If You Fail to Plan When It Comes to Remodeling, Then Plan to Fail

Once you know why you’re remodeling, and you’ve taken time to choose your design-remodel team, the next big step isn’t going to be about tearing out carpet or pulling down the drywall. Yes, you will be excited and feel as though you’re ready to get the ball rolling. But slow down. Take some time to go through the planning phase; you’ll be glad you did.

At Nip Tuck Remodeling, we believe that the planning phase is the most important part of any design-remodel project. We appreciate that we have time to work with you, get to know you and your family, and get to understand how you use your home. We encourage our clients not to rush this process. You may have waited a long time to get to this point but taking a little extra time to get it right will reward you with a huge payoff for many years to come. We will be renovating some of the most personal spaces in your home and it is a significant investment of time, resources, and emotions. So, make certain that your remodel plan is completely right for you.

Instant gratification in remodeling rarely has the desired result, but during the planning phase, you can accomplish a lot, including:

  • Choosing materials
  • Scheduling time to obtain special-order materials so that you don’t have to settle for something less than perfect
  • Establishing your budget
  • Recognizing structural limitations to your home
  • Ensuring that the design and aesthetics make you happy

 

During the planning phase of your remodel, we get to know a lot about how you use the space. For example, some people see the master bedroom as an escape from the world, but it doesn’t yet feel like the oasis they need it to be. Others need part of the bedroom to function as a quiet place to hold office hours. Some people only use their formal dining room for occasional entertaining. For others, the dining room is the hub of the home, where homework, family meetings, and game nights take place. It’s important for us to understand how you inhabit your home so that we can give you the functionality you need to make it work better for you – and that’s why planning is so important.

Nothing successful happens by accident, and while it may be a phase through which many well-intentioned professionals move too quickly in an effort to get a project underway, planning is the crucial difference between a project that brings you joy versus one that brings nothing but surprises, upset, and cost overruns.

For Nip Tuck Remodeling, planning the design and planning phase must:

  • Deliver a floor plan you love
  • Provide for the aesthetics that will bring it to life
  • Be customized 100 percent to your desires
  • Be attached to a budget that you feel delivers great value

We can’t wait to help you dream big. If you’re ready to take the next step in your home remodeling journey, let’s plan together.
