Step 1: Analyze the Numbers

Before you remodel or redecorate your recreational room, run some financial numbers to determine whether your project is a smart investment.

The numbers include the estimated costs, home value assessment, financing costs, and other related calculations.

Step 3: Plan the Needed Specs

Step 3 is sketching your ideas on paper (or digitally) and developing the spec plan.

The spec plan determines what type of home recreational design considerations that will be needed. It will also contain the product specifications for each design element such as design layout, spacing, game tables, sound system, room development, decor, other.

You will use the spec plan and architectural design to bid the project out to home contractors.

Step 4: Find Home Contractors

Step 5: Financing Your Project

Step 5 is arranging financing once you select the interior design for your home recreation.

Using the equity value in your home is one of the best financing option for home improvement. Start with a home equity line of credit or a bank equity program.

Other options may include cash-out refinancing, personal savings, and/or financing from home improvement contractors.

Step 6: Manage the Project

Step 6 is where the project begins.

It starts with setting up the work area, installing everything that needs to be implemented, spacing, setup, decor, etc.

It also means working with the contractor, managing the project, and getting the remodeling project inspected before releasing any funds.
