make gatherings fun.
Update your curb appeal. Adding a new custom entry door can create a focal point to welcome guests to your home. Installing a beautiful light fixture will help to highlight your entry door. Choose native, drought-friendly plants and add solar lights to illuminate the path to your house for an inviting, low-maintenance change.
