We all know how stressful it can get when there is a home renovation. It can literally make people lose their mind. You, too, may have faced a similar situation where you had to deal with mess during a home renovation project in the past. But what if we told you that it is possible to live in your home when it is getting renovated and also stay sane while doing so? Sounds like a dream, but with a few tips and tricks, you can make sure you don’t lose it in the process! Read on to discover your gateway to staying sane during a home building.
Having sufficient funds can at once eliminate all your worries. The best way to go about it is by having a set budget for the home renovation project. Consult with your custom home builder and figure out the total expense. Accordingly arrange for funds and also keep a buffer amount for any unforeseen expenses in the due course of the renovation project.
Yes, this one is really important. It is one of the most crucial aspects of preserving your home during renovation. Post the renovation work, you don’t want to welcome your HVAC contractor with heaps of dust from the vents. To avoid this, it is best that you seal all the vents in your home.
Do yourself a favor and choose being systematic – label every single thing in your house. Label boxes, containers and wrapped furniture. This will help you later when you have to sort things in your newly renovated home. Label what needs to be kept, thrown out, sold or donated. You could also mention if the item concerned is fragile or not.
For those of you who will be staying in your home while it is being renovated, it is important to find some space where you will be away from all the renovation madness. In the same place, you could create a makeshift kitchen for your coffee, tea, snacks and an induction cooktop for quick stir fries.
Everytime you sense the frustration getting to you, try to mentally move away from that feeling. Instead try picturing yourself standing in your newly renovated home, feel how perfect that moment is and understand that all the stress you are going through is going to have a good outcome in the end. Also, it won’t be wrong to recollect the famous John Lenon quote, “Everything is okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”
