Maybe you’ve grown tired of your 1970s avocado-green kitchen to update it to something more modern, or perhaps it’s as simple as remodeling a bathroom. Whatever the room, home renovations can test even the most patient personality through the sheer chaos and mess that are inevitable.
To get through your renovation, organizing the clutter is key.
• Have files for everything. Paperwork should be kept in one place and create a file of all receipts. Permits & papers from the city or homeowner’s association should be kept together in another folder in order to easily put your fingers on them.
• Cover it up. One word: plastic. Use it to cover all heavy furniture that must stay in the room. This will prevent dust and debris from getting into the nooks and crannies.
• Keep a list. Supplies are going to run low, things are going to fall through the cracks if you don’t write them down. Hanging a clipboard on a nail in the area where you are working will help you to stay on point about people you need to call, or things you need to do or buy for the next day.
• If you’re doing the remodel yourself, there is going to be a certain amount of upheaval. One thing that will help reduce your stress level is keeping your tools in one place. Create a space such as a table, where all small tools are kept.
Whether you are updating or thinking of selling ( with me of course)
I can recommend great contractors.
