Another important tip is to make sure you budget for all the costs associated with your renovation. This includes the price of materials, labor, demolition, and dumpstering. By accounting for all these costs upfront, you can avoid any nasty surprises later on.
Create a timeline
One way to stay sane during a renovation is to create a schedule and try to stick to it. This will help you stay organized and on track, and will also help your contractor stay on schedule. Of course, there will always be some flexibility needed, but having a timeline will help reduce the overall stress of the project.
