How to Efficiently Plan Your Home Renovation

August 5, 2022

The idea of home renovation can be exciting as it is a way to transform your home and improve your life. It can also be daunting, though, as it is such a massive project and can be disruptive. This post will offer a step-by-step guide to help you to get started with your home renovation project and know what to expect.

Planning & Design

The planning and design stage is key and should never be rushed. Often, this stage takes as long or even longer than the actual building work. You will need to work out what your budget is and how you will access the money, establish what you need from the renovation and speak to experts Owl Mountain Renovators to get designs drawn up. You may also need to factor in structural systems, finishing materials, planning permission etc.

Tackle Large Projects First

When it comes to renovating a house, you will often find that there are both big and small projects that need to be completed. It is the larger projects that should be completed first as subsequent projects may be affected by them. This could include replacing roof tiles, dealing with your water filtration system and strengthening the foundation of the home.


You also need to have an idea of a timeline so that you know how long the project will last. If you are hiring contractors to complete the work, you should sit down with them and discuss what your needs are so that a reasonable timeline that works for everyone can be agreed upon. Keep in mind that you will need to factor in cleaning time, demolition time, delivery of materials and any holidays. You will also need to have some flexibility as projects very rarely go exactly according to plan!


It is then a case of getting prepared for the work to start. You might have to move items around in the home or possibly look into storage as a way to free up space. Additionally, communicate with your builders so that you know if there are times where you need to be out of the home - you may need to arrange temporary accommodation for a while whether this is staying with a friend, an Air BnB or checking into a hotel. Generally, it is not the best idea to go on holiday while work is being done on your home so you should try to stay locally.

These are the key steps to take when planning a renovation project. Renovating your home can improve both your life and home in many ways, but it is also a major undertaking and can be stressful. Focus on these stages and you should reduce stress and develop an extensive plan that will hopefully help the project to be a complete success.
