How to Decide Where in Your Home to Renovate

How to Decide Where in Your Home to Renovate
  • Opening Intro -

    Renovating your home can be an exciting time for you and for the majority of people, this is a process that will need to be done one part at a time.


Deciding therefore on which part you should start with can be a tough decision, you will naturally want to do it all at once but financially speaking, this usually isn’t something that is viable.

I have just completed a 3 year long project to get renovation work done throughout the house and in all honesty I potentially made some errors in terms of which parts of the house I did first. In order to help you to avoid my mistakes, I thought I’d jot down a few ideas for you on how you should work out which areas you wish to renovate first.

Incidentally if you are in the Maryland area and want a great building company to use then head to, they completed all of my work and did so to a very high standard.

Plan the Whole Project First

Even if you are not planning on completing the whole project of renovating your house in one fell swoop, it will make a great deal of sense to have it all planned out before commencing work on area of your home. The reason for this is that often one room or one area of construction may depend on another and it will be important that you do things in sequence.

For example, if you are planning on the demolition of a load bearing wall then you will need to ensure that you do this at the same time as the upstairs region that the wall supports.

Which Will Have The Biggest Impact

Thinking about which rooms require more work is important, there are some rooms in the house that we use far more than others, the kitchen and living room for example. In terms of what to do first, you should be considering which renovation will make the largest impact in your home. If the choice is between a spare bedroom and the living room then the living room would be the best bet to get started.

Cost Effectiveness

The final factor for you to consider is cost effectiveness, it may be that you can renovate a large portion of your home for the same cost as one large job elsewhere in the house. In order to feel good about where you live and be inspired by the changes that you are making, it will be more cost-effective to pick up the smaller jobs first. This will make a huge difference to your home and will inspire you to keep going with your home renovation.

The key to home renovation is in the planning process, don’t take this lightly, ensure that you have conspired all angles and have your mind focussed on the big picture before deciding on where to start.
