Home Remodeling – San Jose – Process – Establish Your Budget
Every remodeling project has three very broad aspects, which are:
- Degree of Luxury
These are somewhat like the legs of a three legged stool, as adjusting one affects the others.
However, no one has an infinite amount of money so it will serve you will to sit down and determine what you are willing to spend before you start the project.
Please bear in mind, contractors sometimes find things once they start that need attention but were not included in the original scope of work, so it makes sense for your home remodeling budget to be around 10% or 15% less than the funds you have available.
Once you have established this number, you have a frame of reference for deciding what what designs and materials make the most sense for you and your project.
If you generate designs and select material, decide you really like it, then determine you can’t afford it, most people are disappointed and feel like they are giving something up.
On the other hand, if you use your budget number to steer your design and material decisions, you will discover you will look for, and often find ways to stretching your home remodeling budget.
And every time you find a way to do that, you get more than you were expecting and this is a good thing.
