4. Not Measuring TwiceWe’ve all heard  the adage,“measure twice, cut once.” This saying rings true when it comes to home renovations. Supplies, materials and trades are expensive, and the time it takes for delivery and installation can be considerable. Therefore, it is important to always double- and triple-check your work before doing anything permanent.5. Buying Cheap SuppliesSometimes people try to cut corners and skimp on some of the materials involved in a home remodel. While you may save money in the short term, the cheaper supplies will need to be replaced sooner and eventually, you’ll pay more in the long run. If you are over budget and need to save, it’s recommended that you don’t skimp on supplies or materials but instead cut out things that won’t greatly impact the overall design of the remodel. For example, money can be saved on cabinet hardware or the kitchen backsplash. These won’t impact the integrity of the remodel, but will help you stay within your budget.6. Being Too TrendyTrends are significant, but they are also fleeting. When planning a home renovation, steer clear of anything that is too trendy, especially in bathrooms and kitchens, which can be costly to update when the trends change!While the trendy remodel may be of interest to you today, when you decide to sell your home in five or 10 years, the value could take a hit due to the room being outdated. You’ll achieve more lasting results by sticking with timeless choices instead of what’s “trending.”7. Focussing Too Much on DIYIn recent years, the popularity of do-it-yourself home renovations have skyrocketed. There are shows, websites and Youtube channels dedicated to teaching you how to do just about any home renovation you could think of. However, it is important to remember that while the DIY route might be fine for small aesthetic projects, when it comes to the structural integrity of your home, hiring a qualified professional can save you plenty of headaches and money in the long run.As you navigate the home renovation process, keep these seven tips in mind. By hiring a qualified professional, setting a realistic budget, and using quality supplies, your home remodel can pay dividends when it is time to sell.Sources:
