Sharing is caring!

If you decide that your home has seen better days and you want to renovate the entire property, you’re probably wondering where you should start. A full home renovation is a daunting task to take on and it’s going to take a long time and cause a lot of disruption. But if you renovate the rooms in the right order, you can make the whole process a lot easier and make sure that your home is semi-functional throughout the project. If you are about to embark on a full home renovation, here’s how to decide which rooms to start with.

Think About Which Rooms Get The Most Use 

The easiest way to decide where to start is to think about which rooms you use the most. These rooms should be renovated first and rooms that don’t get used as often can wait until the end of the project. For example, if you cook meals for the family every night and the kitchen is the hub of the home, you should start the renovation with premium kitchen remodeling before you do anything else. But if you never cook and you usually eat out or order in, you don’t need to worry about doing the kitchen first and you should start with the bedrooms or living area. If you get the most important rooms out of the way, you will have a functional space in the home and you can carry on as normal while the rest of the renovations are finished. 

Consider The Renovations That Add Value 

Renovating your home is expensive, but you can consider it an investment because the renovations will add value to your home. Even if you budget well for the renovation, there is always the chance that things will go wrong along the way and the costs will increase. You may find yourself in a position where you cannot afford to finish the entire renovation in one go and you need to save a bit more money. That’s why it’s best to start with the home improvements that add value and leave the rest until the end. 

Fix Maintenance Issues First 

Even though you might be excited about getting a brand new kitchen or decorating your bedroom, it’s important that you fix maintenance issues first. For example, if there is a big leak in the bathroom and it’s causing water damage in the home, you should tackle that first before moving on to any cosmetic changes. 

Make Small Upgrades In Between Large Renovations 

In the rooms that are being renovated last, you should try to make small upgrades to freshen the space up. For example, if you are planning to renovate the rest of the house before you do the living room, you can still upgrade the furniture or buy a new TV. You’re going to make these upgrades eventually and doing it while you are still working on the rest of the house is a good way to keep things fresh until you have time to fully renovate those rooms. 

When you are renovating your entire home, you need to think about these things and make sure that you renovate all of the rooms in the right order.
