Two Questions to Ask Yourself before a Home Improvement

Two Questions to Ask Yourself before a Home Improvement

Improving your home seems to be made effortless by the

television shows that highlight improving the entire home in one week. We all

sit back and think well if they can do it one week, I should be able to do it

in a month or so. What we don't see is just how much planning and effort goes

into these home improvement projects. However, before you begin any project you need to ask

yourself two vital questions: What do you want? How much you can you afford?

The first question seems relatively easy to answer,

however, it really isn't. Are you looking to just make your house reflect more

of your taste? Or are you looking to move and what your home to bring more

money when you sell it? These are entirely two different types of home

improvements. For example, if you just want to reflect your tastes, then feel

free to paint the walls a wild color that will scream individuality, or make

the bathroom your own personal escape area.

However, if you want to sell the house faster and for

more money then you will need to lay off those personal touches and go with

something that is easy for others to work with. For example, beige walls and

bathrooms that are elegant yet simple. No one wants to buy a house that is decorated

and catered to one person, unless they have the same exact same taste, and that

is hard to come by.

Once you have made the distinction between what it is

that you want. You can then prepare a list that will fall into one of three

categories. First, things that you must have to improve the home. These are

going to be things like a new bath tub if your old one is leaking water onto

the floor. Second, things you would like to have. For example, most people

would like to have the garden bath tub, but settle for the regular bath tub.

The last area is dreams that may come true, for example, if you have always

dreamed of having a kitchen that professional chefs would die for, then this

idea falls into this area.

Once you know what you would like to do. Then, it is

time to make a budget. How much can you afford? Are you willing to take out a

loan to do these home improvements? Once you know the amount then you must pick

and choose the projects from your list, beginning with the area of things that

need to be done.
